Is THC Good for Pain?

When it comes to pain relief and cannabis, it is usually CBD that is the star compound responsible for the medical reasoning of consuming weed. The truth is, as demonstrated by increasingly numerous recent studies, that THC also plays a role in pain alleviation.

In this article we’ll explain how THC contributes to pain relief and what the studies show – because a simple yes to the question is not enough.

What is THC?

First things first, it’s important to know that Tetrahydrocannabinol, or commonly known as THC, is a compound discovered in 1964, and responsible for the psychoactive effects of the marijuana plant. Back then, it was found that when smoked, THC is absorbed into the bloodstream and after traveling to the brain, it attaches to the endocannabinoid receptors, in parts of the brain responsible for pleasure, movement, and coordination. Today, technology and further studies showed how THC can be consumed without necessarily having to be smoked, yet conveying the same effects on the body.

On the other side of the cannabis spectrum, there is CBD, which affects the body differently, without carrying any psychoactive effects. Recent studies show that CBD plays a part in reducing inflammation and anxiety alleviation. To compare the two, THC impacts how the mind perceives the pain, while CBD acts at the source, as each of these stimulates or inhibits different chemicals within the body.

How Does THC Affect The Body?

In terms of its molecular mechanism, there is more known about THC than any other cannabis compound. It is significant however to also take a look at the body’s endocannabinoid system, because that is the key enhancer for how the body experiences cannabis.

The endocannabinoid system adjusts the body’s desire to remain balanced and stable, a state known as homeostasis. The system is also significant in neuronal and immune cell function – both important factors in pain reception. There are three parts of the cannabinoid system: cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2), endogenous cannabinoids (produced by one’s own body), and enzymes that facilitate the breakdown and use of cannabinoids.

The cannabinoid receptors are located throughout the body and determine how the cannabinoids affect it. CB1 receptors are mainly found in the central nervous system (which include the nerves in the spinal cord and brain) and influence the experience of pain. CB1 receptors play a role in signaling the pain to the brain via the spinal cord. Psychologically, CB1 receptors affect one’s emotions, memory, executive functioning, and reward system.

CB2 receptors influence pain via their anti-inflammatory effect and analgesic properties. These receptors are present in immune cells, peripheral tissues and the central nervous system. THC has a direct effect on both CB1 and CB2 receptors, although the pairing is not as perfect as when it comes to the body’s own cannabinoids.

THC’s Influence On Pain

Pain is the sign that disease is present, it’s a signal that our bodies send to the motherboard that something is not in order. It is a symptom, not a disease itself. But if the cause of the pain remains unknown, there is little chance of relieving it. And this happens more often than one could imagine. The truth is that there are no effective medicines for certain types of pain. 

The manner in which THC interacts with the sensation of pain is quite direct – the peripheral nerves that detect pain sensations contain abundant receptors for cannabinoids, and cannabinoids appear to block peripheral nerve pain.

There is also a role played by THC’s induced euphoria, which can assist in navigating pain, in similar ways as other pain medication does. In that way THC can become a better alternative to the options that are already on the market in the domain of pain relief.

THC vs Opioids

In our quest to find the most effective pain reliefs, the side effects that come along are not always taken into consideration. Recent studies have tilted the balance towards medical marijuana instead of opioids for patients experiencing severe pain.

A 2016 study found that cannabis use for alleviating cancer pain led to a 64% drop in opioid use, improved quality of life, and caused fewer medication side effects. Another study of almost 3000 medical cannabis users showed that while almost 30%  had used opioids in the last 6 months, more than 80% agreed that cannabis was more effective on its own than in combination with opioids. An overall consensus of 97% agreed they could decrease their opioid usage in favor of cannabis.

Takeaways

Medical marijuana is not just an excuse to consume weed. More and more studies demonstrate its effectiveness in treatments that were so far reserved for other substances causing severe addiction. THC in particular plays a significant role in interacting with the body’s pain management system.

While CBD took a central role because of its lack of psychoactive effects and offered benefits in its bonds to the endocannabinoid system, the compounds of cannabis act best in concert (the entourage effect). And in this case, it is a combination between THC and CBD that would bring about the most effective results.

Choosing the Best Cannabis Product for You

What’s Sativa? Will an edible get me higher? What is CBD? How do I roll up this bud – maybe it’s better to go for the pre-roll… There are countless questions that may arise once you take the step and enter the wonderland of the cannabis industry. With its legalization, things are not what they used to be: While in the last quarter of 2018, in Alberta, there were 120 stock-keeping units, in the third quarter of 2021, there were 1515. That than a ten-fold increase in places stocking cannabis products, that ultimately consumers have to choose from.

