Best Recreational Dispensaries in South Jersey

Now that the dust has settled since opening day on April 21, 2022 when recreational cannabis finally became operational in New Jersey, if you have not ventured into one of the 13 recreational (adult-use) dispensaries available, now is a great time to do so.

In this guide we’ll showcase all of the adult-use cannabis locations currently open in South Jersey and what you can expect.

South Jersey Adult-Use Dispensaries Currently Open

As of June 2022, there are currently only 6 recreational cannabis dispensaries open in South Jersey.

While that is certainly limited given the nearly 2 million residents who call South Jersey home, don’t worry as more dispensaries will be popping up later this year and in the years ahead.

Need some reassurance?

Look at a mature market like Colorado, where there are over 500+ recreational dispensaries throughout the state.

With that said, out of all the recreational dispensaries available in South Jersey, below are Cannabest’s top picks.

Curaleaf

What to Expect at a South Jersey Dispensary

Given the limited availability of recreational dispensaries in New Jersey, you can expect wait times, particularly on the weekend.

That said, most of the dispensaries have been quick to move through the lines with the average wait time between 20-60 minutes. As more dispensaries open up later this year and into next year, wait times should begin to subside.

One of the biggest complaints of the New Jersey cannabis market currently is the pricing, given it’s quite high compared to other states and what you can find on the street.

Of course this is due to supply and demand with limited options, but again, as more dispensaries open up you can expect price competition to take hold and more affordable options to arise.

The average pricing currently is the following:

  • Flower: $50-$60 [3.5g]
  • Pre-Rolls: $18-$20 [1g]
  • Vape Cartridges: $60-$65 [0.5g]
  • Edibles: $30 [100mg 10 pk]

Every dispensary usually offers deals to move older products, so don’t be surprised if you see lower prices available. For flower, you can save by purchasing the smaller buds or shake if available. While supply is limited, there are solid options available to provide the safe quality you’re looking for.

Remember, you must be 21 years or older to purchase adult-use cannabis in New Jersey, with a limit of up to 1 ounce of dried flower, or 5 grams of concentrates (or concentrates in a solution), resins, or oils and other liquid forms, or 1000mg of ingestible products (10 100mg packages) like gummies. A purchase of a combination of products may be 1/2 ounce of dried flower plus 2 1/2 grams of concentrate, or 5 packages of gummies and 1/2 ounce of dried flower.

Conclusion

We hope this guide gave you a nice overview of your recreational options in South Jersey and what to expect.
