Michigan Dispensary FAQs – First Time Visiting a Michigan Dispensary

Posted on October 4th, 2023 to Education by

Are you planning to shop for cannabis as a medical cannabis patient or adult customer for the first time? Your first time visiting a Michigan dispensary is nothing to be intimidated about. With a little information about Michigan cannabis laws and some insight, you will be fully prepared to know what to expect and get through your first experience wholly comfortable and confident.


Can you just walk right into a dispensary and shop?

To make sure only authorized adults get inside the dispensary, you do have to show the proper identification at the door before being granted access to the sales floor. Therefore, be sure to have your government-issued photo ID or driver’s license ready to show the employee when you arrive.

What should you bring to the dispensary with you?

Bring your valid government-issued photo ID, cash or a debit card to pay for your purchase, and your medical marijuana card, if you are shopping from the medical menu.

What is an MI medical cannabis card? How do I get one?

An MI medical cannabis card is a type of identification provided by the Michigan Medical Marijuana Program (MMMP) that proves you are a medical cannabis patient in the state of Michigan. While cannabis in MI is recreationally legal for adults 21 years of age and older, anyone under this age must have a medical marijuana card and a qualifying medical condition. Additionally, some people simply prefer to shop solely for medical cannabis products. Take a look at our guide on how to get a medical marijuana card in MI for more information.

What is the inside of a cannabis dispensary like?

The inside of a Michigan cannabis dispensary is a bit different from a typical retail store. Cannabis products are held in protective cases instead of openly out on display for handling and perusal. Most products are held in glass cases that allow you to look at the different products. A dispensary budtender will open the cases and allow for closer looks at different products as you shop.

Can you visit only one cannabis dispensary a day?

You are free to visit all the best cannabis dispensaries in Michigan within a day if you like, which would be quite the feat. However, daily purchase limits apply no matter how many dispensaries you visit. For example, if you purchase half the legally allowed amount of cannabis flower as an adult customer at one dispensary (1.25 ounces), you will only be able to purchase another 1.25 ounces at other dispensaries.

How do you order cannabis online?

Ordering cannabis online is a simple process, especially at the best dispensaries in MI. You simply navigate to the dispensary’s online menu, select your product preferences, and move through the checkout process. You will be asked to provide certain details when you check out, such as your name, birthday, email address, and phone number.

At Neighborhood Provisions, we offer both curbside pick-up and delivery when you order online. Therefore, you will simply choose your order type and select a preferred time. You will also be given the option to pay for your order with Aeropay when you submit your order. You will receive a confirmation email when your order is either ready or on the way if you choose delivery.

Do Michigan dispensaries track you?

Michigan’s dispensaries keep track of your purchases as a customer by using your ID or medical marijuana card. This information is only tracked to ensure purchase limits are followed according to Michigan cannabis laws.

How much cannabis can you buy?

Medical cannabis patients and adult customers have different purchase limits. As an adult cannabis customer, you are allowed to purchase typo to 2.5 ounces of cannabis flower within a day or up to 15 grams of cannabis concentrates. Medical cannabis patients can also purchase 2.5 ounces per day, but they can only purchase up to 10 ounces per month.

Can you shop at an MI dispensary if you live out of state?

You are allowed to shop for cannabis in Michigan as long as you are an adult who is 21 years of age or older. You can simply show your valid government-issued photo ID issued by your home state to make a purchase. If you are a medical patient from another state, you can shop for medical cannabis as long as your home state allows reciprocity.

How can you pay for cannabis?

You can use either cash or your debit card to pay for your purchase. Unfortunately, credit cards are not accepted for cannabis purchases at this time.