While retailers do the first round of sorting through what cannabis products to include in their selection, it can still be daunting for the consumer to pick what is best for them. And with the rapid pace at which the market evolves it may prove to be impossible to try a bit of everything. 

So get rid of your FOMO (fear of missing out) and follow these tips on how to pick the cannabis product that will suit you best without testing out the entire range of options. 

Why Are You Looking To Consume Cannabis?

This is the moment when you get real with yourself. Is it medical, recreational, or spiritual reasons? Depending on your answer the best choice of product for you will vary, both on form, intensity (such as concentration of THC), or chemical composition altogether (for instance, no THC at all).

This is a great starting point because you should know from the beginning what your options are before going down the deep end of choice.

 

What Are You Looking For In Cannabis?

Think about the end result, of how you would like to feel after consuming cannabis. Do you want to get focused, energetic, or chatty? Or you prefer a mellow state, a relaxation both for body and mind, a better sleep perhaps… There are three notions you need to remember here: indica, sativa, and the hybrids – each have a different effect on the body.

There are questions you have to ask yourself – for instance whether you mind getting the munchies (because yes, that is not a myth). Then you might consider how strong a buzz you prefer, and accordingly look at the concentration of THC in your product.

Does Form Matter?

You don’t need to be a smoker to consume weed, especially nowadays. And you certainly don’t need to “learn” to smoke just for weed. Gone are those days! Today you can experience the cannabis plant in so many shapes and forms that you don’t need to adjust your lifestyle to incorporate it. You can find cannabis in the right form for you.

There are countless options out there. Take for instance waxes – which is a type of soft, opaque, matte cannabis oil made from extracted oils of the plant; or shatter – a solid and translucent extract reminiscent of shattered glass. There is also the more traditional hash – a technique hundreds of years old where the resin (the trichomes) are compressed into solid chunks. Kief on the other hand is just the resulting resin from the plant, coming in a powdered form. And these are just the concentrates options… not to mention the edibles, vapes, and all the options that come with the dedicated accessories.

Don’t be shy and talk to your budtender about how you can best include cannabis in your lifestyle. If you have a preference, there is certainly an option for it.

What Smells Do You Enjoy?

There is an old as time preconception about weed that it stinks. That is not the case for all however. In fact, thanks to terpenes, there is a myriad of aromas that the cannabis flower can have. Terpenes are aromatic compounds that offer the cannabis plant its specific smell: from piney or peppery tendencies, to citric and fruity notes. 

Although more studies are needed in this direction, in theory different terpenes have different impacts on how one experiences the cannabis flower.

Final Thoughts

Your experience with weed should be fun, it should be an exploration of yourself and the complex cannabis plant. What you have to keep in mind at all times, even if you don’t have the definitive answers for the questions above, is that you should never shy away from asking questions. Nobody grew up knowing it all and it’s never too late to try something new. 

The best course of action at this point is to take the process step by step. Start small, experimenting with flavors, concentrations, forms and effects it will have on your body. Everyone is different and only you can be the judge of what is best for yourself.

The Many Shapes of Weed Stores

In a market where competition is fierce, business owners will get really creative in differentiating themselves from the competition. That is great news for consumers, who have a wide array of options to choose from. Not all weed stores are the same, and in this article we will share with you some of our tips to find those stores that are guaranteed to make your experience so pleasant that you will come back for more.

There is a feeling that the market is saturated at this point (in Ontario alone there are more than 1,000 shops), and that can only mean that new competitors need to become better, offer more valuable experiences and insights, more exciting products on offer and to overall improve the customer experience. 

Looks Beyond Aesthetics

The first thing to be mindful of is the overall care of the shop you are entering. A clean and well-kept place is easy to spot without being a pro in the cannabis space. Beyond that, the overall aesthetics can greatly influence the vibe of the place. Luckily, there is no right or wrong here – or rather there is, but it’s not that clear-cut. So go with what you feel best!

Staff and Atmosphere

The staff of any store you walk into can greatly influence your purchasing experience. Your ideal budtender should be able to guide you through all the choices the store has to offer without overwhelming you, or making you feel like you don’t belong there. 

There is something that weed can offer to each of us, and all you need to do is find the perfect formula for you. If you are new to this world, the journey can be quite long, but it can also be fun and exciting. A big role in influencing that journey is played by the budtenders (more so than nice art on the walls). Be mindful if the staff passes your vibe check, and don’t try to open doors that refuse to open. The choice is yours.

