The laws regarding cannabis in the USA are changing slowly but surely, but it is important that you know the specific law in your home state. In California, for example, it is now legal to possess cannabis for personal use, but there are a number of rules that you must comply with.
Before we go on to talk about how to choose the best place to buy your weed, here are a few of the points you should be aware of:
In most legal states you can possess up to 28.5g (around an ounce) of cannabis flower, and a smaller amount of concentrated cannabis
It is illegal to sell it to others
You must be over 21 years of age
You cannot consume it in public
Basically, you can buy and have cannabis, but must not enjoy it in public – and make note that this includes both smoking and vaping.
So, where should you go to buy your cannabis? The law requires all shops or dispensaries selling cannabis to be licensed, so the first thing you need to ensure is that your seller is in fact operating legally. This will also help guarantee the quality of the product you are purchasing.
Choosing a Supplier
Choosing the best San Diego weed dispensaries or those in any other cities and states where the substance is legal and orders can be placed online means looking for a seller you can trust. As we have already said, they need to be licensed by the state. For many people, the convenience of buying weed online is a major draw, and there are many suppliers who operate online shops in some legal states.
One thing you should look for is a guarantee of quality. A good supplier will be only too happy to tell you where the plant was grown, and will offer you a variety of different strains. You want to be able to order securely, too, and pay without fear of your personal information being stolen or cloned.
Then there’s the major consideration – the price of your cannabis. We recommend that you shop around for the best deals as, since legalization, there is a lot of competition in a crowded market. You might find quite notable price differences between the various suppliers. Look for offers on postage costs, too, as some may charge while others don’t.
In the first instance, you might want to try a few suppliers so that you can then check out their product and stick with the one(s) you enjoy best. Quality can vary where natural products like cannabis are involved.
Enjoy Your Cannabis
Now that you can legally enjoy cannabis in your own home – or perhaps at a private party or other occasions – you can get the benefits whenever you wish. As long as you keep within the law and follow the rules we mentioned above you will be fine.
Be aware also that it is illegal to drive under the influence of cannabis, and you cannot smoke it on federal land such as national parks and beaches. Also, it is against the law for you to transport cannabis across state lines.
One point we thought it wise to make is that you should not confuse recreational cannabis with cannabis that is high in CBD and intended for medical use. The latter is most often made from the hemp plant and, while effective as a pain reliever and permitted for many patients nationwide, it may not provide you with the effect you want if you are a recreational cannabis user.
Check out some of the weed suppliers online and give two or three a try, and you’ll soon find one that you trust.
