4 Tips for Buying CBDs From Your Denver Dispensary This Holiday Season

December 26, 2018

In Colorado, we’re lucky enough to have recreational marijuana available for purchase at dispensaries in Denver and across the state. However, other states are not so fortunate and many of our friends and relatives still want to try marijuana. While you can’t bring cannabis across state lines when visiting friends and family for the holidays, you can still treat them to some of the benefits of cannabis by bringing CBD products as holiday gifts. Wondering how to get the best CBDs for your loved ones? Here are a few tips to help.

Skip the Online Stores

When you purchase CBDs online, you have no way of knowing if the product is as high-quality as the website claims. Instead of ordering off of a website, stop by your local dispensary. This way, you’ll know that every product you purchase was manufactured with the highest quality standards in mind. Best of all, you’ll have access to an experienced budtender to tell you what each product is like and what others have thought after using it in the past. 

Make Sure You Buy Hemp-Made CBDs

In Colorado, CBDs can be made from marijuana or hemp. Unfortunately, CBDs made from the marijuana plant, even if they have no THC, are still illegal in many states. Before you purchase a CBD tincture, vape pen, or edible, make sure the CBD is derived from hemp. This way, you won’t be breaking any laws when you cross state lines and your loved ones will be safe once they have them in their possession.

Pick Up a Variety of Items

Just like marijuana, CBD products are available in different forms. There are edibles, salves, tinctures, concentrates, and even pain patches to choose from. Rather than picking up a single type of product, consider bringing a selection. This way, your loved ones will be able to try different things and see which product works best for them. Remember, just because you love your vape pen doesn’t mean your aunt will want to enjoy the same product.

Choose Full Spectrum Products

Many CBD manufacturers sell products as pure CBD. While there may still be some benefits to using these products, they lack the full impact that full spectrum products have. Full spectrum CBDs provide other beneficial compounds, just not THC. These compounds create a more well-rounded product that may enhance the benefits of CBDs, making the product more effective. Since your loved ones can’t experience the joys of using cannabis containing THC, why not give them the closest thing possible?
