halloween weed edibles & recipes

Making Halloween Edibles

Marijuana edibles are some of the most potent means of ingesting cannabis, and quite the adult party favor at any Halloween Party! Just make sure your guests are well informed and prepared. For connoisseurs, they can be a real hoot. But for newer consumers, it can be a little intense. 

Step 1: Cannabutter

Cannabis butter, also known as cannabutter, is a primary ingredient when infusing edibles. Most edibles on the market use some form of cannabutter which produces the high that most people want. 

Cannabutter is the beginning point of your edible making journey. You're going to need a lot of flower for this step, so save on an ounce of weed to start your process.

When making cannabutter:

  • Use high quality cannabis as a plus
  • Use fatty, high quality butter (avoid using fat-free butter or margarine)
  • Grind your cannabis (Not too fine)

Shopping List For Cannabutter

  • 1 ounce shake (make sure to grind and decarboxylate)
  • 4 sticks of butter
  • 2 cups of water
  • A non-sticking baking sheet
  • Cheesecloth (or coffee maker)
  • Airtight glass jar
  • A big pot

When you are making your batch of cannabutter, it is recommended that  you use a 1:1 ratio of marijuana flower to butter. If this ends up being too much for you and want milder effects just use less marijuana. 

Your Basic Instructions For Making Cannabutter

  1. Grind All Your Flower Up: Use a grinder or your hands to break down the flower to have an even consistency. You don’t want a fine powder in the end.
  2. Decarb Your Buds: Start by Preheating your oven to 245ºF. Use a baking sheet and put loose, ground buds on it. Let it heat for 30-40 minutes. Every 10-15 minutes, stir the flowers slowly to expose all the flower buds to heat.
  3. Let Your Butter Melt: Put your stove on a low heat. Melt your 4 sticks of butter in a saucepan or slow cooker. Add 2 cups of water, this helps to regulate temperature.Add Your Cannabis Into The Mix: When the butter finishes melting, feel free to then add the decarbed marijuana.
  4. Let Your Mixture Simmer: Set the stove between 160-200ºF, let your mixture simmer on low heat for 2-3 hours. Don’t go any higher than 200ºF or you risk burning off precious cannabinoids from the mixture. Never let it come to a full boil.
  5. Strain Your Mixture: Put your cheesecloth over the jar. Then pour your cannabutter mixture through the cloth. You can throw away any plant material left behind.
  6. Refrigerate Your Final Product: The last step, put the jar of butter in your fridge. Allow the butter to solidify before cooking with it. Usually just overnight.

Vape or Flower?

Vape or Flower?

Posted by CANNASaver on Monday, 31 October 2022 in Canna Blog

Canna-newbies and canna-connoisseurs are typically flocking to dispensaries for one of two products: vape or flower.

Longer-established marijuana smokers often go with what they’ve grown accustomed to – smoking a bong, joint, or pipe.

And why not?! 

Flower is timeless and has aged well. Flower was probably the very first way you ever delighted by marijuana’s righteousness.

Nonetheless, as legalization sores high in the sky; vaping has gotten pretty famous over the long haul.

Vaping is often seen as the new-age alternative to burning a bowl. Many people love vaping due to its ease of use and discreetness. Vaporization is the process of heating cannabis oils to specific temperatures below the point of combustion in a vape pen.

So, whether you are an experienced THC hero or a rookie looking to broaden your horizons, you've started thinking, “So which is it then? Vape or Flower?”

Let’s discuss.

smoking flower vs vape

Differences Between Vaping And Smoking Weed

Even though marijuana flower options increase in potency continuously and only seem to climb up, vaping has become prominent in the cannabis industry for providing a grander punch than regular marijuana flower.

Vaporization works by warming THC molecules to a temperature between 250-400 degrees fahrenheit which is what creates the vapor you smoke. This interaction of precise heat and cannabis oil, optimizes the way in which your body intakes cannabis. It only uses enough heat to create a highly concentrated marijuana vapor.

