I’ve frequented the local store ever since recreational cannabis was legalized in my state.
I obtained either leafy, dried flower or pre-rolls.
I wasn’t interested in getting all that adventurous with consumption methods. I love the process of smoking and find it relaxing. I do, but, concerned about the potential harm of carcinogens on my lungs. When I mentioned my issues to one of the budtenders, she advised me to try vaping. It provides the same fast relief as smoking but avoids the potential risks. Instead of burning the plant matter, vaporization heats cannabis to the point that the resin is released. There’s also less aroma. The smell dissipates almost instantaneously. I don’t need to carry a light, have access to an ashtray or worry about any mess. The vape pens are attractively compact and portable. I can easily carry one in my wallet or pocket… Vapes or cartridges are available in small and refillable options. They are harshly easy to use. All I need to do is push the button and inhale. Because of the recent popularity of vapes, there are lots of choices. The choice of hybrid, sativa and indica strains is nearly overwhelming. There is a wide variety of terpenes, THC potency and CBD potency. I now buy loose flower and pre-rolls for relaxing at the lake house at night. I switch to the convenience and discretion of vapes for when I’m on-the-go. I take advantage of the biweekly deals to save some money. I am really thankful to my local budtender for helping me expand my awareness and preferences for cannabis consumption methods.
