The 7 Key Signs That You Have Found a Quality Cannabis Dispensary

An outdoor sign for a cannabis dispensary

An outdoor sign for a cannabis dispensaryAs cannabis makes headway in becoming legalized in more states, many people are interested in checking out dispensaries for the very first time. While this is certainly a good thing, if you are new to the world of cannabis, it might seem overwhelming. After all, you want to make sure you are purchasing quality products from a reputable business. This will help to bring about peace of mind while initially giving cannabis a try. 

Here at From The Earth, we believe knowledge is power and education is the root of having a good experience with cannabis. Today, we want to outline some of the key traits that any quality cannabis dispensary should have so you know exactly what to look out for. Plus, we want to take a moment to talk about our Santa Ana marijuana delivery services. Keep reading to learn more!

 

Trait #1: Friendly and Knowledgeable Staff

When you enter a cannabis dispensary for the first time, you should feel welcome to ask any questions that you might have. If you are talking to an employee and they seem disinterested or impatient, don’t hesitate to walk out and take your business elsewhere. Any reputable business will employ friendly and knowledgeable staff that will help you find the best product for you. 

Budtenders will also know what kind of questions to ask you as well. For example, they might inquire about what type of high you are after, such as a head high instead of a body high. They will also work to narrow down strains, flavors, and even product types. Every cannabis experience is not one size fits all. By the time you leave the dispensary, you should feel confident about your decision and the purchases you made.

 

Trait #2: Many Product Options

Long gone are the days where weed is just weed. In fact, many cannabis enthusiasts don’t even smoke. There are tons of options out there, including edibles, tinctures, beverages, vapes, topicals, and more! Once again, when you walk in and see all the different packages, try not to feel overwhelmed. 

As we mentioned above, everyone has different preferences. While you might enjoy a chocolate bar that gives you pain relief and a body high, another patron might want to smoke a vape that has a fruity flavor and offers up a quality head high. Regardless of what you choose, all are great options! Any quality cannabis dispensary will have a multitude of products to choose from. 

 

Trait #3: Different Locations

Driving to a far away location to get cannabis? In this economy? No way! Gas prices are high enough as is, and you deserve to shop somewhere that is conveniently located. At From The Earth, we have multiple franchise locations in various states. In California, our Port Hueneme and Santa Ana locations are easily accessible with new locations coming soon!

While a convenient location shouldn’t be the sole deciding factor when choosing a cannabis dispensary, you understandably don’t want to make a long trek to find what you need. However, once you find a spot that you really like, it will always be worth the trip!

 

Trait #4: Loyalty Programs

Loyal customers deserve to be recognized and kept in the loop regarding events, specials, and coupons. If a cannabis dispensary really values their customers, they won’t just talk about it – they’ll be about it! That is where something like a loyalty or rewards program comes into play. While it likely looks different at each dispensary, some place where you can earn points or credit towards future purchases is a huge bonus.

Here at From The Earth, we do feature a customer loyalty program! For every dollar you spend, you accrue one point. There are special promo days where you can earn double and even triple point bonuses as well! Once you have earned 500 points, take $10 off your next purchase. Or you can save up points for even bigger rewards. Plus, loyalty program customers get 15% off on their birthday. 

Trait #5: Discounts and Specials

Even for those who aren’t reward members, most cannabis dispensaries will have other discounts available. Some of the most common ones include senior or veteran discounts. At From The Earth, we don’t just stop there. Because we recognize that many customers utilize cannabis for medical purposes, we also offer specific discounts for that as well. 

For example, at our Santa Ana location, those with a medical or disability need receive a 10% discount. Chronic pain patients get 20% off. And for those battling a terminal illness, we offer those customers 30% off. Cannabis should be more affordable and accessible, especially for those with medical needs.

 

Trait #6: Event Days

We believe that cannabis should be fun and is something worth celebrating. Our customers also deserve to have a blast, too! That is why we regularly host customer appreciation days with live music, food trucks, a prize wheel, and of course, various discounts and specials. Around the holiday season, be on the lookout for additional event days, including a ‘Halloweed’ Spooktacular in the fall! 

 

Trait #7: Marijuana Delivery Services / Curbside Pickup

You shouldn’t have to make a trip to the dispensary if you don’t want to! At From The Earth, our Port Hueneme and Santa Ana marijuana delivery services bring your favorite products right to your doorstep. With same day delivery arriving within less than an hour, you can kick back and relax knowing that your weed is on its way! Just hop onto our website and add your favorite selections to your cart.

