Can You Buy Weed Online? And Is It Safe?

We live in an age where pizza, groceries, and mail can all be summoned with the push of a button. But what about marijuana? Can you buy weed online?

Buy Weed Online

We live in an age where pizza, groceries, mail, and even a car ride to the bar can all be summoned with the push of a button. But what about marijuana? For those cannabis enthusiasts who want the convenience to buy weed online, Green Rush Daily is here to help. We’ll give you the rundown on how to navigate cyberspace to get your goods safely delivered to your doorstep.

Have A Medical Marijuana Card

To minimize your risk of getting in trouble with the law, we highly encourage you to seek out a medical marijuana card before endeavoring in any online purchases of the plant. Luckily, half the states in the union allow for the use of medical marijuana. Ab Hanna here at GRD has a guide on how to get your medical marijuana card in many of these states. Once you’ve got that covered, your next step is finding a reputable website from which to purchase.

Finding The Right Site For You

Once you’ve got your medical marijuana card, you’re going to want to find a good distributor to purchase from. Given that cannabis is still illegal at the federal level, buying from an out of state website is generally a bad idea. If you’re buying weed online from across state lines, you may be invoking federal statutes and unduly getting yourself into a legal bind. Therefore, find a website that distributes from within the same state as you. Ultimately, that means that some may not be able to buy weed online – yet.

As with any other purchase made online, you’re also going to want to do your research. Do a quick Google search on the website you’re interested in: do they require you have a medical marijuana card? If so, that’s a good thing: you only want to buy from a certified medical marijuana dispensary. Is there a lot of information available about them? If not, keep searching: little information about a distributor means it’s likely a scam or sting.

Internet forums can be used as a valuable tool to assess the legitimacy of a website. While you shouldn’t trust a random person on the internet, a consensus on a website’s legitimacy from a variety of different people across multiple different forums is typically a good sign. Also, a reputable distributor will also have a professional and tidy-looking website. If the website is confusing or poorly done, it’s probably not legit.

Lastly, the prices for products will be reasonable. As the old adage goes: if something seems too good to be true, it usually is. Be wary of websites offering vast quantities of bud for cheap.

The Final Hit

While you can certainly buy weed online, there are some pitfalls that need to be avoided. If you can reasonably go to a local dispensary instead, that is usually the easier course of action. However, buying online can offer a wider variety of strains and products and, once you’ve found a reputable source, is unmatched in convenience. Trust your instincts and follow this guide, and you should have no problem finding someone to deliver your bud to your door.
