Happy 420, Phoenix weed smokers!
Ya’ll have come so far in so little time: from a pretty tightly controlled medical marijuana state to a full-on legalization bastion beginning in 2021. Today, all adults 21+ have every type of cannabis modality—flower, extracts, edibles, even hot sauce.
California’s finest ideas have rolled east. Major brands like Alien Labs, Wyld, and Kiva have branches in Arizona. Arizona has world-class indoor growers, and its extract-makers are dialing in the latest live rosins, just like Cali’s heads. Phoenix pot prices can get competitive, especially in edibles.
Phoenix’s dozens of world-class dispensaries stand ready for 420 with designer flower, solventless carts, trendy edibles, and outrageous infused pre-rolls. Skip the line with delivery or in-store pickup for these editor’s picks.
Hot flowers at Harvest HOC
Harvest HOC of Phoenix might be among the most well-stocked shops in Phoenix, with 1,180 items, including 267 flowers to choose from.
You don’t see this very often—ball out with a $240 eight-ounce of cold cured live rosin from Drip. That’s 3.5 grams of fresh frozen Strawberry Shortcake x Snoopdawg that got ice water hashed and rosin pressed into an extract worth more than gold.
For flowers, on the top shelf sits Alien Labs’ Xeno eighth at $70, or the strain Atomic Apple. If you want to taste the flavors of 2022, you gotta pay up.
Get all the Connected Gelonade goodness in a smaller value format with $110 quarter-ounce of smalls. 22Red’s Donny Burger is a good splurge at $60. Shango’s Gelatti eighth at $55 also sounds nice.
Sour Diesel fem seeds from I Love Growing Marijuana.com
Sour Diesel seeds are an excellent choice for anyone looking to add a get-up-and-go cultivar to their gardens. The sativa-leaning hybrid is known for its energetic, fun, and psychedelic high with an energy kick that will have you clearing the day’s to-do list in no time. Just want a fun day of feeling good? The fuel-forward, funky strain is great for that, too. The seed-smiths at I Love Growing Marijuana are celebrating the season with their biggest sale ever, so right now you can buy ten seeds and get ten seeds free of Sour Diesel fems and a huge selection of other strains.

Can’t take THC? Wyld 20:1 CBD Strawberry gummies are delicious.
Vital Sensi Stripes
Slightly sour and fully infused, these tasty Sensi Stripes from Vital deliver 10mg of THC with a fast onset of effects thanks to nanoemulsification—a process that makes cannabinoids tiny and water-soluble so that they can be absorbed more quickly than with traditional edibles. The sugary coating and texture are meant to take you right back to your favorite gummy worm, and you can expect made-from-scratch quality and natural flavoring. Vital is sweetening the deal this 420 with BOGO sales on all Vital Sensi Stripes and German-style Gummies at Zen Leaf dispensaries in Arizona on 4/20/2022.
Cart Nirvana found
It’s a golden era for cannabis vaping. Over at Nirvana Center in West Phoenix, there are 179 cartridges alone. We gravitate toward the high-end, like the High-Grade AZ Sauce Cart in White Tahoe Cookies. Sauce carts have more terpenes, and thus flavor and effects than a regular distillate cart.
Or go solventless in a cart format with DRIP Oils’ live rosin Gelato 41 Bacio cart. Live rosin gets extracted from fresh-frozen, ice-water washed buds; other strains include Cookies n Cream.
If you are going to vape distillate, look at the Lemon Faderade from Timeless, or the Select Elite Super Jack for classic daytime effects, or the Clean Cart savory strain Meat Breath for something really weird and different.
fiveDaily Buzz Gummies
The most buzzed-about product in five’s lineup of CBD+THC gummies & tinctures, Daily Buzz Gummies make it easy to get your daily dose of relief. Each gummy contains 25mg of CBD, 5mg of THC, and the highest concentration of minor cannabinoids. Turn to these full-spectrum wonders whenever you need a joyful lift. As a big 420 bonus, you can get 40% off + free shipping sitewide from five on 4/20-4/21.
Spotting deals at Tru|Med
Over at Tru|Med, staff recommends the Rainbow Belts flower or the Apple Fritter kief from DRIP for $20.26
Starting at the lowest price points, we like these $8 3-packs of Alien Labs Galactic Gummies in Bluto, Cosmic Cherry, and Atomic Apple—10 mg each; or the Alien Labs 10-pack of Melonade gummies at $20.87.
Face Mints pre-rolls start at $12.

Lastly, carts start at $35.31 for a DRIP Candy Apple half-gram or Mimosa.
Highest-THC at HWC, or Marigold

Over at Marigold, search by highest-THC and note the infused pre-rolls lineup. Some run 46% THC., like the Melted brand Lemon Vuitton, dipped infused tiger pre-roll, 2 grams for $60, or Lava Cake.
Even better, the Item 9 Batter Up infused GMO x GMO—3.5g for $75, or the Packwoods OG Kush Blunt—2.5g for $59.
We’d also burn the Tryke Anti-Gravity preroll in Khalifa Kush for—$28 for 1.2g, or the Dr. Zodiak’s Moonrock brand Peanut Butter Souffle for $32. Also where in the world will you ever see something as crazily named as the Core Concentrates Batter Blunt 2×1 OG#19—2g for $42. Those are all wild joints for 4/20.
