cannabis shops

The Batavia Town Board on Wednesday night voted to schedule a public hearing on a resolution that would enable the municipality to opt out of allowing cannabis retail dispensaries and on-site consumption sites through New York’s Marijuana Regulation & Taxation Act.

“I don’t think there’s enough information from the State of New York to enter into something that we could never get out of,” Town Supervisor Gregory Post said following the monthly board meeting at the Town Hall on West Main Street Road. “The bottom line is that we can always opt in to it when we have more details and it is something that we can administer.”

3 Differences Between Vaping Marijuana And Smoking It

vaping

Any cannabis consumer hoping to catch a stronger buzz without increasing the amount they spend should look into vaping weed instead of smoking it the old fashioned way.

One of the best aspects of consuming cannabis in 2021 is the fact that there are so many more consumption methods to choose from than there were several years ago. While stoners in the past may have been restricted to bowls and blunts, nowadays cannabis can be enjoyed using all types of elaborate bongs, pipes and vaporizers.

In recent years, no method has gained more steam among consumers than vaping. There’s good reasons for the rise in popularity, too.

18 states have legalized recreational cannabis. However, smoking in public is still illegal in most of them.

But cannabis lounges – i.e., the cannabis equivalent of smoking rooms, but cooler – have started to pop up in states across the nation. Wondering where you can find one? We got the scoop.

 

What Are Cannabis Lounges?

Cannabis lounges are private-owned safe spaces where cannabis consumers can go to legally light up, providing an alternative to smoking or using cannabis in public.

Pumpkin Spice Weed Vapes Here to Elevate Your Basic-Fall

Pumpkin spice flavoring has infiltrated almost everything we taste from September through November, including extracted cannabis.

Revel, a line of THC vaping products from Colorado dispensary chain Native Roots, has been adding various fruit flavors like blueberry and grape to THC distillate for some time, but the brand is now diving into more seasonal flavors.

A purified form of THC, distillate is devoid of terpenes, the compounds in marijuana responsible for the plant's smells and flavors. Although purists and cannabis lovers prefer the natural flavor of the plant, distillate presented an emptier canvas for Native Roots product development manager Karyn Burry, who experiments with different terpene combinations to flavor Revel's vape products.
