My buddy moved out west after university so he could work in the then burgeoning weed industry.
I wanted to join him because I was sick of trying to get wonderful cannabis off the black market. It was consistently a hit & miss situation when we bought bags of flower buds from unknown sources, never sure what the quality was until we could get it lake home & smoke it. You could experience a big drop in THC satisfied from a single batch to another without it affecting the basket appeal too much, because often the buds would still look nice to the naked eye. And if the terpene satisfied was wonderful for that batch, it would stink good as well. Nowadays it’s a relief to have access to legal cannabis in the places where it’s located. In a lot of places it’s required to lab test the marijuana products that your company sells, which gives consumers a clear picture of the potency of each batch. You can suddenly learn what kind of terpenes that your body responds well to, especially when you come across a number of similar strains that work wonders when you consume them. My state happens to have both medical & recreational cannabis, although I retain our medical marijuana card so I pay less at the dispensary. All recreational cannabis purchasers are taxed at the dispensaries while the medical patients are not taxed. That’s a 15% savings on every single marijuana purchase, so that’s why I’m so eager to keep our medical marijuana card active even if it costs a little bit of cash. It truly pays for itself with the big savings it garners me.
