If you’re lucky enough to live in a state or country where the use of marijuana for medicinal or recreational purposes is legal, where do you go and get some? It really depends on the laws governing use in your state. Medical marijuana can usually be purchased at a clinic, dispensary or a coop. While all of these have slightly different setups here are some things to look for in a good marijuana dispensary.
What is Close By?
You can start of by looking for a dispensary that is close by, especially if you don’t have the means to travel. You can start by doing a quick Google search. Who would have thought the day would come where you could just search on Google to find marijuana. Google maps will provide you with maps, locations and directions to the closest dispensary to you.
Once you have a couple of dispensaries it’s time to look a little deeper, you can Google each of them by name and find a couple of reviews. You can also just do a generic search by typing in things like “Washington dispensary reviews” or “best marijuana dispensary in Washington”. There you can find a list of reviews by others just like you looking for a good dispensary. You can narrow the search down to just a couple of places that should serve your purpose.
Time to Make a Visit
Now that you have narrowed down your search to a couple of highly rated dispensaries it’s time to pay them a quick visit. Reviews are great but checking them out in person is really the best way to find a dispensary that works for you. You need to also understand that medical or recreational marijuana is a fairly new industry and there isn’t much in the way of established standards. Each place may be very different from the last. You still want to find a place with a wide variety of strains and a knowledgeable staff. Here is a walk through of a dispensary so you have an idea.
After you have checked out a couple of places and see how they work, you probably notice a very big difference. Some dispensaries are extremely clinic and the whole experience is similar to a trip to the clinic. Other places are a whole lot friendlier and the staff is warm and welcoming. Both serve a purpose and it really depends on what you expect to get out of the trip. Aside from the atmosphere make sure that you can get the right type of pot for your condition and the staff can assist you if you haven’t been a regular smoker previously.
