What services does your dispensary offer?

In addition to amazing customer service by our Budtenders in person at 3rd Street, we also offer Express Pickup and Delivery options. You can learn more about these services here!

Are there perks to being a repeat customer?

Definitely! 3rd Street Dispensary has a loyalty program. We hope that you enjoy your 3SD experience and want to continue coming back to our dispensary. And if you do, we want to reward you for that! As a loyal patient/guest, you will earn points with every purchase that you can redeem for savings or other 3SD goodies. More details on this program coming very soon.

Do I need to schedule an appointment to visit?

Nope, come on by! All visits to 3rd Street Dispensary will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Do you usually have a line?

Typically, no. Dispensary traffic tends to come in waves. Do not let a line deter you! We are staffed up every day to minimize lines and our patients/guests’ wait. For the most up-to-date information on the busyness of the dispensary, please call us at (816) 890-9333.

Can a visitor come with me?

Yes, you are welcome to have a visitor accompany you when you come to our dispensary. FYI — they must be at least 18 years old, and will need to present a valid, government-issued ID card (a driver’s license is perfect!) when they check in at the front desk with you.

Why do you have armed security on site?

Because marijuana is still scheduled as a Schedule I Drug, we cannot accept debit or credit cards as payment. This leads to increased cashflow on the premises and we want to do our part to protect the patients/guests at 3rd Street Dispensary. We fully recognize that marijuana users are typically harmless. It's the cash robbers that put us at risk — ha! We're not afraid of our patients/guests.


How much does it cost to get a medical marijuana patient identification card?

When applying for your patient I.D. card, there is a fee for patients starting at $25 — and a separate fee for caregiver applicants, starting at $25 — that must be paid when you submit an application. There is also a $25 renewal fee due, after a year, for each type of card you wish to renew. These fees are paid directly to the state, and subject to change. Patient cultivation includes a $100 fee upon application and renewal. Please note that the fee for seeing a medical marijuana doctor before becoming eligible to apply is a separate cost that will vary per clinic.

Why should I buy from a dispensary?

Marijuana has been heavily trafficked through the black market during its federal prohibition. As the movement to legalize marijuana has progressed and states have begun allowing access to marijuana for medicinal use (even to recreational in some cases), the cannabis consumer has benefitted in many ways. By purchasing from a dispensary, you are not only complying with Missouri state law, but also you're getting trusted product with no harmful additives. The cannabis in our dispensary has been lab-tested for quality assurances, and we always provide full disclosure on every product's contents. We're happy to give y ou this information!

How much can I legally buy?

Qualified MMMP patients are allowed to purchase up to 4 oz. (32 MMEs*) of compliant product per month . * = MME stands for Missouri Marijuana Equivalency Unit How much can I buy at 3SD? This changes based upon product supply and demand. We want to get to a place where you can purchase as much as your card allows on any given visit, but our current priority is to give all patients an opportunity to obtain medicine and provide reliable hours for our team members. You can call us to inquire about purchase limits prior to your visit (816) 890-9333.

OMG I can't stop eating. What can I do to curb my appetite?

Some strains can have this effect more than others. Your brain may be saying "I'm hungry" when you’re actually thirsty from the dehydrating effect of cannabis consumption. The best thing is to hydrate before and during medical marijuana use. A 3SD pro tip: Stock your fridge with healthy snacks for when the munchies are just too strong to fight.

Why do I feel nauseous?

This is a common tell that you’ve over-consumed. Be sure to hydrate! And next time, lower your dose. We highly recommend using a cannabis journal to help you find your "sweet spot" with your medicine.

I'm taking other medication(s). Will cannabis use affect me differently?

A pharmacist is available on Tuesdays (11am to 3pm) and Thursdays (3pm to 7pm) for 3SD patient/guest consultations for discussions regarding pharmaceutical drug interactions with medicinal marijuana.

Products & Prices
