5 things you need to know before you buy

  1. Make sure you have your identification ready. You will definitely be asked to show your ID card and Medical card if you have one.

  2. Have an idea of what you’re looking for.  Most budtenders will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have, but be sure to do some research. Leafly.com is a favorite, to learn more about the myriad of options to consume, such as concentrates, edibles, and flower.

  3. Know WHY you are wanting to use cannabis. That way when you speak to your budtender, they will know exactly what to offer you.  I personally consume and use cannabis products for neuralgia, which is intense, typically intermittent pain along the course of a nerve.  So when speaking with a  budtender they will know what to offer me so that I can get the best options for pain relief.

  4. Understand that if you are shopping medically, there might be a process to finding out what works best for you.  Trying different strains, and different ways to consume will definitely help you hone in on what benefits your specific needs.

  5. Start small and have fun.  Most strains nowadays are loaded with THC - upwards of 27% + in some strains!  So microdosing will be important to be sure you don’t wig out! Start small with a few puffs from the pipe, or small bites of that 10mg edible.. No one is judging you, so be sure YOU DO YOU! Have fun exploring all of what cannabis can offer you.. There’s more than just flower, and concentrates.. There are edibles, topicals, sublinguals, bath bombs and SO MUCH MORE!!!!

*NOTE: Most dispensaries have ATMs, however, it’s always a good idea to be prepared and have cash ready for your purchase.