The Selection Available

The offer of flower products is the basic starting point of determining the quality of the weed store you walked into. There should be something for all tastes – not only to serve all customers but to accommodate all the different moods we may experience throughout the day. 

Plus, offering multiple manners of consuming the product, from vaping, pre-rolls, to tinctures or edibles, definitely brings a plus on the value front. 

The Quality of Cannabis

This may be a tricky point to establish, especially if you are not that well seasoned in assessing buds. But that is no crime. In fact, this is one of the reasons why it’s best to establish a healthy rapport with your budtender. 

There are a few aspects that can influence the quality of the flower from its growth stage. From the micronutrients that are fed to plants to the air quality, the types of pots, and not using synthetic fertilizers, the final product can greatly vary in size, taste or intensity. These are all questions that you can ask your budtender. 

While ultimately there is no way you could in fact check what you are being told, that is where the importance of picking a lab-tested product resides. Do pay attention to what the labels say, because that is where you may get a hunch of how much effort was put into your product. 

Location and Delivery

Even the smallest details can play a role in determining the best weed store for you, and location is no small consideration. In fact, this may determine what sort of customers the location attracts, and ultimately what sort of product you are likely to find on display. A lot of stores even offer the option to buy cannabis online. The opening hours can also show consideration to the customers, offering as many people as possible the opportunity to swing by for their favorite cannabis products.

Nowadays there are dispensaries offering even (same-day) delivery. This is an amazing deal if you are not that undecided, or don’t need a short documentary every time you are out buying cannabis.

Some of the most successful dispensaries out there are community centered. That means that they respond to the direct needs of a community. This is in itself an amazing thing to find – knowing that there are stores that look at their customers as real people with needs and desires, and not only money-making opportunities.

You may consider yourself lucky if you can find such a store! Check out Full Sesh for all your cannabis needs.

Choosing an Online Dispensary in Canada

Ever since its legalization for recreational purposes in October 2018, the cannabis industry has been booming in Canada. This means that increasingly more dispensaries are popping up both at street corners, and in the online space. 

Taking the recent pandemic into consideration, it is safe to say that consumers’ behaviors changed significantly from what the market – any market – knew before. There has been an undoubted migration to the digital space, and the trend is here to stay. For good reason too.

Who doesn’t love a little online shopping? Browsing from the comfort of your couch, without any pressure, without the feeling that you’re taking too much space, or too long, or maybe you’re too picky… There are plenty of reasons why it’s better to shop online. And that includes shopping for cannabis too.

The first question to clear up is whether buying weed online is legal. Yes, it is! But that does mean you should be mindful of what dispensary you pick. An online weed dispensary is a digital store that offers a wide range of cannabis products from buds, to edibles, tinctures, beverages, concentrates, topicals, and various accessories.

Convenience

There are so many factors fitting under the umbrella of convenience – from being able to take your time and really get all the facts in order about the products on offer, to reading up on reviews from other customers. There’s you and all the open tabs, and you cannot be holding any queue back because you’re undecided. Time is on your side. Plus, some places even offer same day delivery. 

Privacy

Mindset is probably one of the hardest things to change about a person – and you don’t need to do that when buying your cannabis products. In some places, there is still some stigma attached to weed. And that is why shopping online can be a good solution for you. 

Ordering weed online and having it delivered to your door in discreet packaging is a perk that comes with ordering your cannabis online – is it soap, is it berries, is it weed? Nobody will know.

Special Offers

When shopping online, you can always keep an eye on special offers on your favorite strains and products. 

There are always items with the price dropped, discounts on bulk buys, and that does not mean it’s of any lesser quality – just yesterday’s top-shelf weed (plus, if you’re looking at buds, they can get better in time – provided they’re kept in proper conditions). 

So getting your weed online can be more pocket friendly and you might be in for a tastier experience.

Now that we explored some reasons why you should consider purchasing cannabis online, there are a few things useful to know when picking your online dispensary.

The internet can still be a wild space so it’s good to know what are the reliability signs when ordering your product.

High Quality 

As a rule of thumb it’s better to opt for the lab-tested and approved products to ensure you get the best possible option, and the specs you read about really reflect the contents of the product you’re getting.

A Wide Variety

When your online dispensary offers more than just buds – other items such as edibles, extracts, vapes, beverages or even topicals, not to mention various accessories – it is usually an encouraging sign.

