In light of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) still present, Ashario is more committed than ever to playing its part to fight against the spread of the virus and minimizing the risk of transmission for our team, clients and community. As we work to continue to provide service to our customers, we would like to keep you updated on our current status.



Ashario's top priority is the safety and well-being of our valued visitors and teams. We are closely monitoring the province and local authorities’ guidance and are implementing measures to promote a safe and healthy environment. These measures include frequently washing hands/using hand sanitizer, and regularly disinfecting all high touch surfaces and high traffic areas in our stores. 


While COVID-19 is impacting our community, here are some ways you can consume cannabis responsibly.


Don’t share joints, vapes, pipes or bongs. You may be passing more than you think. COVID-19 spreads via respiratory droplets released when you speak, cough or sneeze and is also left on shared items such as forks and glasses — or joints, vapes, pipes and bongs. You may pick up the virus by coming into contact with contaminated surfaces, either by putting them in your mouth, or by touching them and then touching your mouth, nose or eyes.

Wash your hands often. Ontario Ministry of Health recommends frequent hand-washing with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after using the washroom, when you come in from the outside and before and after preparing food. When soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.

If you’re sick – skip the smoke. It has been reported that COVID-19 causes infections in the nose, throat and lungs. Since we know that over time, smoking cannabis can impact your lung health, it’s probably best to take a break from smoking or vaping until you’re feeling better.