While smoking works by requiring combustion to smoke THC, smoking flower produces cancer-causing synthetic compounds as a side-effect of said combustion. This can cause hacking, wheezing, shortness in breath, and various other lung problems.

Marijuana vape cartridges offer an alternative to the combustion of smoking and can lighten the coughing.

Which is Most Efficient: Vape or Flower?

Let's look at some of the most efficient ways to smoke weed and where vaping and smoking flower rank...

In Terms Of Potency and Your “High”

Recent studies have found that vaping does, in fact, give you a more fantastic high than smoking flower.  

In those particular studies,  different volunteers had their pulses constantly monitored, blood pressure was checked during their smoke sessions, and had blood drawn throughout the day.

When vaped, cannabis can create much more fantastical results than with regular ol Mary Jane. Vaping has been stated by some smokers to cause those individuals to feel a lot higher than by just smoking marijuana flower; for better and worse. Per THC dosage, flower just can’t compare to vape.

Last Good and Important Note About Vaping Cannabis: This absolutely means that if you are a first-time passenger on the cannabis vaping train, be aware of how much you're intaking and go slow. 

In Terms Of Cost

The financial aspects of smoking as opposed to vaping are really comparable. 

The definitive difference depend on several factors, most notably, the manner by which you choose to indulge in cannabis.

For instance, a gram of cannabis flower can cost roughly $7-$10. So, if you smoke one gram of flower consistently for seven days, expenses could amount to roughly $49-$70 per week.

On the flip side, many people consider vaping to be at a more reasonable cost than flower. 

With control of the temperature, you are able to give your a nice dosing of THC with any sort of flame. 

With vapes being considered more potent than flower, some people can get a gram of a cartridge to last longer; though cartridge prices vary.

Which is More Convenient: Vape or Flower?

Smoking marijuana is something you can do alone or to share as a significant method for mingling with your peers. Setting up your weed for smoking is social and fun. Ceremonial, even.

But vaping provides a more discreet experience than smoking. One of the most engaging parts of vaping cannabis is that it doesn't produce as strong of a smell as flower tends to. 

It is also easier to conceal and hide away if needed.

Which One Lasts Longer: Vape or Flower?

Which method is going to last the longest? Let's look at vape first.

Vape Cartridge Life Span

If your cartridge starts to “go bad” it won't taste as good, won’t be as potent, and can cause more coughing/headaches.

One way to check if it’s good or not is whether you notice the color and viscosity are similar to when you bought it. The oil inside the cartridge should be golden/amber in color. It also should have a general clarity to it as well.

Shelf life is typically a year in good conditions.

Flower’s Life Span

If your flower starts to go bad, you’ll notice a lot of it through smell. It begins to smell different and/or loses its smell altogether. 

The buds will start feeling different: either too wet or too dry. If the buds are wet, be careful for mold. Mold is the last thing you want to be smoking. 

If you store your flower in good conditions, it can last 6-12 months.

Which Is Healthier: Vaping Or Flower?

Though vaping is technically the “healthiest” of the smoking options, eating edibles is the only one absolute way to ingest cannabis without long term effects to your body.

Vaping’s Effects On Your Lungs

When you have a high-quality vape product, there are a few reasons why it may just become the product of choice for your marijuana needs.

As vaporizing cannabinoids promptly introduces them to your circulatory system and of course, your lungs. This enables you feel the cannabis much faster.  

Vaping is considered less damaging than smoking flower, but the real answer is, long-term data just isn’t known as of yet. Vaping is too new of a product of the market. Be mindful of low quality vaporizers that can appear just about anywhere. These are usually made with delicate plastic parts that you would rather not breathe in. 

Flower’s Effects On Your Lungs

Some might contend that marijuana smoke isn't as hurtful as tobacco smoke, though, this doesn’t absolve flower from its potential harm on your throat and lungs. 

