How to be a Responsible Marijuana Consumer

By The Stoner's Cookbook

Whether you're using marijuana for medical or recreational purposes, it's in your best interest to be responsible. Leafly gives us a few tips to help you stay on top of things!

  • Choose the Right Strain

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Not all strains are created equal. Make sure you do some research about different strains before buying. Some will treat certain symptoms better than others & provide a different experience.

  • Choose the Best Consumption Method

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Tinctures, dabs, vaporizers, edibles…there are so many ways of using cannabis, but different consumption methods yield different results. Talk with your doctor/retailer to see what's best for you.

  • Storefront or a Delivery Service?

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Depending on your type of use, a delivery service may suit you better, but a storefront lets you see the product before buying. There are pros and cons for each method, figure out what works for you.

  • How Reputable is your Cannabis Provider?

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Like you would with any drug, make sure you're receiving it from a reputable source. Look up your dispensary/retailer online, read reviews, or go in for a visit & get to know the staff.

  • Your Cannabis is Medicine

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    If you're a patient, treat your cannabis as you treat other medications. Like many other medications, cannabis has different effects on different people, so don't share it with friends & family.

  • Properly Store Your Cannabis

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    To get the best results out of your cannabis, save it in an airtight container. If you’re buying dried marijuana, it’s best kept out of direct light. Also, keep your cannabis out of reach of others!

  • Don’t Use Too Much

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    While you can't die from an overdose of marijuana, there is definitely such a thing as too much. Talk to your doctor/provider about dosage, and be sure to heed their instructions.

  • Keep Product Away from Children and Pets

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Unless your children are medically authorized to use cannabis, keep them away from your marijuana, especially if you have edibles at home that can easily be mistaken for regular treats.
