The ramp-up to opening Arkansas’s medical Mary Jane industry may have been longer than Methuselah’s beard, but we’ve finally got a quorum of weed boutiques in greater Little Rock. Cardholders, blaze through a tour of the capital city’s finest greenery with help from the guide below. You’ll find the inventory similar from dispensary to dispensary, but each spot’s got its own style, setup and specials.

If you’ve ever wanted to step out into the blazing sun and squint out at a grain silo and a rusty red barn in rural Arkansas, unable to tell if what you’re smelling is your bag of freshly procured medical marijuana or the cow patty in the field across the road, this is your chance. When we visited Hensley’s roadside dispensary in August of 2019, a giant glass Mason jar in the lobby offered lemon-infused water from its spigot — just above a home decor sign that read “hey y’all” in cursive — and an impeccably dressed elderly woman in the waiting room confessed coyly to the receptionist that this was her first visit. A little like being at Grandma’s house, but with weed.
