4 Misconceptions About Buying Your Weed Online

November 20, 2020

Some people are not comfortable buying weed online because they don’t quite understand how it works, or they think it’s a scam. Luckily, I am here to clear up any misunderstandings. Here are the most common misconceptions people have about buying weed online.

If you live in Kansas and were planning on ordering some weed from, say Colorado, then you can throw that plan out the window. Any online dispensary that you are buying through has to go through a lot of legal hoops before they are allowed to go forward with selling their product. You can rest assured that what you are doing is perfectly legal.

It would be more convenient to have your own weed when you need it. Download our free Grow Bible for more information on growing marijuana.

It’s not Safe

When people think of buying cannabis online, they usually picture buying from some shady dude on Craigslist, who ends up taking your money and scamming you. You know, a drug deal. Buying cannabis online is perfectly safe, again as long as you are buying from an online dispensary. Your information will not be stolen and/or sold, or used against you in any way. Buying online is actually more discreet than the alternative.

You can’t enjoy weed if you don’t have any. Our seed bank has an extensive selection of high-quality marijuana seeds.

They’ll Deliver Anywhere

Surprisingly, a lot of people think that when you buy cannabis online it doesn’t matter if you live in a legal state or not, they will deliver to you. This is definitely not the case. Again, if you don’t live in a state where cannabis is legal for recreational or medical use, then an online dispensary will absolutely not deliver to you. That would be breaking the law obviously, and such a violation would cause them to lose their license and get arrested. Sorry people who live in states where cannabis isn’t legal. Your day will come soon. This is why you should get involved in your state’s legalization effort.

You Can Maybe Pay With a Card

One of the most convenient things about online shopping is your ability to enter your credit or debit card information, place your order, and wait for your purchase to be brought to your door. Buying weed online has all the convenience of regular online shopping, except for using your debit card of course. It’s not because dispensaries don’t want to take your card, they can’t. Cannabis is still illegal under federal law, and this stops banks from doing business with dispensaries, growers, etc. So, how are you supposed to pay? In cash usually. Some dispensaries are starting to accept cryptocurrencies through the use of apps. It’s not as inconvenient as you think. As long as you have the cash when your goods are delivered, you are good to go!

There’s nothing wrong or unsafe with buying cannabis online, as long as you are buying from the right people! Never ever buy weed off of a site like Craiglist, or through social media like Facebook is asking to get busted. Be smart. School’s out!

FAQ About Misconceptions on Buying Weed Online

Can an online dispensary deliver cannabis to me regardless if I live in a legal state or not?

No, you have to be residing in a state where cannabis is legal for recreational or medical use. No online dispensary would want to break the law and get a violation as they would lose their license and get arrested if caught.

Why don’t dispensaries accept payment by debit or credit card?

This is because cannabis is still not considered legal under federal law, and this stops banks from doing business with dispensaries, growers, etc. You’ll usually have to pay in cash.

Can I safely buy weed from sellers on Craigslist or on social media?

It’s not advisable to buy weed online from shady sellers anywhere else to avoid being scammed. The safest way to go is buy from an online dispensary who already has a reputation for shipping cannabis and offers guaranteed and discreet shipping.

    If you think the roads are dangerous with people driving and texting, wait until they are impaired as a result of smoking pot and driving. INSANE!!

    A site called Farmflowers6 is possibly not legitimate at all. Reading comments, saw many said they never got product. I tried to email them 6 times about the purchase I made, no answer. They blocked many of us from comments […]Read More
