Relying On Medical Marijuana: Why You Should Shop At A Dispensary Instead Of Growing Your Own

Michelle Hopkins

Relying on medical marijuana to manage your health can be an effective option. But even with a prescription or license, you can't just go to a pharmacy or grocery store in order to get the medication you need. You can grow your own or utilize a local medical marijuana dispensary, or do both. Even if you want to grow a little of your own medication, there are many reasons to shop at a local dispensary rather than growing everything you need. Here are a few of the most notable:

Save Time and Effort

One of the best reasons to shop at a medical marijuana dispensary to get your medication instead of growing it yourself is to save lots of time and effort throughout the year. Instead of having to plan the times of year that you'll plant your medical marijuana, worrying about fertilization and proper watering levels, dealing with pest control, and harvesting your plants, you can simply drive to your local dispensary shop to get the medication you need.

You don't have to wait months for your crop to be ready for harvest in order to maintain a necessary supply of your medication. And you'll avoid putting yourself in pain during the process of harvesting when you rely on a medical marijuana dispensary to get the goods you need.

Enjoy Oils and Edibles

It takes quite a bit of research, knowledge, and access to a variety of ingredients in order to make medical marijuana oils and edibles at home. But when shopping at a medical marijuana dispensary, you can access a variety of oil concoctions for your vaporizer as well as different types of edibles such as:

  • Hard and Chewy Candies

  • Lollipops

  • Cookies

  • Muffins

  • Brownies

  • Crackers

  • Breads

Enjoy mixing and matching edibles whenever you visit your local medical marijuana dispensary – you should never get bored with all the options.

Rely on Safe Products

It can be tough to ensure that your home grown medical marijuana products are safe from lingering pests and pesticides if you aren't an expert at growing crops. When shopping at your local medical marijuana dispensary, you can have the peace of mind in knowing that every product you purchase has been inspected and properly treated for pests. And pesticide levels are regulated through the state, so you don't have to worry about unnecessary exposure when using the products that you buy.

For these reasons and more, consider taking the time to stop in and see what your local medical marijuana dispensary has to offer.
