Hell has frozen over, folks. Missouri—smack dab in the center of the midwest—has legal, recreational cannabis for adults 21 and up.
Adult-use sales of weed started right before Kansas City won the Super Bowl, and the launch has been a smashing success. Dispensary traffic shot up 10 times above average from the medical era, and it hasn’t slackened since. Sales hit $102 million the first month, and upped to $132 million in the second month.
Missouri has 192 retail licenses getting pot from 60 cultivation licensees. Some of them—like Illicit Gardens / From the Earth—are vertically integrated. But each store also carries products from other companies.
Customers drive into Missouri from five neighboring states and beyond. Shop receptionists regularly see passports from Mexico, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, and South America.
How to order weed delivery online with Leafly
So—how’s the herb? It’s good! We smelled over a dozen strains in a huge grow as well as all the jars we could smell in four Kansas City stores over two days during the NFL Draft. Then we started rolling joints. Missouri has serviceable Ice Cream Cake—a great barometer for any state market. The Clementine was on- point, same with the Black Garlic, GMO, Lemon Fire MAC, and Diesel Train. Grape Gas from Good Day Farms is a stand-out value buy.
Keep in mind: Torrid levels of demand and limited supply mean prices will be strong, and bags will be hard to secure. Pro-tip: Order ahead on Leafly to lock in your order for pickup later.
