Baby boomers (those born between 1946 and 1964) are rediscovering cannabis and the industry is taking note of this demographic. However, like everything else, time has exerted its influence on marijuana and the baby boomers would be well advised to keep the following important tips in mind when consuming cannabis.
The cannabis of today isn’t the same as what was available decades ago. Plant breeding has yielded cannabis strains that may have more than triple the THC content which was found in the marijuana of the 1970s. It is therefore advisable for you to be cautious when you are just starting out on your “boomerang” journey of reigniting your love for a joint.
Select the Dispensary Carefully
Baby boomers would also be well advised to take their time as they select the dispensary from which to buy marijuana. It is better to select an establishment which has a knowledgeable “budtender.” Such a person will help you to navigate your way through the huge array of cannabis products that are now available in the different dispensaries or retail outlets.
Know the Outcomes You Desire
A knowledgeable budtender can only go so far in helping you to get the right product. You need to make it possible for this person to help you by deciding the effects that you would like to experience when you consume the cannabis you buy. The plant breeding processes mentioned earlier have resulted in the development of different cannabis strains for different purposes.
For example, some strains will calm down your mind as you get ready to sleep while others will reinvigorate your mind and body while you get set for some physical or mental exertion. It is therefore crucial for you to know what experience you want so that the budtender can point you in the right direction.
Learn the Lingo
The cannabis industry has come with its own unique language that one must learn in order to avoid making mistakes. For example, you need to know how “cannabis flower” differs from cannabis “edibles” or “concentrates.” The budtender may help to explain some of the new terminologies you encounter as you explore the new world of marijuana, but it doesn’t hurt to invest some time online learning the language of the industry.
Think About Your Current Medication
It is also helpful to consider how any medication you are currently taking may interact with cannabis. For example, cannabis may increase the uptake of some of the medication you are on, and this may increase the side effects of that medication. To be on the safe side, take the precaution of talking to your doctor first before you consume cannabis.
The cannabis industry, including companies like FinCanna Capital Corp. (CSE: CALI) (OTCQB: FNNZF) and Generation Alpha, Inc. (OTCQB: GNAL), hopes that each baby boomer attains the results for which they try cannabis.