What Is the Difference Between a Head High and a Body High?

A woman smoking cannabis in a chair

A woman smoking cannabis in a chair

If you have been consuming cannabis for any length of time, odds are good that you have done a fair share of experimenting with various strains in an effort to find out what you did or didn’t like. Maybe one strain left you couch-locked with light limbs, or the other made you feel creative and alert. With so many different strains available on the market, it makes sense to want to find what is the best fit for you. 

The reason that there are so many different strains of cannabis is because they each have unique highs that a person can experience. While these can get pretty specific, most strains fit into one of two overarching categories: a head high and a body high.

So what is the difference between the two? Which one is better? How can you determine which strain will give you which effects? Keep reading to learn more and get the answer to these questions!

 

What does a ‘head high’ mean?

While you have likely heard the term ‘head high’ before, you might not know what it means. Essentially, it refers to the psychoactive effect that cannabis can have on the brain and mental condition. Normally, even if you are partaking in a strain that is geared toward both a head and body high, you will feel the effects of a head high first. 

With a head high, you will usually experience feelings of euphoria, happiness, and pleasure. Depending on the strain, you might also see a boost in your focus and energy levels, too. The strains geared toward a head high tend to help with certain disorders such as depression or anxiety. 

As is a rule in cannabis consumption, dosing is important. The right dose will have you feeling the desired effects as described for that individual strain. However, an overconsumption can lead to paranoia and anxiety for a short stint of time. Since this is clearly not ideal, it is best to start with a small amount and work your way up.

 

What does a ‘body high’ mean?

On the other hand, a ‘body high’ is what you feel in your body when consuming cannabis. Typically, you feel light-limbed or experience other physical side effects. Either way, it is meant to relax and soothe the body. 

Common effects of a body high include experiencing relaxed muscles, lethargy, and sedation. Depending on what product you purchased, you could also feel tingly sensations or physical sensitivity throughout your body. Turning to cannabis strains that have a body high focus is a go-to for those who suffer from any sort of chronic physical pain, such as fibromyalgia or arthritis. It has even been used to help alleviate pain in cancer patients undergoing chemo. Also, because it causes sedation, it has helped those with insomnia. 

Again, paying keen attention to dosing is very important. The right amount of cannabis can trigger the desired effects, but taking too much can leave you couch-locked. If that is your desired goal, that’s great! However, if you’re simply seeking pain relief in order to get through various tasks, this might end up being counterproductive. 

 

Do Chemicals Influence the High?

Cannabis plants have many different compounds within them. How concentrated each compound is depends on which strain you have. It all varies, which is what makes each strain unique and creates different types of highs and effects.

Cannabinoids are located inside of cannabis plants. In fact, there are over one hundred different types of cannabinoids. When cannabis is consumed, these cannabinoids attach the cannabinoid receptors in our bodies, which triggers the different effects we feel. Not every strain possesses the same type or amount of cannabinoids. For example, one strain might be higher in THC while the other is higher in CBD. 

Another thing that influences a cannabis product is the terpenes present. Terpenes exist in all plants, and have an effect on flavor and aroma. As an example, terpenes help to determine if a strain is more energizing and stimulating, or if it will be more sedating and calming. 

 

Sativa and Indica: Do They Have an Influence

Generally speaking, cannabis has three categories it falls into: Sativa, Indica, or a hybrid. Though with hybrids, they still tend to be either Sativa-dominant or Indica-dominant. While most folks believe that Sativa strictly means that it’s energizing and Indica means that it’s relaxing, it is actually not that simple. It does depend on the product. If you’re not sure, talk to one of our helpful budtenders at any of our dispensaries for assistance.

The Best Strain for You

No two cannabis strains are the exact same, making them unique – just like you! So what works best for you might not work best for the person standing next to you in line at the dispensary. It all depends on what you’re looking for. Take any medical conditions into consideration, or any goals that you might have in mind when using cannabis. 

For example, are you looking to feel more inspired or do you want a boost of creativity? Or do you need a bit of relief from joint pain or other issues? Getting the answers to these questions will help you to determine which is best for you!

What is CBG?

