I was super enthusiastic when recreational cannabis was legalized in our state; It seemed to take a very long time for dispensaries to open their doors for business.
I showed up the first week after the grand opening with no idea what to expect; The size of the dispensary and selection of products was a bit overwhelming. I’d heard of cannabis brownies and gummies, even though I only had firsthand knowledge of smoking dried flower. I had no idea of the several consumption methods on the marketâ€¦ Just the selection of dried flower included several dozen strains of indicas, hybrids and sativas. They also carry pre-rolled joints, blunts and cannagars in singles, packs, infused and non-infused varieties. I was delighted to discover that I can buy the same top-shelf, full buds already ground, rolled and ready to smoke. The pre-rolls give a consistent smoke every time and the chance to try out modern strains without spending a lot. The selection of vapes is severely expansive, covering disposable and refillable carts in a variety of potency and flavors. There are even full-spectrum CBD vape pens. They are especially portable, discrete and simple. It’s as easy as pushing a button and inhaling. The menu of edibles is expansive, offering traditional brownies and gummies as well as peanut butter cups, beverages, cookies, mints, capsules and even ice cream. I can shop lotions, balms, sprays, roll-ons, bath bombs and all sorts of topicals. I was especially interested in the tinctures. I prefer the compact packaging, the enclosed dropper and precision of sublingual dosing. Tinctures don’t create any smells or require any extra gear, then although they are more complicated and far more potent, the array of concentrates are exciting as well.
