Re: The one and only legal cannabis thread

Looking for the cheapest legal weed? Head to Oregon, according to study.

Quote:
The Beaver State is home to the lowest average price of dispensary cannabis at $214 an ounce, according to an analysis by Perfect Price, a company that tracks the prices of a variety of goods including groceries, cleaning supplies and cannabis. The company looked at menu prices for cannabis flowers from about 6,000 dispensaries in six states with more than 200 dispensaries: Oregon, Colorado, Washington, Arizona, California and Michigan.

Re: The one and only legal cannabis thread

That has to be Oregon's medical prices. I bought at two different places in Oregon last month and one had (honestly the best weed I've ever smoked, but will never buy at this price again) stuff at $110 a quarter and they had stuff at $125 as well. Then the other place ended up being $100 a quarter. I can get potent, outdoor grown stuff for $140 an ounce in WA, and the stuff that competes well against Oregon's best is $250-$280 an ounce. What are you other people paying for legal medical or recreational stuff?

Re: The one and only legal cannabis thread

It's usually ~$80-$100 for 1/4 by me in Southern California.

I've seen concentrate prices vary quite a bit, from $50-100 per gram. I've bought some stuff towards the higher end, so I'm not sure if the lower priced ones are any good.

Re: The one and only legal cannabis thread

Usually $10-15 a gram for recreational MJ in King County, Wash., where everything costs a little bit more. I've scored some great deals on some great-tasting outdoor stuff this fall. One shop was selling $100 ounces at one point. Prices seem to be inching back up a bit as the supply from the outdoor harvest thins out, so there definitely is a little bit of seasonal fluctuation going on.

Wow, that's seems high. Concentrate is $25-$30 a gram in Vancouver and about twice that most other places.

Re: The one and only legal cannabis thread

So I'm going to be in Portland for a conference in a month or so. This is my first time visiting a "legal" state. Anyone know of the best shops to check out? I visited Amsterdam back in like 2007 but I'm pretty excited to buy legally on American soil.

Re: The one and only legal cannabis thread

Panacea is one of the absolute best you will find in Portland. If you are only getting a little for the trip, you can go there, or there are even a few places close to the airport. If you are driving, I'd still recommend heading across the river to Vancouver and Main St. Marijuana.

I'm fond of Puddletown Organics located in the same strip as the sketchiest 7-11 in town.

Thanks guys, I'll try to check them out. I won't have a car, but I could cab it I suppose? Anything closer to the downtown area?

Re: The one and only legal cannabis thread

Can anyone recommend a decent "thin" vape pen? I have a thicker one with button on it, but i like having the thin buttonless one for when I go out to the bar. I have been using a flavrx one (like this):

But the damn thing actually broke 2 of my oil cartridges. I can buy a generic one off ebay for $6, but then I see brand names ones going for up to $99! Not sure where the sweet spot is on these things. Is the $6 one good enough? Did I just have bad luck with my Flavrx one? Or do you really need to spend some money to get a good one?

Re: The one and only legal cannabis thread

I use a spinner II. They have different sizes and I use the bigger one. Lasts for days but it does have a button. They seem to cost around $10 or so on Ebay. The knockoffs are a 50/50 proposition, but the Spinner name seems decent. I did have some without the button but they killed a few cartridges so I stick with Spinner.

I assume that you are reclaiming anything from a broken cartridge, right? If not, let me know and I can walk you through it easy.

Nausicaa - post again when the time gets near. I may be in the area and if I am, I'll get you some stuff and bring it to you. What state are you from?

Re: The one and only legal cannabis thread

Yeah, I got a syringe and rescued all the oil I could. Are these things built to be swapped out all the time? Or is the assumption that once you put a cartridge on, you leave it on until it is gone?

Good deal. I swap them fairly often, so I'd suspect a bad batch or something.

Re: The one and only legal cannabis thread

kvrstoner, I checked out Panacea today at your recommendation. Great shop, the bud tender was very friendly and helpful, and I picked up some top notch flower. Thanks!

Re: The one and only legal cannabis thread

Awesome! Incredible weed. Make sure you check out MainStreet MJ in Vancouver for great prices on shatter. They had 90%+ THC and were $24 a gram. Unfuckingbelievable. That's cheaper than the street was a year ago, supposedly.

On reclaiming from broken cartridges, usually you just remove the mouthpiece (it kinds of just pops off) and then there is a little rubber thing that goes between the cartridge and the mouthpiece. Remove it and you can get a needle down into the the cartridge and extract whatever is left. Then take it to a cartridge you know works, repeat, and inject the concentrate into the good one.

I noticed it is about noon, and I don't want to work more today, so I'm going home and getting baked the rest of the day.

Re: The one and only legal cannabis thread

Vermont votes to legalize

And now for something stupider than I could imagine.

Quote:
Opponents said Vermont should not be legalizing another drug at a time when the state, like many others, is fighting a surge in opiate abuse.
Bringing in cannabis will actually fight the surge in opiate abuse. Opiate abuse is generally by prescription. And it has already been shown that states with medical marijuana have seen about a 25% reduction in prescription painkiller deaths.

Fucking morons. As though the answer is to continually put people in jail where we can't keep the opiates out either. Fucking brilliant.
