What Should I Bring On My First Boston Cannabis Dispensary Trip?August 28, 2023
It’s finally time—you’ve thought about going to a cannabis dispensary. Now, you have committed to the trip and picked your location. What comes next? If...
If you have ever been to a dispensary, you understand that there are some unwritten rules that everyone seems to just naturally adhere to. Your first trip to the dispensary is always a fun experience, but it helps to know what to expect when walking into shops with such extensive inventories.
Once you have a dispensary in mind, it definitely helps to be prepared so you can get the most out of your experience. Here are a few ways that you can make sure you can have a great experience at that new dispensary you’ve been wanting to try out.
One of the best ways to ensure you have a smooth and seamless experience at the dispensary is to make sure you consider what you are looking for in a cannabis product. Do you like Indica, Sativa, or a certain type of Hybrid? Do you want it to be a flower or concentrate?
The more prepared you are, the more your budtender can personalize your experience. Budtenders can also help you learn more about certain products if you need some advice. They will be very willing to discuss how you plan to use the products, what effects you like to experience, and even your weekend plans!
We can guarantee one thing — budtenders love to talk about weed. If you have ever had burning questions about the effects of strains, are looking for some choice advice from an expert, or are a novice, budtenders can help you really learn about cannabis and different ways to find your ideal strains and consumption methods. They can show you new products, pieces, and strains that you may never discover unless you ask!
There’s nothing worse than showing up to a dispensary and not being able to use your debit card with no cash on hand. When you have a dispensary in mind, check the website to see if they accept card payments or if they are cash only. Cannabis is still illegal at the federal level, which may present some challenges when it comes to payment.
Depending on your state, the check-in process for your dispensary may be different. Some states allow for a simple ID check while others may require a more in-depth process. While it may seem like an annoying bureaucratic process, it is necessary at the moment due to the current regulatory status of cannabis. If you want dispensaries to remain open, just be respectful and follow the guidelines!
No matter what type of products or advice you get, that’s all it is — advice. At the end of the day, only buy what you feel is right for you, and don’t feel pressured into anything. Approach cannabis with a “friendly curiosity.” So, be open to new experiences with weed, but within reason. Even if you end up with products you may not adore, it is all a learning experience. Over time, you will find what strains and even cannabinoids work best for your body.
Overall, learning how your own body reacts to cannabis is the most important thing you can do to learn how to use cannabis to better your life. Other than that, try your best to do some research so you are prepared for your next dispensary trip. If you do this, you will have a much better chance of finding great cannabis products that agree with your tastes. From gummies to wax, you can be sure to find it during your next dispensary trip.
