If you are 21 and older in the state of California, you can legally obtain marijuana for recreational use. If you’re at least 18 years old, you can purchase marijuana for medicinal purposes, but only with a valid doctor’s recommendation.
Either way, San Francisco is home to several licensed weed shops where you can purchase the marijuana products you need. Here are a few of the products you can expect to find.
Also called “bud,” “flower,” and “leaf,” dried marijuana is usually sold by the gram or in increments of an ounce. Prices vary significantly depending on the strain.
Concentrates are created using an extraction process that removes the cannabinoids from the plant. They are usually much more potent than dried flowers.
Tinctures are prized for their therapeutic effect. They are alcohol extractions from the plant often mixed with other therapeutic ingredients. They are typically administered under the tongue.
Upon entering almost any weed shop, you’ll likely see displays of tasty foods and drink. These products are referred to as edibles, and they are infused with up to 10mg. of THC per serving.
Topical marijuana products come in cream, salve, and lotion form. Since they don’t really produce psychoactive effects, these products are usually advertised as treatments for things like skin conditions or aches and pains.
Californians are permitted to cultivate their own marijuana (with limitations), and most weed shops sell live plants and seeds to that end.