At the point when flower combusts, the high temperature of the fire consumes a portion of the terpenes and cannabinoids.

Taking in smoke into your lungs can risk breathing in cancer-causing carcinogens.

So Which One Is Better? Vape or Flower?

In the end, ultimately which is better is going to be up to you. Both kinds of marijuana are different from each other. You will just have to choose which journey to go on. But never worry, both will get you where you need to go.

Vaping Provides:

  • Efficiency
  • A discreet experience
  • A punch of flavors
  • Absolute control over temperature

Flower Provides

  • More intense effects
  • No learning curve
  • Low maintenance

THCV Strains

Posted by CANNASaver on Saturday, 18 September 2021 in Thc

Maybe you’ve heard of a nifty lil’ cannabinoid called THCV.  Perhaps it was from your cool smoker buddy who always is up on the newest type of dab, extract, edible, and exotic flower there is to offer.  Maybe it was from your crazy uncle Eddie at the family reunion while he was smoking a doobie of high THCV flower at the same time shouting at his overgrown rottweiler to get off the table and eating the snack platter that Gamgams put out for everyone to munch on.  Or, perhaps you’ve never heard of it at all and have no idea what you’re reading about and this article is going to go into. 

If so, then check out our helpful and informative blog about THCV Edibles.

What is THCV?

THCV is a non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis. THCV is a cannabinoid.  THC and CBD are also cannabinoids.  While it is similar in chemical structure to THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol, the effects it can have on the body are much different.  THCV has a less psychoactive release in the brain than THC.  People who use THCV report having more energy, less appetite, and feeling less lethargic than consuming something with higher THC.  This is because the way our bodies are able to process cannabinoids is through our own Endocannabinoid system or (ECS). 

THCV, THC, and CBD all innervate with receptors in the ECS differently which produces the different reactions we have to consume them.  The ECS helps to regulate our physical and mental well-being, appetites, sleep schedules, and even hormones can be affected.

This article is going to walk through some of the top strains that have higher than average levels compared to other strains.  

Where Is THCV Found?

The origins of high THCV strains can be traced back to some OG landrace strains in Africa and surrounding areas. 

These strains are Sativa dominant and usually average at around 15%-23% THC as well. 

Sativas are known for giving more of a creative head high rather than a lethargic couch-lock that people associate with Indicas. 

People began to notice the differences between smoking different strains and started to seek out sources of the different types of highs.  Sativas became known as "the daytime smoke" because as many people say, it gives them energy, makes them feel more creative, and can do the opposite of munchies and help to curb an appetite.

Popular THCV Strains

Durban Poison

This is probably the most well-known strain on the list, or at least it was to us.  This strain is super Sativa dominant.  It is popular for a nice afternoon bong snap.  It gives off creativity and energy as for its main side effects.  It puts out a sweet and earthy aroma when smoked. Artists favor this strain for its highly Sativa effects.  It is usually round and chunky in bud structure and covered in trichomes giving it that frosty sugar-coated look.  This strain is one of our favorites down here at Cannasaver.

Pineapple Purps

Pineapple Purps is a strain that has grown in popularity over recent years. This strain has an average of 3:1 THC to THCV giving it highly psychoactive properties.  It has a sweet aroma that smells fruity and gives off a pineapple essence.  When smoked it tastes like sweet berry wine. It gives uplifting energetic effects when smoked and leaves you feeling with a head in the clouds high with bursts of energy.  This high THCV strain is used medically to treat anxiety, appetite loss, and mild cases of depression.  It possesses dark green leaves, slightly purple hairs, and is frosty with trichomes giving it a beautiful look and an even better smoke.

Power Plant

Power Plant is another African Sativa strain on our list.  This popular strain is a hybrid of Sativa and Indica with a split of around 65% Sativa and 35% Indica.   It has a higher than average amount of CBD making it a perfect blend of all different types of effects.  It will give you energy and also relax you.  Power Plant has light green leaves and a nice rich dusting of trichomes on the outer leaves.  This gives it a sweet and earthy aroma that tastes a bit like limes.  It’s known to give a clear-headed high with lots of energy.  

