Pennsylvania is an original U.S. colony, steeped in history.  Philadelphia, PA’s largest city, served as the U.S. Capitol until 1800, and its’ Liberty Bell is perhaps America’s most iconic symbol of Independence.  Further on the capitol theme Hershey, Pennsylvania is known as the American Capitol of Chocolate.  PA is also one of few States with at least 2 ‘major league’ cities, both Philadelphia and Pittsburgh have professional baseball (MLB; Reds and Pirates) and football teams (NFL; Steelers and Eagles).

One area Pennsylvanians are lacking in is access to adult use cannabis and recreational dispensaries.  Pennsylvania does have Three neighboring States; New York, New Jersey and Maryland have voted for recreational cannabis and will be home to some of the best dispensaries in the northeast.  Philly is an hour drive from NYC dispensaries.

The Keystone State currently only permits qualified medical patients to purchase marijuana after paying for a medical card. The list of medical conditions was expanded to included anxiety disorders in 2019.  And a big bonus is that weed delivery in Philadelphia, weed delivery in Pittsburgh, and dispensary delivery in the rest of Pennsylvania is legal.

Another positive, Delta 8 dispensaries and hemp-derived cannabinoids are also legal and available across the State, and through online dispensaries which ship product directly to your door.

We looked at all options when considering our top pics for the best dispensaries in Philly , the best dispensary in Pittsburgh, as well as Allentown, Harrisburg and every city with Pot shops in the State.  Here’s what we think.
