Recreational marijuana is now officially legal in California. And that means you’re probably on the hunt for some of the best San Francisco marijuana prices and dispensaries. You can currently pick up a gram for an average of about $15. But you’ll find several shops in the area offering a gram for less.
In fact, you can pick up a gram for as little as $9.
There are also some great deals on larger quantities. And remember, savvy shoppers can almost always save by shopping around.
For instance, the average for an ounce of marijuana in Las Vegas is $272. Yet some shops are offering an ounce for at least $75 less than that average.
Cannabis prices overall have been dropping in San Francisco. When California legalized recreational, taxes and a lack of supply helped push prices upward. In April, we saw prices in the area hit $315 per ounce.
That’s great news for you as a consumer.
Of course, it’s still important to find a quality dispensary that you trust and that also offers great prices and deals.

Choosing your dispensary
Growers will be the first to tell you that not all cannabis products are created equally. A particular strain or product at one dispensary might be more enjoyable than the same strain at another dispensary.
What should you look for? Make sure to shop at a dispensary that offers lab-tested products and buys from reputable growers. The last thing you want is to pick up a product that has been grown using pesticides or that hasn’t been tested for mites. If you want more info, check out our guide on how to buy cannabis.
Fortunately, there’s a great way to try out different products without breaking the bank. Many dispensaries offer daily, weekly and monthly deals on certain quantities and strains.
And don’t forget that being a member at your favorite dispensary can save you some major cash on your favorite strains over the long-haul — somewhere around 10%.
Keep in mind that 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.
