Always choose quality over quantity
Quality weed may even last longer because less of it will get you higher than a normal amount of just okay weed. Plus, you’ll enjoy it so much more.

Before you smoke, eat a mango
This is one of our lesser known stoner tips, but it’s so cool! Many people claim that if you eat a mango 30-40 minutes before your sesh, the effects will be even stronger. Worth a shot.

Clean your glassware regularly
Seriously, no one wants to hit that ashy pipe or that bong with week-old bong water. Kosher salt and rubbing alcohol is the perfect combination for cleaning any of your glass pipes or bongs. Just be sure to dry it completely before using again!

Don’t smoke and drive
Unless you want a DUI. We’re just looking out for you.

Every time you leave us a positive review on Weedmaps, Google, Facebook, or Yelp, a puppy is born.
Okay maybe we got this from one of our favorite fellow Sacramento dispensaries, but it’s probably true.

Get a beta fish

Joke around – Everything is funnier to you when you’re high
That being said, it doesn’t mean that you’re funnier to everyone else.

People you wouldn’t expect are smokers
Cannabis isn’t just for hippies. Business execs, teachers, doctors, artists, parents, and more are discovering the medical and recreational benefits. Don’t judge a book by its cover!

Questions about anything cannabis related is welcomed by budtenders
Budtenders love to talk about cannabis – that’s why it’s their job! Don’t be afraid to chat with a budtender to learn more. They’re used to people coming in with all experience levels.

Recreational and medical cannabis are different
Medical tends to be a bit stronger, and recreational (or adult-use) is typically more designed for a fun time.

Sativas are your friend for motivation, focus, and energy
Want to go for a run, get creative, and feel motivated? Don’t reach for that indica. Sativas are known to be more uplifting and can provide a nice boost of energy for the creatively blocked.

If you’re not interested in getting high but want to experience the medical benefits of cannabis on your skin or muscles, give topicals a try! Talk to a budtender today about what’s best for you.

Vape pens are a great solution for discreet use
 In fact, many people are choosing vaping over smoking as their main consumption method.

Wait for up to two hours for those edibles to kick in
Unless you know what you’re getting into, you’ll definitely want to proceed with caution with edibles. They’re great for experiencing a nice, long, heavy high, but if you eat too much too fast, you could be in for a potentially uncomfortable experience. Follow the directions on your packaging, practice patience, and you should be in for a treat.

X-plore your dispensary
There’s nothing more enriching than getting out of your comfort zone. One of our biggest stoner tips is to not be afraid to try something new.

You’re never expected to smoke a certain amount. No need to feel like you’re being judged for not smoking enough or smoking too much.
The cannabis community and culture is a very accepting and nonjudgmental one. We don’t judge people for getting high from one puff, or needing a few dabs to get the job done. We all understand that people are at different experience levels, and don’t pass judgment or peer pressure.

ZzzZZzZZzz… Catch up on sleep with a powerful indica
Unlike sativas, indicas are the heavy, relaxing, and sedative of the strains. If you suffer from any sleep disorders or just want to chill out on the couch, try an indica strain.
