Does insurance cover medical marijuana in Arizona?

Medical marijuana and associated costs are seldom covered by insurance.

Where do I find a Arizona cannabis dispensary?

Arizona’s recreational dispensaries are already open!

Buying Marijuana at Retail Location

To buy marijuana from an Arizona medical marijuana dispensary, you must be registered as a patient. To qualify and buy on your own, you must be an adult above the age of 18. When purchasing marijuana from a dispensary, you must provide evidence of ID and your digital medical marijuana card (via bar code on a smartphone or a printed copy). Those lacking evidence of medicinal marijuana patient status will be denied access to any dispensary in the state. Anyone over the age of 21 may buy cannabis goods once adult shops operate.

Marijuana Delivery Service

Arizona allows dispensaries to deliver to qualifying patients; however, there are quite a few guidelines they must follow to legally do so. Because of this, there are very few dispensaries that actually provide in-house delivery services. Fortunately, a local cannabis delivery service, Supurb, has legally made its way into the state’s medical marijuana infrastructure and is available for almost every dispensary. It works similarly to Uber Eats or Postmates and has been incredibly successful, especially during Covid-19 and the 2020 lockdowns. Per medical cannabis guidelines, deliveries can be made for up to 2.5 ounces at a time. However, this is also the maximum amount of cannabis a patient can buy every two weeks.

Therefore, only 2.5 ounces can be delivered if this does not cause the patient to go over their bi-weekly limit. There are currently no stipulations as to whether or not adult-use consumers may order for delivery. Stay tuned and we will keep this section updated! Arizona permits dispensaries to distribute to qualified patients, but there are strict rules to follow. As a result, only a few dispensaries provide in-house delivery. Fortunately, Supurb, a local cannabis delivery service, is accessible for virtually every shop. It operates like Uber Eats or Postmates and was very popular during the Covid-19 and 2020 lockdowns. Delivery of up to 2.5 ounces of medicinal cannabis is allowed. In addition, a patient’s maximum purchase every two weeks is 2. So, just 2.5 ounces may be given provided the patient does not go over their bi-weekly limit. Adult-use customers may presently purchase for delivery with no restrictions. Stay tuned as we update this area!

Arizona Dispensary Hours

Arizona now permits medicinal dispensaries to operate between 7:00 am and 10:00 pm. However, dispensary hours vary considerably (especially during Covid-19 and lockdown efforts). Individual communities may also set shop hours, although most cities follow Arizona’s general rules. Call beforehand, especially during Covid-19, if you intend to visit a dispensary or request delivery.

Purchase Restrictions

Patients or caregivers may buy up to 4 ounces of marijuana or marijuana products every 30 days. Patients may only take 4 ounces per month if two doctors agree. 4 ounces per month is generous, and we don’t see these restrictions restricting patients’ access to marijuana.
