Washington DC is home to a lot of head shops, all claiming to be #1. But what does it really mean to be one of the best head shops in DC? Asides from providing the D.C. cannabis community with weed accessories, head shops in DC must meet a load of other requirements set by the government.
This guide talks about how head shops in Washington DC operate, the requirements they must meet, and where to find the best head shop in D.C.
Head Shops Vs. Dispensaries
A head shop is a store that offers marijuana products and accessories. These might include flowers, edibles, bongs, blunt wraps, and a ton of other dope goodies. On the other hand, DC dispensaries are kind of like establishments that only sell medical marijuana. Yes, that's a bummer. However, there is still a way to get your hands on recreational weed in DC. (So stick around)
Medical cannabis usually comprises CBD-only products. And this is why head shops were created. To help bypass some of the weird laws set by the D.C. government concerning the use of weed.
What are Initiative 71 Shops?
First of all, what is initiative 71? Initiative 71 was a Washington, D.C. voter-approved ballot initiative that legalized the recreational use of cannabis. Now that we've gotten that out of the way, what are initiative 71 compliant shops? Simply put, these are shops that follow all rules set by the law and the good people of Washington DC.
One of the laws under Initiative 71 states that recreational weed can only be gifted in D.C., not sold. So one good way to spot illegal head shops is by finding out if they sell weed for money. If they do, don't patronize them.
How to Spot a Good Head Shop
There are a lot of head shops in D.C. that claim to meet the requirements set by the law. However, most of these head shops often fail to meet most of the conditions set by the government.
Below we list and discuss requirements every head shop in D.C. must meet before they can gift weed to residents in the district.
They Have Trusted Verified Google Reviews
Good head shops usually have at least a four-star rating on Google Reviews. Asides from this, look for reviews from other sources that talk about the product and customer service quality from any particular. This should give you a feel of what you should expect when you visit.
They Have Premium High-Quality Marijuana Gifts
What's their gift menu like? Do they gift stale or bad quality marijuana? Do they offer top-of-the-line cannabis products? If the answer to the latter is yes, then you've found yourself a good head shop – most likely The Green Room.
They Have Convenient In-Store Shopping or Online Menu
Getting weed from your favorite head shop shouldn't always have to be a stressful experience.
