You can check out dispensary menus and order medical marijuana online to be picked up at the location of your choice, and many Virginia dispensaries offer cannabis delivery right to your home!


If you're not sure what's right for you, most online dispensary menus in Virginia offer a category search that will help you find products tailored to your specific treatment goals.


Though the list of marijuana forms available at Virginia dispensaries is always expanding, here are the kinds of products you're most likely to come across:

Medical Marijuana Flower and Pre-Rolls

You can now buy medical marijuana flower and pre-roll products at Virginia dispensaries! They offer a variety of strains, including indicas and sativas, with terpene profiles intended to target specific symptoms. Smokable flower is one of the more accessible and affordable options at VA MMJ dispensaries, but you can also use a dry herb vape device to get the benefits without smoking.


Edibles are a popular item for patients who are looking for a discreet way to get long-lasting relief. You can buy edibles at Virginia dispensaries, or you can try making DIY edibles made with medical marijuana flower, extracts, or tinctures if you are feeling particularly creative.

Keep in mind that edibles have a tendency to take you by surprise if you don't have much experience with them. Check out this guide to edibles in Virginia for some advice on how to get started!


Cannabis extracts generally have a very high concentration of THC, and they are a great option for treating more severe symptoms and conditions. They can be consumed using a dab rig, or by adding them to your favorite recipes.


Medical marijuana tinctures are a favorite for patients treating nausea or other stomach problems. They are generally mild and have a ratio of THC to CBD that makes them great for daytime use. When you take a tincture under your tongue (sublingually) it usually kicks in within 20 - 30 minutes, and can last for several hours.

Vape Pens / Vape Cartridges

Vape pens and vape cartridges are a popular choice because they are incredibly easy to use, provide fast-acting relief, and are a little more discreet than marijuana flower. You can find vape products at Virginia dispensaries in a variety of strains and flavors, and you're very likely to find something you love!

How Much Will Medical Marijuana Cost at Virginia Dispensaries?

Virginia dispensaries are free to set their own medical marijuana prices, which are usually determined by a variety of factors. This includes supply and demand, as well as the amount of processing that goes into each product. As more dispensaries open across Virginia and more products become available, we expect prices to come down.

How Much Will Medical Marijuana Can Patients Possess in Virginia?

Patients may receive up to a 90-day supply per visit at the dispensary. While the amount of you 90-day supply will vary based on what you and your pharmacist determine and the forms of medical marijuana you purchase, the general rule is that medical marijuana patients can legally possess up to four ounces of medical marijuana flower.


Adult-use laws allow Virginia adults 21 and older to possess up to one ounce of marijuana, so medical patients have a lot more flexibility on how much marijuana they are legally permitted to possess at any given time.

Where Are Dispensaries Located in Virginia? How Can I Find a Dispensary Near Me?

The Virginia Board of Pharmacy has established 5 zones that will each have five dispensaries, or "pharmaceutical processors" operating in so that patients across Virginia have access to medical cannabis. Check out our Virginia Dispensary Locations page to find a dispensary near you.


Most patients live in a cannabis home delivery zone, even if you don't yet have a dispensary in your region of the state. This means that no matter where you live, you can order from a Virginia dispensary online and get marijuana delivered to your home or a designated meetup location.
