Keep in mind that shopping around for the best deal is crucial. These are simply averages in each city. Comparison shopping can save you anywhere from $30 per year to well over $3,000 in some cases.

Remember, not all cannabis plants are created equally. While many growers now choose to go the hydro root, 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.
