grandma marijuana senior seniors cannabis grandpaWe all have to start somewhere! With legalization slowly crawling over the US as well as the rest of the world, it’s possible that more people will begin to smoke weed (or not, we still aren’t really sure as to what’s going to happen with that). But even if you’re not new to smoking, buying weed in a store for the first time might be a bit weird… So here’s a list of things to pay attention to when you’re going to shop for bud, according to experts in Colorado.

– Don’t start with the strong stuff! Edibles and concentrates aren’t for the weak, newbie stoner! These products are strong and have the potential to really mess your day up so if you’re not used to smoking flower, don’t run in to the legal stores and buy an armful of medicated Rice Krispy Treats.

– Ask the budtender questions! Don’t be afraid, they’re not going to bite! It’s like asking what’s the best shot of vodka to order at the bar. While you may know what you like, there may always be something better for you to try. Ask questions, learn new things!

– Driving out of legal states? Don’t. Troopers are watching the borders of Washington and Colorado closely to make sure that people aren’t taking the legal weed elsewhere. While it’s okay for you to have it inside the states, as soon as you leave, it’s illegal. Don’t transport weed out of the legal states if you want to avoid getting caught!

– Just like shopping for clothes, be sure to shop around for bud prices! Some stores will have sky high prices (sometimes over $600 an ounce for top shelf strains) and others will have the same strains for way less (around $100 an ounce). If you think you may be able to find a better price, try it! You don’t want to spend all of your rent money on bud, right?

– Keep calm! It’s just buying bud! At least now, you won’t have to fret over the people in the parking lot watching you buy weed from your friend. There’s no more sketchy meet ups, no more freaking out about sirens chasing you on your way home. Just chill out and smoke your legal weed. Enjoy it!

    All people smoking, is awesome haha

  • Stone

    Newbies that suffer from panic attacks should steer clear of strong sativa’s, a good hybrid and indica for nighttime And as the article mentions go for a really weak strain to get used to being stoned. I am sure most bud tenders will give good advice. Taking a cab around town would also be a good choice, not only for your safety but avoid a 10,000 dollar legal bill. Thats what it cost in most states for a driving under the influence regardless of substance.

    Great advice Johnny.

  • Johnny Bloomington

    sativa = head high, day time activity

    Indica = body high, nighttime stuff
    Don’t smoke too much at first because “I don’t feel it.” That’s when the room starts spinning and it hits you all at once…lol

    • YMI

      Based on my experience and experimenting with a vaporizer vs a bong or pipe, I found that indicas don’t go well with vaporizers. At least it was like that for me.

      • Johnny Bloomington

        What vap do you have? I’ve not vaped or dabed. Being from MO, I get what I get and can’t be too picky.

        • YMI

          I got the volcano, it’s very smooth, mellow.High.

          • YMI

            The vape high is completely different than if you smoke it .It’s more upper , cleaner, energetic high.

    • YMI

      That’s exactly what happened the first time I got stoned, it wasn’t fun .I wish I knew about indicas like I know now.

  • Sarijuana

    I agree with all you said. The advice for people new to marijuana to use hybrids is also very good to know. Here’s a blog written just for cannabis newbies http://cannagramma,com

    NOT ALL WEED IS CREATED EQUAL,
    DIFFERENT STRAINS FOR DIFFERENT PEOPLE.
    WARNING:THOSE WHO SUFFER FROM DEPRESSION STAYS AWAY FROM MOST INDICAS the only indicas that you could try are, gdp . cheese, blueberry etc.or try ak47.

          • Dread

            Yo shit reminds me of nupid stiggers

          • YMI

            You seem like a very intelligent person, especially when using words like shit,I guess your not so smart either.

          • Dread

            Excrement, Excreta, Faecal, Midden, Ordure, and of course the crap you think is talent is Quisquilian.

          • Trigger

            Yow! Somebody hit a nerve with Nat Figgers, I mean Nupid Stiggers, Pull your pants up, you look like a chimp in the circus when you walk

          • YMI

            No offense your rapping makes no sense, try smoking better weed, like sour d or something.

        • YMI

          How about you come up with some poetry, then I will follow. Let the competition begin.

          • Fartist

            He drives it slow, like a pot belly cigar, codgers unite with an air of business suit flatulence, ezzie pokes him with a cattle prod, ” I NEED SOMETHING TO EAT” he grunts with digust. Then goes to the lavatory to shave and falls asleep in the tub, He learned to play cards in the service, His lunchtime now Codger george take a barstool by the window, hie eyes fall on the young womens legs and the glasses behind the counter, but occasionally glance of the window to check on the wire wheel hubcaps of his new Buick, She serves him some chili, but then lobs a overhand throw of irate glares as he picks up the change

          • YMI

            WTF? LOL.

          • Proveoux

            This is not rap homey, its creative writing, short story telling, something you do not the intellect or talent compose. Anyone can rhyme like a seven year old. You do not posses even a modicum of talent. Its ok that you are ignorant. You have a whole lifetime to learn, or read a book or anything that makes you smarter

          • YMI

            Really? It seems like your the one with no talent, your just jealous that I’m actually a lot more deeper and , way more intelligent than you could dream of.

  • Choom Gang

    Once you and your partner are comfortable with your new found stoney sunday, try having a nice peaceful stoney love making session. Chances are, you will find a new high in your relationship.

    Attention all people on planet earth, we have now entered the golden age.Weed is a tool that could be used to unlock the subconscious mind to help us become more self aware, besides all the other health benefits psychologically, emotionally physically. This is what I call the beginning of the psychedelic new age, that’s one of the many reasons why it’s still illegal. That being said, there’s so much about this magical and very spiritual plant people need to be aware of.We are going to have to set up shamans/healers and who are knowledgeable about different strains and their effects. OH , AND BY THE WAY CBD KILLS CANCER CELLS . WELCOME TO HEAVEN!

  • YMI

    Anyone out there on Theweedblog, or disqus please let me know if you want me to write poetry/rap/on the subject of cannibis. I have a lot of knowledge about weed that I would love to share with you, I mix a little Stoner humor, with poetry and spirituality.

  • YMI

    You know your too stoned to drive when you get pulled over and the cop asks you for your license and you give him your medical marijuana card instead. Lol.

  • YMI

    In the near future there’s Going to be a Stoner lane on the FREEWAYS. ALL STONERS KEEP RIGHT , EVERYONE ELSE KEEP LEFT.LOL.

  • brad

    Smoking weed is the greatest thing ever created.

  • british gardening

    • Kerfluffle

      NL #5 is a good call.

  • Errl Henry
