I was absolutely thrilled when recreational cannabis was finally legalized in my state.

On my first visit, I had no idea of what to expect. Stepping inside the nearby dispensary is always a bit of a surprise. The facility is bright, open and extremely modern. It’s also huge and includes all sorts of wonderful amenities. The collection of dried flower is displayed under glass domes that allow me to clearly see the complex colors, abundance of trichomes and bright orange pistils. The dispensary has started an innovative program that lets consumers choose the exact buds they want. Since they carry over five dozen strains of curated flower, deciding can be difficult. There are also singles and packs of infused and non-infused pre-rolled joints, blunts and cannagars. The dispensary sells refillable and disposable vapes, all sorts of tinctures and an incredible menu of edibles. Their selection of concentrates includes wax, shatter, live resin, kief, hash, budder, sauce, diamonds and budder. I like that the dispensary offers free parking and an ATM on-site. The facility features its own bakery where they create fresh cannabis-infused cookies, brownies and candy daily. There is a vape lounge and cafe where I can hang out, meet some new people and just relax. The dab bar is especially advantageous because I can rent a dab rig and get advice and assistance from a knowledgeable budtender. While I really enjoy spending time at the dispensary and browsing new products, it’s also convenient that they deliver.
