Do you trust your medical cannabis purchases to a dealer or do you prefer working with a local dispensary?
Working with a dealer may seem like an easy choice, but it’s likely not your best option. Not only is it illegal to purchase cannabis from a dealer, but the source of your medical marijuana is of utmost importance. Here’s why you should choose a Maine dispensary over a dealer.
Safe & healthy products
Unlike dispensaries, dealers are under no obligation to stay away from harmful chemicals and pesticides when growing cannabis. Chemical and biological toxins can be extremely harmful to consume, especially with continued use.
Dispensaries like Hive, however, work diligently to source medical marijuana from the most reliable and safest of growers. In addition, Hive products are regularly tested in local facilities to ensure the highest level of quality.
What’s more is that many illegal growers who use harmful pesticides are potentially endangering the environment by using these chemicals. Supporting these growers will continue to increase this problem.
Dispensaries work hard to regularly update their cannabis selections with the latest and greatest strain options so that customers can find exactly what they need. By contrast, dealers – and certainly individual growers – are likely less able to provide a wide variety of medical marijuana options.
Furthermore, dispensaries will offer far more variety in how you can consume your cannabis – from edibles to oils to vaping to smoking and more. You’ll probably only have one (or possibly two) different options with a dealer.
Keep money in local economy
Buying from a dealer could theoretically be putting your payments in the pockets of individuals or even international economies, outside of our own, if purchases are made on the black market.
Making your cannabis purchases at a reputable dispensary could also help make a case for future marijuana laws. In other words, the more good dispensaries are doing, the more lawmakers will see the positive impacts for the community.
Work with experts
Your dealer may have a general sense of which strain helps which ailment, but they’re not going to have anywhere near the knowledge of a dispensary owner or employee. Since you’re using medical marijuana, you want to ensure your drug treats your symptom(s).
Experts at your local dispensary can help with questions around strain, dosage, use, and much more.
When it comes to the question of dispensary vs. dealer, it’s a no-brainer. Choose the right Maine dispensary for your medical needs today!
