Cannabis dispensaries are the only place in the USA that marijuana products can be purchased legally.
The products offered at a cannabis dispensary will vary in style and potency but usually always include:
· Cannabis flower
· CBD Products
· Shatter & Wax
If you haven’t had a chance to visit a dispensary but want to be prepared when you do, consider the following guide on what to expect on your first visit.
To purchase cannabis for recreational use, a consumer must be over the age of 21. Medical patients who use cannabis may be younger than 21 but need a medical card to prove their eligibility. Either way, you will need valid identification to verify your age and a medical card to confirm your eligibility to purchase.
Additionally, if you do not have a medical card, you will only be able to purchase at a dispensary licensed for recreational sales. Contact your dispensary to find out who type of cannabis users they can sell products to.
Shopping at a cannabis dispensary is a lot like shopping at a jewelry store. The products are usually behind glass cases and feature essential information about the potency, terpene level, and quality control testing that has been performed.
While it’s perfectly okay to smell products or examine them under a microscope, it is illegal to test or consume cannabis products onsite. However, more fancy stores will often have a particular area in the dispensary for trying out your products after purchase.
Dispensaries usually only take cash, so it’s good to have some on you to avoid any embarrassment at the register. Furthermore, if you don’t have a medical cannabis card, you are often limited to purchasing a total of 1 ounce of cannabis on your visit, as is the case at Magnolia Road Cannabis Co.
