Finding the best option for your medical marijuana needs can be difficult with so many distributors to choose from. The following is a brief overview of the most important things to look for when choosing a dispensary or primary care center. Each individual will be seeking different aspects when it comes to the shopping experience or their marijuana so you must decide which factors are the most important to you. These factors are listed for your consideration, in no particular order.
The quality of the cannabis is one of the most important factors to consider. Whether you are using it for the medicinal or the recreational effects, you are using it for the effect. The effect that you receive will be related directly to the quality of the marijuana. It is essential that the distributor you choose to buy from has the buds that are equal to the quality you expect.
Price is nearly as important as the quality is. For some people, it is the most important quality. While prices will vary from one state to the next, it is important to remember that you do not have to settle on cheap swag. Do not choose a dispensary that is overcharging for the quality that you can find elsewhere for less. Keep in mind that in some areas dispensaries buy from each other and then sell the same product at a lower price than where they bought it from. Shop around for the best pricing.
It might be somewhat easy to find excellent quality at great prices, but selection is another story. Many dispensaries just lack in the area of choices. One of the most fun reasons to smoke is to experience the different strains. If you smoke one strain for too long you will build up a tolerance to it, making selection another important aspect when you are choosing your dispensary. A dispensary with 25 or more strains to choose from is a distributor with a large selection. Many of these distributors will operate on a pricing system that is tiered. By taking some time you can check out as many strains as possible and compare the lower priced strains with some of the top shelf buds until you find one that is lower in price that matches the quality you are seeking.
The location of the dispensary is also essential. You do not want to have to drive a ridiculous distance to pick up your marijuana, although the distributor closest to your house may not be the best option either. When you have the opportunity, stop in at the dispensaries as you pass by. Even if you are not prepared to buy you can always check them out and let them know you are just browsing at the moment. Unless you stop in you will not know if it is worth going back or not.
The final factor to consider is the customer service experience. The bud tender should be customer oriented, know the various strains that are available and keep stems out of your bag. Good customer service includes getting to know you, your name, preferences and your budget.
