What to do When Buying Packaged Cannabis through Delivery

The legalization of medical marijuana in some states in the country has been very helpful to patients who need it to help ease their symptoms. After these few states has made marijuana and cannabis legal to use medically (and some recreationally), the demand for marijuana and cannabis products has considerably risen. This has led to many marijuana dispensaries being developed to sell marijuana and cannabis products to patients. The dispensaries you will find are regulated by the state government but sometimes, there are some who are trying to get in the action while dodging the many rules and regulations.

Some patients have opted to have their purchases delivered directly to them by ordering through a service. However, just because the mode of distribution is different, doesn’t mean the rules and regulations change. The marijuana and cannabis to be delivered must still be packaged in proper Cannabis Packaging to protect it as rules and regulations dictate. Let’s say you want to order some packaged cannabis and you want it delivered to you, what are the things that you should do?

1.) Prepare the needed requirements – Considering that it is your first time getting packaged cannabis delivered to your home, you will to have the needed requirements so as to avail of the service. You will need to prepare a doctor’s note indicating that you are able to make use of medical marijuana along with your green card and an official ID with your photo. Have a photocopy of each of these ready allowing you to register in the delivery service.

2.) Take note of your method of paying – When it comes to paying for marijuana, you are mostly limited to cash payment. Rarely will a service or dispensary accept credit as a mode of payment for your purchase so it is best to have some cash ready on hand. You might find some dispensaries that allow debit as a payment since the payment will only be shown as a withdrawal. If your state has made marijuana fully legal, you will have an easier time paying and can use credit since restrictions aren’t that strict. But in any case, make sure you have cash ready.

3.) Order from the dispensary or marijuana delivery – When you are ready, contact the service or dispensary and place your order. When contacting, make sure that they allow you to make the payment upon delivery or use your debit card. You do not want to make the payment beforehand only to receive a product with damaged Cannabis Packaging. The advantage with cash on delivery is that you can just ask for a new product if you find it to be damaged.

Once you get the cannabis or marijuana delivered to your doorstep, make sure you do a proper inspection of the product making sure that its Cannabis Packaging is not damaged in any way. Once you are sure that your purchase has arrived to you without any damages and is in great quality, you can make the payment. If not, ask for recourse.
