Guide to recreational cannabis buying

In Travel Tips by coloradohighlife

Looking to buy some recreational cannabis?

One main question we get from our guests is this….”What kind of recreational cannabis should I get?”  Well that question has many different answers. We will cover most of them.

If you have never smoked cannabis or very little or it has been a while, we recommend sticking to the cannabis flowers (buds) and get some that are a lower THC level (13%-15%).

A few pre-rolled joints 2-3, or a vapor pen with a 420 mil cartridge will get you through the weekend (2 days). For this level of smoker we recommend no more then 1 gram per day to buy.

No edibles for you as they can have a negative effect for first timers. Take it slow with cannabis use and you will have a good time. Cannabis tours are a great option.

Seasoned Stoners

Now if your a seasoned cannabis connoisseur, we recommend about 1 to 2 grams per day of high quality flower (18%-24% THC) and about 100 milligrams of marijuana edibles, or .5 gram of concentrate or bubble hash for you. Anymore would be a waste.

Concentrates potency is like this, most to least, #1Shatter,  #2 Wax/Flake #3 honey oil. Co2, alcohol or butane extracted concentrates are available (we prefer Co2).

Buy 1 gram of each flower to get the full strain selection you want. You will get better deals buying by the 1/8th, but are limited to just that one strain purchase. This way you get to experience the whole cannabis culture by getting a little of this and that, tasting the rainbow of flavors Colorado retail cannabis has to offer.
