4 Things You Need To Know Before Visiting A Marijuana Dispensary

To ensure you have the best experience during your first dispensary trip, make sure you understand this short list of things a person needs to know before visiting.  

People have a tendency to get a bit excited when the concept of legal weed comes alive in their state. Hey, we can’t say that we blame them. It’s not every day that a plant still considered as dangerous as heroin and LSD in the eyes of the federal government gets the green light to be sold in a retail environment similar to beer.

A new study reveals that high-potency weed won't actually get stoners any higher than regular weed

While the generally held assumption is that high-potency weed — say with a lofty THC count — will produce a higher high, a new study suggests that isn’t actually the case.

Researchers from the University of Colorado, Boulder looked to see if physical and cognitive impairment among regular cannabis users varies based on THC blood concentration. Touted as the first study to assess the acute impact of cannabis among real-world users of legal market products, it involved randomly assigning higher- or lower-THC products to 121 users.  Participants used weed they had bought on their own and consumed it in their homes before being tested.

Many frequent marijuana users feel safe behind the wheel while high

According to research conducted by the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), many frequent cannabis users believe driving under the influence of marijuana is safe. 

The CDOT launched a two-year campaign in 2017 dubbed The Cannabis Conversation, which aimed to understand how people feel about driving under the influence of marijuana in Colorado, where recreational cannabis has been legal since 2012. 

Although it did not provide specific statistics, the CDOT said it surveyed 18,000 Colorado residents across a series of studies since 2017 and concluded that frequent cannabis consumers are more prone to considering driving under the influence of the substance as safe.
