5 Common Misconceptions About First Visit to a Weed Shop

When people think about their first time visiting a weed shop, they often have a lot of questions. What should I expect? Will it be weird? Is it going to be like a dispensary? This article will dispel 5 common misconceptions about first visits to weed shops. Keep reading to learn more!

5 Common Misconceptions About First Visit to a Weed Shop

1. Misconception: Smoking Is The Only Way To Consume Cannabis

This is one of the most common misconceptions about weed shops! While smoking may be the most popular method of consuming cannabis, it's certainly not the only way. Edibles, tinctures, topicals, and more are all available at most weed shops. So if smoking isn't your thing, don't worry - there are plenty of other options.

2. Misconception: You Need A Medical Card To Visit A Weed Shop

In most states, you do not need a medical card to visit a weed shop. However, there are a few states where this is still the case. Be sure to check your local laws before visiting a weed shop. Even in states where you don't need a medical card, you will likely need to be at least 21 years of age. You must present a government-issued ID at the door in order to be let in.

3. Misconception: Weed Shops Are Only For People Who Want To Get High

While many people visit weed shops for the sole purpose of getting high, that's not all they're good for. Weed shops also sell a variety of cannabis-infused products, like edibles and topicals. These products can provide relief from pain, anxiety, and other ailments - without the psychoactive effects of THC. So whether you're looking to get high or just want some relief, a weed shop is a great place to start.

4. Misconception: All Weed Shops Are The Same

Just like any other type of store, no two weed shops are exactly alike. Some may be more focused on medical cannabis, while others may be geared toward recreational users. And of course, each shop will have its own unique atmosphere and selection of products. So if you're not sure which shop to visit, it's worth checking out a few before settling on one.

5. Misconception: You Have To Know A Lot About Cannabis To Visit A Weed Shop

Nope! While it's helpful to know what you're looking for before visiting a weed shop, the staff is always there to help. They can answer any questions you have about the products and help you find what you're looking for. So even if you're a cannabis novice, don't be afraid to stop by your local weed shop.
