First Time Buying Flower? Here's What You Need to Know!

There has never been a better time to try marijuana flower! If you are an Ohio resident with a medical condition, you can qualify for your medical marijuana card. This can help add medical marijuana to your treatment plan.

Marijuana flower is one of the most beloved marijuana methods around. It’s classic, versatile and the most cost effective marijuana form!

With the medical marijuana industry in Ohio growing quickly there are many questions swarming around. What if I have never bought marijuana flower before? How do I know which strain to choose? How do I know which flower produces the best for me?

All of these questions we will answer in today’s article!

How Do I Know Which Strain to Choose?

This is a great question! Many people don’t know where to start so you are not alone.

Most people know of indica, sativa and hybrid strains. Hate to break it to you but these categories are actually a myth. There are only marginal differences between these three types of strains. In fact, these three categories were first used to describe how the strains looked, not what their effects were.

Even though these categories only have marginal differences, people still use these three categories to describe marijuana effects. Indica is for sedative strains that make you feel relaxed, sativa indicates more stimulating strains that can keep you focused and hybrids can be anywhere in the middle. In reality, most strains you are going to find are hybrids. Actually finding a strain that is purely sativa or indica is extremely rare!

So what should you actually be looking for in a strain since these three categories aren’t accurate?

When picking out your strains, you should be looking at two important factors. First, keep an eye out for the terpene profile. Terpenes are the compounds that give plants their texture, color, flavor, and smell. They are extremely important for the effects that you want to feel with your marijuana flower.

Second, you want to look at the cannabinoid ratio in the strain. The two most popular cannabinoids are THC and CBD. THC is known for having psychoactive effects while CBD is known for its non-psychoactive effects. When purchasing flower, you can choose different ratios depending on which medical condition that you are trying to treat!

How Do I Know Which Flower Product to Buy?

Loose, raw marijuana flower is not your only option at Ohio dispensaries! The marijuana industry is growing so quickly and there are tons of new ways that you can consume one method of marijuana. There are many flower product types at different price points depending on what you are looking for!

One amazing thing about purchasing your marijuana from a licensed marijuana dispensary is that you don’t have to worry about quality. It may sound like a backwards thing to say but since the medical marijuana industry is highly regulated, the marijuana that you purchase at the dispensary is already top quality. You can be confident that you are getting the best products out there at any Ohio dispensary!

When purchasing flower products, think about how you want to consume your marijuana flower. Do you want to dry vape it? Do you want raw flower that you can roll yourself at home? These are the questions that will help guide you through which flower product to purchase!

Remember to Enjoy it!

Even though you are using medical marijuana to treat your condition, remember that you can still enjoy it! There is no reason why you can’t aid your medical condition while also having a nice experience.
