How to Shop for Cannabis in Legalized NY

Weed officially became legal in NY back in 2021, but the actual cannabis system has had a pretty slow start over the past few years. Currently, there are 59 adult-use dispensaries located around the state, with only two of those sitting pretty in the Long Island area. Happy Days is proud to be one of the first legal dispensaries to bring weed to Long Islanders.

But how does buying recreational weed work in legalized NY? It’s pretty simple, really. Adults over 21 years of age can carry up to 3 ounces of cannabis and 24 grams of concentrated cannabis at any time. You can either pop into a dispensary to purchase products in person or go online to have them delivered. It’s your choice! You’ll see at least a 13% tax on each purchase, with the tax going up a bit for products with higher THC content. That means products like oils are usually going to be a little higher in price than edibles and beverages.

Growing weed is also legal for adults over 21 who are licensed to use medical marijuana. Anyone hoping to grow some for recreational use will have to stick to buying from a dispensary instead, at least for now.

Marijuana Benefits and Uses

Those who have been licensed for it will already know the health benefits of medical marijuana, but lots of people are still unaware of the potential benefits of recreational use.

Cannabis and Mental Health

Links between marijuana and mental health have been extensively studied, especially with the increase in recreational use following legalization. The impact of cannabis on mental health can vary from person to person, but research and testimonials have pointed to a number of potential positive effects, including:
  • Stress and anxiety relief
  • Improved sleep quality
  • Better moods

Cannabis for Pain Management

Many also choose to use marijuana for pain management. Its ability to provide relief to those suffering from severe or chronic pain conditions may be linked to one of CBD’s benefits and uses: reducing inflammation. The historical use of marijuana as a treatment for chronic pain dates back at least 4,000 years ago. It’s important to keep in mind that those suffering from any mental or physical health conditions should consult with a physician before indulging in recreational marijuana use.
