You Have Options

March 28, 2022

I remember when dispensaries first became legal and started popping up all over Colorado. At the time, I had held onto the idea that only those who already smoked or partaken in cannabis would be using these dispensaries. I did not think that those who had never used the product would suddenly be curious and start using it just because now it was legal. Shows you what I know!

Indeed, once dispensaries were legal, many who had never thought to enjoy cannabis, decided to give it a go. Without the fear of legal repercussions, they had nothing to lose and were curious. But one question remained for them—how would they be partaking of the product. Many who had never partaken had perhaps never done so because they did not want to smoke. They were in luck because dispensaries like Altitude Dispensary have options. Lots of them. If you don’t want to smoke, you don’t have to. That is not the only way anymore to enjoy the joys of cannabis. 

Altitude Dispensary has an array of options for you to choose from. Of course, there is flower. ‘Flower’ is what us old schoolers used to call ‘pot’ or ‘weed’ or ‘grass.’ It is the green stuff you put in your pipe and smoke. It’s probably what you think of when you think of the legalization of marijuana. This is sold in grams and there are a variety of strains within two main categories of indica and sativa. Flower is smoked, perhaps in a bong, or a pipe, or a joint. It is lit with a lighter and inhaled. But a lot of people don’t want to have to smoke it, which is why there are now alternatives.

Your next option is vapes. There are all sorts of vapes that vaporize the flower, wax or oil so that you do not have to burn it. You can vape using a vape pen or an old school traditional vaporizer that looks somewhat like a hot air balloon made of plastic wrap.
Your next option if you would like to reap the effects of cannabis without actually smoking it, is edibles. Edibles are food products which have cannabis in them. You eat these rather than smoke them. These products come in a mind boggling amount of choices these days. Altitude Dispensary has chocolates, hard candies, baked goods, drinks and so much more for you to choose from. These products tell you on the label how much THC you are getting and also let you know the correct dosage so you take just the right amount to get the best high from it. 

So, whether you’re a long time cannabis user, or you are simply curious and want to find out what all the hype is about, Altitude Dispensary has all your needs covered. Come on in today and chat with their friendly budtenders to find out what might suit you best. They have daily and weekly specials to make it affordable for you too.
