What is one big difference between visiting a recreational marijuana dispensary versus a medical marijuana dispensary?

Customers at the Planet 13 marijuana dispensary can purchase either medical or recreational cannabis. Weed is weed but these two are not the same and there a few differences between recreational marijuana and medical marijuana that we will discuss later. One major difference is that you will need a current medical marijuana recommendation to buy medical cannabis along with a photo ID. You just need a photo ID to buy recreational marijuana.

Here are some things to remember before visiting a cannabis dispensary.

Bring cash, a photo ID, and a medical marijuana weed card. It helps to be familiar with the general dispensary process. Not all cannabis strains are the same and some strains will have different effects depending on the individual.

Most of the time, a marijuana dispensary that is both recreational and medical will have two different entrances marked “medicinal” and “recreational”. If you are not carrying a current, valid medical marijuana weed card, don’t bother going into the “medical” entrance because you won’t be able to enter.

Upon entering the cannabis dispensary, there will be a person behind a glass window where you give your ID and pertinent documents. After your ID screening, you will be admitted into the dispensary to go buy your marijuana. There will be what are referred to as “budtenders” and they are there to answer any questions you may have about various cannabis strains and other questions related to weed.

What are the major cannabis strains and how are they different?

There are two major groups of cannabis strains but they are broken down to Sativa or Indica (or both which are referred to as hybrid strains). Generally, if you are searching for an elevating, stimulated high or a day high, Sativas are the way to go. If you need a sleepier, more mellow body high, pick an Indica strain. Many cannabis strains are hybridized but they will be referred to as sativa-dominant or indica-dominant. Kush strains are known for their potent THC content and they are a subset of Indica strains..

How are Recreational Marijuana and Medical Marijuana Different?
As mentioned before, if you do not have a medical marijuana recommendation that is current and valid, go shop for some recreational weed.

Here are three benefits that medical cannabis has over recreational cannabis: cannabis possession limits, tax rates on marijuana purchased, and the number of weed plants you are allowed to grow if you do not live 25 miles within a marijuana dispensary.

1) You Can Possess More Medical Marijuana Than Recreational Marijuana

You can only purchase and possess 1 ounce of recreational marijuana at a time.

A medical marijuana patient can possess more cannabis than a customer buying recreational marijuana. A person buying recreational cannabis can buy up to an ounce of weed. A medical marijuana patient in Nevada can buy up to 2.5 ounces of medical marijuana every 14 days. That is really beneficial for a medical marijuana patient that may be dealing with limited mobility.

2) Buying Medical Marijuana Will Be Cheaper Than Recreational Marijuana due to different tax rates.
Recreational marijuana buyers are subject to a higher tax rate than medical marijuana patients. This is to keep medicinal cannabis at a reasonable and affordable price for medical marijuana patients.

3. Medical Marijuana Patients Are Allowed to Grow More Cannabis Plants
If a medical marijuana patient doesn’t live within 25 miles of a cannabis dispensary, that patient can grow up to 12 marijuana plants. Recreational marijuana users are limited to grow only 6 cannabis plants.

Is there an exception to the 25 mile dispensary distance rule in Nevada?

There are also exceptions to every rule. In this case, the 25 mile distance rule applies to dispensaries carrying a specific marijuana strain needed to treat someone. The distance rule also applies in a situation where if a medical marijuana patient can’t find a dispensary carrying the cannabis strain needed to help their medical ailment, they are allowed to grow their own marijuana.
