 Tips for shopping from a Cannabis Dispensary

What matters to you as a customer?

First, consider what is innately important to you as a customer. Is it price, convenience, potency, cleanliness, testing data – the list goes on. Only you know what matters to you as a consumer. What’s important to understand is that every option is available to you in the dispensary.

Even in legal markets there are extreme variations in price ($20-$55+ an eighth), quality, cultivation practices, etc. This is your opportunity to vote with your dollar, so please consider the overall quality of the dispensary you choose to patron. There are several websites and apps that host user generated dispensary reviews.

“What are you looking for?”

Your budtender will open with this line 9 out of 10 times because budtenders expect you to know already – the same way bartenders kind of assume you know what you like to drink. Your budtender knows the products on the shelf, but they are not mind readers, doctors or therapists; they need your guidance to recommend a good match. The more insight you can give on the experience you desire, the better they can pair you with the perfect product.

When you arrive at the Cleveland Marijuana Dispensary, you will get paired up with a budtender – this person is responsible for walking you through the entire purchasing process, so don’t be shy! After introducing themselves, the first thing they will do is ask you what you’re looking for. Well, this is a tough question when you’re staring at 20+ varieties of flower, concentrates, and edibles.

Rather than freezing up when you get to the dispensary counter for the first time, take a moment to think through a few of the following questions.

How do you usually consume?

Smoking cannabis out of a pipe or bong is no longer the only option. Dispensaries carry cannabis products that come in a variety of forms; flower, concentrates, edibles, tinctures, drinks, pills, vaporizer pens, suppositories, topical ointments – even medicated bath bombs.

Some of these consumption methods will get you ‘high’ while others are non-psychoactive (but still therapeutic). If you know you like or don’t like a certain method, let your budtender know. If you’re curious about a new product, don’t hesitate to ask!

Do you want to get ‘high’ in the traditional sense?

Some types of cannabis get you really high, some don’t get you high at all, and others are somewhere in the middle. If it’s your first time consuming in a while, it may be best to let your budtender know so you can start slow. Many older people find that strains containing CBD help them ease back into consuming again. Alternatively, if you’re an experienced user, don’t be afraid to tell your budtender you are looking for a potent high-THC strain.

How do you want to feel?

The answer to this question will vary greatly based on whether you are looking to indulge recreationally for the first time or you are consuming to treat a specific medical condition. You don’t have to know the silly strain names, just how you want to feel.

Let the budtender know whether you want to feel energetic and focused, relaxed and sleepy, or something in between. As the options are explained to you, take note as to whether you’re being shown an indica, sativa, or a hybrid product.
