Dispensaries in DC

March 31, 2023 3 min read

Dispensaries in DC have been opening up all throughout the city. It’s become a popular area of attraction for those in search of that chronic.

There are many types of DC dispensaries and some are more preferred than others. Factors like price, quality, and aesthetics all effect whether or not clients are satisfied.

If you’re unfamiliar about dispensaries in the area, follow along, and read more about the different types of dispensaries, how they work, and what the offer.


Recreational Dispensaries in Washington DC

There are a growing number of recreational dispensaries in Washington DC, but only one in particular is worth mentioning for today.

But first, what’s a DC recreational dispensary?

It’s a storefront that supplies different types and strains of marijuana for those in need. How is this any different from a medical marijuana dispensary?

DC weed from a medical dispensary requires a medical card in order to purchase cannabis. This is much different than a recreational one, since it falls under the I71 compliant law, therefore, allowing anyone over the age of 21+ to ‘gift’ marijuana and other cannabis treats without the need for a medical card.

This makes the recreational dispensaries more appealing to most, simply due to the fact that weed is more obtainable. In order to go to one of these dispensaries, you must:

  • Have a valid ID.
  • Be 21+ years of age to enter
  • Must operate within I71 compliant laws (No buying or purchasing cannabis or cannabis related products.)
  • Use proper verbiage (ask for gifts and not for weed.)

It’s important to emphasize that under I71, you are not allowed to buy or purchase any amount of marijuana. Because of this, weed is instead an optional gift to another individual after they purchase a non-related marijuana product; art prints, t-shirts, socks, sweaters.
