The Hampshire Canna store sits on London Road, a busy main pass on the way into Portsmouth town centre.
Earlier this week I took a trip down to the area to visit Sy and Perry from Hampshire Cannabis Community at their brand new retail location.
After taking a trip to Otherside Cannabinoid Dispensary and marvelling at the new products on offer, I was excited to see what a Portsmouth-based headshop founded in 2020 would look like, especially one run by a core member of the UK Cannabis community.
Sy Dignam has been active in the cannabis community for at least 8 years, running annual cannabis awareness events on Eastney Beach which we have seen grow year after year.
A couple of years ago we interviewed Sy on this channel, and you can watch that and read the transcript here.
The Hampshire Canna headshop sells glassware for smoking, vaping and dabbing, alongside CBD products, cannabis merchandise and more.
They have a fridge full of CBD drinks, CBD chocoloate that “everyone says gives excellent results, loads come back for more”.
They even have a dab station with an enail and a variety of CBD extacts on offer, alongside CBD coffee for patrons who wish to purchase a hot beverage.
Along the front of the shop is a reading space, with various cannabis magazines and books. There is a lot to do here for a cannabis enthusiast!
Working alongside Sy in the shop is Perry Toovey, a local resident and member of Hampshire Cannabis Community.
Perry is also a passionate member of the UK cannabis community and has dedicated much of the past few years to the cause, raising awareness for cannabis legalisation going on campaigns with Hampshire Cannabis community including their street walks to inform the public about cannabis.
More recently, Perry got a Hampshire Canna t-shirt into the hands of Wiz Khalifa, and he has also travelled with Sy to find CBD suppliers in mainland Europe.
Whilst I was in the store a regular popped in for a dab and a chat, and it was good to talk with him about his perception of the shop and CBD in general. He also says he enjoys the CBD chocolate they told me about, but admits he often goes with advice on what is good. “Very different to how it used to be” he says.
I had a really fun time visiting Hampshire Canna’s shop; this is a great location for people near Portsmouth to visit for cannabinoid info, so be sure to head there for your next glass piece, or even just a CBD coffee and a dab if you are in the area.
You can find Hampshire Canna at 450 London Road, Portsmouth.
