Screaming OG

If you haven’t had a lot of experience with marijuana, it’s reasonable that you might feel a little bit nervous making a trip to a recreational dispensary. If you are feeling uneasy, the best thing you can do is research and prepare! So, with that in mind, here are a few things you should know before you make your first trip.

Always Bring Your ID

The first thing you might be wondering is what types of ID are required in Colorado for those looking to purchase marijuana. This is a great question and it’s definitely a good idea to make sure you research the individual laws in each area before you head to a dispensary. This way you’ll avoid being disappointed by not being able to make your purchase.

Always bring government-issued ID to recreational dispensaries.

Dispensaries in Colorado accept most forms of government-issued ID. Expect that you’ll need to show your ID at least 2 or 3 times throughout the process. You’ll need your ID to enter the dispensary and you’ll need it again at check-out time to confirm that you are at least 21 years of age.

It is also a good idea to make sure that you know what type of payment the dispensary accepts. If you’re not sure, call ahead!

Traveling With Cannabis

If you plan on traveling and using cannabis it is important that you make sure you are well versed in the laws. Research the laws of the location you are currently in and the laws of the location you are entering. Also be aware of any rules and regulations around airports, bus terminals, and train stations. Don’t be afraid to ask questions if necessary. Better safe than sorry!
