With the legalization of marijuana in most states, there has been an increase in marijuana dispensaries across the country. However, marijuana dispensaries still remain a new concept to many cannabis consumers, especially those that prefer buying from dealers.
If you’re thinking about visiting a marijuana dispensary for the first-time, here are four things you need to know.
- You must be 21 and older
To buy cannabis from a marijuana dispensary, you must be 21 years old and provide a valid ID. There are no exceptions to this rule, although there some guidelines regarding minors and medical marijuana consumption. You may also need to provide your driver’s license, so have it with you before visiting a dispensary.
- Most marijuana dispensaries accept cash-only
Since marijuana is still illegal at the federal level, many banks don’t partake in the cannabis trade to avoid being charged with money laundering. Therefore, carry cash with you when visiting a marijuana dispensary.
You can also find out what forms of payment your chosen dispensary takes before your visit.
- Some dispensaries can allow you to examine buds before buying
If you’re a new cannabis user, it’s wise to find a marijuana dispensary that allows you to smell or examine their buds before buying as some don’t. This ensures you can try out different strains to find what you prefer.
- You can ask questions at your dispensary
As a first-time dispensary user, it’s normal to have questions and concerns on different cannabis products and strains. Budtenders at dispensaries are always happy to answer your questions and provide you with all the information you need before making a purchase.
