More people than ever before are considering dipping a toe in the recreational cannabis waters but have no idea what to expect or how to buy cannabis at a recreational marijuana dispensary for the first time. At Highwire Farms, we believe that the quality of that first-time experience is just as important as the quality of the products you purchase.

Common First-Time Questions

Purchasing recreational cannabis from a provisioning center (aka a dispensary) is usually an easy process. Still, new users often have a lot of the same questions. Here are some quick answers to typical first-time user questions:

If you feel more comfortable having some questions answered before visiting a provisioning center, we suggest giving them a call beforehand or checking out their website. The rules may differ depending on where you go since not every cannabis center is the same, but here’s what you can expect when you walk through our doors.

Comfort and Peace of Mind

Recreational cannabis hasn’t been legal all that long and for some it can be nerve-racking to buy from a provisioning center for the first time because a lot of people are used to thinking of buying cannabis as illegal or sketchy. We totally get that and want to put your mind at ease.

Maybe you’ve never tried it before – or just haven’t tried it in a while – and don’t know where to start. We get that too. The world of cannabis may be new to you, but you don’t have to be an expert to enjoy being a part of it. That’s one of the best things about Highwire. Our expert budtenders will walk you through and explain all we have to offer and more importantly, find what’s right for you.

A lot of our experienced customers come in knowing exactly what they’re looking for, which is great. They order online, pick up in-store – their shopping is quick and easy. Other folks come in only knowing a little or sometimes nothing at all about cannabis, which is also great! We love it when people have questions and want to know more about cannabis because we love talking about it.
