FAQs About New York Cannabis Dispensaries

What do I need to shop at a NY dispensary?

The only thing required to purchase cannabis at a NY dispensary is your valid, government-issued ID. This ID must reflect that you are at least 21 years of age or older.

How much cannabis can you buy in NY?

If you are an adult who is 21 and up, you are allowed to purchase up to 24 grams of concentrated cannabis in the form of vapes, edibles, tinctures, and oils and up to three ounces of flower per day. These same purchase limits apply to NY delivery orders. It is also important to note, dispensaries may also have purchase limits in place for high-demand products during periods of low inventory.

Can you visit more than one cannabis dispensary a day?

You are free to visit as many dispensaries in NY as you like in a day. However, no matter how many dispensaries you visit, the same purchase limits will apply. So if you buy your daily limit of flower at one dispensary, you will not be able to purchase flower at another dispensary.

Can you just walk into a NY dispensary?

New York requires dispensaries to have a secure setup so no one unauthorized or underage can gain access to cannabis products. Therefore, you will need to show your ID before you are allowed to enter the store, and then you will show your ID again when you check out.

What will it be like inside the dispensary?

All dispensaries have a unique setup when it comes to browsing cannabis flower and products. However, all cannabis products are kept in secure cases or containers. You are free to browse and look at products while being assisted by a budtender, so you will likely have to wait for your turn to shop. You can also ask questions about different products during the interaction. Once you have made your selections, you will simply pay for your products and head out.

How do you pay for cannabis at the dispensary?

Most NY cannabis dispensaries, including Little Beach Harvest, will have a few convenient options available to pay for your cannabis purchase. While cash may be preferred by some stores, most dispensaries are now set up to accept payments through Dutchie Pay or via a debit card.

Can you shop for NY cannabis if you live out of state?

Yes. You can shop in a recreational cannabis dispensary as long as you are an adult with a valid government-issued ID issued from your home state, such as your driver’s license, that proves you are 21 or older.

How does online ordering and pickup work?

Online ordering allows you to place an order via the online menu and conveniently pick up your ready cannabis order when you arrive at the dispensary. For example, you can navigate to the Little Beach Harvest menu, select the items to add to your shopping cart, and then proceed through the checkout process. You can select to pay with either Dutchie Pay or cash or debit card when you arrive. When you are notified that your order is ready, simply make your way to the dispensary for pickup.

Will New York dispensaries track you?

NY dispensaries only track your purchases through the point-of-sale system as required by New York cannabis laws. These purchases are tracked to make sure customers are adhering to the mandated purchase limits as they travel from one dispensary to the next in a single day.

What is a NY medical marijuana card?

A NY medical marijuana card is a verification that you are qualified under NY state law to purchase cannabis for medicinal purposes. This card can only be used to shop for cannabis at a medical dispensary. However, if you are 21 years of age or older and a medical cannabis cardholder, you will have the freedom to shop at both recreational and medical dispensaries for cannabis.
