DC Weed Delivery FAQ
The Gentleman has compiled your most Frequently Asked Questions about DC Weed Delivery into a helpful, supplementary guide. Here, feast your eyeholes on these babies!
Do I need to be a DC resident to use these weed delivery services? Nope! Any adult 21+ can use DC’s I71 gifting services.
Do I need a medical marijuana card to use these weed delivery services? No medical card is required to use any of DC’s I71 gifting services. The city does have a medical marijuana program with six licensed dispensaries. You need a medical card to visit those, but they accept most out of state cards.
Can I get weed delivered to my hotel in DC? My apartment? A nearby cafe? Yes, yes, and yes. The only place they aren’t allowed to deliver are federal grounds & buildings, like the National Mall. Federal land means federal law applies and cannabis is not yet federally legal. Many DC weed delivery services do not operate east of the Anacostia River, either, choosing to concentrate on the heavily trafficked downtown & tourist areas instead- like Dupont Circle, Georgetown, Foggy Bottom, Adams Morgan, H St, and so on.
How long is my delivery going to take? Usually anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. DC’s kind of a small city so it doesn’t really matter where you are, everybody’s gotta fight the same traffic to get to you. And have you seen these potholes? More like pot, uhhh…holes. Crap, I’m stoned.
Pick-ups vs Delivery? Most services that do pick-ups require appointments, so it’s not necessarily faster than delivery, but you might get lucky! Of course, setting an appointment in advance is a great way to minimize your time getting weed and maximizing your time smoking weed, so it does pay to be organized…
The gift weed delivery service wants me to send them a photo of my ID first? Lots of brands do this for age verification and their own security. It’s a fairly standard request. Trust, as they say, is a two-way sex dungeon. Wait, what?
Who’s got the best/strongest weed in DC? The gifts available from most weed delivery services in DC change frequently, sometimes even daily, which is why I feature one almost every day on my Menus page from one of the brands I have personally vetted for consistent quality and professional service over the last…geez, going on four years now. Before that, I spent eight years making my living by approving and managing vendors for outside work, so you could say I have some previous experience at this sort of thing. I also care a lot- like, neurotically so- about what weed earns the Gentleman’s approval. FYI, THC percentage for flowers doesn’t matter that much past a certain threshold in my opinion.
But I need that medical-grade weed! That’s not really a thing outside of California fifteen years ago, Mr. Duchovny. There’s no difference in quality or potency between recreational/adult-use and medical cannabis. Sorry to burst your bubble.
That premium indoor! More sparkly trichomes equate to higher potency than outdoor or greenhouse grade marijuana, but Indoor doesn’t necessarily translate to “quality.”
That AAA weed! Do I have to call security?
I’m looking for a specific ratio of CBD:THC. Then you need a medical card. CBD flowers from DC gift marijuana delivery services or pop-ups are pretty rare. If you’re not a resident and a card isn’t an option, then your best bet is to put your science hat on and mix up the usual THC with readily available CBD-only products to figure out a combo that works for you.
Is DC weed lab-tested? Sometimes. Steep Hill has a local office to test for cannabinoids & I understand they’ve recently added the capability to test for bacteria & microbials- a very exciting development! Some medical growers, like Abatin Wellness, have their own testing equipment for that, too.
Look, lab testing is all well and good and science is important (assuming accurate data), so I’m all for it. But I can point to some lab-tested weed on Maryland medical marijuana shelves for months- months!– after it was reported that the grower had used unlicensed pesticides, or I could just paraphrase Tommy Boy and explain that I can write lab-tested on a box but that won’t make it good weed.
What about the pop-up events? They’ve been getting raided by DC’s Metropolitan Police Department with regular frequency since late ’17. That makes me nervous about attending or advising you on where to go. I try to avoid dramatic scenes with armed gunmen as a general life rule.
What about brick & mortar locations? There are several brands operating out of storefronts these days, like Street Lawyer Services, Gifted Curators, and Lifted.
What’s the difference between I71 weed gifting storefronts and dispensaries? Dispensaries possess city licenses to operate, must use a seed-to-sale tracking system, and have all their products lab-tested. Storefronts (along with Delivery and Pick-Up services) only need to comply with Initiative 71 gifting rules.
Does anyone still take credit cards? Few and far between these days. Scammers figured out they could argue the charge of their I71 purchases and get their money back. Once the payment processor got a chargeback request, though, they started going thru the brand’s account, saw what was going on, and kicked ’em off after freezing their funds. Some lost thousands of dollars this way and that’s why we can’t get airline miles for smoking weed anymore. Sigh. Now it’s mostly cash, but some take cryptocurrency and some take app payments.
Do your gifts have what it takes to be featured on GentlemanToker.com? I’m the pickiest little pillow princess! I don’t review marijuana that produces an acrid smoke that irritates the mouth or throat or that smells like Ammonia, Hay, Must, Grass, Sweat, Chemicals, or has No Smell at all. If you think you can pass that bar, contact me here and we’ll schedule an evaluation of your flowers.
Any other questions? Go ahead and shoot, hoss! The Gentleman’s discretion is assured.DC Weed Delivery FAQ The Gentleman has compiled your most Frequently Asked Questions about DC Weed Delivery into a helpful, supplementary guide. Here, feast your eyeholes on these babies! Do ]]>
