5 Things to Expect on Your First Visit to a Weed Shop

If you're like most people, you probably have a lot of questions about what to expect when you visit a weed shop for the first time. Will it be scary? What kind of products will be available? What kind of prices should you expect to pay? This article will answer all of those questions and more! This article will also give you a rundown of everything you need to know before your first visit to a weed shop. So relax and read on - your first experience is sure to be an enjoyable one!

5 Things to Expect on Your First Visit to a Weed Shop

1. Expect To Be Asked For Identification

One of the most crucial things to bring to a marijuana store for either medical or recreational purposes is identification. Your state-issued ID, passport, or any other government-issued photo ID proving your age to be at least 21 will be adequate if you're visiting a recreational dispensary. On the other hand, you should have your state-issued medical marijuana ID card on hand if you're visiting a medicinal-only shop.


2. Have Cash On Hand

While some weed shops are beginning to accept credit and debit cards, the vast majority of them are still cash-only businesses. So, before you head to the store, make sure you have enough cash on hand to cover your purchase. It's also a good idea to have some extra cash on hand in case you want to buy additional products or accessories while you're there. Prices may vary depending on the store, but you can expect to pay more than you expect.


3. Be Prepared To Wait In Line

Marijuana dispensaries are becoming increasingly popular, which means that they can get pretty crowded - especially on weekends and holidays. So, be prepared to wait in line for a bit before you can even enter the store. Once you're inside, you may have to wait again if there are only a few employees working or if it's particularly busy. However, most weed shops try to move customers through the store as quickly and efficiently as possible.


4. Ask Questions

The staff at weed shops are typically very knowledgeable and friendly, so don't be afraid to ask them questions. If you're unsure about what product is right for you, or if you have any questions about the products on the menu, just ask! The staff will be more than happy to help you find what you're looking for and make sure you're getting exactly what you need. Don't be shy - they're there to help!


5. Look at Products Available Online Before Shopping

If you want to save yourself some time, look up the products available at your local weed shop online before you even step foot in the store. This way, you'll know exactly what you're looking for and can go straight to it when you arrive. Most weed shops have their menus listed on their website, so this should be easy enough to do. However, keep in mind that prices may vary slightly between online and in-store menus.



If you’re considering a visit to a weed shop for the first time, there are some things you can expect. For one, be prepared to show identification – most shops will require it. You may also want to have cash on hand, as many dispensaries don’t accept credit cards. And finally, be prepared to wait in line; even if you have an appointment, chances are there will be others ahead of you. That said, it’s worth it! Ask questions and take your time browsing through the products available – you may find something new that you love. Finally, before heading out make sure to look at products online so you have an idea of what to expect when you go into the store.