Red Congolese

With more people smoking cannabis now that it is recreationally legal in many states and medically legal in most of the states in the country, nonpsychoactive strains are at the top of people’s to-try lists.  This stain is no exception to that.  Red Congolese is a strain that gained popularity in California.  When grown it has an Indica like bushy structure but possesses the uplifting creative effects of a chronic Sativa.  It also has uplifting and creative effects when smoked or consumed.  It promotes mental clarity and has been used to help treat Alzheimer’s with promising results shown in this study.  This is a popular afternoon or wake-and-bake smoke for many people that struggle with nausea or tension.  

Doug’s Varin

This unique strain is known to suppress appetite due to its high levels of THCV.  It has been selectively bred over generations to gain the highly Sativa effects it gives.  It averages around 19% THC when tested.  It is a pure Sativa and boy does it smoke like one. Doug’s Varin gives off a piney, earthy smell.  It tastes like sweet citrus when smoked.  It usually flowers in 8-9 weeks making it a great choice for both indoor and outdoor growers. Along with appetite suppression, Doug’s Varin also is used to treat depression, muscle spasms, and stress. 

Thanks for checking out our blog on THCV weed strains. 

We hope you’ll go check out some of these strains at your local favorite dispensary soon!

The Most Cost-Effective Type of Edibles

Tinctures and syrups are the most potent and cost-effective way to ingest THC.

By volume, strength, and price, syrup, or tincture will be the strongest type of edible you can get! These are liquids infused with THC and CBD and have the highest concentrations. The flavors are pretty good and usually resemble a sweet concoction to help this medicine go down smoothly. The activation times range from 10 minutes to 30 minutes and the doses are measured by syringe or capful. 

You can find up to 1000 mg containers from between $45 to $70 dollars. A 100 mg syrup can be found for as low as $15!

Drinks contain the least THC with about 10 mg in a bottle but are convenient and great for lighter social flights. 

Typical Prices for Other Edibles

For the pan-baked experience, there is a plethora of brownies, cookies, bars, chocolates, and stroopwafels which are doled out in 100 mg containers are the tastiest and most versatile option. These baked goods go from $6 for a bar of single-serving chocolate to an average price of $22 for a full 100 mg package of multiple cookies or chocolates. These offerings have a sufficient amount of THC in the whole package to remind you of your aunt’s space cake, but ultimately you can decide how many bites until your preferred high. 

This article starts off with the lightest infusions and saves the heaviest hitters for last.

Your taste buds will dance when a Cannabis-Infused Cola splashes over your tongue. There are many flavors to choose from such as classic, orange kush, root beer, blue razz, and purple passion. These drinks are at the higher end of the scale as far as milligrams per dollar but are great for first-timers and social buzzes. These drinks cost around $8-$10. Drinks are usually portioned at 10 mg of THC content, which is the lower end of the spectrum. You can also find bagged teas infused with cannabis. There are also strictly CBD drinks with no psychoactive effect. Those are a little cheaper. Thursdays are a good day to quench your thirst and coupons range from 10% to 25% off. You can score some coupons from at these links.

What is the Best Form of Concentrate?

What is the Best Form of Concentrate?

Posted by CANNASaver on Sunday, 11 September 2022 in Canna Blog

Cannabis connoisseurs love their concentrates. Whether you are a professional dabber or someone looking to expand their cannabis concentrate horizons, maybe you have started wondering what the best form of cannabis concentrate really is.

Unlike some things we buy in our lives, marijuana comes in a vast array of delectable forms. This, of course, works its way into the concentrate realm as well.

The different types of marijuana concentrates you can buy grow as more and more states legalize recreational marijuana. The world of cannabis concentrates can be a little frustrating or intimidating to navigate to those who don’t know as much about wax concentrates.

