If you live in a state where adult use is legal, you can purchase weed from licensed dispensaries and online.
Many people still prefer the black market over the legal one for one simple reason — money. Illegal weed is cheaper because the black market circumvents all the costs of running a legitimate marijuana operation, including quality and safety control and third-party testing. As reported by We Be High, these standards are there to protect your health and are well worth paying extra for.
1. States That Have Legalized Recreational Use
Before we get into the differences between these two cannabinoids, let’s explore the chemical idiosyncrasies that make delta 8 THC federally legal, at least for now.
Delta 8 THC is present in very low levels in cannabis, so low that extracting it becomes highly ineffective, and a particular process is required. Delta 8 THC extracted from hemp is federally legal under the 2018 Farm Bill.
Moreover, in the legal market, medical dispensaries, in particular, offer a much wider range of strains bred and groomed to produce specific effects. With the black market, not only are your options minimal, but you can’t even be sure of what you’re getting.

Weedmaps sends your order to the retailer while you sit back and smile until it’s time to get your goods from the store or delivered to your door!
2 . Shop local retailers
Look for products that have the blue icon, which only appears when products are sold by brand authorized retailers. Reading community reviews, strain information, and typically-reported effects can also help when selecting the right strain or product to fit the occasion.
Each retailer is responsible for delivery, and delivery regulations differ by jurisdiction. In many jurisdictions, it is illegal to deliver cannabis products to schools and federal and state lands (parks, prisons, government buildings, etc.). In order to find out about delivery options, reach out to the retailer you would like to purchase from.
After you’ve selected your orders-enabled retailer on Weedmaps.com or in the Weedmaps Android Application, you may browse the menu, select items and specify quantities, and put your desired products in your cart by clicking “Add to Cart.” Once you’re finished adding your items, select “Proceed to Checkout.”
