A Thorough Guide To Choosing The Right Marijuana (Part 1)

We’re almost two years into the world of legal cannabis and the world of marijuana is still just as confusing as ever. There are an endless amount of products and strains, plus, how many shops can they really pack into Seattle?

When you visit a legal shop, we recommend selecting one of our partners. All recreational weed retailers have many products on the shelves and oftentimes the number of options overwhelms new cannabis users. Smoking, vaping, pills, and eating or drinking infused products are just a few of the popularized consumption methods in Washington state.

Regardless of how you consume cannabis, there are three industry terms (popularized by Leafly.com) that many people use to identify each type. Sativa (S), Indica (I), and Hybrid (H). In order to choose the marijuana experience that is best suited for you, it’s important to understand each classification and try to remember the flavors that you enjoy.

Each of the different types of cannabis are known to produce specific effects depending on the strain. Some can give you bursts of creative energy, induce anxiety, or help with focus, while others can relax you, sedate you, or aid with appetite loss.

Now that we know about the different types and kinds of effects, it is important the user asks themselves how they want to feel after having consumed the marijuana. One of the best ways someone can identify a product that is right for them is by them communicating their needs or wants with the shop’s staff.

Choosing The Right Marijuana: Terpenes

A good place to start is by asking yourself if you want energy or if you want to feel sleepy. The next question could maybe be about the fact you need help managing anxiety or finding a way to increase your appetite. Depending on what you want to do, a really good budtender can almost always find something that has been known to help. A good example is that many people don’t actually enjoy smoking. Communicating a desire to stay away from smoking is actually very helpful and I always suggest taking the time to focus on the creation of a strong relationship with your budtender. That way they can take care of you. Once your relationship with them is strong and your budtender can begin to identify what kind of high you’re looking to experience, they can dial in the right terpenes and flavor profiles to have you flying high all day and night. This little extra knowledge could help you to consistently smoke better or to even teach others how to use marijuana in an effective way.

Choosing The Right Marijuana: Edibles (Myths)

America has an endless supply of potent cannabis flower, delicious infused candies, cookies, chocolates, and beverages, and at this point, we all know that finding something tasty isn’t that difficult. Sharing stories with your budtender about what products you’ve tried and whether or not they were good or bad, is a huge part of the learning process with cannabis. For those of you who haven’t tried a cannabis-infused edible or drink, we recommend you visit one of our reputable retail partners and letting the staff know it’s your first time.
