Choosing a dispensary
Not all flowers and cannabis products are created equal. Growers have different methods. A particular strain or product at one dispensary might be more enjoyable than the same strain at another dispensary.
Fortunately, there’s a great way to try out different products without breaking the bank. Many dispensaries offer daily, weekly and monthly deals on certain quantities and strains.
And don’t forget that being a member at your favorite dispensary can save you some major cash on your favorite strains over the long-haul — somewhere around 10%.
Keep in mind that 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.
