Not The Fugazi – Best Weed Connects in NYC
Now that chronic has become semi legal in the city, even though with what seems to be completely random enforcement, the black market cannabis industry has revealed its true value. Needless to say, New Yorkers love smoking pot.
This poses an obvious question: What are the Best Weed Connects in NYC?
As the state struggles with the effects of legalization and enforcement, the black market has come out of the shadows, not into the light, but into a weird grey area within the existing law. Over the last year, what can only be described as illegal dispensaries, have been popping up nearly everywhere.
Not The Fugazi
Anyone who has visited or lived in the Big Apple either knows or has heard of the “Fugazi”. Some people know the band Fugazi. But New Yorkers know that something that is deemed fugazi, is fake or garbage.
According to the Urban Dictionary:
Fugazi – “Fake, unauthentic, sub standard person or thing”. Let’s use it in a sentence for the full effect: “yo those gold chains ain’t real son, they’re fugazi”. Having established the nuances of the term, it sets up the theme of this article perfectly.
The OG Weed Connects in NYC
Below are the two connections in NYC I still go to today. I’m not looking to go to a dispensary, wait in line for sub par chronic from some random person. The relationships created through old school cannabis distributers is unique and should be treasured. Never forget where we came from.
As you may have guessed, these are Not Fugazi. Far from it.
The Chronic Buddha has been operating in NYC for nearly four decades. The service has found a way to keep their existing clientele by utilizing excellent customer service, competitive prices, but most of all, they simply offering products unavailable anywhere else.
According to the website: “We source our weed strains from from Organic farms grown locally on US soil. Our suppliers utilize safe and sustainable farming practices to produce the finest quality products your money can buy”.
They go the extra mile and always try to keep in stock their customer’s favorite products. If there’s a specific brand or strain that you would like for them to carry, you can call them and let them know. If you see a brand or strain mentioned on the site that is not currently in stock, chances are they already have it on reorder and will have it soon again. Don’t hesitate to reach out with requests.
It’s hard to find New York Sour Diesel, but 9/10, the Buddha always has it in stock:
Sour Diesel, SFV OG, Biscotti, Grand daddy purple Hardcore OG, Blue Dream, Gelato, Purple Burst, Do si lato, Sour Tangy, Premium Jack, Sky walker OG. 100% verifiable straight from the Stiiizy.

Splash Brothers has been around since the early 2000s and is always consistent with quality and customer service. According to their website, they pride themselves in providing the absolute highest quality, lab-tested, pesticide-free recreational and medicinal products that the USA has to offer.
Like the Buddha, They go above and beyond and constantly surprising me with new products.
You can call and request that they stock a particular brand or strain. If a brand or strain is stated on the website but is not currently available, there is a good probability that they have it on backorder and will have it again shortly. Please do not hesitate too give them feedback, they strive on it.
The bud, concentrates, pens and my personal favorite, the hash, are always top shelf.
Moroccan Hash is made by heating or “browning” Kief to decarboxylate cannabis, which is the process of using heat to chemically activate the psychoactive THC cannabinoids in the plant. Heating Kief is a traditional favorite for maximizing THC potency and creating subtle changes to the plant’s terpene profile.
The hash is incredibly hard to find, in addition to being consistent in quality. This is impressive.
Lady ZAZA is a rare, hybrid strain that will engage all of your senses.
Splash Brother’s selection is full of products I didn’t even know about. They are usually around till 11PM and can make exceptions if you’re a regular customer.
The Digital Referral
Like a coffee shop, find a solid two or three sources that you want to see thrive in this new cannabis era. Always remember to vet your sources and ask questions if you’re unsure. Don’t fall for the fake stuff. I’ve had a lot of people over the years claiming they have the real deal, but they always show me some china bud, thinking I don’t know my chronic.
If you mention Johnny Savage and this article to the Buddha or the Brothers, you can get additional discounts on your first eighth and a FREE preroll.
