It’s been just over a year since the recreational weed market opened up in New Jersey. As of this week, there are 33 adult-use dispensaries scattered across the state.

Another handful of new dispensaries large and small will likely open their doors to consumers in coming weeks or months, so we want to bring you the current details on where you can purchase recreationally.

For your convenience, we have provided regional lists broken down by county. You can see an interactive map of all recreational locations in New Jersey, so far, at the state government site here.

Make sure to watch for more of these lists as we keep you updated. This list contains locations and hours of operation for each dispensary.

In Central Jersey, nine companies run 15 dispensaries. There are three independently owned stores.
