Dispensary Prices

Posted by CANNASaver on Friday, 17 December 2021 in Canna Blog

Since the legalization of recreational cannabis use in multiple states, we are seeing new dispensaries open every day - making cannabis more accessible to Americans who want to reap its benefits. However, how do you know if you’re paying the right price for your bud? 

The price of dispensary weed will differ between each dispensary, and many factors determine its cost including, government tax rates, state and municipal laws, geographic location, shipping costs, quality of product, market competition.

We created a small guide so you know what to expect and what prices are fair when purchasing bud from retail vendors.

Weed Dispensary Pricing

Dispensary prices will vary depending on which state you are buying from and the quality of the flower.

Here is the average breakdown:

  • The retail price for a gram of weed will range from $10-15. One gram of bud is approximately 1 or 2 joints, depending on the size.

  • An eighth, which is 3.5 grams, will cost between $30-$40 at the dispensary.

  • A quarter ounce, or 7 grams, will retail at $65-$80 and can roll 14 half-gram joints.

  • An ounce of bud, which equals 28 grams will cost around $200-$350

Here are some other factors that affect the price of dispensary weed:

Weed Prices Throughout Different States

The cannabis market in each state is different, usually, the states who were first to legalize the recreational use of cannabis have the cheapest weed.

This is due to the developed, open, and saturated market.

In the District of Columbia, an ounce of weed retails at $600 whereas, in Oregon, the same amount will go for $200.

Quantity: More is Less

Everyone knows the saying “Less is More,” but that’s not the case with cannabis quantity and price. Usually, the more you buy, the more you’ll save.

Purchasing larger quantities of cannabis will reduce the cost per unit. For example, if you buy an ounce of cannabis, a gram will total at $7-$12, whereas you pay $10-$15 if you choose to buy a gram on its own.

Variety of Strains

Dispensaries offer a wide variety of strains and some strains are of better quality than others.

Furthermore, higher quality strains will cost more due to several factors including:

  • Yield amount (high-quality strains usually have lower yields)

  • Color

  • Trichomes

  • Potency 

  • Cannabinoid and terpene levels

Specialty strains like Loud Dream will cost up to $800 an ounce, but strains like Northern Lights and OG Kush, which are widely available and popular, will retail at around $200-$250. 

Dispensary Prices vs Street Prices

Dispensary prices for weed are higher than what you would find from the street or local dealer because dispensaries have to cover expenses such as employee wages, rent, and utilities.

It costs money to run a storefront, and to make a profit - dispensaries must mark up the prices of their products.

Additionally, licensing, taxation, and regulation rates related to the sale of marijuana are much higher than those of tobacco and alcohol, making legal cannabis much more expensive than illegal cannabis.

Savvy Stoner: Best Dispensaries in Denver for Edibles Daily Specials

Looking for the best dispensaries in Denver for edibles? There are lots of one-time coupons and edibles deals you can get periodically on CannaSaver, but which stores have the best daily specials that you can count on week after week? Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays are the best days to shop for marijuana edibles, but if you know where to go, there are edibles deals to be found every day of the week. Here is the Savvy Stoner's roundup of the best dispensaries in Denver for edibles and daily specials.

Monday: Medicine Man Denver is one of the best dispensaries in Denver for edibles on a Monday. They offer a fantastic Monday edibles deal—when you buy an edible on a Monday, you'll get a second edible at a discount of 50% off. Medicine Man Denver sells both retail and medical marijuana, and they carry many edibles including the Leafs by Snoop line of edibles and Canyon strawberry lemonade suckers. Platte Valley Dispensary is another one of the best dispensaries in Denver for edibles on a Monday, although their deal isn't quite as good as the deal at Medicine Man. At Platte Valley Dispensary, when you buy an edible on a Monday, you can get another edible for 25% off the usual price. If you're in the Colorado Springs area, Quality Choice Alternative Care Dispensary also has a Monday buy one, get one half off on edibles special, and they carry a large selection of edibles that includes products like the marijuana-infused Monkey Bar by Incredibles. They are a locally owned and family operated medical marijuana dispensary, so unless you have your red card, you won't be able to shop there.

Tuesday: Herbal Remedies, a medical marijuana dispensary in Lakewood, Colorado near Denver, offers a 25% off discount on any edibles purchase made on a Tuesday. Herbal Remedies carries Blue Kudu, CannaPunch, Flower of Life Infused Products, Grandma's Chronic Goodies, Dixie Elixirs, and many other popular edibles brands. Herbal Remedies is located on Alameda Avenue in Lakewood and they're open seven days a week, but please note that they do only sell medical marijuana, as recreational marijuana sells are not allowed in the city of Lakewood due to a local ordinance.

Thursday: Another good edibles deal for medical marijuana patients can be found at Karmaceuticals. Stop by Karmaceuticals on Thursdays for their Thursday BlackJack game. Karmaceuticals members can win a marijuana cookie and a gram of flower, while non-members can score the free marijuana cookie. Karmaceuticals only sells medical marijuana, but they're open 365 days a year from 11:00a.m. to 7:00p.m. Quality Choice Alternative Care Center is also one of the best dispensaries for edibles on a Thursday, although they're located all the way down in Colorado Springs. Their “Thirsty Thursdays” special allows patrons to buy any marijuana infused beverage and get a second drink for half price. Quality Choice carries marijuana-infused sodas like Keef Cola and cannabis edibles like Dabba Chocolate. Dabba Chocolate is a cannabis-infused mint chocolate that was developed several years ago in Boulder, Colorado. They took home an award at the 2012 High Times Cannabis Cup, and since then, their products have become available in many marijuana dispensaries in Boulder, Denver, and all around the state of Colorado.

Everyday edibles deals in Denver: If planning ahead isn't your strong suit, just head to The Joint by Cannabis, where you get 20% off your edibles purchase any day of the week. The Joint by Cannabis is a recreational and medical marijuana dispensary located in the Highlands neighborhood of Denver. They're ranked as one of the top ten dispensaries in Colorado. Edibles in stock include Dixie Elixirs, CannaPunch, Wana, and more. Wana is a Colorado brand that got their start way back in 2010. They create a whole line of artisan edibles including gummies, rolls, caramels, and jewels. Wana is the maker of Colorado's favorite sour gummies, according to the Wana Brands website.
