When I was buying cannabis on the black market, you had to truly be well-connected with people if you wanted top shelf weed for less than $50 for an eighth of an ounce.
These cannabis flower products were not lab tested and could range up to 15% in THC regardless of how awesome the buds look or the power of the aroma when it first creeps into your nose.
Buying at dispensaries means that my marijuana is perfectly clean and labeled for potency. And on top of that assurance, I definitely know what strain I am smoking and can compare to whatever else is available. By doing this, I actually have come to learn that I love sativa strains during the day for working and enjoy indicas in the evening for unwinding. Best of all, the dispensaries in my state all offer first-time-patient discounts, typically up to 50% off your first order. Since there are new dispensary companies opening every year, I can save a fairly good amount on my cannabis products by utilizing these sales promotions. Although I tend to love cannabis flower products if I’m going to use weed on a daily basis, it’s also wonderful to try cannabis edibles, oils, and concentrate products. I still have a relatively sizable bag of cannabis candy products from when a new dispensary opened down the road from my condo a few weeks ago. Periodically I like to end my day with a nice bowl of cannabis flower buds and a few cannabis candies. I find that it’s a better way to end a stressful and hectic day of work than alcohol. I don’t have all of the lingering effects the next day either.
