Marijuana Dispensaries in USA

Marijuana Dispensaries exist because federal law prohibits cannabis from being prescribed and filled at pharmacies. What is a dispensary without the marijuana? A place that specializes in carrying and selling a specific type of product. So, a marijuana dispensary is where you want to go when you need any type of cannabis product. There are recreational as well as medical marijuana dispensaries depending on which state you are in. We’ll go over the differences between the two as well as everything you should know about a marijuana dispensary.

What Is A Medical Dispensary?

The first public marijuana dispensary in the United States is the San Francisco Cannabis Buyers Club which the late, great Dennis Peron operated when it started in 1992. Since then, hundreds of medical dispensaries have opened all around California. There are now medical dispensaries in more than half of the states in the country.

How To Enter A Medical Marijuana Dispensary

Upon entering, there is usually a receptionist that you’ll have to check-in with before being allowed into the dispensing area.

The receptionist will ask for your ID and a medical marijuana recommendations or ID card from a doctor. If your ID is from another state you may be asked to provide proof of residency. Many dispensaries offer deals and discounted prices to medical marijuana patients. Anyone that smokes regularly may end up saving money in the long-run by purchasing a medical marijuana card.

What Products Are At Dispensaries?

The products you see in a dispensary will vary from state to state. For example, states like New York don’t allow dispensaries to have smokable flowers. You’ll only find cannabis derivatives like tinctures or vape pen cartridges.

Recreational dispensaries will have cannabis in flower form as well as concentrated forms like kief, BHO, sauce, budder, RSO, CO2 and everything you can find at a medical dispensary. There are also edibles if you want a longer high without the smoke.

Now you’ll have an idea of what to expect when visiting a state with legalized marijuana. If you’re planning to purchase regularly, a medical recommendation could save you some money in the long run. If you’re just visiting, you’re better off with a recreational dispensary visit.
