The first thing to know is that the pot is GOOD.
Medical growers in Oregon have taken a huge amount of pride in their product, and some of the best Cannabis in the United States is produced in Oregon. With THC ranging from 15% – 30%, you can indulge your senses with the huge selection of products available in stores. If you are a light smoker, shy away from the 20%+ varieties or else you will experience the one-hitter-quitter.
Keep your nose tuned for terpenes.
Terpenes are the molecules responsible for the aroma on Cannabis, and the scent in Lavender. A good friend of ours enlightened us that an aromatic bud that makes your mouth water is working with your body chemistry, give it a try.
Find your favorite strains!
Bud Tenders as they are called are extremely knowledgeable about the varieties of Cannabis available in their store. From effects such as hunger inducing, or sleep assistance, to finding an energetic head high, you can experience a variety of qualities and effects from different Cannabis strains.
Know the grower.
Blue Dream from one grower may or may not be the same as blue dream from a different grower. Strains are difficult to verify, and even with the same genetics, the care given in the growing and curing process can induce different qualities and effects in the final product. Find a strain from a specific grower that you like, and stick with it. Our favorites are Grapefruit and Sour Diesel. If you’d like to meet more growers, check out the Cannabis Tours in Oregon!
