The nationwide average cost for a gram of weed is around $13.30. But the price you’ll pay depends on more than just the quantity. What you’ll pay for a gram depends on where you live, what strain you’re purchasing, the dispensary and even the season.

Remember, growers aren’t all the same. While many are now growing hydroponically, there are still some using the traditional outdoor method. And a particular strain at one dispensary might be more enjoyable than the same strain at another dispensary.
Fortunately, there’s a great way to try out different dispensaries without breaking the bank. Many dispensaries offer daily, weekly and monthly deals on certain quantities and strains.
Becoming a member at your favorite dispensary can also save you some major cash — somewhere around 10% or more.
But dispensaries quickly run out of the most popular strains. Give your local dispensary a call, or email, to see if they have a particular strain in stock before you make the trip.
The case for vaporizers
You can now consume your favorite strains (legally) in a number of different ways.
But we believe vaporizers are one of the best options. Not only are they convenient, they offer a layer of safety that other consumptions methods simply do not. That’s especially so if you’re used to smoking from a pipe, bowl or joint.
Vaporizers were once fairly expensive, and only came in bigger plug-in models. But as the cannabis industry continues to grow, along with technology, vaporizers are getting cheaper and more efficient. You can find vapes as cheap as $50 or as pricey as $400 — it all depends on what you want.
