Massachusetts Dispensary FAQs – First Time Visiting a MA Dispensary

Nervous about your first time visiting a MA dispensary? No need to feel uneasy! The folks at Green Choice Cannabis are here to walk you through your first visit and every visit after if needed. Sometimes, all it takes to feel a little better about your first cannabis dispensary visit is familiarizing yourself with the answers to some of the most common questions. We’ve compiled a list of Massachusetts dispensary FAQs to help you get some insight before heading to the dispensary.


What should you take to the dispensary with you?

The main thing you need to bring with you to the dispensary to make a purchase is your valid, up-to-date driver’s license or other government-issued photo ID. Of course, you will also need to bring cash or an acceptable form of payment to pay for your purchase. Most dispensaries have an ATM available if you forget and only bring your card, but credit and debit cards may not be accepted.

How much weed can you buy in MA?

Massachusetts cannabis laws explicitly state how much you are allowed to purchase when you visit a dispensary. Adult customers are allowed to purchase up to one ounce of cannabis flower, five grams of cannabis concentrates (including extracts and tinctures), or 500mg of THC-infused edibles.

Can you just walk right into any dispensary in MA?

The state set forth a lot of regulations when setting up the legal cannabis framework, and some of that does affect a customer’s shopping experience. One element of that is you can’t just walk into a dispensary and make a purchase. Instead, you will first be greeted at the door or within an entry vestibule with a checkpoint by an employee who will verify your age. Then you will be allowed to enter the dispensary.

Can I visit more than one MA dispensary a day?

Massachusetts cannabis laws do not restrict how many dispensaries you can visit in any given time frame. Therefore, you’re free to check out as many places as you want. However, you will be held to the purchase limit laws no matter how many dispensaries you visit. For example, if you buy three grams of cannabis concentrates from one place, you will only be able to purchase two grams of concentrates at the second dispensary within the same day.

What will it be like inside an MA dispensary?

Shopping for cannabis is a lot like shopping for other products but with a few caveats. Dispensaries keep products securely held within cases or behind counters instead of out for public perusal. When you initially step into the dispensary, you are allowed to evaluate these products from a distance or by looking at a digital menu. A budtender will be there to give you a closer look at the products you want to examine closer. For example, if you’re looking for a fragrant strain full of terps, the budtender may allow you to see and smell some of the flower available.

How do you order cannabis online from a dispensary?

We can’t speak for every dispensary in MA, but Green Choice makes online ordering as simple as possible. You simply access our online menu and explore products from different categories like edibles, pre-rolls, and flower. All prices and quantities are clearly marked on the menu. Make your selections and add the desired quantities to your cart. Once you have double-checked your selections and cost, proceed through the checkout process. You’ll be asked to provide details like your name, phone number, and date of birth. Once you place the order, our team will get your order ready for pickup when you arrive.

Are you allowed to buy cannabis in MA if you’re not a resident?

You sure can. As long as you are a verifiable adult 21 years of age or older with a valid, government-issued ID, you can purchase cannabis. It will not matter if your ID was issued by an out-of-state government or what your address is. Just keep in mind that it is still illegal to make your way across state lines with cannabis in your vehicle or on your person.

Will MA dispensaries track you?

MA dispensaries do utilize a tracking system that is mandated by the state to keep track of daily purchase limits. This system is purely to ensure customers stay within their legally allowable amounts and all cannabis purchases are accounted for. This tracking system is continuous between all the dispensaries in MA. Therefore, all dispensaries will know how much you can legally purchase during your visit.