Reviews

Word of mouth never disappoints, and this is the case as well. Look for reviews of the online dispensary to understand what the experience of other customers was (and most likely what yours will be as well). 

Another tip is to look at the online presence of the dispensary beyond its website – try Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or even LinkedIn. You can learn a lot by looking at how the brand engages with their community.

Refund policy

It’s important that the dispensary of your choice has friendly refund policies so that in case you get the wrong product, you can easily make the swap.

Province

While the Cannabis Act ensured the legality of cannabis all across the country, there are still some differences in how each province regulates the sale of weed. 

For instance, in most provinces you need to be at least 19 years old to be purchasing cannabis products, but in Quebec, the legal age is 21 years old.

The retail rights also differ from province to province – in some it is only government-owned subsidiaries that operate the sales (like New Brunswick). In other provinces, private retailers are granted licenses – such as Ontario, where there are more than 1000 licensed cannabis stores.

While there are risks to buying weed online such as not receiving the product you paid for, there are ways to mitigate these risks by doing your due diligence and choosing well-reputed dispensaries. Ultimately you are in for a friendly and pressureless user experience when shopping for cannabis online. It is not difficult, nor overwhelming, and you can get started today!

The Perks of THC Explained

One of the most notorious compounds in the cannabis plant, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC in short) is a cannabinoid responsible for the psychoactive properties of marijuana.

That means, THC is responsible for the high that consumers experience. But how does science explain the high feeling? THC activates the nerve cells as well as immune cells responsible for pleasure, memory, thinking, coordination, and time perception. It induces a certain euphoria that interferes with the perception of pain.

THC mimics a natural chemical of the brain – anandamide. Simply put, it alters brain communication. That is, instead of communication happening via neurons, the THC compound attaches to the neurons and changes the process.

But there is more to be said about THC…

The Curative Value of THC

There are in fact numerous health benefits that THC can command upon the body and mind, as shown by numerous scientific studies ever since the molecule was discovered some 50 years ago.

From depression, PTSD, to epilepsy, or even eating disorders (by increasing the appetite), THC has helped patients alleviate not only the symptoms, but also played a key role in their cure.

A 2015 review compiled the results of studies in patients with chronic pain and found that THC increased the likelihood of pain relief by as much as 40%. 

Other studies show that THC plays a role in easing the chemotherapy effects by protecting them against nausea and vomiting (in comparison to patients who have only received the standard treatment). There have been results in these groups indicating that THC contributes to sleep issues, by reducing the time it takes to fall asleep and reduces the occurrence of sleep disturbances.

There is an overall consensus in the scientific community that more research is needed to deliver fully conclusive results. However, the path is promising, and more studies are underway than ever before with the plant being decriminalised in more and more states.

 

THC & CBD – a great combination

While they are not the only cannabinoids present in the constellation of compounds of the cannabis plant, THC and CBD are the most discussed and researched by scientists. Each of the two interacts differently with a person’s endocannabinoid system, although they have a similar chemical structure.

THC binds to the main cannabinoid receptors, mimicking the structure of a natural occurring chemical in the brain, anandamide. When CBD enters into the equation, it changes how these receptors react to THC. CBD acts as a counterbalance for THC. For instance, researchers observed that CBD could reduce anxiety sometimes caused by THC.

Moreover, when combined, THC and CBD, show the most promise for pain relief. While there are numerous methods today for separating the compounds of the plant, and products on the market offering one or the other, it’s important to note that it’s the combination of compounds that make for a beneficial result.

THC & potency – debunking a myth

In recent years, the concentration of THC in cannabis products has increased. And usually such products are marketed for a higher price. Naturally, the conclusion normally drawn is that higher THC products are better, more potent. That is in fact simply not true.

According to researchers, once the cannabinoid receptors are filled up, any additional cannabinoids have a limited impact simply because they have nowhere to be processed. The receptors are full. This is much like filling a glass of water – you can’t pour more than the glass can hold.

So the idea that a strain with a higher concentration of THC is more potent and thus better is rooted in marketing, supply and demand, rather than science and facts. Focusing only on the THC concentration does not guarantee a better, more intense high. There are other factors at play influencing the quality of buds.

When thinking about cannabis, there is something called the entourage effect – the idea that the whole is greater than each of its parts taken singularly, and these all work together to create a comprehensive and well-rounded experience.

It’s the synergy between all components that determine the quality of the chosen product, and not one compound can tell the whole story.

Takeaways

There is evidence that THC has healing properties, helping patients of many diseases have an alleviated experience, with eased symptoms. 

