“Adult-use” is a term for a business where cannabis is sold with relatively few regulations, compared with the list of rules that the typical medical-cannabis dispensary operates with. It often implies the recreational use of cannabis. In order to enter an adult-use cannabis store, you must be at least 21 years of age. You must also provide valid identification that is valid and not expired. A valid passport may also be used.

Many adult-use stores have websites providing up-to-date information on various strains of cannabis, whether in concentrate, edible, or topical form. Medical-cannabis stores will offer one-on-one time to provide information on their cannabis products, but adult-use stores don’t always have the time to devote to their customers in this way. Adult-use stores can be seen as a quick stop-off point for picking up cannabis, much like a typical liquor store where you go in, purchase alcohol, and leave. It’s best to do some research before you go, as some of the staff have a fairly basic background in cannabis.

An adult-use dispensary can be trusted to a higher degree than some random person selling cannabis on the street. The product is more regulated and your health is one of its priorities. It’s a business like any other. The company provides a product, and if that product is a good one, the customer will be more likely to come back for more.
