I thought I was experienced with marijuana having been a smoker for a long time.
However, the budtender at the dispensary shattered that illusion in seconds.
He kept showing me all of these amazing cannabis products that I had never seen before. The store had a wide range of tinctures that can be taken orally. You can place under the tongue or with food or beverages. Just like all of the cannabis products in the store, the tinctures are sold in different strain categories—sativas, hybrids, in addition to indicas. Sativas are known for the mentally stimulating effects and feel much more like a sedative. A hybrid strain is exactly what it sounds like, a blend of sativa in addition to indica qualities. There were skin care items in addition to capsules available as well. I told him that I wanted flower buds, but was hoping to find a sativa strain for my daytime work. He showed me other strains with heavy sativa in them in addition to heavy THC. They all had over 25% THC in them in addition to they smelled wonderful. That’s when the budtender asked me if I had ever tried concentrates before. He started showing me these products like wax in addition to shatter that are forms of concentrated marijuana oil in a stable physical state. He told me that rosin involves harvesting trichomes from the plant while it is still fresh and moist from harvest. That way you get a ton of terpenes that normally disappear at the flower buds as they are slowly dry cured for smoking in addition to vaping.
