When our state was unveiling their recreational cannabis program, I thought that all of us would get a good selection of dispensaries in every city.
Not only were the stores limited in quantity at first, however the quality across the board has been excruciating since day one.
I remember how poor the marijuana flower was before there was more competition in the state. It was full of too many stems, seeds, & dried fan leaves that should be split & removed before the flower buds are packaged & sold. I couldn’t believe that this supplier was trying to charge high prices for this abysmal marijuana flower. But when I visited a bizarre dispensary down the road, the quality wasn’t different—the cannabis edibles were weak & stale, the tinctures didn’t seem to work, & the marijuana oils had low THC percentages. Thankfully there’s a brand new recreational cannabis store that just opened near me. It’s a multiple hour drive in our automobile & they constantly have a wonderful selection of numerous cannabis products. I’m impressed by the quality of their marijuana flower, which is constantly fresh & strong. I’d rather purchase cannabis products that are a little stronger, because that way I can use less cannabis when I medicate. When I’m getting inhalation products like flower buds, vape cartridges, & concentrates, it’s better to have a product that’s strong & only requires one or multiple hits to get the necessary dosage. Some people believe that restricting THC gratified is a wonderful thing at a legislative level, however it will only require cannabis users to waste more money & use more cannabis in the process.
