Legal Cannabis Purchasing Limits In Washington

Forms of cannabis outside of flower have evolved to fit the consumer market. With legalization and strict regulation from the government, there have been strict limits imposed. These limits impact the amount of cannabis that someone can have with them and/or purchase from a recreational store. These legal limits exist to regulate the market and deter people from selling weed for personal profit.

There are a few basic forms of cannabis that must be discussed. Each of these forms has a strict legal limit that comes with. First, it is important to understand the basic forms of cannabis before the limits are introduced. Following these limits is important because they allow our market in Washington to continue to grow.

Flower: This is the most common form of cannabis you are going to find. Before the product has been extracted to turn into oil, or combined with butter or cooking oil to create edibles. Adults, who are over 21, are able to purchase up to one ounce of 28 grams of flower. Cannabis flower comes in a variety of weights from grams to full ounces. You can mix and match as much as you want, but be sure to stay at or below that 28-gram limit.

Oil: More potent than flower, this highly concentrated form of THC is extracted using butane or other extraction methods. Similar to flower there are limits on the amount of oil an adult is able to purchase at one time. In Washington, adults are limited to purchasing 7 grams of oil at one time. Concentrates typically come in gram packages, occasionally you’ll find half grams. You could buy 7 different grams of concentrates and have hit your legal limit for the day.

Edibles: There is a maximum of 16 ounces of edibles in solid form that an adult can purchase at one time. This can be one individual serving, which is highly unlikely, or it can be divided among multiple servings. Washington State has a 10mg per serving limit on edibles. However, you are able to buy packages with up to 100mg of total THC. Meaning, your edibles will be broken up into 10 servings of 10mg each. Edibles are not always packed in singles or tens, but there is a 10mg per serving limit. This is where companies have found methods to deliver more THC to their consumers by breaking up large edibles into 10mg servings. I wouldn’t recommend it, but you could eat 100mg of cannabis from a package of 10 edibles.

Cannabis also comes in a liquid form, specifically tinctures, and drinks. An adult consumer is able to purchase 72 ounces of cannabis-infused liquid.

What’s Not Allowed?

There are products that are not able to be infused with cannabis. The packaging also cannot appeal to children. You wouldn’t want your kid eating a heavily medicated package of skittles, would you? Fruit and juices are not allowed to be infused. This helps prevent children from eating things that they are not meant to eat. Dried meats, dairy products, and any pie that contains egg cannot be loaded with weed according to the Canna Law Group. Some of these laws may seem to be a little strange or strict, but compromises had to be made in order for I-502 to be successful in Washington.

Washington’s Edibles

There are numerous companies in Washington meeting the edible needs of cannabis consumers. Even with strict regulations on what can and cannot be sold, there is a wide variety of products available. Recently a THC infused sriracha sauce hit the market. Ciders, waters, brownies, gummies, and mints are also available. Essentially you are not limited by many dietary restrictions or by your taste buds.

If you’re a registered medical cannabis patient, the limits are three ounces of usable cannabis flower, forty-eight ounces of cannabis-infused edibles in solid form, two hundred sixteen ounces of cannabis drinkables, and twenty-one grams of cannabis concentrates, per the Washington State Department of Health.

Our products have intoxicating effects and may be habit-forming. Marijuana can impair concentration, coordination, and judgment. Do not operate a vehicle or machinery under the influence of this drug. There may be health risks associated with consumption of these products. For use only by adults twenty-one and older. Keep out of the reach of children.

Buying Dabs & Flower Cannabis at Satori – Fremont

Fremont has one of the best nightlife scenes in all of Seattle. Thousands of people frequent the area’s bars and venues for shows and other local entertainment. With so many tourists visiting the city’s 50+ pot shops, many shops have gotten lazy and their budtenders are focusing on selling cannabis that only has the “highest THC”.

Fremont doesn’t usually have many tourists besides those visiting the troll. When we’ve been in the area, we’ve been able to avoid those kinds of headaches thanks to the service provided by Have a Heart.

Now, Satori has taken over!

Although THC is a huge part of the cannabis purchasing equation, there is much more you should be looking for than just high percentages. When you’re in Washington or specifically in Fremont, THC doesn’t matter as much due to the inconsistencies of the testing at the state-certified labs. The labs still can’t seem to get things right which is why we spend so much time sharing updates with you here on the blog and also on our social media.

One of the first things you should be looking for at Satori – Fremont is who the actual experts are. You’ve got to find budtenders you can trust. Luckily, Satori has a solid medical marijuana background and each of their employees have extensive experience guiding consumers through the world of cannabis.

Find Budtenders You Trust

There really is no excuse for poor budtenders anymore. Satori has yet to show us a single bad experience and we’re excited to add their store into our partner network. People do have bad days sometimes but not really at Satori. They keep it chill, help you with some education, and always plug you with a solid product. It doesn’t hurt to ask for the most experienced budtender or to just simply ask for GreenRush. 😉

GreenRush Strains For Cinco De Mayo

It can be hard to identify good budtenders so we’ll help you cut through the fat. You’re going to need to be ok with asking some questions and using cannabis common sense. If a budtender can only describe weed as “fire” or “dank”, you might want to take what they say with a grain of salt. Would your waiter at a restaurant describe food that way?

