How to Order Weed Online: 3 Steps to Easy Pickup or Delivery

Ordering weed online

In 2014, Oregon became the third state to legalize marijuana for recreational use. Since then, that number has grown to 25. As the green wave continues to spread, purveyors and partakers are looking for ways to procure their pot ever more efficiently. 

Once again, Oregon is on the forefront. 

Shortly after legalization hit the Beaver state, Bend-based brothers Ross and Zach Lipson launched Dutchie, an online ordering platform for cannabis. 

Bahama Buds has been connected with the platform since 2021, and we’ve found that our customers appreciate the ability to order cannabis online.

In this blog, we’ll explore the art of online cannabis ordering: the process, benefits and a few things to watch out for.  

How to Order Cannabis Online

1. Delivery Vs. Pickup. By now, most of us are used to tapping in a DoorDash or UberEats order and getting almost anything delivered to our doorstep. While the process of ordering weed online is similar, given the regulated nature of cannabis products, there are a few additional considerations. 

According to state regulations, “Licensed dispensaries can deliver marijuana products to weed users in Oregon. However, delivery can only be made to residential addresses.” 

Additionally, licensed dispensaries cannot hire third-party companies to handle weed delivery services. Any delivery person must be registered as an employee of the dispensary or retailer. 

Given delivery restrictions, the easiest way to order weed online is to make the transaction and pick up your order at a local dispensary. 

2. Placing Your Order. There are two ways to access online ordering from Bahama Buds. The first is directly through our web store. Select your favorite recreational or medical products for pick up at either location

The second way to shop our stock is through Dutchie’s site. On the homepage, enter your address and select the pickup option. From there, you’ll be directed to a list of dispensaries nearby — Bahama Buds will appear in this list. 

Select your favorite local retailer and fill your cart with your favorite product. There’s no minimum for pick up at Bahama Buds, but if you need delivery (available through the Dutchie site only), the minimum order amount is $50. 

You can pay with cash or debit card when you pick up. 

3. Pick Up Your Order. Arrive at the dispensary during business hours when your order is ready. If you’re picking up in the shop, come on in and let us know you have a Dutchie order waiting. We’ll take care of payment via cash or debit card and send you on your way. 

Who Should Order Weed Online? 

The obvious answer is, anyone who is legally allowed to purchase weed in Oregon. That means medical marijuana patients and caregivers and adults over the age of 21. 

Ordering online is convenient and can simplify the selection process for those who already know what they like or want. Those familiar with the different strains of cannabis, such as indicas, sativas, hybrids and the various forms like flower, edibles and concentrates, benefit from the quick and easy ordering process. 

On the flip side, if you’re new to the world of weed, it may be beneficial to stop in the shop and talk to a budtender about what you’re looking for. There are many different strains, brands and categories of cannabis products, and it can be overwhelming to select from a list on the internet. 

Having an experienced guide to help you understand the effects and benefits of different products can give you a solid understanding of what you want. Once you’ve got a few favorites, hop online for the re-order. 

Benefits of Ordering Cannabis

There are plenty of benefits to online ordering. Here are just a few reasons to give it a try: 

Convenience. Platforms like Dutchie make ordering weed online simple. With just a few clicks, you can browse the extensive menu of cannabis products available at Bahama Buds. You save time by shopping from home rather than browsing in the shop and can shop at any time of the day or night. Delivery, curbside or in-store pickup options add to the convenience. 

Discretion. Recreational weed has been fully legal in Oregon for a decade, and despite the growing acceptance of cannabis use, discretion remains a priority for many weed consumers. Ordering online using delivery or car-side pickup offers a discreet way to explore and purchase cannabis products without needing to go into the shop. 

Product Descriptions. Browsing products online also comes with information about each item. While your friendly budtender can answer any questions you may have about a product in the shop, some customers prefer to read descriptions and research online before making a decision. 

Quick Pickup. If you’re in a hurry, having your product ready and waiting can streamline the purchase process. 

Things to Keep In Mind When Ordering Weed Online

Cannabis is a highly regulated substance, so it’s important to know and follow all guidelines and rules regarding its sale, transport and use. Here are a few things to remember while you shop for weed online. 

  • Only order from reputable sites. According to Oregon law, unlawful delivery of marijuana is a misdemeanor. Make sure you only order and receive cannabis products from reputable sites that follow all regulations around sale and delivery. Not only does this ensure you’re following distribution laws, but it also ensures the quality of the product you receive. 
  • Your delivery location matters. Oregon dispensaries can only deliver to residential addresses in Oregon. Hotels and businesses do not qualify for legal weed delivery. 
  • You need to provide specific information. ​​For an online weed order to be valid, you must include the customer’s name, birth date and home address to which they want their products delivered. You also need to specify the necessary strain and amount, the date of requested delivery, and a statement that the cannabis is for personal use, not for resale. 
  • You need to present your I.D. at pickup. You cannot have someone else pick up or accept your weed order. You’ll be asked to present a valid ID at the point of pickup or delivery. 

When in doubt, order directly from our online store or stick with weed-ordering platforms like Dutchie to ensure you get your cannabis products safely, efficiently and legally.
