How do you ship?
We ship your order safely and discreetly using a range of carriers depending on your individual location and needs. All orders are tracked and shipped via express.
We always ship express so that you can expect your goodies quickly, but please keep in mind that each post carrier is a separate entity with its own business policies. Once the packages are in the hands of the carriers, we cannot direct or influence their delivery time. We can only correspond with them to the best of our ability.
There are a few essential things to take note of here:
If shipping to a house:
Our packages require a signature upon delivery.
If you are not home, the delivery company will try again the following day. If that doesn’t succeed, you’ll need to pick it up at the nearest pick-up depot. Alternatively, you can tell us to do a no-signature drop-off during the checkout page but will have to risk a lost or stolen package. HGA is not responsible for order no-signature drop-off that is damaged, lost or stolen. You can also have it shipped to the closest shipping office and held for pick-up. Please let us know when you order!
If shipping to an apartment or condo:
Our packages require a signature upon delivery. We highly recommend that your concierge sign off on your package. If there is no concierge, you will need to share with us your buzzer code. If you are not home, they will try the following day. If that doesn’t succeed, you’ll need to pick it up at the nearest pick-up depot. You can also have it shipped to the closest shipping office and held for pick-up.
If shipping to a P.O. Box:
Your package will be sent via Canada Post as they are the only postal carriers that have P.O. Box keys.
Is my package shipped safely to me?
Yes, most definitely!
Your order will be vacuum-sealed and discreetly packaged to protect and maintain your privacy. There is no branding on our outside packaging. This protects your purchase and privacy.
How long does it take to receive my order?
Average delivery times to most Canadian locations are between 1 – 3 business days. For remote locations, it takes 3-5 business days depending on area but the specific times could vary.
After your order has been shipped, the tracking number will be emailed to you. You can track your package by following the link in your tracking information email. You will be given information on where the package is and when the estimated delivery time will be.
Delivery times are estimates from the 3rd party mailing service and commence from the date of shipping, rather than the date of order. Delivery times are to be used as a guide only. Once the packages are in the hands of the carriers, we cannot direct or influence their delivery times; we can only correspond with them to the best of our ability.
Unless there are exceptional circumstances, we make every effort to fulfil your order within 1-2 business days of the date of your order. Business day means Monday to Friday, except holidays. Please note we do not ship on Saturday or Sunday.
Do you do same day delivery?
No. We deliver via a variety of mail couriers, and typically guarantee your package to arrive within 1 – 3 business days after being shipped out. However, depending on the season and how busy the postal couriers are, this is unfortunately not always within our control.
Orders placed and paid for before 1 PM PST will be shipped out the same day. Anything placed or paid after this cutoff time will be shipped the following business day.
What happens if my package does not arrive by its estimated delivery time?
Contact us before you do anything else. Leave talking to the carriers to us! That’s our job!
Be patient and keep in mind that delivery times are subject to change via per carrier’s business needs and circumstances, especially during the Holidays. You can rest assured that HGA will do everything that we can to help you get your goodies ASAP.
What happens if the package gets lost in the mail?
Again, please contact us before anything. Leave talking to the carriers to us! We will make sure we get an answer on your missing package. If the package gets returned to us, or if it goes “missing”, then we will refill the order if it was shipped with signature. HGA is not responsible for orders that are sent soon as the order is signed for at the mailing address.
My items were damaged in transport!
If there is any damage to the packaging on delivery, contact us immediately through our live chat or at [email protected]
If the contents of your package were damaged we will ship you a new product free of charge, or reimburse you the cost of the product. Photographic evidence is required to confirm the damages to the product.
High grade Aid cannot replace packages that are requested by the customer to be sent without signature required. Please stick to signature required delivery option.
What if my order gets seized?
If there is any problem with your shipment please contact us and we will look into it for you. We will guarantee delivery of packages sent signature required, and use it by default on all orders unless otherwise instructed.
High Grade Aid cannot replace packages that are requested by the customer to be sent without signature required. Please stick to signature required as it’s best for everyone.

What is the difference between Sativa, Indica, Hybrid, and CBD?
Sativas tend to give a more energetic, cerebral high than Indicas, which are known for ‘couch-locking’ effects. The best way to remember this is Indica= In-Da-Couch.
Hybrids are typically a nice mix of both, although they sometimes lean more towards one side than the other.
CBD is short for cannabidiol, which is a non-psychoactive compound derived from cannabis. CBD products should give you excellent relief for a variety of symptoms including pain, stress, insomnia, anxiety, depression, and chronic illness, without making you feel “high” in the same way that high THC cannabis normally would. CBD can be taken by itself, or alongside THC products to enhance both of their medicinal effects.
Although most of our CBD products contain no THC, high CBD flowers do have a small percentage of THC content as well. This means they may still provide a bit of a buzz and should be used as a 1:1 product, rather than a pure CBD product.
What do you recommend to use for my chronic pain?
To tell you the truth, it really all depends on you! We offer a wide variety of different products in different forms, to suit as many different needs as possible!
To get the full benefits from your cannabis medicine, we recommend using some form of THC and CBD in conjunction, although the amounts will vary from person to person.
If you have questions as to which products are right for you, shoot us an email and one of our staff will be more than happy to point you in the right direction. Remember it can take time to figure the right dosage and method for you.
