#1 – CONSIDER YOUR HISTORY WITH CANNABIS
We hope this is a no brainer, but not all cannabis is the same, and not all people have the same tolerance. First of all, do you have a grip on your tolerance for THC, or are you a first-timer? For example, the regular smoker might be able to handle a 30.3% THC bud, but for the newbies out there you might want to ease into it, starting with lower THC strains and exploring your way up- just make sure you talk to the experts first.
#2 – WHAT’S THE OCCASION?
Concert plans? Movie night? Wednesday?? Whatever the occasion, there’s a bud for you. You;ve just gotta make sure you’re taking account of all the factors. Of course, there are very different experiences in cannabis based on a variety of factors. From the cannabinoids, terpenes, to specific strains, there are a lot of terms to navigate and then apply to your purchase. Looking to learn? Check out FOUR20’s Higher Learning blog for cannabis news, education, and culture.
#3 – THC IS NOT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING
Don’t be fooled folks, THC isn’t the only star of the show here. Terpenes, growing practices and even levels of complementary cannabinoids can affect the high. And here’s where the facts hit folks: to get the best experience, don’t chase the highest THC. For example, to elevate your high & bring it to new levels, you may want to chat with an expert about one terpene in particular- myrcene. You can even read up on all the terpenes with FOUR20’s Terpene Tuesday series to make sure you’re going after the right ones for you.
#4 – MIND YOUR SURROUNDINGS
Do you live alone? Are you using with others? Depending on when, where and what, you might want to consider your cannabis options. Luckily for literally everyone, cannabis comes in many forms: edibles, beverages, flower, vaping, and more. Each method of consumption also happens to have a different effect. So picking the perfect method for your setting is always a key decision in the buying process.
