Posted By on November 27, 2017

If you are heading to a dispensary for the first time, you could be a bit unsure of what to expect. Even though you might be excited about buying marijuana from a dispensary, you could need a little bit of guidance during the process. Luckily, this is something that your budtender — who is there to help you with the purchase of your marijuana — can help you with. These are a few questions that you can ask your budtender so that you can help ensure that you are happy with your experience.

1. Are there any specials available?

First of all, even though a lot of people do not realize it, many dispensaries have specials. You might be able to get a lower price on bud, edibles, pre-rolls or other products, so make sure that you ask. Not only can this be a good way to get a good deal, but it can also help encourage you to buy new products that you might not otherwise try.

2. Are there any changes to local marijuana laws that I should know about?

Marijuana laws are always changing. It’s up to you as the consumer to be aware of these laws and to make sure that you abide by them. Luckily, your budtender should be up-to-date on all of the local and state marijuana laws and should be able to clue you in.

3. Do you have any new products?

If you are looking to try something new and exciting or if you would like to make sure that you are getting the freshest bud, it can be a good idea to ask the budtender about any new products that the dispensary might have stocked. Your budtender is sure to be excited to show you any new products that he or she thinks that you might like.

4. Is this is a sativa or an indica?

Different types of marijuana can provide you with totally different experiences. Indicas are supposed to help you relax, while sativas are supposed to make you feel a bit more alert. You can ask your budtender about the particular strain that you are buying so that you can get an idea of the type of effect that you can expect.

5. How strong is this marijuana?

Your budtender can tell you about the potency of the marijuana strains that you are interested in. For beginners, you may want to choose a marijuana strain that isn’t too strong.

6. Do you have any suggestions?

If you are looking for suggestions about the best way to smoke or otherwise use the marijuana that you are buying, your budtender is sure to give you some helpful tips.

As you can see, there are a few questions that you will want to ask your budtender when buying marijuana from a dispensary. Luckily, this is what your budtender is there for, so he or she should be more than happy to answer your questions.
