You’ve got a marijuana dispensary or related business. You want to build awareness, rank well in Google for local cannabis-related queries and you want more customers. A good place to start is making sure your business is listed on the following sites:

If you have any more you’d like me to add, please post in the comments.



  • Sol  May 12, 2014 at 9:05 am also lists relevant businesses.

  • Sol  May 12, 2014 at 9:35 am

    Haha true Andrew, but it has a decent chunk of traffic.

  • MMST  May 12, 2014 at 6:30 pm

    Nice list, Andrew. looks unfinished, unorganized and ugly. On moment got a flash of GeoCity pages.

    • Andrew Shotland
      Andrew Shotland  May 12, 2014 at 6:49 pm

      Agreed. I only put it up there because it was showing up for a lot of queries.

  • Sol  May 12, 2014 at 7:07 pm

    Craigslist is ugly too 😉

  • Jim Rudnick  May 13, 2014 at 5:31 pm

    i just don’ know what to say here…but traffic is traffic….

  • davie  May 13, 2014 at 8:42 pm Can’t believe that wasn’t on the list.

  • Matt Ramos  May 14, 2014 at 3:49 pm

    A growing niche for sure.. Never thought about optimizing for this. Probably not a bad idea to build a local marijuana site right now to get in the game.. Not that I have time for that.

  • scott  May 19, 2014 at 3:08 pm


    Thanks for the great resource, I own a number of properties in this niche and will take advantage of these resources!

  • Justin  July 31, 2014 at 3:09 pm

    If you are reading this and agree with any of the list this guy has.. You either dont understand the industry or just dont care. WEEDMAPS being the #1dispensary finder in the world bringing more than 15 patients within 20 mins of an icon open should be the priority. All these other sites are a joke… use google weedmaps and get a free listing on all those other competitors that dont have any visibility.

    Hey Justin,

    Thanks for stopping by. Either I was unclear in the post or you misunderstood its intent.

    I was trying to figure out which directories have the best citation value for dispensaries. This does not necessarily mean which directories drive the most leads.

    I agree with you that Weedmaps is a great site and could be the best for driving leads, but based on the data we saw, it was not the top citation used by Google.

  • Dan  December 5, 2014 at 3:55 pm

    How about as a resource? They’re the first marijuana dispensary price comparison website.

  • VaporPlants  February 24, 2015 at 3:53 pm

    Check out these as well:


    State specific:

  • Tim  July 13, 2016 at 5:47 pm is a Chicago dispensary directory.

  • Adam Scott  July 19, 2016 at 3:36 am is one of the best online resource to find medical marijuana dispensaries, marijuana delivery services, expert medical marijuana doctor and local medical marijuana grower in your local geographic region.

  • Rc  September 18, 2016 at 12:12 pm

    looking for a map that contain listings of mmi locations in USA that we can legally use
    does it exist?

  • The Weed Stuff  December 9, 2016 at 3:48 am

    first of all Thank you for providing the list of sites.
    My query is are all of them free to register?

    • Andrew Shotland
      Andrew Shotland  December 9, 2016 at 9:26 am

      I believe many of them have a “freemium” model

  • The Weed Stuff  December 10, 2016 at 2:45 am

    not working –

  • Mark  March 7, 2017 at 8:38 am

    This is a good one not on your list!

  • Doctor and Crook  March 21, 2017 at 4:03 am

    Been looking for this in awhile. Thanks for putting up the list.

  • Dan D  November 11, 2017 at 3:03 pm

    Weed List ( is a site that provides price comparisons for several online marijuana dispensaries.
