Things have changed rapidly since the outset of my state’s medical marijuana program in early 2017.
We only had three available dispensaries to buy cannabis from when I first got my medical marijuana card.
Since only three companies had licenses to dispense and sell cannabis, you had to rely on cannabis delivery services to get your marijuana products if you weren’t lucky enough to live near one of the only physical stores. There was one cannabis dispensary with free delivery on all orders to virtually anywhere in the state, but the other two cannabis stores always charged for these services. If you didn’t meet an order minimum like $75 or $100, there was a $15 to $25 charge for the delivery fee. Things have changed drastically in the last five years and now most major cities in this state have five or six different cannabis dispensary companies within their city limits. While cannabis delivery is convenient when you’re stuck at home sick, I prefer driving to cannabis dispensaries so I can get the selection of the freshest products available. The local cannabis dispensaries sometimes have new marijuana products in stock daily. It pays to look because no one wants to buy cannabis flower products that have been sitting on a shelf for over six months. If you make a cannabis delivery order, you might not get the selection of the freshest products available each and every time. Not to mention the cannabis dispensaries in my area are often hosting sales that change daily. You never know when your favorite products will be listed for 25% off or more than their daily price. Those are deals that aren’t good to pass up.
