What to Bring on Your First Visit to a Weed Shop

If you're like most people, you're probably wondering what to bring on your first visit to a weed shop. What are the rules? What's legal? And most importantly, what will make the experience smoother for you? Don't worry, we've got you covered. This article will discuss everything you need to know about what to bring on your first visit to a weed shop.

What to Bring on Your First Visit to a Weed Shop

Always Bring Your ID

The first and most important thing you need to bring on your first visit to a weed shop is your ID. In order to purchase any type of cannabis product, you must be 21 years of age or older. Most weed shops will have a sign posted at the entrance that says "21+ only," so if you're not of legal age, don't even bother trying to enter.

Your Medical Marijuana Card

There are some states that will only allow you to purchase cannabis if you have a medical marijuana card. Even if your state doesn't have this requirement, it's always a good idea to bring your card with you just in case. This will ensure that you're able to purchase the products you need without any issues.

Know What You Want (Or at Least Have an Idea)

The world of weed can be overwhelming, especially for first-time shoppers. There are dozens of strains, hundreds of products, and a seemingly endless array of options to choose from. It's important to have at least a general idea of what you're looking for before you walk into a weed shop. Do some research online, talk to friends, and ask the store employees for recommendations. The more you know about what you want, the easier it will be to find it.

Know That You May Need to Bring Cash

In addition to the cost of the weed itself, you may also need to bring cash for extras like tips, taxes, and fees. Most weed shops charge a small fee for credit card transactions, so if you're paying with plastic, be prepared to fork over a few extra dollars. You should also tip your budtender (the person who helps you make your purchase) if they provide good service. Lastly, don't forget that marijuana is still technically illegal in many states, so there may be additional taxes tacked on your purchase. Most weed shops won't accept debit or credit cards for these taxes, so come prepared with cash.

Bring A Bag Or Container To Hold Your Weed

This one is pretty self-explanatory: you'll need somewhere to put your weed once you've bought it. Most weed shops will provide small bags for customers, but if you're planning on buying a lot of weed, you might want to bring your own container. Just make sure it's smell-proof and big enough to hold all your goodies.

What Not To Bring Into A Weed Shop

Now that we've gone over what you SHOULD bring into a weed shop, let's talk about what you shouldn't bring. 

  • First and foremost, do not bring any weapons of any kind. This includes guns, knives, pepper spray, etc. Not only is it illegal to bring weapons into a weed shop, but it's also just plain common sense.

  • You should also avoid bringing outside food or drink into the weed shop. Most shops have their own snacks and drinks available for purchase, and they would prefer that you buy from them instead of bringing in your own stuff.

  • Lastly, don't bring anything illegal into the weed shop. This seems like a no-brainer, but you'd be surprised how many people try to sneak in contraband. If you're caught with illegal drugs or paraphernalia in a weed shop, you will be immediately escorted out and could face charges. Play it safe and just leave those things at home.

Now that you know what to bring with you on your first visit to a weed shop, it’s time to take the plunge!
