Recreational cannabis dispensaries have become increasingly popular over the years. Consuming marijuana isn’t very complicated, but there are a few things you should consider so that your first trip to the dispensary is much smoother and easier to navigate. Here are three shopping tips to consider when shopping for recreational marijuana in Big Rapids.
1. Your Preferred Method of Consumption
Cannabis can be enjoyed in a multitude of ways. Most people prefer to smoke it naturally, while others have a preference for vape pens or bongs. You can also consume it through homemade baked goods known as edibles or even packaged candies where each candy holds a certain percentage of THC. Dabbing, cannabis capsules, and tinctures are also popular consumption methods. If you already have an idea of what you are most comfortable with, go for that option, but remain open-minded, as you never know what you’ll end up preferring later on.
2. Which Strain Is Best?
You can never truly know what strain of marijuana is best until you try it, but you can get a general idea of how the effects will unfold once you do. Sativa dominant products are most likely going to give you a stimulating and energetic feel that inspires you to get up and be productive. Indica dominant products will do the opposite, most likely making you want to relax and slow things down a bit. Indica dominant products may be best for those with anxiety issues, while Sativa can be great for those with depression.
3. How Much Is Enough?
If you go to a physical store near you for recreational marijuana in Big Rapids, the employees, also known as ‘budtenders’ can help you navigate your way through the products and figure out what amount is going to be best for you. Of course, if you’re just starting, you’d probably want to try a little sample of each strain. But if you know what you want and you know the amount you’re going to need each day or week, measure it out to your liking.
