Visiting a dispensary for the first time can be quite exciting! But it can also feel a little intimidating and overwhelming. We want you to have an enjoyable experience for your first visit to a Colorado dispensary. Here are a few things you need to know before you walk through the doors.

Bring The Essentials For Purchasing

When visiting a dispensary, you want to be sure you bring all the right things so you can leave with the product you want. You are required to show your ID to your budtender before purchasing. Think of buying weed in the same way you buy alcohol. You need to prove you’re over the age of 21. Below is a list of accepted forms of identification.

  • An operator’s, chauffeur’s or similar type driver’s license, including a temporary license, issued by any state within the United States, District of Columbia, or any U.S. territory
  • An identification card, including a temporary identification card, issued by any state within the United States, District of Columbia, or any U.S. territory, for the purpose of proof of age.
  • A United States military identification card or any other identification card issued by the United States government including but not limited to a permanent resident card, alien registration card, or consular card
  • A passport or passport identification card
  • Enrollment card issued by the governing authority of a federally recognized Indian tribe, if the enrollment card incorporates proof of age requirements

The type of identification cards we do not accept are:

  • Offender ID Card
  • Expired ID
  • Tampered with, tattered, cracked, or broken ID
  • Student ID’s
  • Falsified ID

You’ll also need the proper funds to purchase cannabis at a Colorado dispensary. Most dispensaries do not accept credit cards. At Roots Rx, we accept cash and debit cards only.

Knowing What To Purchase At A Colorado Dispensary

Being a newbie, you might be feeling very overwhelmed about what to order. Don’t worry about it! Colorado budtenders are trained to help provide options for products that might work best for you. The only thing you need to know is what your purpose is for using cannabis. For example, are you looking for something to help you sleep better or reduce your anxiety? Whatever the case may be, this information allows you to give your budtender everything they need to know in order to set you up with the best products.

You also want to be honest with your budtender about your previous experience with weed. It’s okay to be a newbie. In fact, if you are, this is pertinent information to tell your budtender. If you have questions about strength and potency, budtenders can explain options and show you dosage options. They are ready to help and open to all questions.

You Are In Control Of Your Experience

Purchasing cannabis isn’t like any other retail shopping experience. You should never feel compelled to buy anything you don’t feel comfortable with. To ensure you get the experience you are looking for, be completely open and honest with your Colorado budtender. Purchase products you think will work best for you.