Find someone who can communicate with you and other people. They need to be able to talk to you in a way that is professional and accurate. Being able to articulate strain knowledge in a digestible manner is huge and many stores overlook this valuable asset. Thankfully we can count on Satori to connect the dots for consumers.

Terpenes and THC both matter. When you’re talking with a budtender, ask them to tell you about flavor profiles, terpenes, and what genetics make up the strains you like. These types of questions will help you learn about what you like, identify what you don’t, and can help you increase the chance of having a better experience. You can’t look at the product outside of packaging in Washington, so budtenders are extra important to relay product information. Finding someone who knows all of this stuff is tricky. It takes time, patience, and you’ve got to be willing to be taught something new.

Terpenes > THC Numbers

Although THC packs the psychoactive effects, terpenes and THC combined dictates the specific effects strain by strain. Terpenes produce the aromas we smell and taste with cannabis. Citrus aromas come from terpenes myrcene and limonene. Hazes have terpinolene. Pine aromas come from pinene. Some of these terpenes help more THC cross the blood-brain barrier, which is why a strain can be more effective, despite having low THC numbers. If you find out what terpenes were present in the weed you like, you can shop specifically for that with other brands and strains.

Cannabis Brand Knowledge

There are over a thousand cannabis farms, labs, brands, and other businesses in Washington. Many of these companies offer more than one strain or product so it’s important to be up to date on each one. The majority of products can be found online via brand websites or social media. Satori doesn’t have digital assets created for their Fremont store but their other stores have menus that are probably similar to the one in Seattle. Satori utilizes their social media platforms to educate consumers on new products, current offerings, deals, plus much more.

Level Up Your Experience!

The overwhelming majority of people still don’t know a damn thing about cannabis. THC matters. Terpenes matter. Moisture, hand-trimming, and trichomes all matter! Until you know more about your cannabis and begin experiencing the different types of flavors and highs, you can really only learn so much. Go visit Satori, locate a budtender you vibe with, and take a leap of faith.

GreenRush Halloween Strains That Will Scare The Senses

Be A Shallow Shopper

Not all cannabis is equal. In Washington state, the way certain brands produce and process cannabis can be the difference between sitting on a shelf for a year or selling out in a single day. If the weed looks good and you can smell it through the bag or through the glass, buy it. When it comes to GreenRush, there really is no question.

If the cannabis buds are covered in trichomes or if the flowers feel or sound dense when you shake the container,  buy it. Even if the cannabis ends up being a poor smoke, you’ll at least know more about what you’re going for. Good looking weed with lower THC numbers is generally always a better situation than higher THC cannabis that is cheaper, more dry, and outdoor.

Adults 21 and over can purchase up to one ounce of usable cannabis flower, 16 ounces of cannabis-infused edibles in solid form, 72 ounces of cannabis drinkables, and 7 grams of cannabis concentrates.

If you’re a registered medical cannabis patient, the limits are:

Three ounces of usable cannabis flower, forty-eight ounces of cannabis-infused edibles in solid form, two hundred sixteen ounces of cannabis drinkables, and twenty-one grams of cannabis concentrates, per the Washington State Department of Health.

Things to Know About Consuming Cannabis in Washington State

Many first-time smokers and tourists are looking to indulge in a culture that is still illegal throughout most of the world. Seattle and Washington in particular, has become its own cannabis hotspot in the Pacific Northwest.

The Green Rush team wants you to have a fun, safe, and memorable cannabis experience when consuming marijuana in Washington which is why we’ve created a guide for marijuana users.

Things To Know When Using Cannabis In Washington:

Where Can I Buy Cannabis? Marijuana can only be sold at state-licensed retail stores. A Valid State ID or Passport is required to enter the store and most are cash only, so bring it with you or use the ATM provided by the store.

Green Rush Extracts

Public Use: It’s Illegal to consume cannabis in public, however, a parking ticket in Seattle is 54$ and a smoking in public ticket is 27$. If you find a chill spot away from children, we think you will be fine.

Different Forms That Cannabis Comes In

Edible Products: We suggest you take it slow when eating cannabis, especially if you’re a first time user. Edibles are a completely different high than smoking weed. It’s digested through your liver, so the high takes much longer to kick in. Edibles can take between 5 minutes and 2 hours for them to fully kick in, so be patient and start small. Something with 5 mg is ideal because you can always increase the dose, but not reverse how much you eat.

Concentrates: Oils and extracts come in a variety of forms; oils, hashes, waxes, keef and shatter. This form of smoking is much more potent than any other way you can smoke. It’s made by extracting THC and other properties from the cannabis plant.

Seattle Concentrates

Vaporizers: Vaping could be the future of smoking. By using a concentrate and heating it up, but not burning it, users are able to smoke in a discrete way that allows for a clean high. CO2 cartridges are the most convenient way to use a vape pen. Feel free to ask your local budtender about what strain will work best for you.
