how to buy from leafly

We do not own or operate any of the businesses on our site and we do not sell any cannabis products directly. Our goal is to help people find the cannabis strains and dispensaries that best match their particular needs.

Normally, we would suggest that you use Finder to find a local dispensary and contact them, but if there is no option for medical or adult-use cannabis in your area then, unfortunately, we’re unable to point you in the right direction.

Alternatively, you can find a variety of items in the Products section of our site. However, you will have to visit the brand manufacturer’s page directly in order to locate retail locations or purchase these items as regulations vary.

If you’re lucky enough to live in an area that allows you to smell flower before it is packaged, you have an advantage. Smelling flower is the best way to determine its terpene profile. The more pungent the aroma, the more terpenes are present. You want it to smell loud!

Ensuring that your weed has ripe trichomes allows you to experience the flower at its peak ripeness, if you will.

Characteristics of quality cannabis

A THC-dominant flower that is lacking diversity in terpenes and cannabinoids will produce an experience that is one-dimensional, short lived, and maybe even anxiety-provoking.

Proper storage can delay this process, but nothing will completely stop it. So be sure to check the harvest date on your flower before purchase, as the chemical complexity is dependent upon it—you’re making sure the compounds responsible for the entourage effect are still there!

So, what is the difference between that $20 and $60 eighth of Purple Punch? Why spend the extra cash? To answer those questions, we have to take a look at the characteristics that define quality cannabis.

Another way to look at it is that when you pay more for quality cannabis, you are paying for the compounds that are not THC. Unfortunately, since very few of these compounds can be found on the label, it can be difficult to determine if the product you’re buying is worth the extra cash.
