SNACKZ! DC Dispensary Information

SNACKZ! DC Dispensary is super easy to get to from the Howard Theater. All you need to do is walk 1 block down Florida Avenue. Keep an eye open for Xaza Streetwear and Sneakers Boutique, which shares a building with SNACKZ! Once you’ve made it inside Xaza, you have located the number one dispensary in the DC area.


SNACKZ! has a wide selection of excellent cannabis products including pre-rolls, edibles, and flowers. We have 3 different tiers of flower; Premium, Exotic, and Top Shelf Designer, however we believe that customers will enjoy their experience no matter which shelf they are shopping from. 


For those looking for something quick and easy before a concert, we recommend our Pre-roll selection. These are the best products for someone looking for something simple that is ready to smoke as soon as you walk out of the store. We have our “SNACKZ! pre-roll” , which is a classic king size pre-roll made with premium flower. Our “dipped and dusted” preroll is similar to the SNACKZ! Pre-roll coated with kief on the outside. We also carry a 3rd option, the “Crumble Pre-roll.” The “Crumble Pre-roll” is a pre-roll infused with a worm of THC “crumble,” which is a form of distillate. 


With this epic line up of cannabis products, SNACKZ! Is the most convenient and best place to get weed before an event at the Howard Theatre.
