Dope City Supreme DC: Excellent Weed, Slow Delivery
Note: Since we first reviewed Dope City Supreme, they’ve dropped their prices on all flower, including bulk discounts, making them much more competitively priced.
Dope City Supreme, DC-based weed delivery service, is a uniquely luxurious experience. Their customer service was superb and their flower was fresh and potent. On the other hand, their delivery time requires a little more planning than other vendors.
Delivery companies are an excellent choice for getting weed in DC. You can even get something done while you’re waiting on someone to bring your goodies to you.
Delivery companies are generally slower than going into a storefront (except during rush hour), and Dope City is no exception. Our delivery took 2 hours from the time we ordered!
The quality of the marijuana AND customer service justified the wait for us. It helps that Dope City Supreme provides great bulk discounts, which we took advantage of.
Ordering On DopeCitySupreme.com
The first thing you’ll want to do is get to the menu website. You can fill out the form on dopecitysupreme.com or go directly to the Dope City menu website.
We were sent a link to the menu website after filling out a form on dopecitysupreme.com. We found the menu site confusing at first but quickly learned how to use it.
As per the i71 gifting loophole, Dope City sells image downloads of Washington, D.C. photography. With each download purchase, there’s a corresponding gift you’ll be eligible for.
Using The Menu Website To It’s Full Potential
We were looking for a reasonably priced oz of top-shelf. We were told by Dope City Supreme’s live chat that Double Diamond is generally as high quality as exotic-tier, but that exotic features connoisseur strains that are smaller-batch.
An oz gift of Double Diamond is also much more reasonable than for the exotic. 1 ounce gift of exotic-tier flower requires a ~$500 investment compared to ~$316 (including delivery/tax) for Double Diamond. Almost half-price for the same quality makes the Double Diamond a no-brainer.
The first step is to add the gifts you’d like to your cart.
Next, you’ll click the ‘Vew Bag’ icon, revealing the side menu.
Now, you’ll click ‘Add Eligible Products’ which will take you to the dopecitysupreme.com website checkout. There you can pay for the downloads that are eligible for the gifts you selected.
Dope City Supreme DC Has Excellent Discounts
Dope City has bulk discounts on almost every download they sell. You can get gifted an oz of top-shelf (Double Diamond-tier) stuff for ~$291 on Tuesdays, and $316 otherwise, which is still better than most competing cannabis delivery services in DC.
At $316, including the delivery-fee/tax, the total cost per 8th oz becomes $39; not bad. Especially considering that a single 8th of Double Diamond would cost ~$87.
Try getting an ounce of top-shelf at Gifted Curators, our highest-rated storefront, for $316. (they don’t offer bulk flower deals)
They also have a Tuesday Discount for bulk orders on Tuesday specifically, saving you an extra $25 on an ounce of flower, 5 gummy packs, etc.
We were told by live chat that they have a ‘wake n bake promotion’ which sees customers who order before 11AM getting a free gram of shake.
New customers also get a gram of shatter for free according to this deal on their 420DC profile.
Customer Service Was Second-To-None
Exceptional customer support/sales staff helped our shopper feel comfortable throughout the experience.
Trying a new weed vendor can be a grueling process, full of anxiety and awkwardness. There’s uncertainty and risks that come with trying someone new.
Our trust in Dope City was well-rewarded, and painless because of the level of service we received. Our sales rep never stopped communicating with us; we were updated promptly when the ETA changed.
It’s been said that you shouldn’t judge a company by how it reacts when it gets everything right, but rather how they respond to mistakes they’ve made.
The additional delay in delivery time wasn’t ideal, but their communication style helped our shopper feel their time was being respected.
Slow Delivery, But Still Worth It
Our shopper told their sales person via text that they would like delivery asap. We were originally told it would be about a 1-1.5 hour wait. It ended up being a 2 hour wait, which was okay with us though it may not be for you.
For Dope City to become a 5-star delivery service, they’re going to need to get that delivery time as close to sub 1 hour as possible.
Other vendors such as LOCAL’d excel at short-notice deliveries in a timely manner. Unfortunately, at Dope City you’ll need to plan a few hours ahead for best results.
On the other hand, if you can plan out your deliveries a few hours in advance this pitfall is easily avoidable.
Fresher Flower That Is More Potent
Strongest flower we’ve had so far in our history as DC Pot Reviewers. The THC-presence was immense with the batch of White Cherry Gelato we tested–both in the feelings experienced upon combustion, but also the visible trichome amount.
The flower came in a nice quality but boring black bag that had a sticker on it, with the strain handwritten. It came with a business card packed in the bag.
White Cherry Gelato from Dope City is an excellent sleepy-time strain. It is great for pain-relief and insomnia as it’ll have you feeling right and dozing off in no time.
The flavor is berries and grapes, and maybe some burnt sugar. Tasty and no chest-harshness either, making it an exceptionally smooth smoke. Don’t overdo it with this batch, or you’ll have the best sleep of your life.
They’ve Been Around Since At Least 2017
On GentlemanToker’s website we can find a Dope City review that dates back to the December of 2017–so they’ve been around for at least 5 years. Their logo badge also says “EST 2017” which seems to communicate the business started then.
Looking through years of social media posts about them, we found mainly reddit comments from random accounts who have positive things to say about Dope City Supreme.
We’re unable to find anything scandalous like the fake reviews from Gifted Curators, or the fake weed from Dreamland.
Dope City Supreme has been around for years, presumably providing a high quality experience like the one we had.
Their cannabis was the best we’ve gotten so far in DC but their delivery speed lags behind larger conglomerates. If LOCAL’d or Gifted Curators is McDonalds, Dope City Supreme is Five Guys.
Best In Class Flower: Worth The Wait
Dope City Supreme isn’t the cheapest option–particularly if you just order an 8th of top-shelf.
Many vendors have okay cannabis, but their top-shelf isn’t anything to brag about; Dope City Supreme doesn’t have that problem.
But they have their own shortcomings to improve on. They’re slow and the menu website is confusing to new users.
We believe they make up for this with quality customer service and tons of discounts. We got a great deal on our ounce of White Cherry Gelato and have no regrets. We’d strongly encourage you to try this delivery service out.
Dope City has been my go to for years because of the consistent quality. The wait can be annoying but they do deliver sub 1 hour sometimes.

I’ve never had a bad experience with dope city! Definitely my preferred service whenever I’m in DC.
Drivers are all local professionals familiar with the city!
