Welcome to Legal Cannabis NYC!

New York Cannabis Legalization took decades to come to fruition, but it is finally here!! You will be seeing Licensed Dispensaries replacing the lawless “Exotic Candy” shops and fake “Dispensaries” that have infested our city. At NYC BUD, one of the first licensed dispensaries in NYS, we strive to set the highest standards in quality, selection and consumer education. 

Here is some more details on what you should expect as a consumer at a Licensed Dispensary:

  • Customized product selection to fit your specific needs. When you are looking to purchase a cannabis product, it is usually to achieve a desired effect, such as “to relax”, “to feel euphoric”, or “to reduce pain”. Your shopping experience should include a matching of your desired effect with products that are best suited to achieve that effect. How is this matching done? Utilizing the analysis of product’s lab reports and based on the common effects of its active ingredients.  
  • Wide range of consumption methods. The active ingredients found in cannabis plants, such as Cannabinoids, Terpenes and Flavonoids are very versatile in how our bodies process them through our Endocannabinoid Systems. In other words you can vape them, smoke them, eat them in the form of an edible, apply topically, or absorb sublingually. Which consumption method or combination of methods is best for you? A trained budtender should give you some evidence-based guidance. 
  • You want to be an Educated Consumer. In a non-regulated market, a lot of false product description, made up claims and misinformation plagued consumer options. Unfortunately, most of the time you were told that you are getting some “Fire Sour Diesel” but in reality you were likely getting something completely different, with no lab report of the active ingredients and without knowing what toxins such as mold, pesticides and contaminants could have been present. The legal dispensary must provide you with simple to understand consumer education so that you are most comfortable with the products that you are getting. Now is the time to get past all that uncertainty; it is time to know exactly what you are consuming.   
  • Convenience of seamless same-day delivery to wherever you wish. The law allows you to order your products through an app to be delivered to meet you at a desired location. 

Of course there are a lot of other factors that go into having an outstanding cannabis shopping experience. Here at NYC BUD, we are strong believers in leading by example and our goal is to be role models for legal dispensaries to come. After all these years of prohibition, New Yorkers deserve to finally have a wide range of clean, high quality products and customized shopping experiences to achieve their desired effects.
