Do: Know the Cannabis Laws in Massachusetts

Before shopping online at a cannabis dispensary, it’s important that you understand the laws.

You must also have a government ID in order to pick up your online purchase from a cannabis dispensary. There are purchasing amount limits as well.

Don’t: Forget the Correct Massachusetts Cannabis Documents

As stated above, you will need to bring a government issued ID with you when finalizing your online cannabis purchase. While we’re on the topic of what to bring with you when visiting a cannabis dispensary to pick up an online order or shop in person, don’t forget that most marijuana dispensaries in Massachusetts accept cash or debit cards. Dispensaries like UpTop also conveniently have an ATM should you need it. 

Do: Browse Products Before Purchasing Cannabis Online

One of the biggest benefits of shopping for marijuana online in Massachusetts is that you don’t have the same pressure while browsing the internet as you would in a dispensary. Browsing for cannabis products online allows you to read each description, study each cannabis strain, and make an educated purchase so you’ll have the experience you want to have.

Don’t: Show Up Early to Pick Up Your Online Cannabis Order

A lot of people think that once they’ve placed their online cannabis order that they can just head straight to the dispensary and pick it up. That’s not exactly how it works. When checking out online, the Massachusetts dispensary will ask you to choose a desired pick-up time. It’s important that you adhere to your chosen time slot. Showing up early and asking for your order before it is ready can mess up the order queue for all customers. You do not want to be that person! Make sure you don’t show up early or late to pick up your online cannabis order. Right on time is just right!

Purchasing cannabis products online can be a quick, easy, and convenient experience, as long as you know what to do.
