The Artist Tree marijuana dispensary currently accepts payment via debit card and cash. Unfortunately, we do not currently accept credit cards due to federal restrictions on cannabis banking.
Many patients and customers new to buying legal cannabis naturally assume that marijuana dispensaries accept credit and debit cards like any other business. Unfortunately, as most experienced cannabis consumers know, cash is king at the dispensary. This is because cannabis remains illegal at the federal level, and most banks need to comply with federal law and regulations. While there are a few workarounds if banks are willing to jump through flaming hoops, providing credit and debit card services remain out of reach for most dispensaries. While this ridiculous situation of discordant marijuana payment solutions may be changing and hope is on the horizon, most marijuana dispensaries have strained relationships with banks and payment processors. They know that the bank or credit union may close their cannabis merchant account at a moment’s notice, sometimes without warning.
Luckily for The Artist Tree customers, you can use your debit card. We also have an ATM on-site for your convenience.
