What Is Weedmaps?
Weedmaps is a user-friendly service that allows you to browse and order from cannabis dispensaries near you.
Similar to food delivery apps like UberEats, Weedmaps lets you sort through various locations, view menus, read customer reviews, and choose between pick-up or delivery.
Weedmaps offers delivery options and pick-up options, varying from dispensary to dispensary.
What Weedmaps options are available for you may depend on your state and local laws.
How Does Weedmaps Work?
Weedmaps lists all dispensaries in your area, assuming they’re registered with the company.
Also listed are doctor’s offices that offer medical cards.
The Weedmaps app lets you sort by dispensary, brand, location, and deals.
Most dispensaries will list their hours, phone numbers, and any specific information you will need to know about their location, such as whether or not they have an ATM.
Dispensary menus are incredibly detailed and often give you as much information on what you’re buying as possible.
The product information listed on Weedmaps is almost always identical to the information on the dispensary websites.
Customer reviews are one of the best aspects of Weedmaps.
Users can leave reviews at any dispensary or business they’ve visited, but that’s not all.
Weedmaps users can also leave reviews of specific products. Many reviews cite different emotions, feelings, and types of highs from different strains.
Utilizing and paying attention to customer reviews will certainly help you make the most of your Weedmaps experience.
Where Is Weedmaps Available?
Weedmaps is available in the United States, Canada, and Spain, where cannabis sale is legal.
However, WM Exchange, Weedmaps’s wholesale exchange platform, is currently only available in California and Oklahoma.

Whether or not delivery-specific options are available in your city depends on how close the nearest dispensaries are to you and what options they provide.

How Much Does Weedmaps Cost?
Unlike other delivery services like Shipt and Instacart, there is no membership fee required for Weedmaps.
If you are ordering Weedmaps delivery rather than pick-up, delivery fees may be applicable, and you’ll want to tip your driver.
Other than that, Weedmaps really won’t cost much.
Almost all the money you spend on Weedmaps will go to the dispensaries.
Most of the money Weedmaps makes is from the dispensaries themselves.
For dispensaries interested in promoting themselves on Weedmaps, listings start at $295 per month and can go for well over $1,000.
Weedmaps delivery rates vary depending on what dispensary you order from.
Unlike most other delivery services, Weedmaps delivery drivers don’t work for Weedmaps but work for the dispensaries.
Therefore, the delivery options and rates near you will depend on the specific dispensaries and local laws.
Some dispensaries don’t charge at all for delivery, assuming you hit a minimum order amount, usually around $50.
Dispensaries that charge delivery fees usually only charge $5 to $30.
Do You Tip Weedmaps Drivers?
Yes, you should tip Weedmaps delivery drivers, generally speaking.
The only cases where you shouldn’t tip your drivers will be if the specific dispensary has a policy against tipping or if state/local laws restrict the tipping of anyone delivering cannabis products.
Tipping is always recommended for delivery drivers.
Most dispensaries guarantee that drivers receive 100% of the tip, so you don’t have to worry about your money going somewhere it shouldn’t.
Tipping is a great way to thank your drivers for their fantastic service.
How to Sign Up for Weedmaps
The Weedmaps sign-up process is quite simple and intended to throw you right into the dispensaries list.
Then, assuming you fit the requirements, your next Weedmaps orders will be at your fingertips with ease.
Weedmaps requires all users to be at least 18 years old to view the site/app and at least 21 to place orders, which is per cannabis consumption laws, which mandate all users must be at least 21.
You MUST show a valid ID upon delivery or pick-up to verify your age.
Other requirements for Weedmaps orders may depend on the dispensaries.
For example, if you are ordering from a medical dispensary instead of a recreational facility, a medical card will be required.

How to Be a Weedmaps Delivery Driver
At this time, there is no way to be a delivery driver directly for Weedmaps.
Unlike other delivery services like UberEats and Instacart, Weedmaps delivery drivers don’t work for Weedmaps.
Many dispensaries offer their own delivery services that Weedmaps essentially connects you with.
Cannabis dispensaries regularly have open positions for new drivers.
You may not be able to do freelance delivery from every dispensary in town, but applying to dispensaries listed on Weedmaps is the only way to deliver Weedmaps orders, assuming you meet the requirements.
Dispensaries require that all employees be over the age of 21.
In addition, delivery drivers must have a valid driver’s license from the state the dispensary is in and have a clean driving record.
Other specific regulations and requirements often vary based on state and local laws.
Most states require that cannabis delivery vehicles meet specific security protocols, such as an enclosed trunk and an operational alarm.
Some dispensaries have responded to this by issuing their own delivery vehicles.
Other dispensaries require that delivery drivers provide their own cars that meet the state’s standards for cannabis delivery and are thoroughly insured.
Since the sale of cannabis is taken incredibly seriously from a legal standpoint, most cannabis dispensaries are highly exclusive with their candidates.
Therefore, they require multiple years of retail and driving experience.
Most dispensary delivery driver positions go beyond driving and delivering.
Drivers often have to help with the other retail aspects of the job, such as fulfilling orders, documentation, and customer service.
