Massachusetts is one of the few states in the US that has made marijuana legal for anyone aged 21 and older. While cannabis continues to remain illegal federally and the state has its own laws about restricting use, you can order your supplies online and offline in Massachusetts. Note that Massachusetts allows a person to have only 1 oz of cannabis and no more than 10 oz at home. There are online dispensaries that allow you to pre-order cannabis in Lee MA. If you are a recreational user, make sure that you are getting your cannabis from the right store. Below are some quick tips that may come in handy.
- Know your strains. Cannabis strains can be broadly divided into three categories – Indica, Hybrid and Sativa. Indica strains are more relaxing and calming and best suited for nighttime use. Sativa strains are more energizing and can boost your mood. Hybrids are a mix of both. Dispensaries in Massachusetts doo offer information on various strains, so do your homework and figure out the best strain.
- Be cautious with concentrates. As the name suggests, concentrates are designed to have a higher concentration of cannabinoids, particularly THC – the only psychoactive compound in cannabis. If you are using concentrates for the first time, follow the rule of ‘less is more’. You can find many options, including tinctures and shatter.
- Edibles take time to take effect. A lot of people are interested in using edibles, probably because these can be consumed discreetly. Note that consuming cannabis publicly in Massachusetts is prohibited. With edibles, be careful with your dosage, because the food has to digested for cannabis to take effect, and these effects also last longer. You can choose to make your own brownies at home using cannabis-infused butter.
- Check the THC content. It is absolutely necessary to check the THC content of your cannabis buds before ordering. You can go for the flower or buds, which can be vaped or smoked, but many dispensaries in the state also have pre-rolls, which are much easier to use. Always start with a strain that doesn’t have an extreme high level of THC. Stick to somewhere around 20% or less when you start with concentrates.
Finally, do experiment with strains to know what works best for your personal needs. For recreational users, the idea is to go slow and experience the flavor and effects of a strain before moving on to the next.
