The use of marijuana has been a hot topic for decades. Is it good for you, is it not; should people be able to indulge, should they not? Questions like these are the tip of the iceberg when it comes to answering the question of whether Marijuana should be legalized. In many states, the recreational use of marijuana has been legalized; however, the sale of it has not. For those states, you have a couple of options. Either grow it yourself or find a friend with a medical marijuana card and have them buy it from a local dispensary.
A vast group of people, from all backgrounds, and age groups are not against the responsible sale and use of recreational marijuana, both of the smoking and edible versions. The benefits of these products have been shown to far outweigh the stereotypical negatives that have plagued this plant from the start. This is just part of the reason why more and more states are legalizing its use, and why it is being discussed on a federal level. With everything from epilepsy, to easing the effects of cancer treatments, and everything in between. It’s no secret that marijuana and its derivatives, such as CBD oil, are helping people every day, deal with the aches and pains of chronic illnesses, anxiety, invasive treatments, and more.
So, if that’s the case, then why are so many states holding out on legalizing this plant? Well, I think most people know that answer to that; however, with more and more studies being done that show that vast and ever-growing list of positive attributes of indulging in this plant, it would not be surprising to find the list of Lansing Dispensaries grow past its current number. Hopefully, when that happens, they will have expanded past just the sale of medical marijuana, and into recreational use as well. As has been seen in many states that have legalized the use and sale of recreational marijuana, the tax dollars from this venture have brought great growth into the state. With the ability to do even more for infrastructure, education, healthcare, veterans’ programs, and more. So, why so many dispensaries anyway, and is one going to be better than the next? In short, there is a chance that you will find similar quality at each dispensary. However, the right dispensary is going to be able to create the package that is best suited for helping your particular needs; that is if your need is truly medical. There are three main strains that a dispensary will carry; Indica, Sativa, and Hybrid. Indica provides a physical effect, while Sativa produces a cerebral effect, and Hybrid provides you with the best of both worlds. Don’t think, however, that this is written in stone.
This is to be used more like a guideline, with your individual needs taking center stage. A good dispensary will be able to walk you through the strains, scents (which play a big factor in its effectiveness), and levels of different cannabinoids, to pinpoint the product that will best meet your needs. Recreational users, that still have to rely on the friend with the medical marijuana card? Don’t be afraid to let them take the reins. They will know best whether the quality of the marijuana they receive at a certain dispensary is the real deal or not. Making sure that medical marijuana is regulated is also a big indicator as to whether dispensaries are worth their salt. Thankfully, for the Lansing Dispensaries, Michigan is a regulated state when it pertains to medical marijuana. This means, that the product being sold is professionally tested, and not open jar, sniff tested, with the nuggets being manhandled by someone in a dirty shirt and no gloves. If it looks, smells, and runs like a pharmacy, chances are you are in the right place. If not, you would be better off taking your business elsewhere, especially if your need truly is medical in nature.
