How to Buy Weed From a Dispensary

Not sure how to buy marijuana products from a dispensary? Well, then you’ve come to the right place.  

If you’re new to the world of weed, it can be intimidating. But not to worry because it’s not as complicated as you might think. You just have to do a little preparation and know what you want out of your experience.

Do a Little Research  

To know what you want out of your weed experience, you’ll need to do some research.

First, are you looking to eat, drink, smoke, or vape your weed? This will determine whether you get edibles, seltzers, tinctures, flower, or a vape. Each will give you a different experience. 

Second, are you looking for a Sativa, Indica, or Hybrid strain? To put it simply, Sativa is a daytime weed, Indica is a nighttime weed, and hybrid is a blend of both. 

Third, you should look at the dispensary website before going to the store. Get a feel for the products, the prices, and their special offers. For example, this Florida dispensary website Harvest House of Cannabis talks about locations and deals.  

Know What to Bring 

Every dispensary is different, but most require you to bring a form of ID (proving you’re over 21). So before you leave the house, make sure you have your ID because it will likely be checked at the door and scanned. 

And pro tip: bring cash! Many dispensaries only accept cash or will charge you a fee for paying with a card. 

Talk to the Budtenders 

A budtender is someone who works at a dispensary. And most dispensaries don’t have products out on the floor, so you’ll likely have to talk with one to get your weed. 

Budtenders know marijuana inside and out, so ask them questions such as what are the distinctions between HHC and Delta 8 or for their product recommendations. They can tell you about specific strains, the onset time frame, and the way each product will make you feel. 

And don’t be embarrassed if you’re a beginner, they want to help everyone! 

Check Your Products 

Dispensaries usually don’t rip you off, but it’s always a good idea to check your products before you drive away. 

If you purchase edibles, tinctures, or seltzers, check the date on which they were packed. If they’re past the expiry date, go back into the dispensary and exchange them for fresh ones. 

If you purchase flower, inspect it using your senses. In general, high-quality flower will feel sticky, look vibrant in color, and smell delightfully pungent. It also shouldn’t have any signs of bugs or mold, which can be dangerous to consume. 

Now You Know How to Buy Weed 

The world of weed isn’t so scary after all! Because if you do your research, bring your ID, and chat with the budtenders, you’ll have a great experience. And pretty soon, you’ll be walking into your local dispensary like a pro.
