Now that marijuana is quickly becoming legalized in many states, dispensaries are starting to be busier than ever. If you are a new marijuana card holder, you will soon be visiting the marijuana dispensary to get your products. Before you go, you need to know what to expect. Here are some things you need to know:

Know Which Products You Want

If you are new to a medical marijuana dispensary, you should know what type of products are offered and which ones you want to try. As you decide which products would be best for you, think about the effects you want to get from the product. Do you want to feel energized, relaxed, or feel some other way? You can speak to the employees at the dispensary to learn about the effects given off by each type of product.

Also think about flavors and scents. Marijuana products are available in a wide variety of flavor and scent profiles. You may be able to smell some of the products when you go to the dispensary to see which ones you like best.

In addition, think about the strain you want. Some products are not as strong as others, so keep that in mind.

Have Your Identification with You

Any marijuana dispensary will require you to show your identification before you can purchase any item. The best form of identification is your state-issued identification or driver's license. You also may be asked for your card that shows you are allowed to purchase marijuana products.

Bring Cash

If you plan to make a purchase, you should have cash on hand. Most all dispensaries only accept cash as a form of payment. If you do not know how much you should have, consider calling a local dispensary and ask the average price of the products you want.

Plan for a Wait

Many marijuana dispensaries are either quite small or very busy. You might have to wait before you can get in. Consider going to the dispensary at a non-peak time. The busiest times tend to be in the morning and the evening. If you can get there sometime in the middle of the day or late at night, your wait time may be less.

The wait may be even longer if the dispensary works one-on-one with the customers. You may not be allowed in until there is an employee available to help you.
