Planning your first visit to a cannabis dispensary can be both exciting and overwhelming. Whether you are a medical patient, recreational user, or cannabis novice, stepping into a dispensary like Sacred Garden is a unique experience. This guide aims to prepare you with what to expect for your first visit.
Understanding the Difference: Recreational vs. Medical
The first thing to know is the difference between recreational and medical cannabis dispensaries. Recreational dispensaries are accessible to anyone above the age of 21 with a valid ID, while medical dispensaries require you to possess a medical marijuana card. It’s crucial to know the rules before you plan your visit.
What to Bring
Be prepared to bring both cash and a valid photo ID. Most dispensaries, including Sacred Garden, are cash-only due to banking laws around cannabis. ATMs are generally available onsite for convenience. Your photo ID is necessary to confirm your age or medical status, so don’t forget it.
Selecting the Right Product
Choosing the right product at a dispensary can be a daunting task for first-time visitors. Whether you’re interested in smokable flower, edibles, concentrates, or topicals, staff at Sacred Garden are well-versed in all products and can help guide you toward the best product for your needs.
Respect the Dispensary Community
Finally, when visiting Sacred Garden or any dispensary, it’s important to respect other visitors and staff. It is a medical and wellness community, and each person is there for their individual needs and treatment. By respecting everyone’s space and privacy, we ensure an inclusive and inviting environment for all.
