The Purple Butler Online Dispensary: Benefits of Online Dispensaries

Saying that the internet has changed practically everything is putting things lightly. Every day and in our daily lives we see how these changes affect us in big and little ways. One of the ways that the internet has affected the way we do things is the advent of online dispensaries.

In this article, we will be taking a close look at online dispensaries, considering the benefits they offer and why more and more people are choosing to make their purchases from them. We will be paying special attention to those that offer exotic medication like marijuana.

What is an Online Dispensary?

First, according to Webster’s online dictionary which you can see here:, a dispensary is “a place where medicine or medical or dental treatment is dispensed.” An online variation is therefore one that does not have to be visited physically.

You can visit the dispensary via their website’s store, look through their inventory and then place an order for what you want. This can even include prescription drugs, of course with the right prescription from your doctor.

Given the nature of the transactions, you need to be careful because there are a lot of scam sites posing as dispensaries. These sites aim to take your money, sell your details and possibly sell you adulterated products. You should therefore ensure you are making your purchase from a genuine website.

We need to be aware at this point that an online search may reveal something that looks like a discrepancy. We will find that the definition we looked at above encompasses online pharmacies. We’ll however, find that an online search for dispensaries will bring up results that have to do with the sale of cannabis and related products.

We will therefore be focusing on the benefits of online dispensaries as it has to do with the dispensary of cannabis, and other marijuana based products.

Benefits of Online Dispensaries

There are a lot of benefits that can be enjoyed from the use of online dispensaries. To give us a good understanding of some of these benefits, we will quickly discuss a few of the advantages that you can enjoy when you visit any reputable Canadian online dispensary.


The sale of marijuana for both recreational and medical use is legal in Canada. You can get the full details of the laws guiding its use in Canada here. You therefore do not need to go to street corners to get the product. The ability to place your order from your home and have it delivered offers great convenience.

In fact, some sellers offer same day delivery. That means you can place your order and have it delivered within 24 hours. This offers added convenience especially in emergency cases where the product needs to be used urgently. It also helps that you can place this order at any time of the day or night.


We know that marijuana is legal for users 18 and above in Canada. That said, you still might not want everyone up in your business. Ordering online affords you all the privacy you may need. From the ordering stage to the delivery, everything is handled discretely so no one besides you needs to know the details.

If you shop from reputable online establishments, your bank statements will reflect a billing that will also offer you privacy from prying eyes. The privacy you can enjoy is extensive even if you don’t need it.

Increased Choice

Shopping online has always afforded shoppers increased options. Whereas you would have needed to go from store to store comparing products, you can do this comparison online. In fact, with physical comparison, you forget the details of many of the products even before you get to the next store.

When you compare options and products online, you can simply open different tabs on your browser and compare as many as you wish at the same time. This helps make your comparison more efficient. You can also cover more ground within a short time. This makes it easier for you to get the best product from a wide selection.

Cost Saving

Since most online dispensaries operate entirely online, they are able to reduce their operational cost and transfer this savings to their customers. This means that they are more likely to sell their products at cheaper rates than physical stores.

The cost saving factor further increases when you add to the above the savings that the customer makes by not having to physically go to the store. With the combined savings, physical stores will be hard pressed to beat the prices that customers will enjoy from these internet stores.

The above are just the major benefits that internet based dispensaries offer. A closer look will reveal even much more benefits.

Some Possible Issues to Note

As with everything in life, where there is a benefit, there’s likely to be some down sides. To ensure that this article is well-balanced, we will look at a few cons associated with this method. The aim of doing this is so that you can watch and guard against it while shopping.

Too Many Options

They say, too much of anything is bad. Having too many options can lead to what psychologists have termed “Analysis Paralysis,” which is a situation where you are unable to make a decision because you are stuck, analyzing the situation. It may therefore be best to focus on a few trusted outlets and quickly look at their best products so as to reduce the number of options you will have to choose from.

Avoiding Scam Sites

The internet is a good thing but also has its dark side. Online stores do not give you a complete picture of what goes on behind the scenes. You basically will be trusting that what you are getting is what you ordered.  In some cases, scammers can setup storefronts for the purpose of defrauding unsuspecting individuals and even stealing important information from them.

You should therefore carry out some investigation before making a purchase on any site. Read reviews and look through the company’s “About Us” to get as much information as you can from them. The ideal company should have valid contact details. You can visit for a view of how a reputable internet-based dispensary should look like. The information you should look for can include a physical address and phone numbers.

If you don’t feel comfortable with what you are seeing, then don’t shop there. By the time you have read through enough reviews, you should be able to have narrowed down a list of potential outlets you can patronize. This should eventually come down to one that you that you now trust completely.


We live in a fast-changing world and must adapt to these changes as quickly as they come. We’ve discussed online dispensaries and the benefits they offer. We’ve also looked at some issues to be aware of as we shop on these sites.

With the information we have shared, you should now be better equipped to enjoy the full benefits of ordering your cannabis products on the internet. Remember that this begins with ensuring that you are dealing with a reputable store.
