Here is a comprehensive list of some of the typical eight questions that you’ll need to answer.
1. What’s the Cannabidiol Content of the Cannabis Product?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the compounds known as cannabinoids found in cannabis; it has an analgesic effect, making cannabis ideal for medicinal use. If you’re looking for a medical marijuana product, it’s advisable to go for a product that has high CBD levels. Remember, cannabidiol lacks the ‘feel high’ or intoxicating effect, and it counteracts the intoxicating or psychoactive effect of the delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) chemical in cannabis that causes intoxication.
2. What’s the Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) Content of the Cannabis Product?
The delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) compound in marijuana causes the intoxicating effect that makes you feel ‘high.’ If you’re looking for a recreational cannabis product that will make you feel ‘high,’ or intoxicated, then go for one that has more THC than CBD. If you’re going to smoke a ‘joint,’ you also have to think about the flavor profile, which often varies depending on the strain of marijuana you choose to buy. THC gets measured in percentage, and the ideal range should be 15% to 20%, and 20% is highly intoxicating.
3. Where Does Your Cannabis Retailer Source Their Cannabis?
It’s always good to buy your cannabis from a company that grows and tends to its marijuana plants. The cannabis plant absorbs bioaccumulates the agricultural chemicals used in the soil and on the plant to control soil nutrition levels, pests, and diseases. You should thus use a company that has total control of the growth process, and if possible, choose one that uses organic practices to get the best quality of cannabis that hasn’t gotten adulterated with toxic chemicals.
4. Does the Cannabis Supplier Provide Delivery?
Are you a busy person with little time to spare for shopping around? Or are you disabled and unable to visit your supplier more often? If these questions describe your lifestyle, it will help if you look for an online cannabis selling platform to place an order and get the product delivered to your doorstep.
What are other Cannabis Users Saying About Your Prospective Cannabis Supplier and Products?
Most cannabis product users often leave their reviews online, or you can get some from buyers at the local cannabis shop. Recommendations and reviews can help you determine whether you’ll get a good cannabis product from a seller or not.
6. How Do You Want to Take Your Cannabis?
Do you want to vape it or smoke it? Or would you like to get chewable gummies, biscuits, and infused tinctures? The best cannabis suppliers may have all these products, but know, you should first make inquiries.
7. How Much Do You Intend to Spend on Your Cannabis Products?
Price is an important consideration, and so is quality. Therefore, don’t compromise on quality by going for cheap marijuana that may not be of high quality. It would help if you always shopped around to find a supplier with the best marijuana and favorable pricing levels.
8. Does Your Supplier Also Provide Marijuana Use Accessories?
You can use a vaping tool or a pipe to smoke your marijuana, or you may need some high-quality paper to roll some cigar-like ‘joint.’ Always, go for the seller who also sells such accessories to get all that you need under one roof.