But there are also benefits of THC for those who consume such products recreationally. Even that sense of euphoria alone can be beneficial to ease the day to day anxieties and stress that we all face even in the absence of a clinical diagnosis. 

But at the same time, as good as THC may be, it works best in the company of the other cannabinoids. While it’s good to be mindful of THC and its benefits, there is a larger picture that makes a cannabis product unforgettable.

At FullSesh we take into consideration the full constellation of cannabis – smell, looks, touch, taste – offering the feel of a complex encounter. This is the FullSesh experience! 

How To Find The Top Quality Buds: A Guide To Weed

If you’re new to smoking weed, it can be difficult to know where to look for the best quality strains. It also takes some time to figure out what you’re looking for in a strain and what qualities indicate good weed. If you’ve never smoked before, or only once or twice and then forgot everything you know about cannabis, read on. Weed can be roughly divided into three categories: indica, sativa and hybrid strains.

Each one of these comes with its own set of benefits and drawbacks. Understanding them is the first step towards knowing which type of weed is perfect for your needs. This article will help you understand the characteristics of each strain so that next time you go shopping, you’ll have the knowledge required to choose the right one.

Indica Strains

Indica is the most common type of weed. There are plenty of indica strains that are perfect for beginners. These include Blueberry, Northern Lights, and Purple Kush. Indica strains are ideal for relaxation and rest. You’ll feel warm and cozy, and may even start to feel drowsy. This is why indica is perfect for winding down after a long day, or when you’re feeling anxious. Indicas are also great for relieving symptoms of chronic pain and insomnia.

Sativa Strains

Sativa is the polar opposite of indica. Where indica is relaxing, sativa gives you energy. They are good for the daytime smoker. Sativas are great for cannabis novices because they produce a clear-headed high that isn’t too overwhelming. They can help you stay focused. If you have a busy day ahead of you, or want to take your creative endeavors to the next level, consider smoking a sativa strain.

Hybrid Strains

Hybrids are a mixture of indica and sativa. They come with the best qualities of both. Like indica, hybrids are good for relieving symptoms of chronic pain, insomnia, and depression. They are also good for staying focused. Hybrids are uplifting like sativas, but also have relaxing effects like indicas. This makes them a good choice for cannabis novices or experienced smokers alike. Hybrids are the best type of weed for most people. If you can’t decide between indicas and sativas, choose a hybrid.

How To Tell Good Weed From Bad Weed

When you’re in the store, you’ll see many different packages with lots of different strains. If you don’t know what to look for, it will be difficult to choose a quality product. Here are a few things to keep in mind as you browse:

The packaging – Make sure the package is sealed. If it isn’t, don’t buy it. If it has a brand name and a logo, it means the company has put in some effort to design their packaging. It is likely a quality product.

The smell – Weed has a distinct aroma. If it smells like earth, it’s probably low quality. But if it smells like pine, citrus, or something else, then you’re in luck. High-quality weed smells amazing.

The colour – Weed should be green. If it’s yellow or brown, it’s old and low quality.

The price – The price of weed is highly dependent on where you live. But if you find a good deal, you can be sure it’s a quality product.

How To Find The Best Quality Buds

The best quality buds are grown organically. This means they are free of chemicals and pesticides. They are also cultivated using natural methods, such as using natural light to stimulate growth. Buds grown organically are more expensive than conventionally grown ones. This is because it requires more time and effort to grow them. But don’t worry, it’s worth it.

When you’re in the store, look for buds that seem to be growing in one clump. It’s a sign that they’re healthy and freshly pulled. Buds with brown edges are old and low quality. Be careful when handling buds. The stems should be trimmed short. Buds that have the stems intact are less potent.

Final Words

Cannabis is used by different people in different ways, depending on the type of bud and strength that they prefer. You can enjoy the benefits of smoking weed and avoid the negative side effects if you are careful about the type of bud that you choose. When you know which type of weed is best for your needs, it will be much easier to find the best quality buds. Tier1 has a great selection of cannabis products. Contact us today to get started.

What is Cannabis? What are the Different Types?

The word cannabis is a blanket term used to describe the plant. It’s also known as marijuana. While these two plants are related, they are very different in terms of their biological makeup. Cannabis products are derived from the flowers of the cannabis plant. There are three types of cannabis plants: Sativa, Indica, and Hybrid. Each type of plant has its own unique chemical makeup and effects on the body. It is important to select a product that is right for your needs.

Indica – Indica strains are known for their relaxing and sometimes sedative effects. They are commonly used for medicinal purposes for its anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects. Indica strains have a higher CBD content compared to Sativa.

