Fans may remember them as Hobo Cannabis; after some controversy, they changed their name to Dutch Love. The Donnelly Group (a parent company that owns many nightclubs and taverns in Vancouver) owns the Dutch Love chain. However, you can find Dutch Love locations in Alberta, BC, Ontario and Saskatchewan.

Dutch Love brands its self as your neighbourhood flower shoppe. True to the mantra, Dutch Love cannabis shops don’t display many — or any — cannabis products. Instead, shelves are full of accessories. Budtenders keep bud behind the desk. They are there to help you find whatever you need. Dutch Love has also teamed up with brands like Ace Valley to offer co-branded tote bags found in stores.

Fire and Flower
