I was easily cheerful when recreational weed was finally legalized in Arizona, but as of 2020, anyone outdated twenty-one or over, with official identification, is allowed to legally purchase and possess up to one ounce of usable marijuana, however my wonderful friend and I can even cultivate up to six plants in our homes… It took about two years for the first recreational cannabis dispensaries to open their doors and start selling… There are five separate dispensaries within driving distance of my loft in Gilbert! Each one offers an exciting array of products, brands and strains.
- I’ve visited all of the dispensaries and browsed their collection of flower, pre-rolls, tinctures, concentrates, vapes, edibles and topicals.
Initially, I was only interested in dried flower and traditional smoking. I thoroughly enjoyed sampling the certain indicas, sativas and hybrids. The quality of weed is easily amazing. They offer dense buds coated in crystal-like trichomes and showcasing bright red pistils. The pungent aroma and vibrant green color evidences cultivation at peak maturity… Smoking flower sold at the dispensary is far different than buying a baggie off a friend. The packaging provides the weight, THC levels and verified testing for safety, and plus, I can save myself the toil and buy pre-rolls. Some are machine-rolled, some are hand-rolled and they are provided in singles, packs and infused varieties. The pre-rolls are especially affordable, making it possible to try new strains separate from a giant investment. I gradually moved on to the assortment of vapes, but weed pens are convenient, discreet and portable. They fit right into a pocket, create no telltale smells and are simple to use… Because of their popularity there are new strains getting introduced all the time. The dispensary closest to my location in Gilbert carries more than three dozen carts, and the flavor is fantastic. I’m also a giant fan of their edibles.
