The world of cannabis is a large and mysterious one, with many products and strains to choose from. If you’re new to buying weed or have never been to a dispensary before, then I understand that this can be overwhelming. But don’t worry–we’ve got your back! We’ve compiled some tips on how to navigate weed dispensaries so that next time you go shopping for cannabis products at one of these locations, you’ll know exactly what do when the moment comes:
Have Your ID Ready
When you arrive at the dispensary, be sure to have your ID ready. Bring your driver’s license, passport and state-issued ID card as well. If you’re a first time user of medical marijuana, don’t worry—you won’t need to bring anything other than your ID!
Ask For Recommendations
A great way to make sure you are getting what you want is to consult with a bud-tender. Tell them about your medical condition, and then ask questions. When it comes to choosing edibles or topical products, make sure that you understand how much THC each product contains and its dosing. If you are new to cannabis, know that there are different levels of THC in each plant: INDICA (5 percent), Sativa (15 percent) and Hybrid (10–20 percent).
Make Sure You Understand The Dosing Of Any Edible Or Topical Product You Buy
When you’re browsing the shelves at your local dispensary, it can be easy to get overwhelmed by all the different product types and strains. However, if you have a basic understanding of how cannabis works, this information will help guide your shopping decisions.
First, it’s important to understand that there are three main types of cannabis products:
- flower (also called herb) — dried buds and leaves from the plant; contains THC and CBD.
- concentrates — oils that have been extracted from the plant material (e.g., hash oil); these also contain THC and CBD but in much higher concentrations than flower.
- edibles — food products infused with cannabis (such as brownies or cookies); unlike other forms of consumption, edibles can take up to 90 minutes before they work.
Find What’s Right For You
There are a lot of options available to you, but the budtenders will help you find what’s right for you. They’re there to answer questions about the products they sell and will also offer recommendations based on your preferences and past experiences. The best way to make this process even easier is by making sure that you know exactly what kind of experience you want before going into the shop.
Again, it’s important not just what kind of experience do I want but how do I want it?
If you have never purchased cannabis before, ask yourself: Do I want something that will give me an energetic high? Or maybe one that will put me right to sleep? There are many different strains with different effects—and each one comes in many different forms (such as edibles or tinctures). You’ll want to figure out which works best for your needs before heading into a dispensary so that when it comes time to purchase something from our store; we can help guide them towards choosing properly tailored products!
Choose Strains That Have Less Than 20% THC Content
If you’re new to cannabis, it’s best to choose a strain with less than 20% THC content. You can usually find this information on the package or label of your bud. If possible, go for 10% or less.
- Strains with more than 20% THC are likely to cause anxiety and paranoia in some people. If you have never tried cannabis before and don’t know what effects it may have on you, it’s best to start with something low in THC content.
- Experienced users may want a higher-THC strain that provides intense euphoria which can help them relax and unwind after work or school.
Be Sure To Check The Menu And Prices Online
To save some time and potential confusion, be sure to check the menu and prices online before going out to the dispensary so that you don’t waste your travel time and can order right away when you get there.
Another tip is to be familiar with what’s available. This may sound obvious, but it’s important to know what different strains look like, how they’re prepared (e.g., smoked or infused into edibles), and how much they cost per gram before even stepping foot in a dispensary.
You should also have an idea of what you want beforehand; this will help avoid any last-minute indecision or anxiety about making a good choice for yourself. Make sure that whatever strain or product you choose fits within your budget (so make sure not only do your research beforehand but also ask questions if needed). But above all else, remember that weed dcDispensary wants its customers to have fun! So try new things if possible—you never know what might become a favorite!
Know Your Budget
Knowing your budget ahead of time will help you avoid overspending. If you don’t know what you can afford, ask the budtender for recommendations based on your budget. They may also be able to direct you to special offers and discounts at their dispensary that are only available for new customers or first-time purchases.
If this is your first time buying marijuana at a dispensary, ask about any special offers they have when buying flowers (which are often more expensive than concentrates).
Keep An Eye On Special Offers And Discounts
There are always special offers and discounts available at the weed dispensary. You can find these on their website, and they vary from time to time. If you’re new to the dispensary, ask about any first-time customer discounts that may be available. If you are a veteran or a medical patient, ask about any specific veterans or medical patients discounts that might be available. If you’re old enough to qualify as a senior citizen, check if they have any senior citizen discounts for you. Finally, if you’re a student looking to buy legal marijuana without having to wait until your 21st birthday (or even worse…perish the thought), see if there is any applicable student discount for your situation!
We hope this guide will help you have a better experience at the dispensary. Remember that there are tons of options out there, so keep an open mind when it comes to choosing which one is right for you.
