No Shortage Of Marijuana Deals Here!

An Industry of Deals

 
The marijuana industry has always revolved around deals, even when it was only in the black market realm. Everyone wanted to find the guy that would give them the most for their money, the strongest products for less, the highest quantity for the least money. Anyone that did know the guy became a hot commodity, and other sellers had to match the kinds of deals going on in their area. But now with medical and recreational legalization there are so many more companies and options than ever before, and the industry is geared to expand even further with new states starting medical and recreational programs as they will no doubt create new edible companies and strains to be tried.

Dispensaries have followed this example of offering similar discounts to the black market days, specific quantity breakdown so that customers can easily order what they are used to even without being familiar with a particular dispensary’s workings. If you walk into a dispensary and ask for an eighth, they’ll more than likely know what you mean. Most dispensaries offer a different deal every day, as well as weekend specials and holiday specific sales, allowing customers to gear their purchasing schedule to make sure they can always get some kind of deal that works for them, while at the same time allowing dispensaries to push specific products on specific days. This can get overwhelming considering the hundreds of dispensaries in any given market, but there is still hope for finding your perfect purchase.

If you are someone that is looking for the best deals there are now a few options for finding just what you need, local newspapers that allow dispensary advertising, dispensary and product company newsletters, and especially deal sites like this one, Cannasaver. Dispensaries can easily update their deals every day to make sure that their specials are constantly broadcast, each special complete with a printable coupon and information on exactly where you need to go to get it. It can also be somewhat more helpful than printed media, as often those sales can have expiration dates that may not even be printed on the ads themselves, and there are many dispensaries with similar enough names to have people walk into your dispensary with another company’s ad.

Deals are also even more of an important element in this industry because of the overpopulation of dispensaries in general, each one fighting to retain customer base rather than just bringing in the occasional big sale. In the past year recreational and medical prices on flower have fallen by almost half of where they were when I first started in the industry, and people are still looking to spend as little as possible to get what they need. Another reason they have become even more important is the recent change to purchasing limits, as companies really need to fight to make sure customers are buying edibles and concentrates from them instead of hitting their limit somewhere else. This is more specific to Colorado but has also been adopted as the default amounts by California.

So even if you just came here for the blogs, check out what this kind of service has the potential to offer you. You may be able to save more than you could have ever imagined on products you buy all the time, or even learn about something more affordable you didn’t realize existed. Sorting through individual ads can take far more time than having the ability to quickly narrow down your search for your next great find.

Buying Weed in Colorado

Posted by CANNASaver on Monday, 14 December 2020 in Canna Blog

Marijuana is widely available in Colorado. There are certain cities and counties which do not allow the sale of cannabis products, but you will not have to go far to find places where you can fulfill your cannabis cravings. If you’ve never done it before, buying weed in Colorado can be intimidating. What do you get? How do you know what to ask? Will I look like a noob? Don’t worry, here are a few things to know about buying weed in Colorado.

Buy weed in Colorado

Buying Legal Marijuana in Colorado

There are two types of dispensaries for buying weed in Colorado: Recreational and Medical. Many companies have dual storefronts as Colorado laws demand a separation of medical marijuana products from recreational store products. 

Buying Recreational Marijuana 

For recreational marijuana buying access is restricted to people over 21 years of age. If you possess a medical marijuana card you can start buying at 18 years old. For recreational marijuana, you just need your photo identification and your money and in the time it takes to get a coffee you can get an ounce from a dispensary. 

Buying Medical Marijuana 

By contrast, a medical marijuana card is not something you will just find on the street or come across by chance. It is a tool, available to those with medical conditions that must be obtained in steps. To obtain a medical marijuana card you must be a Colorado resident, visit a doctor, fill out the paperwork with the Colorado Department of Public Health, and wait for your approval. You will then receive approval in your email which you can print. 

Then you only need your card and your cash and you are on your way to finding the best-priced weed this side of the Mississippi River. 

Cannasaver has a page dedicated to this privileged segment of customers.

The Difference Between Buying Medical and Recreational Marijuana

The difference between recreational and medical marijuana is not the buds or concentrates. It is largely a difference based on price and quantities. 

Colorado taxes medical marijuana at a lower rate of just the standard state tax of 2.9% while recreational marijuana is taxed at 15% in addition to the standard state tax. 

The other big difference between medical and recreational marijuana legalities is the amount you can possess. A medical card carrier can possess up to 2 ounces of buds and someone who shops recreationally is only allowed up to 1 ounce. 

Cannasaver has a page dedicated to helping you find the best ounce deals. You can expect to pay a low of $39 for shake and up to $200 for top-shelf nuggets. Concentrates are also available to both medical and recreational customers. The same rules apply as with buds, medical cardholders can buy and possess more concentrates legally.

The Amount of Weed You Can Buy in Colorado

Dispensaries are heavily regulated and will let you know what your max carrying and purchase limits are for the day. Once you reach your limit for the day you cannot buy from the same place until the next day. Additionally, many places will only allow one visit per day even if you don’t max out your legal allotment. Plan wisely to avoid disappointment. 

Edibles, concentrates, and flower buds are all factored into the maximum purchase per day at any certain dispensary. You could max out on one of these products or select a combination of products. Your budtender during your visit will give you the best advice.

Carrying Weed in Colorado 

Another legality regards the way in which you carry your goods. The law requires “sealed” packages while traveling in public with your weed. Some dispensaries will charge you a few bucks for special bags designed with fancy “childproof” locks. Other dispensaries will simply staple your bag shut and the requirement is met. It may be tempting to rip open your bag before driving home but be aware that this could invalidate the “seal”. In the event you are examined by law enforcement there could be the question about if the seal is broken. 

Beware of traveling with open packages and be aware of heavy, “skunky” odors that could attract unwanted attention. In the state of Colorado, drug dogs are no longer used to detect marijuana and the smell of marijuana is not an automatic cause for the search of an automobile. Be sure that you are discrete when transporting from dispensaries to your private property to preserve your freedoms.

Weed in Public in Colorado

Consuming and driving is against the law. There are charges such as DUI for marijuana use when operating an automobile. If it is edibles or vapes or good old fashioned buds it is a requirement of the law that you do it on private property. 

Although it might seem fun to get high while skiing or hiking be careful as this could be a violation of state and federal laws as many of our favorite outdoor places are considered public lands.

Carrying Weed Outside of Colorado

Unfortunately, federal law does not allow one to cross state lines with marijuana products. This also applies to flying through Denver International Airport. It is illegal, although due to the decriminalization in Colorado and the city limits of Denver extending to the airport, it is rare for arrests to occur based on possession of Marijuana. Depending on where you are going, if caught with cannabis, the local authority will determine what charges, if any, should be brought. 

Reselling Weed

Another issue to be aware of is resale of marijuana is also against the law. Any sale of marijuana must be authorized by the state at a sanctioned dispensary. Not to worry about gifting your favorite stoner some buds though, as adults can still “gift” each other up to an ounce legally.

Be Responsible With Weed in Colorado

The moral of the story is that responsibility is required when dealing with the laws surrounding marijuana. Be careful, know your limits, and be responsible. There are numerous resources to explore to ensure you are aware of boundaries and laws such as CDOT’s website around drugged driving

Another great resource to consider is the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environments resources on getting a medical card.

Some activist events that cannabis lovers should consider attending to further the cause of access and decriminalization is the annual 4/20 rally in Denver civic center park. Also, consider writing your senator and house representatives to remove marijuana from the DEA schedule one drug list. 

End the war on cannabis and happy highs!
