Thanks to the legalization of my most enjoyed plant, finding weed to smoke is not the impossible chore it used to be. Back in university, my friends would drive for hours just to buy a few grams of ditch weed, because that was all the people I was with and I could get. It makes complete sense that the people I was with and I would try to grow our own plants. It turns out that despite being called “weed” cannabis is a fairly fussy plant, & growing crops that are ready to smoke is a fairly arduous process. I am so delighted for the advent of new cannabis dispensaries, because I never wish to try to grow my own weed again in the future! Much to my surprise, the actual growing of the cannabis plants was not the end of the procedure. It was difficult to deliver the marijuana plants everything they needed to grow in the first place, but there was still more work to be done after that! If & when the plants are mature you can harvest them, & then hang them up to dry to get dry, smokable cannabis buds. If you happen to mess up any step along the way, your cannabis crops will be essentially worthless, they won’t get you high, they will deliver you a terrible headache. I consider this to be far too much work to take on, & too much risk, so why not allow the professionals at the cannabis dispensary to take on all the work? The products at the cannabis dispensary are not cheap either, but after sampling how taxing it is to produce quality marijuana, I understand the high cost.
