Flowers differ

Remember, growers aren’t all the same. While many are now growing hydroponically, there are still some using the traditional outdoor method. And a particular strain at one dispensary might be more enjoyable than the same strain at another dispensary.

Fortunately, there’s a great way to try out different dispensaries without breaking the bank. Many dispensaries offer daily, weekly and monthly deals on certain quantities and strains.

Becoming a member at your favorite dispensary can also save you some major cash — somewhere around 10% or more.

But dispensaries quickly run out of the most popular strains. Give your local dispensary a call, or email, to see if they have a particular strain in stock before you make the trip.

Shopping for CBD

If you’re in the market for straight CBD, there are now plenty of places online that will ship it straight to your doorstep — no need to visit a dispensary.

One of our favorite stores is CBDistillery. It offers a wide variety of CBD products, from tinctures to salve.

Of course, if you’re looking to do some comparison shopping, here are some of the safest places to purchase CBD online.
