Seattle weed is potent, good, and fully legal. You do need to be 21 or above to buy it, so be ready to show your ID in the pot store. Now you can start shopping.
There are two types of the cannabis plant: sativa and indica. Each type produces a different high. Sativa gives more energy, while indica is more relaxing, so your choice would depend on the time of day. Most of the weed available is a hybrid of the two.
The legal weed you’ll find in Seattle is quite strong – it contains more than 20 percent THC on average, with some strains exceeding 30 percent. THC is the barometer of strength of the product. It isn’t the only factor though. The cannabis plant’s aromatic essential oils, terpenes, are just as important, accounting for the taste of the product.
If you don’t feel like rolling a joint and don’t have a pipe, you can buy a pre-rolled joint. This is the perfect option for tourists. They are sold in singles or packs. We recommend paying more because it’s easy to hide low-quality weed in a sealed joint. Don’t get infused joints in any case—these can be inferior weed concealed by an extra dose of cannabis oil.
If you don’t want to smoke, you can go for one of the many weed-infused products. These include chocolate weed, coffee with weed, bud-laced peanuts, and more. It’s important to check the label to see how many milligrams of THC each serving contains. Experts recommend beginning with 5 or 10 milligrams of THC and then waiting about 50 minutes to see the effects. If you aren’t high enough, you can always eat more weed.
In Washington, you can only smoke on private property. If you’re staying in a hotel, ask if you can smoke on its premises. They do have the right to refuse even though pot is legal.
