Toronto’s Annex neighborhood is now home to a new contemporary cannabis store called “Edition” just in time for the holidays.
The flagship store, which opened on December 4 at Dupont and Spadina, aims to provide a luxury shopping experience through its offerings of specially curated cannabis, smoking accessories, playlists, and signature items.
The store was designed in partnership with StudioAC, an award-winning architecture firm, and an emerging name in Toronto’s design scene. Edition’s CEO and founder, Ryan Roebuck, says that it was a highly successful collaboration.
“Every single detail in the space was collaborative and made with intention. We didn’t just pick out some fancy marble and wood on a mood board. We wanted to build spaces that would evoke a feeling of intrigue and wow using high design to create unrivaled experiences in cannabis.”

Studio AC co-founder Jennifer Kudlats says the impetus behind the aesthetic was to join forces with the old and new.
“Rather than the act of designing shelves, displays or sales desks, we wanted to produce a singular design element, a sculpture of sorts that has its own aesthetic quality and massing that simultaneously is inspired by existing conditions while also setting out to define new ones.”

The store ultimately aims to offer the best cannabis shopping experience possible through its sophisticated yet minimalist design, personalized customer service, and selection of high-quality cannabis products via both its online and brick and mortar stores.
Edition shares the belief that “good design, architecture, and art has universal appeal for all consumers and should be present in the identity of all retail experiences, including cannabis,” according to its latest press release.
