Here are the best places for take-out food near Calgary's cannabis stores

Oct 17 2018, 4:41 pm

From maple to hemp leaves — the leaf colour that Canadians are known for has been changing this Autumn. That’s right, as of yesterday Canada is the second country in the world to legalize recreational cannabis.

There are so many kinds of food that pair well with every wine that it all becomes confusing. Luckily, the best food that pairs with weed is… food.

Celebrate the legalization of weed the right way — by getting high and stuffing your face with whatever eats are closest to you.

That’s why we’ve compiled a list of the best takeout food within walking distance of the two legal cannabis dispensaries in Calgary, which also just so happen to be within walking distance of each other.

Both of the legal cannabis stores are within two kilometres from each other on MacLeod Trail. Here’s where you can grab take-out food while you’re walking along the MaCloudy Trail.

Let’s start with the closest places to each dispensary:
