Weed is wonderful and legalization is way overdue but, let’s all be honest, the price hike associated with legalization sucks! Cannabis taxes are some of the highest in the country, with state taxes, local taxes, and a bunch of other unnecessary fees that drive the price up and make our favorite products less accessible.
With so much money wasted on taxes, there isn’t a stoner out there who isn’t looking for a deal on their greens; and despite the draconian taxes levied on it, there are lots of little tips and tricks you can use to save a few bucks. Read on for some of our favorite ways to save a little cash on your cannabis.

Rewards programs are one of the best ways to save a little money on weed. They usually work by keeping track of your purchases and giving you a certain amount of credit for every dollar spent. Once you’ve earned enough points, you can use them like cash to purchase your favorite products.
These programs are great, but it can take some time for you to earn enough reward points to shop with them; with many people often forgetting about the accrued points or lose their membership before being able to cash in on the savings. If you’re serious about saving a few bucks on your favorite products, the Eighty Six Rewards Program offers 1 point for every $1 spent. The points NEVER expire and are often ran with promos such as double point weekend benders and more. Sign up and start earning today!
Bundle Up & Save
Bundled products are a great way to find deals on cannabis products and give you that ‘more bang for your buck’ type of vibe. They are really popular, especially around the holiday season when people are generally doing more shopping. Bundles are groups of products that are typically sold individually but are grouped together and discounted slightly. If you can find a bundle of products you already know and love, this is a great little trick for saving a little extra money on weed.

Coupons, Sales & Deals
Come to think of it, if you have a favorite brand in the hemp space, chances are that they are CONSTANTLY running coupons and deals on their products. Coupons might not sound exciting and all, but some shops offer up to 30% off purchases, which adds up to a pretty penny, especially if you’re able to plan and budget accordingly and are making large purchases when you use your coupon. That way, instead of saving $5 or $10, you are saving up to $50.
When it comes to sales, the online space of hemp products are almost entirely built on sales. Whereas most dispensaries and other brick & mortar stores may run a deal on major holidays such as New Years, Christmas, Black Friday, and 4th of July, online retailers such as Eighty Six run a sale just about every week! Just like any other product, sales can be a hit-or-miss, but if you put in the work, you may just find a gem you never expected to see on sale, so keep your eyes peeled!
Switch Up Your Consumption Style
Changing the way you consume cannabis and hemp products also has the potential to help you save a bit of money. Some methods of consumption are simply more wasteful than others and moving away from these habits could make your stash last a lot longer. Switching out the blunts for edibles, bowls for a disposable vape are great ways to be less wasteful with your weed while simultaneously leveling up the experience for everyone involved.
Save Your Doobies & Kief
When you’re in a pinch, saving the last little tidbits of weed really go a long way. Now, this option might seem a little desperate, but if you are actively trying to save money, the best way to achieve that is to simply buy products less often.
Looking at pre-rolls for example, the last little bits of the pre-roll still contain quite a bit of product. And if you take the tips and consolidate the product, you’ve got yourself a very resin-filled amount of hemp that still has the power to knock you off your seat. After all, desperate times call for desperate measures.
