Dos and Don'ts: Weed Delivery
If you’re reading this, you most likely live in a state where weed delivery is legal - or at least on the cusp of being legalized. If you don’t live in one of these states, we love your curiosity and we’re stoked to have you here.
Long ago, the idea of ordering your favorite flower and having it delivered to your door was merely a pipe dream for stoners everywhere. Now it’s a reality throughout much of the U.S. and some parts of the world, providing you the convenience to buy your favorite flower, edibles, and vapes without ever having to leave the couch (and the box of pizza on your coffee table).
While ordering cannabis in your sweats has many perks, there’s a few things you should be conscious of before you hit the glowing “buy now” button. We hope these Dos and Don’ts help you have a better experience with weed delivery so you and your pals can share the wonder of cannabis products without ever having a bad trip.
DO SOME DELIVERY RESEARCH
Before you go calling random shops to ask if they deliver weed, we recommend you do a quick search for the best (and safest) delivery in your area. As cannabis continues to become more available, so do the questionable delivery sites that want to take your money and potentially deliver a harmful product - or not deliver anything at all. Trustworthy and compliant sites like Eaze and Mountain Remedy provide you total transparency about the products you are buying with secure purchasing options, friendly customer service, and even the estimated time your delivery will hit your doorstep. Shop around, ask questions, check the customer reviews, and you’ll find a safe delivery service that fits your needs.
DON'T USE CRAIGSLIST
We love Craigslist as much as anyone, but don’t buy your weed from there. While it’s a great marketplace to find apartments and a new car, it’s the last place you want to be for cannabis delivery from a creepy guy named Steve who wants you to text him your credit card info. Trust us, it’s happened more than once and you don’t want to be featured on the next Lifetime Original.
DO FIND A SERVICE THAT HAS YOUR PRODUCT
Even though the cannabis delivery world grows more and more each day, the availability and inventory of your favorite products can fluctuate rapidly. Once you’ve found a secure site to order from, take some time to explore their inventory. Not only will you see what’s available in the strains and styles you love, but you may also make a new discovery that opens a new world of rollable possibility - like our all-in-one Ready to Roll packs.
DO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE CASH
Face it, cash is king. While many delivery services now take credit and debit cards, it’s often best to just pay for your weed in cash, as this can often save you additional fees that might may sneakily appear on your order. On top of that, paying with cash helps you avoid the possibility of insecure payment options and credit card fraud.
DON’T BE STINGY
There’s nothing wrong with trying to save a buck, but don’t do it if it requires you to purchase your cannabis products from a questionable weed delivery site. Here at Old Pal, we believe high-quality cannabis should be accessible for everyone, but not if it comes with the possibility of an untested and potentially hazardous product. Trust us, spending a couple extra dollars on safe, certified sites will pay exponential dividends in the long run.
DO LEAVE A TIP
Always remember that someone has to take the time and effort to get your weed to your doorstep. So make sure to have some extra cash on hand to show the delivery person your appreciation - especially if you live on a sixth floor walk up (you know who you are).
DON’T BE IMPATIENT
Unfortunately, weed delivery can sometimes take a bit longer than expected. And if you live in LA, you know traffic can make delivery a LOT slower than anticipated. Stay calm, don’t freak out, and be nice to the delivery person when they get to your door.
DO ASK QUESTIONS
Websites like Eaze offer helpful live chat services so you can ask all your most burning questions - from product effects to delivery certification and safety. You can also contact most weed delivery sites via email and they should respond in a timely manner. If they don’t get back to you, don’t order from them.
DON’T ORDER WEED AT WORK
Even if you work for a rad new company with great happy hours and a laid-back vibe, you probably shouldn’t have your weed delivered to your job. Think of it this way: just because weed is legal in your state doesn’t mean it’s kosher with your HR department. Better to be safe than sorry and jobless.
DO HAVE FUN
The best part about weed delivery is that you can have a party with friends and the cannabis comes to you. Share it with your buds, have a good time, and don’t be afraid to try some new things. Weed delivery has helped open a world of puffable possibility for us herbivores, and there’s never been a better time to pass the good vibes with your favorite Old Pal flower and oil.
