The East Coast of Canada may have been the first place to get cannabis edibles, but the east end of Toronto has been getting considerably less love when it comes to cannabis retail.

The city’s newest brick-and-mortar pot shop, Canvas, opened the doors to its 730 Danforth Avenue location on Monday, and it has nothing but love for Greektown and the surrounding area.

“I grew up in the Danforth area, so I have a deep connection to the neighbourhood,” said owner Helene Vassos in a previous release. “Because of that, I took great care and attention to build a store that fits with the existing culture.”

“We wanted to create a very different aesthetic, using warm hues and natural elements for a very subtle, stylized elegance.”

The location is now open for business, and Grow stopped by to take a look. Check it out before you stop by for a peek yourself.
