The difference between medicinal and recreational cannabis dispensaries

These shops usually have a menu organized by product type, such as flower, concentrate, edible, topical and much more

Both medicinal and recreational cannabis have recently become legal in my home state. It is already being sold in local storefronts. I noticed that there were advertisements for medical dispensaries and recreational, adult-use stores. I wasn’t quite sure what the difference was. The design of a medical cannabis dispensary is to provide patients a secure source for cannabis grown to treat ailments. These businesses are regulated and taxed differently than recreational outlets. The interior decor of medical dispensaries is typically more like a doctor’s office than a storefront or spa. Consumers need to produce the proper documentation in order to make a purchase. Most medicinal dispensaries require a doctor’s recommendation, medical cannabis certification and the documentation specified by the particular state. Consumers must be over eighteen to qualify for medical authorization, although exceptions can be made for minors with debilitating medical conditions. Patients need to register with the medicinal dispensary, where the documentation is kept on file for legal and regulatory purposes. Just like in a doctor’s office, there’s a waiting room to control the flow of patients and provide privacy. Rather than a doctor, a budtender meets with the consumer. Recreational dispensaries are often referred to as adult-use shops because not all patrons are consuming the cannabis solely for enjoyment. Cannabis provides so many benefits beyond recreational use. Adult shops don’t require the extensive documentation before making a purchase. You need to be at least 21 years old to buy cannabis products from an adult-use shop. These shops usually have a menu organized by product type, such as flower, concentrate, edible, topical and much more. The best cannabis isn’t necessarily the most costly and doesn’t depend on THC percentage.
