How should pot consumers go about in buying weed from cannabis dispensaries in Canada and the United States?
As Canadian government has legalized cannabis oils (topical and ingestion), dried buds or flowers, and seedlings. Growers and producers will receive licenses from federal authorities. Meanwhile, provincial and territorial liquor entities will function as central distributors. Saskatchewan Province goes one step further by selling directly to commercial retailers.
For medical pot, patients must bring with them official documentation on their first appointment at the clinic or dispensary. This document must describe medical condition and requirements. Medical papers that warrant an appointment include the physician’s referral letter, doctor’s notes, prescription bottle, X-Ray or MRI reports, accident report, and summary of hospital discharge. Tourists cannot purchase marijuana from Canada and bring it to the United States.
In states where medical and adult weed are allowed, cannabis dispensaries will require customers (21 years old and above) to bring valid identification. This can be the driver’s license or legitimate state ID. The same process applies to legal recreational pot.
Learn the fundamentals of cannabis. Customers have one or two alternatives as first-time consumer in cannabis dispensaries. Trust budtenders to make a positive recommendation, or, conduct some research to find out the best products for your liking. Experts say the second option is more advisable.
Look for the dispensary that will cater to your needs. Shops have different pricing structures, specialties, and strains. If possible, browse through the clinic website and customer reviews.
Bring cash and IDs (passports of driver’s licenses). If you are not a holder of medical marijuana (MMID or cannabis) cards, pass through the recreational entrance. This Identification Card is given to patients who enter cannabis clubs or medical dispensaries. It also permits patients to grow pot at home and request for delivery services.
On the average, 1/8 of marijuana flower costs around $40. You can purchase a pre-rolled joint for $10. Check state laws carefully before visiting a dispensary. Research different strains to know the effect you want. Strain names include Indica, Sativa, or Hybrid.
Ensure you have the right equipment for consuming oils, waxes, or flowers. Do not hesitate to ask questions from budtenders, they are the best personnel for relevant information.
