Cannabis It’s Our Passion, and the reason we exist… Burb is a BC-based private retailer of recreational cannabis. We’re obsessed with high quality flower and the culture this industry has created over the decades. Burb Poco Place Located on the border between Port Coquitlam and Coquitlam, in a strip mall beside Michaels and Pomme Market, our Poco Place store packs a punch with value-based products in every major category. This small but mighty store is the closest access point to Coquitlam Center Mall and the Millennium Line SkyTrain and we have some bomb-ass pho next door too. An interesting note, the City of Coquitlam hasn’t yet allowed cannabis retail so this store, along with our Port Moody location, is proud to service the Coquitlamer’s!

Another way of looking at the economic contribution is that for every $1.00 of revenue or capital expenditure the industry adds $1.09 to Canada's GDP which shows a positive return which all successful industries need to have.
