How To Buy Weed In Washington’s Recreational Market

THC is just a small part of the cannabis purchasing equation. As an experienced cannabis user and I’ll explain what you should be looking for when you’re buying weed in Washington.

Find Budtenders You Trust When Buying Weed In Washington

I’m just going to say what everyone knows. Not all budtenders are equal, and some downright suck at their jobs and just look blown to be at work. Just because you love getting high doesn’t mean you’re educated about cannabis, it just means you love getting high.

Find a budtender that is educated about the products you’re asking about. If they can only describe cannabis as “that fire” or “dank” visit after visit, you might want to take what they say with a grain of salt. Find someone who can articulate strain knowledge in a digestible manner. Find a budtender that can teach you about: terpenes, cannabis genetics, grow methods, how concentrates are made, the differences between concentrates their stores brand specifics and know the in’s and out’s of recreational compliance. You can’t look at the product outside of packaging in Washington, so budtenders are extra important to relay product information

Brand Knowledge

This is why brands are dope. It allows you to chunk all the necessary information needed when making a purchase simply by recognizing a logo or color combination. Do some research online. Many brands have awesome websites and Instagram accounts aimed at product education. Attend vendor days and tour grow facilities.  Grill salespeople and brand ambassadors about the quality of their products. Look for transparent brands that do a great job of dispersing product information there’s a good chance you’re finding safe products.

Terpenes > THC Numbers

Terpenes matter. THC packs the psychoactive effects, but how THC interacts with terpenes is what dictates strain-specific effects. Terpenes produce the common aromas we associate with cannabis. Hazes have high amounts of terpinolene. Citrus aromas come from terpenes like myrcene and limonene. That sharp pine aroma comes from pinene. Some terpenes carry more THC across the blood-brain barrier, which is why a strain can be extra effective, despite having low THC numbers. Find a strain you can’t get enough of? Find out what terpenes were present and you can shop for those terpenes in other brands and strains.

Be Shallow Judging Cannabis

When there’s smoke, there’s fire. Does it look pretty? Buy it. Does it look pretty and you can almost smell it through the jar? Obviously, buy it. If the buds are full, fluffy, and covered in trichomes, buy it. Even if the label says it has 12 percent THC. Pretty weed with low numbers is always a better bet than bammer with high numbers on a label. It’s like drinking Everclear out of plastic handle because it has a higher alcohol content instead of enjoying Tito’s or Grey Goose for a little more money. If you drink everclear like that, you have other issues that cannabis might not fix anyways.

In The End, You Just Have To Smoke

The barrier to entry for cannabis education is still high, and there is a steep learning curve involved. At the end of the day, you can do all the research in the world, but you never really know how weed will affect you until you smoke it. So find something you vibe with, clear your schedule, and take a chance.

At the very worst, you get too high and reality gets weird for a few hours. If that happens, just drink some water and hang on for the ride. You’re not going to die and it’ll build some character. (This happens to me, at least twice a month.)

Take my advice from above, and eventually, you’ll find a cannabis purchasing formula that works for your lifestyle. There might be some missteps on the way, but it happens to everyone.

Honu Edibles Are Some Of The Best In Washington State

Honu’s Coconut Snowballs, Peanut Butter Cups, and Sa’mores have been considered some of the best cannabis snacks for well over a year now. What could be better than peanut butter, marshmallows, chocolate, coconut, and weed? So far, we haven’t found much else.

Honu edibles are often recommended by our team as some of the best edibles on the market. When you visit next, make sure to ask a budtender to show you up close.