When discussing cannabinoids, THC and CBD tend to be the frontrunners, as they are the most commonly seen in products and prevalent within the cannabis community. THC and CBD exist in thousands of products, ranging from traditional flower to edibles to massage oils.

However, did you know that there are over one hundred different, unique cannabinoids out there? This includes CBG. While it is lesser-known, it is worth learning about for a number of reasons. 

And why is that? Well, first, we need to explore what CBG is and what it means.

 

What is CBG and how is it made?

CBG is short for cannabigerol and it is present in most cannabis strains, though it is usually only about 1%. That is why it is considered a minor cannabinoid. Cannabis plants produce cannabigerol acid (CBGA), which serves as a precursor to the three main cannabinoid lines: THCA, CBDA, and CBCA.

Specific enzymes work together within the plant to break down CBGA and route it to the three lines. Once those acids are exposed to elements such as heat or ultraviolet light, they become the cannabinoids we already know: THC and CBD. 

Recently, breeders have begun experimenting with genetic manipulation and cross-breeding plants in order to get a higher yield of CBG. By zeroing in on the best extraction time, scientists have been able to extract even higher amounts of CBG. Typically, the best extraction time is about six to eight weeks within the flowering cycle.

Potential Medical Benefits

Now that some of the technical talk and science is behind us, let’s explore why it’s important to look closer at CBG: the possible medical benefits. 

The human body is equipped with the ECS, or better known as the endocannabinoid system. The ECS works to keep the body balanced and achieve homeostasis, which is physiological equilibrium. 

In general, the endocannabinoid system helps to perform various functions specific to each area of the body, from the brain to the skin. As an example, when you are injured and suffering from inflammation, the ECS can help regulate immune cells to help limit inflammation and pain. 

  • Eye structures: Endocannabinoid receptors are especially prevalent with eye structures. CBG is thought to be particularly helpful with issues such as glaucoma because it reduces intraocular pressure. It is also a strong vasodilator and comes with the added benefit of a neuroprotective.

  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease: In a study conducted on rats, CBG was found to help decrease the inflammation characteristic of IBS. IBS affects over 200 thousand Americans each year and can have a debilitating effect and keep them functioning within normal life. By exploring CBG for IBS, it could make treatment more readily available and prove relief. 
  • Nerve Cell Degeneration: Huntington’s disease is a well-known degenerative disease that affects the brain. In a 2015 study conducted on mice with Huntington’s Disease, CBG was shown to protect neurons in the brain. This could mean new opportunities for older adults who have a predisposition to Huntington’s due to genetics.

  • Cancer Fighter: Great promise has been shown for CBG as far as its ability to aid in fighting cancer. Specifically, studies have showcased CBG’s ability to block receptors that can cause cancer cell growth. In a study conducted on mice, CBG was shown to inhibit the growth of colorectal cancer cells, therefore slowing colon cancer growth. CBG inhibited tumors and chemically-induced colon carcinogenesis.

  • Anti-bacterial agent: Ever since the 1950s, topical formulations of cannabis have proven to be an effective solution for skin infections, even if at the time researchers were unaware of the plant’s chemical make-up. Evidence has shown that CBG is also effective as a means of an antibacterial agent, especially against the aggressive and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or better known as MRSA. This is a huge breakthrough as many microbial strains have evolved and become resistant to several classes of drugs.

  • Appetite inducer: While being an appetite-inducer is also a health benefit of THC, harnessing CBG can be a non-psychoactive way of achieving such a benefit. Cachexia is the metabolic mutiny that occurs in cancer patients who see major weight loss and muscle mass deterioration. Research has shown that a form of purified CBG was able to be an appetite stimulant in rats.

  • Bladder Disorders: When five different cannabinoids were put to the test against bladder contraction, CBG proved to be the front-runner and inhibiting muscle contractions. Because of this, it could be the future of preventing bladder dysfunction disorders.

 

As more and more research is conducted on CBG, we could very well see new products featuring this particular cannabinoid so that it is more readily accessible to the public. Being able to include CBG could mean more advances in cannabis for medical use and an all-natural way to treat some of the disorders that we explored above.

Overall, CBG is also worth exploring because of its non-psychotropic characteristics. A psychotropic is any drug that has an effect on behavior, mood, thoughts, or perception. This would make CBG a great candidate for potential use as an antidepressant, treating psoriasis, and even for pain relief.
