5 Things We Learned From our First Visit to a Weed Shop

It's no secret that marijuana is becoming more and more mainstream. In fact, in some states, it is now legal to purchase weed from a licensed dispensary. We decided to check out one of these dispensaries for ourselves and learn what all the fuss is about. Here are 5 things we learned from our first visit to a weed shop!

5 Things We Learned From our First Visit to a Weed Shop

1. Use With A Purpose.

Weed is not just for getting high anymore. In fact, many people use it for medicinal purposes. There are now strains of weed that are specifically bred to treat different conditions. For example, there are strains that can help with anxiety or pain relief. There are also weed-infused products like oils and edibles.


2. It Is Essential To Know The Serving Size For Edibles.

If you are new to edibles, it is very important to start with a low serving size. Edibles can take up to two hours to kick in, so it is easy to accidentally overdo it. The last thing you want is to be uncomfortably high for the rest of the day! It is better to check with the dispensary staff or do some research online before purchasing an edible.


3. Do Not Mix Marijuana With Alcohol Or Other Drugs.

Marijuana can intensify the effects of other drugs. For example, if you drink alcohol while smoking weed, you will feel the effects of both substances more intensely. It is important to be aware of how marijuana will affect you before mixing it with other substances. Nobody can predict the effect it will have on you, so always start with caution.


4. Wait Before Engaging In Activities That May Put You At A Higher Risk.

Marijuana can affect your coordination and judgment. For this reason, prior to partaking in higher-risk activities like driving, skiing, or swimming, it is advised to wait at least 3-6 hours after vaping or smoking and 6-8 hours after eating edibles. Remember that these timings can change based on your usage and tolerance. You might occasionally have to wait longer than the suggested times.


5. Store Marijuana Goods In A Secure Place.

If you have children or pets, it is important to store your marijuana products in a safe place. Marijuana edibles can look like regular candy, so it is essential to keep them out of reach of little ones. You should also keep your weed away from pets. Some animals are attracted to the smell of marijuana and could accidentally ingest something that is harmful to them.


Marijuana is becoming more mainstream, but there are still some things to be aware of before partaking. We hope this article has been helpful in educating you on some of the basics!
