Millions of Californians and visitors can enjoy legal cannabis delivered to their door like it’s the future or something.
Thanks to legalization via Proposition 64, since 2018, any person age 21 and older in the state—resident or tourist alike—can call in a marijuana delivery or order online.
Californians bought $2.03 billion in legal cannabis in 2019, but delivery is so new and California is so big, Golden State smokers and visitors need a handy guide to shopping around and placing their first weed delivery order.
Well, Leafly is here to serve.

Marijuana delivery news
California cannabis delivery and pickup have surged in popularity due to COVID-19. The California Dept. of Public Health discourages going inside public businesses, so delivery orders have doubled since before the pandemic, delivery services report, and they promise to stay strong into the future. Michigan and Nevada have followed California’s model rules, adding delivery in their areas as well.
Two years into licensed sales, California has several hundred delivery services—each with an average of several hundred menu items including flower, extracts, edibles, and more. Delivery services are adding online payment options, expanding their service areas and menus, and diversifying into specialties like extracts, or women-focused brands.
California cannabis delivery law
Licensed and regulated by the Bureau of Cannabis Control (BCC), marijuana delivery is legal for adults age 21 and over to a physical building’s address with a valid form of identification.
Some cities are suing to deprive their citizens of regional choice, or any delivery at all. But the BCC and the state’s Attorney General have sided with the voting majority as well as cannabis consumers. Legal experts expect the right to statewide delivery to be upheld.
Delivery services are still subject to local limits on the time, place, and manner of delivery—which may include operating hours or acceptable delivery locations.

One key factor is where you are located. Delivery services can be grouped by delivery area—a few deliver statewide, while most are regional or citywide. The average delivery order is about $90.
The most popular products are flower, followed by edibles, vape pens, extracts, and topicals. Cash is king, though some places take debit cards online.
