Marijuana is becoming legalized in more and more states, in many of them not only for medicinal, but for recreational purposes as well. Purchasing weed is linked to certain restrictions – legal purchase can take place only in special, authorized and regulated shops called dispensaries, recreational marijuana can be purchased only by adults and only in the quantities allowed by the state where the purchase takes place and the purchase of medical weed is usually allowed only if the buyer can produce a suitable prescription – and the laws that regulate the purchasing process might differ by the state, but when you enter a marijuana dispensary, you can expect pretty much the same. In the states where the consumption of marijuana is permitted by the law for both purposes, the dispensaries have a separate area for recreational weed and another one for medical weed and in most shops and both areas sell not only weed, but accessories and other, related products as well. Here are more details.
What to Expect in a Medicinal Marijuana Dispensary?
These shops or dispensary departments specialize in selling cannabis products for the purpose of treating or ameliorating certain medical conditions, therefore anyone who wants to purchase marijuana in these shops will be required to produce a medical letter to prove that the purchase is medically justified.
The products sold in these dispensaries are not restricted to the dried flowers of the plant. The medical benefits of marijuana can be harnessed in various different ways, therefore medical marijuana dispensaries also sell marijuana in other forms, such as edibles, oils, lotions, creams, sprays, suppositories or crystals. The dispensaries are also the shops to turn to for accessories related to the administration of weed, such as bongs, vaping pens, tips, even lighters and ashtrays.
What to Expect in a Recreational Dispensary?
Some states have legalized the consumption of marijuana for recreational purposes, allowing anyone over the age of 21 to purchase a certain quantity of weed. The range of products available in these shops is also varied, the range being very similar to the range offered in medical marijuana shops.

What You Should Know When You Enter the Shop
The budtenders who work in marijuana dispensaries are usually very helpful and knowledgeable about the products they sell, but marijuana strains are so varied, the effects that you can expect are so diverse, that it is a good idea to have at least a vague idea about the product you want to purchase. Before you go to the dispensary, try to figure out the type of product that you want, think about the method that you prefer for the administration and try to determine the effects that you expect – if you are looking for a specific strain, consider your homework done, but if you are looking for a specific type of effect, for example, you want weed that energizes or relaxes you, weed that puts you into a meditative state of mind or weed that makes you cheerful, try to look up the most suitable strains to make the purchasing process easier.