HybridHybrid strains are a combination of both Sativa and Indica strains. Hybrid strains commonly provide a balance of the effects that Sativa and Indica bring to the table.

Dry flower/Flower

Dry flower is the most common cannabis product. Also referred to as bud or flower, dry flower is made up of the cured flowers of the cannabis plant. Flower is the best starting product for first-time users. It is a simple way to consume cannabis and is easy to dose. There are many types of flowers on the market, including indicas, sativas, hybrids, and CBD strains. Each flower product has its own unique effects and dosage requirements.

Edibles

This will allow for quick absorption of the THC and CBD.

Vape Pen

Vape pens are a portable way to consume cannabis. They are easy to use and require minimal maintenance. Vape pens are a great product for those who want to consume cannabis but may not have time to smoke a joint. Vape pens are made from different materials. Some vape pens are made from a ceramic material, while others are made from a glass or even plastic. The material used for vape pens effects the overall flavour and experience of the pen. Vape pens are easy to dose and come in various flavours and THC or CBD levels.

Topicals

Topicals are cannabis products that are applied to the skin. They are commonly used to treat conditions like joint pain, muscle aches, and headaches. Topicals use the chemical compound found in cannabis, CBD, to deliver relief. CBD is a non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis that does not make you feel high. It is important to properly source your CBD if you are using it to treat a condition. So make sure to look for products that state they contain CBD from cannabis.

Conclusion

Choosing the right cannabis product is important. Each product offers different benefits and has a different intensity level. Cannabis is a natural product with many benefits that can bring relief to many people. It is important to properly understand the product you are consuming.

4 Ways You Can Shop For Weed Online

Online shopping has become the norm these days. From books to board games and everything in between, buying products online is convenient. It’s also a great way to buy weed if you don’t want to deal with going to a dispensary. That being said, there are plenty of websites that sell high-quality cannabis online. Here are 4 tips on how to shop for weed online.

Research the Different Types of Weed Prior to Shopping

When you shop for cannabis online, you’re likely to find a wide range of different strains and products that may be unfamiliar. Make sure to do your research on the various types of cannabis. Hybrid strains are a combination of indica and sativa strains, while indica and sativa strains are typically classified based on their effects. For example, sativa strains are known to give users a more energetic and euphoric high, while indica strains tend to cause a more calming, relaxed effect. There are also different types of cannabis products, including edibles and topicals. 

Edibles are foods that contain cannabis, while topicals are cannabis-infused products you apply externally, like lotions and salves. Before making a purchase, make sure to read the descriptions of each product so you know exactly what you’re getting. This will help you choose products based on your personal needs and preferences.

Check The Reputation of The Company You’re Shopping With

One of the most important things to look for when shopping for weed online is the reputation of the company you’re buying from. Check online reviews to see what other customers are saying about the shopping experience. Customer service policies, returns, and shipping policies are important to consider as well. Make sure to follow all laws, especially if you’re purchasing cannabis edibles. Make sure the company ships to your province and has the proper licensing.

Set a Budget and Don’t be Afraid to Walk Away

Most importantly, set a budget before you start shopping. Prices for cannabis vary and depend on a number of different things, including quality and strain type. Avoid impulse shopping and don’t be afraid to walk away if you can’t find what you’re looking for within your budget. 

You may even be able to find a strain you like better than the one you were originally shopping for at a cheaper price. If you can’t find what you’re looking for within your budget, consider waiting a little while until the market has time to normalize and prices drop. 

Shop with Brands You Know and Trust

While shopping for cannabis online, you’ll come across lots of new and unfamiliar brands. While you should definitely try out new brands, it may make sense to stick with established brands with a proven track record. These brands have likely perfected their growing, harvesting, and processing techniques, meaning you should be able to find the products you’re looking for at an affordable price. 

If you already know and love a cannabis brand, be sure to check if they sell their products online. If so, you can be confident that the products you receive will be just as good, if not better than the products you’ve come to know and love. You can also ask your budtenders if they know of any online shops you should check out.

Conclusion

When it comes to purchasing cannabis online, there are a number of things to keep in mind. First, make sure you’re shopping at a reputable website. This means the site has a valid, verifiable business address, a privacy policy, and SSL encryption. 

Next, you’ll want to do your research on the various types of cannabis, as well as the products offered on the site. And lastly, set a budget and don’t be afraid to walk away if you can’t find what you’re looking for at the right price. Full Sesh has a great selection of cannabis products. Check us today!
