I shop at a cannabis dispensary in Beverly Hills, California.
Because weed is legal in California, anyone over the age of 21 is allowed to shop.
I enjoy the recreational effects of marijuana as well as the curative properties. Over the last couple of years, I’ve experimented with different consumption methods. I began with smokable flower because it is traditional and quite simple. I was able to buy pre-rolled joints and blunts in a variety of strains and potency for fast-acting effects. I moved onto vapes, which is simply a modern method of smoking. It avoids combustion which minimizes the chance of carcinogens and provides a higher concentration of cannabinoids and terpenes. It can be helpful to eliminate odors, smoke and ash. With vapes becoming so popular, there are always new strains available on the market. I have seen that tinctures are a great option to bring along on various activities. The compact package fits easily into a purse or pocket and includes a handy dropper. The dropper allows for precise dosing. I can place a dose under my tongue for sublingual absorption and rapid effects. I can also add tinctures to different foods or beverages for the delayed sensations of edibles. Tinctures have less calories than edibles and when stored properly, offer an especially long shelf-life. The dispensary carries an extensive menu of very tasty edibles. They sell gummies, candies, chocolates, cookies and beverages in a wide variety of flavors. I have not yet explored concentrates. The high THC percentages make them a bit intimidating. The dispensary features a dab bar where I can rent equipment and get the assistance of a knowledgeable budtender.
