With 2019 in full swing, it’s time to look back at 2018. Here at Leafbuyer, we strive to be your #1 resource for all things cannabis. So, for the third year in a row, we’ve compiled our Best of the Best List, celebrating the best dispensaries of the year.

Our Best of the Best List grows each year as marijuana legalization reaches new areas of the country. In 2016, we covered the best of Colorado dispensaries. In 2017, we looked at Arizona, Colorado, California, Michigan, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington. Our 2018 list is the most expansive yet. We’ve expanded the list to cover dispensaries in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Maryland, Michigan, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington.

We looked to our knowledgeable cannabis consumers to help us decide which dispensary was deserving of each award. Consumers sent in their picks for the winners in each category in each state, and we listened.

The categories we chose for the 2018 Best of the Best List were best product selection, best deals, best staff, and best design. These categories are what set dispensaries apart from the pack. There are countless new dispensaries opening every day, but they won’t all be around a few years from now. The cannabis industry is going to continue to expand, so finding a way to stand out is going to be imperative for marijuana business owners. Finding a niche like being known for having the most knowledgeable, welcoming staff allows dispensaries to make a name for themselves.

2019 is set to be an unprecedented year for the cannabis industry. Federal and state laws are changing, we’re learning more about the cannabis plant, stereotypes are being broken down, and we can’t wait to see what happens next. With recreational marijuana legal in 10 states, and medical legal in 33, our Best of the Best List will only get bigger and better.
