Planning to visit a marijuana dispensary to buy cannabis? Well, here are some things that you should know before visiting a local or online dispensary, especially when it is your first time visiting one.
- Research the Best Dispensaries
Research first about the dispensary – Before you actually go visit a marijuana dispensary, it would be best to be knowledgeable about it. Why? Because not all marijuana dispensaries offer medical and recreational marijuana. Moreover, different dispensaries have different prices, specialties, strains and membership benefits and requirements. Start by doing research online, Google is a great tool. Ask on reddit and try to find other users who can vouch with their personal recommendations. There is a lot of disparity between the quality of product and the transparency of information offered currently in the industry so make sure to ask a lot of questions and educate yourselves quickly.
- Bring ID and use Cash (No Credit Cards)
Bring cash and your ID – If you want to buy cannabis at a marijuana dispensary, whether in person or online, make sure that you have your ID and cash. Most dispensaries will only accept cash, so make remember to have some in your wallet, or if visiting an online dispensary, have some cash on your bank account and pay for your orders using Interac e-transfers.
- Research Different Strains and Products
Research about different marijuana strains and effects – Before you buy any cannabis or cannabis products, make sure you have the knowledge about different cannabis strains such as Sativa, Indica, and Hybrid. Why? Because these strains have very different effects on our body. For instance, Sativa has an uplifting effect while Indica is good for relaxation. But if you want both, you can go for hybrid strains which are often a balanced mix between the other two. Leafly is a great resource for doing strain research outside of visiting marijuana disensary.
