Weed Shopping: How Much Cannabis Can You Buy in One Day?

May 31, 2019

The most common question people ask about weed dispensaries is probably: “What’s a good recreational marijuana store near me open now?” That’s an understandable thing to wonder about, but there’s another, often more important question: “How much weed can I actually buy?”

Although the Adult Use of Marijuana Act, also known as Proposition 64, made the sale and use of recreational cannabis legal in California, there are still many regulations and laws that govern how, to whom, and what types of weed can be sold.

Today, we’ll discuss how to approach some of these regulations in order to get the most out of your marijuana shopping and using experience. Keep reading to learn more.

How much cannabis can I legally have?

Proposition 64 has established that up to 8 grams of marijuana concentrates is the legal limit for recreational weed possession for adults who are 21 years old or older. In addition to this, legal adults are permitted to have up to 28.5 grams of marijuana flower, and up to six living marijuana plants within their private residence.

Same goes for purchases. You are allowed to buy up to 28.5 grams of marijuana flower in one go, and up to 8 grams of concentrate. Of course, it goes without saying that you need an ID to go inside a dispensary and to make the said purchase.

This ID doesn’t have to be issued by the state of California, but it must include a photograph. So, any valid state ID, driver’s license, or passport (if you’re a foreign citizen visiting the US) will do as long as it can prove your identity and that you’re 21 or more years old.

Can I carry cannabis around with me?

You can carry the legally allowed amount of cannabis on your person, meaning up to 8 grams of weed concentrate and 28.5 grams of flower. However, the marijuana products must be packed in a neutral package that doesn’t reveal what’s inside to the public.

This also means that you can’t consume marijuana products in public just like you can’t consume tobacco or alcohol. Everyone dreams of spending a warm day smoking weed on a California beach such as the Pacific Beach, but unfortunately this will have to remain a dream for now.

Where can I buy cannabis?

If you’re an adult (21+ years old), or an 18-20 years old individual who has a doctor’s prescription for medical marijuana, you can legally buy medicinal and recreational weed products at any cannabis dispensary in California.

Things you should look for when choosing a weed store include:

  • It must employ a team of polite, experienced, and knowledgeable budtenders who can answer any questions that you may have and help guide you through the buying process.
  • It should have a large catalog of available cannabis products that are designed to fit every need, taste, and situation.
  • It should offer top-notch marijuana delivery services that can bring weed to you quickly, reliably, and at a competitive price.
  • They should have a modern website equipped with a comprehensive online catalog, as well as a blog full of useful and interesting information about weed in California.
