There are currently only five medical marijuana dispensaries open in Virginia, so residents have naturally been a bit hesitant to bother with getting a marijuana card. Sure, there’s at least one dispensary covering all four(ish) corners of the state, but what if you live in Lynchburg? In that case, you still have more than an hour to drive in order to get to RISE in Salem.
It may be easier to just stick to your illicit market connection even if their product quality and availability leaves something to be desired. At least your guy delivers. More than you can say for these dispensaries, right?
Now, Virginia dispensaries offer medical marijuana delivery, too!
If you live too far to bother driving to the nearest Virginia marijuana dispensary every time you run out of cannabis, you might feel discouraged about your lack of access. However, getting medical marijuana in Virginia is easier than you think!
Three of the five dispensaries in the state offer home delivery of medical marijuana products, and their coverage goes way farther than your local Marco’s Pizza. This means that everyone in Virginia, from Bristol, to Chesapeake, to Harrisonburg and everywhere in between can order a wide selection of medical marijuana products online, including edibles, vape products, topicals, and flower, and have cannabis delivered right to their doorstep with the click of a button.
In addition to expansive medical marijuana delivery zones—and widely-distributed medical marijuana pick-up locations for those who live outside of the delivery zone—at least some new medical marijuana dispensaries should be opening in the near future. And each of the five companies that are currently open have been granted licenses to open a total of six locations in VA.
Let’s take a look at which dispensaries deliver marijuana to your region, and what you can get delivered to your home. But first, let’s clear up one major misconception about adult-use legalization.
Adult-Use Marijuana Will Not Be Legal to Sell Until 2024
Unfortunately, the law that went into effect on July 1, 2021 does nothing to increase actual access to recreational marijuana products until 2024.
Medical marijuana dispensaries will be the only new dispensaries between now and 2024. You will still need a Virginia marijuana card in order to make purchases.
Which Virginia Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Deliver?
Three of the five dispensaries currently deliver, and they cover the entire state of Virginia between them.
Abingdon - Dharma Pharmaceuticals
Dharma Pharmaceuticals, located in Abingdon, offers a pretty decent selection of products including vape cartridges, edibles, topicals, and even suppositories.
Vapes are labeled as Calm, Energy, and Focus, with no specifics on strain. THC concentration tops out at about 64% for their Calm 21 vape formula. Gummies generally have somewhere close to 9mg of THC, and 5 - 6mg of CBD. Dharma’s oils are gentle, at just over 3mg of THC and 2mg of CBD per dose.
To be quite honest, Dharma’s inventory is not particularly impressive. However, their delivery area is HUGE, serving just about everyone east of Harrisonburg.
Manassas - Beyond/Hello
Beyond/Hello serves Manassas, Gainesville, Bristow, Haymarket, Centreville. The delivery area does not cover a wide geographical area, but it does offer delivery to the local region.
This dispensary has a more diverse selection of products than Dharma, because it offers items manufactured by the other producers in Virginia. At Beyond/Hello, you can buy vape products from Dharma, as well as GLeaf’s vape cartridges in specific strains like Death Star, Ghost OG, and 3 Chems.
Beyond/Hello in Manassas also carries GLeaf’s live rosin extracts, and Dharma’s edibles, topicals, oils, and suppositories.
Richmond - GLeaf
GLeaf in Richmond has the largest delivery area out of all the dispensaries in Virginia, and it also makes/carries the most diverse selection of products.
GLeaf delivers to everyone east of SR 81. The only stipulation is that Rochester only has delivery available on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, and Danvill only has delivery on Sunday and Wednesday.
For those west of SR 81, you can still get products from GLeaf, but you’re going to have to drive a little. You can order from GLeaf and pick up your products at the designated time at the Fairfield Inn in Staunton (114 Crossing Way), or the Roanoke CVS at 2712 Peters Creek Rd.
It may be worth working it into your schedule, though, because GLeaf has all the variety. This dispensary offers fun extracts like Ghost OG pull n snap coming in at 77 percent THC, and Lucky Cheese shmatter at 71 percent THC.
There are 33 different vape strains, fun edibles, and fast-acting topical salves as well.
You Can Only Get Marijuana Delivered to Your Door if You Have a Virginia Marijuana Card!
No matter where you live in Virginia, you have access to medical marijuana delivery as long as you have a Virginia marijuana card. Even though adult-use marijuana is legal to possess, there won’t be anywhere to legally purchase marijuana until 2024.
And convenient, safe access to legal cannabis is not the only benefit to having a marijuana card in the Commonwealth. There are also protections for employees who test positive for THC at their workplace when they have a card, and medical marijuana is tax free because it is classified as a medicine.
