What is a Dispensary?

A dispensary is a store that sells special items or dispenses the specialized items.

In 2014 the first recreational dispensary, 3D Cannabis opened it’s doors in Colorado. As of 4-1-19 33 states have medical dispensaries and 10 states have recreational dispensaries.

Dispensaries are an excellent place for patients and recreational smokers alike to find the cannabis that best suits their needs!
