You probably know these things already- but in a new situation, being prepared can be very comforting. To begin your experience, have an ID ready at the door, bring cash, or use an ATM at the dispensary. Also, check out the daily limits on concentrates, edibles and flower here. That will get you started, and help guide you smoothly and quickly through many a dispensary. Also, make sure to not to consume in public parks or anywhere publicly visible, as that is not legal in the state of Oregon.

Have an open mind
Your first time experiencing Cannabis may be frustrating, to say the least. It’s hard to know what exactly to look for till you experience a variety of products. For example, some people exclusively drink wine, beer or hard liquor, while other are less discriminating, drinking a variety depending on the mood. Flower, concentrates and edibles are just as different from each other, as are the different products within each category. For those who are more variety seeking, the plethora of options will continue to excite you, but for someone looking for consistency in their cannabis experience, it is important to remember it might take a little while to experiment, and find the right strains for you.
