What kind of recreational cannabis should I buy?
One main question we get from our guests is this….”What kind of recreational cannabis should I get?” Well that question has many answers. We will cover most of them.
If you have never smoked, smoke very little or it has been a while, we recommend sticking to the just the flower (buds) and try to get some that are a lower THC level (13%-15%). We recommend no more then a few pre-rolled joints (2-3), or a vapor pen with a 250 mil cartridge, that there will get you through the weekend (2 days). Also for this level of smoker we recommend no more then 1 gram of cannabis per day to buy. We don’t recommend edibles for you as they can have a negative effect for first timers. Remember to take it slow with cannabis use and you will have a good time. Find the top 10 water pipes in the U.S.
As far as info for Indica vs Sativa that info is here.
Now if your a seasoned cannabis connoisseur, we recommend about 1 to 2 grams per day of flower (18%-24% THC) and about 100 milligrams of edibles, or .5 gram of concentrate or bubble hash for you. Anymore would be a waste. Concentrates potency is like this, most to least, #1Shatter, #2 Wax/Flake, #3 honey oil.
These concentrates range in extraction methods from Co2, alcohol or butane extracted (we prefer Co2). We recommended to buy 1 gram of bud from a few different strains, so you get the best experience you can & get the full strain selection you want. Now, you will get better deals buying by the 1/8th, but then are limited to just two strains to purchase as a 1/4 ounce (7grams) is all you can buy in one Colorado purchase. Also, this way you get to experience the whole cannabis culture by getting a little of this and that, tasting the rainbow of flavors Colorado retail cannabis stores have to offer.
