To say that the cannabis industry is flourishing in New Mexico would be an understatement. While medicinal cannabis has been legal since 2007, cannabis for recreational use wasn’t available for purchase until April 1st, 2022. Since then, The Land of Enchantment has really embraced the use of the cannabis plant for health and wellness, with Albuquerque now having more pot shops than it does liquor stores. The Cannabis Reporting Online Portal showed cannabis sales in New Mexico for March of 2024 totaling well over $52 million dollars, with adult-use sales accounting for more than $39 million of that. On March 5, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham announced that in less than two year’s time, cannabis in New Mexico is now officially a billion-dollar industry. With well over a thousand licensed dispensaries operating in New Mexico, it can be easy to become overwhelmed. But never fear. We’ve eliminated the guesswork and compiled this list of the best dispensaries in New Mexico to make your decision-making easy!

    Flowers and Herb Markets should be on this list! They have locally grown organic cannabis, fresh flowers and gifts. This dispensary is super friendly and truly unique. Their prices are reasonable, and they even give free flower bouquets Sundays!
