Imagine you’re a cannabis user living in California in, say, the 1980s. It’s not an easy time for you. You usually have weed on hand, but the only real way to know its quality is to smoke it.
You have a regular guy you buy from, but you dread having to seek out another resource if his supply dries up; and worst of all, there’s always the possibility of coming home from work after a hard day and realizing you’ve depleted your own stash, which means going through the rigamarole of calling your guy, hitting the ATM and heading over to his place across town to replenish.
Cannabis isn’t Thai food or a package from Amazon. It’s still a controlled, mind-altering substance.
If only the 1980s guy could see you now, sitting on your sofa, scrolling through your phone to the weed delivery app.
Los Angeles is the biggest market for legal cannabis in the United States, right at the geographical bottom of the largest legal state, and weed delivery is big business in a place where traffic is a primary source of stress and anxiety.
But there are a few guidelines everyone should keep in mind when getting cannabis delivery. Not all weed resources are created equal. Here’s a quick rundown of what the savvy sativa consumer (or if you prefer, the intelligent indica consumer) should know.
Find a Good Supplier
This seems like a no-brainer, but in the wake of legalization, it’s important to keep in mind that the landscape for marijuana delivery retailers is still in a state of, let’s call it flux. California only changed its law governing recreational use of cannabis a few years ago, and the legality of pot is still in transition – at least from a practical standpoint. People throw around the phrase “Wild West” for good reason. In an environment like that, it pays to shop around and find the best possible cannabis delivery service. Don’t throw a dart at a map.
