Is It Safe to Buy Cannabis Online?

When it comes to buying cannabis online, misconceptions abound.

The short answer is yes. That is, if you do it the right way.

When it comes to buying cannabis online, misconceptions abound. The industry seems to be changing every day, and it can be hard to keep up. Right now, you’re wondering whether it’s safe to buy cannabis online — and you’re not the only one.

The truth is, buying cannabis online is no more or less safe than buying cannabis in person. You just have to know the right questions to ask, and the right things to look for when choosing an online dispensary. Here are the top seven factors to consider when shopping for cannabis online, to help make sure you end up with a safe product you’ll love.

1. Legality


The first thing to do when considering online cannabis delivery is to make sure that the products you’re purchasing are 100% legal. Regulations surrounding cannabis are constantly changing, and the state-by-state differences can make it all the more confusing. Find an online cannabis dispensary that clearly states their products are legal. The more detail they go into explaining this, the more information you can gather and fact-check — and the more you should be able to trust them. As an example, Mood’s homepage states that our cannabis is 100% legal, and our “ What is THCa” information page details all of the reasons why.

2. Quality


Once you’ve got any legal questions out of the way, it’s time to focus on quality. Seek out products that are grown without pesticides, and that don’t contain any artificially derived cannabinoids. You’ll want to choose an online dispensary that works with reputable growers, and that clearly states all of their products are third-party tested. For example, Mood works closely with some of the most exclusive growers in the country, and all of our products undergo third-party testing. Our products all come with a certificate of analysis , which is another quality marker to look out for.

3. Affordability


A lot of dispensaries are overpriced, and it can be tough to determine whether you’re getting a good deal. Find an online cannabis dispensary that values bringing products to everyday people, without sacrificing on quality. Dispensaries such as Mood offer perks from free shipping to seasonal sales to newsletter subscription discounts. Our products are produced on small farms, and they’re sold at affordable prices so that everyone can get the cannabis products they want and need.

4. Reputation


When it comes to determining whether you can trust a certain brand or product, there’s nothing more helpful than customer testimonials. Read through a dispensary’s website reviews and take note of everything from the number of stars on their products to the number of reviews, as well as the different satisfaction scores. You can Google different brands and dispensaries to see if they have any noteworthy press coverage, and you can also look them up on sites like Reddit, Quora, and Weedmaps. Of course, everyone’s experience with a brand or product will be different, but you can still learn a lot by getting a sense of general customer sentiment.

5. Variety


From different cannabis strains to product categories, finding an online dispensary that has a solid selection of products is essential. A great benefit of buying cannabis online is that you can learn about and discover new products that may not be available in stores near you. Look for online dispensaries that offer a range of cannabis strains from CBD to THCa to Delta-8 and beyond. Also keep an eye out for brands that sell a range of product types including edibles, vapes, pre-rolls, flower, and concentrates. Too many options may be overwhelming, so try to find brands that categorize their products in interesting ways. At Mood, we don’t just organize our products by type, we organize them by desired mood — so you can shop a range of products for anything from sleep to focus to euphoric and more.

6. Reliability


There’s always the possibility of a hiccup when shipping and handling are involved, but a reliable online dispensary will take extra precautions and do everything they can to make sure their customers get what they ordered, on time. If you’ve ever spent money on a bunch of cannabis that never showed up, you haven’t been purchasing from the right places. Mood offers fast and free shipping on orders over $99, and honors that perk even if a discount brings you below the free shipping threshold. We use discreet packaging, and don’t require an ID or medical card to place an order. Mood also has a 90-day guarantee, and if your favorite product goes out of stock, you can request to be notified when it’s available again. Choosing from a store with a customer-centric delivery process will go a long way towards ensuring you have a good online shopping experience.

7. Responsiveness


The last thing to look out for? Great customer service. Choose an online dispensary that’s easy to reach, and that’s responsive to customer communication. It’s possible that you’ll have questions while you’re shopping online (just like you would in a physical storefront) and the company should be able to answer them quickly and competently. Make sure the dispensary you’re ordering from has a Contact Page, and also check if they have a customer support chat box. Mood's is located in the bottom left corner of every page on the website, so help is always just a click away.

All in all, buying cannabis online is a great idea as long as you do your due diligence to find a reliable source. Thankfully, you don't need to look any further. Mood checks all the boxes above, allowing you to shop online for safe and convenient cannabis products that meet your needs — and fit your mood. Check out our selection today.
