Medical Marijuana Flower Available at Louisiana Dispensaries January 1st!

For Louisiana medical marijuana patients, January 1, 2022 will indeed kick off a happy New Year. Medical marijuana flower will be for sale in Louisiana dispensaries, and many patients can order online to get medical cannabis delivered right to their door!

In order to buy medical marijuana flower, you’ll need to get a Louisiana medical marijuana card. Once you are approved, you can visit a dispensary to pick up your cannabis products, or you may be able to order online for convenient delivery.

Flower Most Anticipated Medical Marijuana Product for Louisiana Patients in 2022!

Flower is popular among medical marijuana patients in Louisiana because of its familiarity. Most patients who have previous experience with cannabis have used flower, making it an accessible form that has a wide appeal. And it doesn’t hurt that medical marijuana flower is less expensive than most vapes, topicals, edibles and other forms.

Cannabis flower was not originally approved as part of the state medical marijuana program, but regulators quickly recognized the value of offering this form to Louisiana patients.

In May, 2021, lawmakers passed HB 391, making it legal for dispensaries to sell flower to patients with a Louisiana marijuana card. The state’s two cultivators have been working hard at the grow sites at Louisiana State University and Southern University to get ready for the day that flower would be legal to sell, and estimates indicate that between 185 and 200 pounds will be available for sale on January 1.

Where Can You Get Medical Marijuana Flower in Louisiana?

Dispensaries are gearing up for an enthusiastic reception, and they are preparing to stock their shelves with as much product as possible to meet the oncoming demand. There are nine licensed dispensaries in Louisiana, and many patients in metro areas live in the delivery zone for a medical marijuana pharmacy.
