Blazing through the Beaver State? Here are the top weed shops to add to your itinerary.
A state responsible for a sizeable slice of the West Coast’s natural splendor, it’s safe to say Oregon is an OG when it comes to progressive pot reform.
According to the Oregon Liquor and Cannabis Commission, as of Feb., 2022, there were a total of 757 active cannabis retailers. That number is sure to grow, with 1,158 pending retailer applications under active consideration with the OLCC.
That’s a lot of weed shops to visit, so we analyzed reviews from real Leafly users, sorted the data, and are sharing our rankings for the best cannabis dispensaries Oregon has to offer.
Highest-rated recreational dispensaries in Oregon
Back in 1973, Oregon became the first state to decriminalize cannabis, and it established a legal medical marijuana program in 1998. In 2014, Measure 91 was voted in, legalizing the consumption, personal possession, and homegrowing of cannabis by adults. The following year, regulated sales at recreational dispensaries got underway.
Currently, dispensaries need a recreational license if they wish to sell adult-use cannabis and a separate license for medical use (many businesses offer both).
Featuring a hybrid of medical and recreational options, read on for our roadmap to the best rated cannabis dispensaries shops in the Beaver State, from big cities like Portland and Eugene, to small cities like Medford and Salem, and everywhere in between.
