Here’s the thing.
If you want to save money while shopping at a cannabis dispensary, you need to know a few things about buying cannabis and about shopping in general.
One thing to understand about cannabis from the get-go is that it tends to be an expensive product.
This is partly due to the high demand, but it’s also partly due to taxation.
With that being said, you can absolutely enjoy a cannabis habit without spending a ton of money on it.
In fact, legal dispensaries have helped to make this more possible than ever.
You just need to know how to get it done.
So in this guide, you’re going to learn a few tips and tricks to help you save money while shopping at a cannabis dispensary.
Let’s dive into it.
Keeping things basic and simple is really where this whole process starts.
If you walk into a dispensary planning to drop money on some weed, some edibles, a new pipe, a bong, and a bunch of other stuff—you’re absolutely going to spend far more money than you need to.
Keep things simple.
Choose one or two different products that will provide the THC high you’re looking for, and stick to those.
Most people already have a smoking apparatus at home.
If you don’t, consider opting for joints or blunts. You can buy these as pre-rolls at a very reasonable price, or you can roll your own for even less.
It’s a lot of fun to drop a bunch of money on fancy stuff at the dispensary.
But if the goal is to save money, keep it simple.
(Note: If you need to find a local dispensary, check out Veriheal and use their dispensary location tool to find an awesome option near you.)
For a lot of people, walking into the dispensary is a lot like a kid walking into a candy store.
Your eyes are always bigger than your stomach (or in this case, your lung and brain capacity), and you always end up buying a lot more than you actually need to get the job done.
(And by getting the job done, we mean, getting satisfyingly high and enjoying yourself on the product.)
In other words, you don’t need to walk into the dispensary and buy enough weed to get you high for a year.
Buy what you need for the next day or two, and leave it at that.
Enjoy those products. And then, when you’re done with them, return to the dispensary and buy more.
There’s probably not a single person working in a dispensary who doesn’t understand the value of getting the most product possible for the least amount of money.
And quite honestly, everyone you talk to is probably going to have their own take on how to accomplish this.
With that being said, don’t be afraid to straight up ask for advice on how to get the best deal (i.e. the most THC for your money).
If you’re dealing with some friendly, local, down-to-earth dispensary service people—they’ll probably understand exactly where you’re coming from, and will be able to recommend some awesome options.
There’s an old saying…
“Beggars can’t be choosers.”
Well, you may not necessarily be a ‘beggar,’ but it still pays to not be super picky when you’re trying to save money shopping at a cannabis dispensary.
Be willing to buy stuff from the bottom shelf.
Be willing to buy the stuff that isn’t quite as flashy or as fancy.
By the ‘normal stuff’ that ‘normal weed enthusiasts’ smoke on a regular basis.
It may not be fancy.
But you’ll tend to get a lot more for your money.
Speaking from a strictly philosophical perspective, not being picky in life can truly lead to greater acceptance and appreciation of the world around us, fostering a more open and compassionate outlook.
It can also lead to greater flexibility and adaptability, allowing us to more easily navigate challenges and embrace new experiences more often.
And hey—if you’re on a budget, it’s an awesome trick for finding more happiness and less negativity.
