What to Expect on Your First Trip to The Dispensary
May 25, 2020

Medical marijuana dispensaries in Missouri are set to open beginning in July of 2020. If you’re getting ready to visit a cannabis dispensary for the first time, you may be feeling a mixture of emotions. You may be nervous, excited, and a bit perplexed about what to expect. Today, we’re going to be providing a quick guide to everything you need to know before visiting a Flora Farms dispensary.

Expect to Be Carded

You will be asked to show the budtender both a valid state-issued ID and your medical recommendation (medical card) upon entering the dispensary.

Try Not To Be Nervous

If you’re feeling stressed or anxious before entering the dispensary, remember that the owners and employees at Flora Farms are very friendly, attentive, and understand that many patients may be nervous on their first visit.

You May Be Asked to Wait

As is fairly common in the medical marijuana industry, you might be asked to take a seat in a waiting room. In many states, state regulation requires dispensaries to serve only one patient at a time.

The employees behind the counter who will assist you are known as budtenders. They are not salespeople so much as they are attendants to answer your questions and help you make the best purchase for your needs.

Our budtenders have been expertly trained to answer your questions about how to consume products and what to expect from them. If you’re willing to share what you’re looking for and what experience you’d like to receive, they’ll even offer recommendations.

The bottom line: the budtenders are at your service, so leave your stress at the door and don’t feel rushed to make a choice quickly as you weigh your options.

Don’t Be Afraid to Ask Questions

Don’t be intimidated if you aren’t exactly sure what you’re looking for. One of the best ways to get used to visiting the dispensary is to ask your budtender any questions you may have.

Now is a great time to get recommendations on strains that might be best suited for your needs. Looking for something to settle your tummy? Ask. Looking for something to help you sleep? Ask. Our budtenders have been highly-trained in order to best serve you. Remember – no judgement here!
