How To Save Money On Your Weed Monthly Expenses
When things transition from being sold as illegal products to being sold on the commercial market as regulated products, the general idea is that prices will drop, supply will rise, and demand will be regulated. For weed, this is not exactly how things turned out. As it became legal in countries all over the world, prices of the cannabis plant and its byproducts have skyrocketed. Moreover, the accessories that are needed for this hobby are not cheap either. For those who use cannabis for its medicinal benefits, or simply for recreational purposes, it is becoming an increasingly expensive way of life. Here are a few things you can do to make it a bit more economical.
1. Dispensary Deals
If you happen to be in a place where cannabis isn’t legal yet, then it can be quite difficult and expensive to get your hands on some good product. In countries such as Canada, where it has been legal for some time now, there are a lot more options. Among these, dispensaries tend to be the best choice in terms of price and variety. Additionally, it’s quite a safe option, since dispensaries are required to disclose what’s in their products. However, to get even more value out of your purchase, keep your eyes peeled for dispensary deals. Some run a different deal on each day of the week, others have a deal once every two weeks or even once a month. If you get lucky, you could find some very high-quality buds at very good prices.
2. Buy Online
Recently, with the adjustments we’ve had to make for a pandemic-oriented life, there has been a steady rise in the number of online cannabis suppliers. If you know what to look for and how while shopping online, you should have no problem finding a reputable seller in your area. While dispensaries are good enough, when you buy your weed online, not only do you get better prices but a much more comfortable and safer shopping experience as well. Online dispensaries have a lot more variety; most of them source fresh products from around the world. Secondly, you don’t have to step outside of the comfort and safety of your home. You are also bound to find some kind of offer that will benefit you on such websites since they usually tend to have dealt more often than their physical counterparts.
3. Grow Your Own
If you have a bit of time and some willingness to learn about plants, then why not grow your own? Even a single plant can produce enough dried marijuana to last you several days if not weeks. All you need is some basic equipment and some knowledge about how to grow weed, and of course the seed of your favorite strain. However, methods don’t vary a lot with strains and the general technique is the same. Also, you can use other parts of the plant to create oils and other kinds of products that all have THC in them.
If you want to save yourself the trouble of supplying yourself every other day and constantly looking for the best prices you can just buy in bulk and stock up. If you don’t smoke frequently, then get your friends together and make purchases collectively. This way you can get better prices and you won’t have the problem of not being able to find that elusive strain again. The same strain will be in stock soon, but it takes a few weeks for the product to go from seed to consumable bud. All you need are some airtight jars and the cannabis will be as good as new even in a few weeks’ time.
