Are you shopping around for the best dispensary near you? There are options all around you. What makes one marijuana store stand out from the others? Strain variety, knowledge and friendliness of staff, ease of shopping, and prices often play big factors in picking our favorite stores.
Cannabis in DC? Yes, please! Today we will be taking an in-depth look at Harvest HOC, a favorite nationwide dispensary.
How it Works
Medical Marijuana has finally made its way to our nation’s capital city. And, we couldn’t be happier.
For those that are new to shopping in a store for their cannabis, the first time can be intimidating. So, it does help to get the low down before heading out.
When you go make sure that you bring the appropriate items, or you will have to come back when you gather everything. Bring your ID and your Medical card when picking up, or shopping in the store.
Another major fact that you should be aware of is this is a cash-only (for the most part) business. Even if you have a medical card, insurance will not pay for it, and you can not use a credit card for purchases. So, don’t leave the house without cash.
Lastly, those under the age of 21 will not be permitted to purchase anything at Harvest, or even enter the store.
All Harvest HOCs required customers (and employees) to wear face masks while in the store. To get in and out even quicker read on to see how you can order online.
Shopping online at a dispensary is like no other online shopping experience. Benefits of shopping/browsing online
- You can take your time, there is no rush.
- Ordering online makes for quick and easy pick-up.
- For those that are not familiar with the process, or do not know how to purchase medical marijuana, there is a guide on the left-hand side of HOC’s page that will help you select what type of cannabis you are looking for, and how potent you would like it to be. You can choose from THC potency or CBD potency.
Make sure that you have your ID and a medical card when picking up. And, remember, no one can pick up an order besides the person whose name is on the card. No exceptions.

HOC runs amazing specials on certain days of the week, month, and some holidays.

In case you hadn’t noticed, vaping is a whole culture. The popularity of vaping may have started as a substitute for tobacco smoking. However, it has been adapted to the use of marijuana.
Vaping gives you a different effect vs smoking, topical application, or ingesting edibles. People prefer it for its potency and because it is discreet and has low to no odor.
At Harvest HOC there are more than a dozen different strains (500mg) to choose from prices starting around $45, going up to the $115 range. Don’t forget to pick up a battery while you’re there!
Skip through the part where you have to stop and charge your battery before you can enjoy your vape. No separate battery purchase necessary. Just unbox your vape, and go.

Pour and spray tinctures starting at $25. Oils & RSO syringes start around $50. Depending on potency and count, capsules vary greatly in price but start around $15.
Medical marijuana is used in topical forms for pain relief, healing skin issues, moisturizing, and for salves.
