In 2018, my home state of Michigan became the first midwestern state to legalize both medical and recreational marijuana use.
- Now, anyone over the age of 21 is legal to possess up to 2.5 ounces of cannabis.
We can even grow up to twelve cannabis plants at home. I’ve tried growing my own flower with very little success. Ever since I started shopping at the dispensary in Muskegon, I’ve gotten picky about the quality of the weed I smoke. It is such a treat to buy dried flower with no sticks or seeds mixed in. All of the products are safely and securely packaged, tightly sealed for freshness and clearly labeled. The label provides the THC percentage, name of the grower, name of the strain, weight and recommended dosage. Plus, the dispensary carries nearly 100 different strains from some of the most popular producers. I can buy everything from Peanut Butter Breath and Purple Haze to Gorilla Glue and Girl Scout Cookies. I have my choice of indicas, sativas and hybrids that are sun grown as well as greenhouse grown. Every product at the dispensary is lab tested and third-party verified. They offer a really incredible selection of dense, carefully cultivated buds. They aren’t dry and crumbly or sticky but offer the perfect texture. I am always impressed by the rich color and smell. The coating of trichomes on the surface ensures a plentiful supply of cannabinoids and terpenes. The bright orange pistils are proof that the buds were harvested at the peak of maturity. I know that I’m going to enjoy a smooth burn.
