Missouri Now Allowing Home Delivery of Medical Marijuana
Delivery - it’s not just for pizza anymore! In the modern world, you can get almost anything delivered right to your doorstep, and that now includes home delivery of medical marijuana for anyone with a Missouri marijuana card!
If you are a Missouri resident with a valid Marijuana Card, you can now get cannabis delivered to your residence. At the moment, most home delivery options seem to be in the major metropolitan areas like Saint Louis and Kansas City; but as the industry continues to grow, dispensaries throughout the state will likely add a delivery option. Here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about home delivery of medical marijuana.
Why Get Medical Marijuana Delivered?
For some Missourians, home delivery isn’t just the most convenient option, it’s the only option. Some individuals may not have transportation to get to a dispensary in the first place. Many Missouri residents aren’t able to leave the house because of a disability or medical condition that has left them homebound. Home delivery legalization means they’ll finally be able to get much needed relief.
Additionally, legalization is still fairly new, and there’s an unfair stigma surrounding cannabis in some areas. Missourians, especially those in smaller communities, may not want to deal with the potential gossip caused by others seeing them walk into a dispensary.
What Is Required to Receive a Home Cannabis Delivery?
In order to receive a marijuana delivery, you’re going to need your medical marijuana card and a photo ID. Many dispensaries allow you to scroll through their offerings, upload your documentation, and schedule a delivery directly from your phone. If you need help getting your card, give us a call at (877) 303-3117, or simply schedule a telehealth marijuana evaluation by visiting our website today!

Where Can I Find Medical Marijuana Delivery in Missouri?
The market for medical marijuana in Missouri is growing at a rapid rate. New dispensaries are popping up constantly, and many of them will eventually have home delivery service. At the moment, residents of the major metropolitan areas of St. Louis and Kansas City have the most options.
St. Louis Home Delivery
If you’re in St. Louis, Doobie has partnered with Jane dispensary to offer same-day delivery of a wide variety of items that include vapes, edibles, topicals, tinctures, pre-rolls, concentrates, and more. Doobie is a fast-growing national chain that offers ten percent off your first order when you opt-into their email list.
Kansas City Home Delivery
In Kansas City, BesaMe Wellness, a fast-growing chain of dispensaries, offers home delivery of a “diverse range of locally curated medical products.” They also have a loyalty rewards program that gives discounts and special offers to repeat customers.
North Kansas City Home Delivery
North Kansas City-area residents can get delivery from Riverside Wellness, a woman, minority, and veteran-owned business.

As medical marijuana continues to thrive and grow, many dispensaries will be adding a home delivery service, so it’s always worth checking with the dispensary nearest you.
How Does Home Cannabis Delivery Work?
If you’ve ordered anything from Amazon or even had food delivered to your home, it’s not that different. Patients will upload their medical cannabis card, a photo id, and payment method on a dispensary’s website or through an app. For patients who need assistance, many dispensaries are offering to send someone out to help them get started.
Do I Need to Be Present for Delivery?
Yes. Because cannabis is regulated, the card holder must be present when the delivery arrives. You can’t have someone else sign for you, and they won’t just leave it on your doorstep like the Amazon driver does. It’s also a good idea to have your card and ID handy, just in case the driver asks for verification.
Can I Pay Cash Upon Delivery?
Unfortunately, no. State law requires that all cannabis delivery orders be paid for BEFORE marijuana can leave the dispensary. You’ll need to pay in advance.
Should I Tip the Driver?
This is a question that pops up regularly. It’s customary to tip a driver who delivers a pizza, but it’s not customary to tip your pharmacist. Then again, your pharmacist probably doesn’t deliver. Depending on the dispensary, you may also notice an additional delivery fee when you place your order.
Regardless of this, it’s standard practice to give the driver some sort of tip. Many people give between ten to twenty percent of their total order price. Others may base their tip on the driver’s travel distance. If you don’t have cash on-hand, ask your dispensary in advance how to leave a gratuity. While tipping isn’t required, it’s the kind thing to do.
Home delivery makes it easier for Missouri residents to get the relief that medical marijuana provides. Remember, you’ll need a Missouri marijuana card to qualify for cannabis delivery.
