I now live near a cannabis dispensary.
It is overwhelming how several possibilities there are out there… First, you need to decide if you want a sativa or indica, but a sativa is a day time blend.
It gives you a high, makes you happy, excited, and energetic, then most use this kind of blend for recreational use, then you can get an indica that is a body high, relaxing, peaceful and more of a medical strain for patients. There are of course hybrids that are a combination of both. After you decide that, now decide how you are going to take in the cannabis. The most traditional way is to smoke it. You can smoke a flower form, which is the loose leaf cannabis, through rolling papers, a pipe, bong, hookah, etc. There is an oil form that you can vape. You can choose a more edible route with THC and CBD in a variety of baked goods, gums, mints, drinks, and candies. There are concentrates, tinctures, shatter, and wax. There are topicals that are applied directly to the skin for pain relief; Once you decide how you are going to take it, what blend of THC and CBD do you want? THC is what gets you high and CBD is the part that is more for medical purposes like reducing inflammation, and fantastic the mind and body. After that, you need to know what kind of strain you want, but girl Scout Cookies, OG Kush, Orange Kush, Purple Haze? The name goes on. It is daunting to start getting into cannabis.
