Where to Shop for 420: 2024 Guide

420 shopping is a science. It’s all about matching your preferences with the perfect shopping experience. And in today’s modern legal industry, there’s more ways to shop and indulge than ever. 

Let’s dive into ways to choose your 420 dispo, plus tips on 420 shopping and our favorite retailers to visit over the holiday.   

How to choose the right dispensary on 420

There are tons of choices on where to buy your weed on 420. But what you may not realize is you can find the perfect spot to fit your desired shopping experience. 

Here are the top questions to ask yourself before picking where to buy: 

How do I want to make the purchase? 

You can place cannabis orders online and pre-pay using Aeropay. You can also order cannabis for delivery in certain states - either online or over the phone. 

If you’re leaning toward shopping inside a physical dispensary, then consider whether you want to get in and out or if you’re looking for a more curated experience involving guidance from a budtender. 

Additionally, you may want to consume your products on-site at a consumption lounge. While there are only a handful of these across the country, they’re a growing trend and stellar way to celebrate this weed holiday. 

What kind of products & deals do I want?

Virtually everything is going to be on sale over 420. In fact, 69% of all 420 transactions included a discount in 2023 according to Flowhub. 

However, different dispensaries will lean more heavily into discounting different brands. This is because they work out deals with their vendors on certain products and leverage those deals to offer lower prices. 

Browse deals online to find the perfect fit. You may be looking for bundles of complementary products like flower, paper, and lighters. Or maybe you just want to keep it simple and grab a pack of edibles. 

Either way, there’s a store out there with an amazing deal for you. 

Where do I normally shop? 

420 is a great opportunity to show some love to your local shop, especially if you already have a loyalty membership. Many retailers offer bonus loyalty points on 420 and many dispensaries tend to remember who came through for their holiday shopping. 

420 shopping tips

When you’re out in the craziness of 420 shopping, it’s easy to get caught up in the madness. Instead of running around like a rookie, here’s how to shop and celebrate like a pro: 

1. Tip your budtenders! These folks are the backbone of the dispensary and work long, hard hours over the 420 weekend. Give them a tip if you’re allowed! 

2. Don’t hold up the line, but don’t sacrifice education. You’ll probably run into a queue during your 420 shopping spree, but you’ll still be able to ask any questions and still get in and out quickly. To do this, make sure you have your questions, ID, and payment method ready BEFORE it’s your turn. 

3. Consume responsibly. Obviously, 420 is about lighting up and celebrating. But there’s nothing worse than “greening out”. Learn from our own mistakes and start low and slow.

4. Support the cannabis industry. Even though it looks glamorous, operating a dispensary business is hard work. There are more regulations and taxes for these retailers than any other industry in the US. Be sure to show up and show out for your cannabis retailer of choice.
