Showing ID as proof of age at a cannabis dispensary or with a delivery service so you can purchase cannabis products. Carding ensures dispensaries aren’t selling to minors.  

“I always get carded twice when I go to the dispensary—when I first walk in and at the cash register.”

“Carding customers helps dispensaries remain compliant.”

What is carding?

Carding at a cannabis dispensary is similar to carding at a bar, nightclub, or casino to ensure consumers are of legal age to purchase certain substances or participate in a particular activity. Cannabis shops and businesses in legal states in the US require customers be 21 or older to purchase cannabis; for medical patients, it can be lower, depending on the state and county. In Canada, it’s 18, 19, or 21, depending on the province.
