West Coast Bud VS Herb Approach

Are you trying to decide between West Coast Bud and Herb Approach? If you were searching online for a brand to buy from, you probably stumbled across these two at some point. Both are pretty well-known options in Canada.

When you are trying to find the best online dispensary, there are some aspects you want to keep an eye out for. In this article, we will compare these two companies and show you which is the best option.

We will include everything you could possibly want to know. We spent a lot of time thinking about who was the best choice. So, how do these two weed delivery brands compare to each other? Let us find out!


Quality Control

First of all, we want to talk about the quality control of both of these companies. When you buy weed online, you do not get to see the product before you buy it. That means that it is crucial you can be sure that it is a quality item.

When the weed you ordered lacks the quality you paid for, you are losing money. Plus, you are probably not getting all of the health benefits you want. This is how they compare.

West Coast Bud

We always do our best to provide the best quality control possible. We test the products we put out for sale before you ever see them; that way, you know nothing of lousy quality is in our store. We want you to get the highest quality products from us.

Our online shop is able to provide you with medical-grade cannabis because we buy through a certified provider- meaning we have some of the best options on the online weed market.

When you find a product that you enjoy using from us, you can rest assured that it will still be the same high-quality next time you purchase it. Other companies are not consistent with their quality control- but we are.

Herb Approach

From what we have seen, customers are happy with Herb Approach’s quality control. Reviews show that customers like the orders that they receive and state that everything arrived fresh.

The only complaint we saw was that someone’s order was squished. We think that this would be from the delivery service and not the brand itself, however.


Are They Certified?

When buying weed online, you want to be sure that you are buying from a store that only offers certified products. That way, you are confident that you are getting quality, tested items every single time.

West Coast Bud

Yes, West Coast Bud only sells products that are approved through the Marijuana Medical Access Regulation (MMAR). This means that our products are always going to be of the highest quality in order for them to pass the MMAR.

When the products are certified, you also know that they have the benefits they advertise on their labels. Since marijuana is a new industry on the market, not everyone is following the rules quite yet. So, we believe that it is crucial to only buy from regulated sources.

You can also easily find the potency of our products in our store. Other online websites do not go through the effort to list them or just have no idea what the THC% and CBD%’s are.

Herb Approach

Herb Approach is licensed to sell marijuana- so you do not have to worry about being in a legal “gray area” when you order from them. The company also has the appropriate licenses so that you can buy from either without worry.

That means that you are much more likely to get a high-quality item from them.

So far, it seems as though West Coast Bud and Herb Approach are very similar. That is until you start looking at the prices in both of their stores. This is where the most significant differences begin to pop up.



When trying to pick between two stores, everyone is going to be thinking about how much each brand costs. Consumers usually are concerned about if they are getting the best deal or if there is something better for their wallet out there.

Herb Approach has a limit on what you need to buy before they send out your order. How much is it? Well, $100.

You are forced to order a minimum of $100 before they will send your order to you. We think this is pretty ridiculous.

Not everyone can afford to spend that much at once. Most people prefer to buy their items in smaller sets rather than in bulk. After all, your weed can dry up if you do not use it fast enough. Plus, the customer is less likely to branch out and try new products when they already have to spend so much.

This is the information we were able to find on pricing for 1 oz of flower:

  • West Coast Bud average for 1 oz: $160.00 to $230.00 (before sale prices)
  • Herb Approach average for 1 oz: $180.00 to $260.00 (before sale prices) 

The difference in cost does not seem like that much; however, keep in mind that you need to spend at least $100 every order with Herb Approach. That would make it impossible to buy an eighth (3.5g) for $40 like you can on West Coast Bud.

Doing so saves you money, and you do not have to worry about your order going to waste. Herb Approach just seems to be more geared towards ordering more at one time, but not everyone wants to be forced to shop like that.

Next, we are going to compare prices on the same strains from each website:

Girl Scout Cookies

Girl Scout Cookies is a hybrid strain. It can help alleviate feelings of depression, energize and relax you. Overall, this is a substantial strain. But how much does it cost for each store?

  • West Coast Bud: $25.00 to $99.00 (when not on sale)
    • A quarter (7g) costs $25.00 before sales prices.
  • Herb Approach: $24.00 to $280.00 (when not on sale)
    • A quarter (7g) costs $72.00 before sales prices.

So, while they both seem to start at a similar cost, they are not at all in the same range. The prices quickly escalate with Herb Approach. They are selling the same strain and weight for $72, while West Coast Bud is selling it for $25. 

This difference is impressive, mostly because they are both high-quality and certified products. Why pay almost $50 more for the same item?

If you want to save the most money, you could buy a West Coast Bud product that was on sale- we offer frequent discounts on our store.


Promotional Deals

Speaking of sales, we thought it would be worthwhile to cover the promotions both sites offer as part of our discussion on pricing.

West Coast Bud

West Coast Bud is almost always having some kind of sale or promotion on our store. We want to offer you the best deals, so we are still coming up with new ways to do just that.

Our sales are always good too, and they significantly lower the cost of your order. This makes us a great choice if you have to stay within a specific budget. We can get you your products through special promotions and deals very frequently.

We offer a unique rewards program where you can earn points, a referral program, and a free gram on your first order. There are so many ways to save on our website, so you may want to check us out when you are finished with this article.

We know that we offer more sales and a better value than Herb Approach, but this is what you can expect from them.

Herb Approach

Herb approach does not typically offer sales. Most of the time, they are going to be seasonal deals or maybe stock end sales. This does not give you many opportunities to score a good deal with them.

This brand does offer points that you can exchange for rewards, however. Many of their customers seemed to enjoy this feature. Keep in mind that you still have to reach $100 to place an order and earn your points before they can ship it out.



Considering all of that, we are sure you can see how West Coast Bud is the best option. We have Herb Approach thoroughly beat when it comes to the cost of our inventory.

Both companies offer you high-quality items that are delivered fast. However, we offer you the same level of quality as Herb Approach for significantly less money. Plus, we will not ask you to spend $100 just to get your order.

Overall, West Coast Bud is going to be the better choice for many people. We hope you consider ordering from us on our online store or browsing our products.
