Approved medical marijuana patients in Arkansas must purchase their cannabis from a state-approved dispensary. Patients are not permitted to cultivate at home. As of November 2020, there are only 33 dispensaries across the whole state, which makes it important to know about the dispensary options near you. Arkansas MMJ law divides the state into 8 zones, in which there are 4 dispensaries each—with the exception of Zone 7, which has 5 cannabis dispensing businesses. Zone 1 begins in the top, northwest corner of the state and they zigzag down to Zone 8 from there. To help you find “the best dispensary near me,” we’ve selected some of the highest-rated dispensaries from each zone.
