Always at the forefront of the cannabis movement as well as culture, my state passed legislation legalizing adult use marijuana in 2016.
Anyone over the age of 21 can shop at a local recreational dispensary with valid identification. This long-time acceptance combined with the perfect weather for growing cannabis has led to a immense diversity as well as innovation of grow techniques, cross-breeding as well as strains, but living there I have straight-forward access to a number of dispensaries. They all offer the full variety of consumption methods, yet each one carries unusual brands. A few include fields and/or purplehouses, allowing them to control their products from seed to sale. One of the dispensaries features an on-site bakery where they create the most delicious edibles. Several of the shops offer vape lounges as well as dab bars where I prefer spending time. It is appealing to have such a immense selection of products available. I occasionally shop strictly with recreational joy in mind. I focus on dried flower, pre-rolls as well as vapes with a higher percentage of THC for quick onset of strong effects. I also consume cannabis for its curative properties. I purchase tinctures, topicals as well as edibles that target inflammation, pain, migraines or insomnia. I care about the nearly limitless potential as well as benefits of plant-based medicine. There are no worries over the harmful side-effects neighbord with synthetic alternatives. I am hoping that eventually, cannabis will be as accepted as well as available as alcohol or cigarettes. While my state continues to lead the way, it would be helpful if the rest of the country would catch up as well as supply better as well as safer medicinal options to all those in need.
