So you want to buy cannabis online but Covid-19 has made it hard for you to access your medication, and with the Government shutdown of licensed dispensaries, you must now turn to sketchy online dispensaries for help.
Buying weed online can be dangerous if you’re not careful, some scammers falsely advertise amazing deals for premium marijuana, but instead, you end up paying top dollar for low-quality flower. That’s not right, and Budmart is here with a dope ass guide to make sure you never get scammed.
Below we’ll outline some ways to help you buy cannabis online.
Things you should pay attention to before buying from an online dispensary:
1.) Always check for reviews:
Reviews are the easiest way to verify if an online dispensary is legit. Here are a few places to check out reviews.
First off, Leafly and Weedmaps. These two sites are a great resource to verify how legitimate an online dispensary is. Most online dispensaries usually have a profile where customers can check out products and even write reviews on everything from customer service to the quality of their cannabis online.
Second, be wary of the reviews you see on a company’s website. Reviews can easily be faked to make a company look better than it is. Take what you read with a grain of salt, they might just be made up by the company themselves.
2.) Check for lab reports:
Lab reports are underrated and often neglected due to cost. A lab report shows transparency and also quality. No one’s going to put up a shitty lab report and expect sales.
Instead, honest and dedicated online dispensaries will go above and beyond to educate their customers about their products. Product descriptions and pictures can only reveal so much, but a lab report reveals more in-depth information like THC content, cannabinoids, terpenes, and even possible pesticides. A company that invests in lab reports knows the value of being transparent with their customers.
3.) Ordering a smaller amount to try:
If you’ve gone through and checked out a company’s reviews and possibly even seen a lab report, you’re on the right track. Before purchasing a large quantity, we recommend starting with a smaller purchase to ensure you don’t get scammed. It’s easier to lose $40 than to lose $200.
Once you’ve received your first purchase, be sure to check your order is as described on the site. Online dispensaries are notorious for taking deceivingly good pictures or stealing them from their competition. On top of that, make sure the product description is accurate to your order. If they say things like nice, dense buds with a strong citrus smell for example, and your purchase is loosey-goosey and smells like mold. Well, my friend, it’s safe to say you’ve been scammed buying cannabis online.
4.) Check out their social media profiles.
Social media is a powerful tool in determining how legit an online dispensary is. Just like the reviews mentioned above, social media provides customers and potential customers with the chance to give and read reviews. Although some companies have private profiles to prevent law enforcement from monitoring their activities, no one can hide on social media unless they’re account is private, at which point, we recommend staying the f*ck away.
Buying weed online shouldn’t be a chore, but it also shouldn’t be regrettable. Don’t get scammed when buying cannabis online, be safe, and pay attention to the things we mentioned above.
