An Industry of Deals
The marijuana industry has always revolved around deals, even when it was only in the black market realm. Everyone wanted to find the guy that would give them the most for their money, the strongest products for less, the highest quantity for the least money. Anyone that did know the guy became a hot commodity, and other sellers had to match the kinds of deals going on in their area. But now with medical and recreational legalization there are so many more companies and options than ever before, and the industry is geared to expand even further with new states starting medical and recreational programs as they will no doubt create new edible companies and strains to be tried.
Dispensaries have followed this example of offering similar discounts to the black market days, specific quantity breakdown so that customers can easily order what they are used to even without being familiar with a particular dispensary’s workings. If you walk into a dispensary and ask for an eighth, they’ll more than likely know what you mean. Most dispensaries offer a different deal every day, as well as weekend specials and holiday specific sales, allowing customers to gear their purchasing schedule to make sure they can always get some kind of deal that works for them, while at the same time allowing dispensaries to push specific products on specific days. This can get overwhelming considering the hundreds of dispensaries in any given market, but there is still hope for finding your perfect purchase.
If you are someone that is looking for the best deals there are now a few options for finding just what you need, local newspapers that allow dispensary advertising, dispensary and product company newsletters, and especially deal sites like this one, Cannasaver. Dispensaries can easily update their deals every day to make sure that their specials are constantly broadcast, each special complete with a printable coupon and information on exactly where you need to go to get it. It can also be somewhat more helpful than printed media, as often those sales can have expiration dates that may not even be printed on the ads themselves, and there are many dispensaries with similar enough names to have people walk into your dispensary with another company’s ad.
Deals are also even more of an important element in this industry because of the overpopulation of dispensaries in general, each one fighting to retain customer base rather than just bringing in the occasional big sale. In the past year recreational and medical prices on flower have fallen by almost half of where they were when I first started in the industry, and people are still looking to spend as little as possible to get what they need. Another reason they have become even more important is the recent change to purchasing limits, as companies really need to fight to make sure customers are buying edibles and concentrates from them instead of hitting their limit somewhere else. This is more specific to Colorado but has also been adopted as the default amounts by California.
So even if you just came here for the blogs, check out what this kind of service has the potential to offer you. You may be able to save more than you could have ever imagined on products you buy all the time, or even learn about something more affordable you didn’t realize existed. Sorting through individual ads can take far more time than having the ability to quickly narrow down your search for your next great find.