So, kick back, relax, and let’s discuss cannabis concentrates. Let’s get you the best form of concentrate possible (and some deals).

rosin best form of concentrate

What Are Cannabis Concentrates Exactly?

So cannabis concentrates, simply put, are extremely potent smokables which you typically “dab”.

They consist of various marijuana compounds like terpenes and cannabinoids

Concentrates are very high in THC and CBD. They typically can reach levels up to 4x higher than any high-tier (like Private Reserve or Top Shelf) bud on the shelf.

Differences Between Various Types of Concentrates

The key differences in concentrates are typically shown through what extraction process is used.

This comes down to whether the cannabis concentrate is Solventless or Solvent-based.


Solventless extracts are concentrates which claim to have no solvents involved while extracting (contains no propane, butane, or similar solvent). These are considered the most “organic” form of marijuana concentrates.

Solventless concentrates consist of sauce, diamonds, ice hash, and rosin.


Solvent-based concentrates  use propane, CO2, butane, or ethanol to extract the cannabinoids and terpenes from the flower. The textures, characteristics,taste, and color in the final concentrate form are typically used to name each cannabis product. 

Solvent-based concentrates include: wax, shatter, crumble.

live resin best form of concentrate

Forms of Marijuana Concentrates

Armed with more concentrate knowledge, let’s talk about the different consistencies you’ll find while shopping for concentrates.


Wax is the most common type of marijuana concentrate. In the final form, waxes are usually sticky to the touch. Its yellow/amber color gives the concentrate a look like a kind of tree sap. Waxes are often extracted using butane and propane. 

Waxes are a good first step in using concentrate products. They tend to stay pretty consistent in potency so you will always know what you’re getting into. Wax also has the ability to retain the original terpenes to the best of its ability.


The shatter form of concentrate is by far one of the most popular forms of cannabis extracts.

Shatter gets its name from looking so fragile, it might “shatter”. When packaged, you can typically find shatter wrapped in parchment paper due to shatter’s stickiness.

Shatter’s appearance presents a clear, smooth, and solid final product. Naturally, the final appearance of the product saids everything you need to know about the quality of your concentrate. Look for a honey-like appearance and absolutely avoid blackened concentrates.

Ice Hash

Ice wax is a form of bubble hash which is made by utilizing frozen plant material.

Ice wax is made by using a specialized ice extraction technique which is solventless. The outcome of this technique is pure trichomes (kief). The concentrate maintains its natural aromas and terpene profiles.


Distillates are relatively new in the concentrates area of cannabis. Many distillate  products are much more discreet and convenient to use compared to other concentrates on this list. 

Distillates are known to be much more potent than some of the other concentrates on this list. On average, shatters and waxes are between 60%-75% THC while distillates can go as high as 99% THC. 

Though with the refinement process, natural terpenes are usually non-existent in the end product.


Rosin is another concentrate which is made without any solvents. Rosin uses compressed heat to extract concentrates from dried buds or kief. 

The appearance is golden and oil-like.  The final product takes on a shatter or even ice wax consistency. Rosin is the most natural concentrate and is popular for this.

Live Resin

Live resin is special because it is extracted using live plants. Using live plants leads to live resin being higher in terpenes in comparison to other concentrates. 

The live resin process starts with a freshly harvested marijuana plant which is then put into freezing immediately. Freezing the plant preserves the trichomes from being hurt by sunlight or other THC degrading elements.

Live resins vary in appearance from batch to batch but are normally golden in color.  Live resin is typically the go to for the most flavorful of the concentrates.

Diamonds and Terp Sauce

Diamonds and terpene sauce  actually come from Live Resin as its origin point. They use a freezing process which preserves freshness and cannabinoid profiles.

After freezing, the product of live resin is stored in jars. This process builds pressure in the jars. The pressure creates THCA crystals also known as diamonds. Diamonds sink to the bottom of the consistency. The rest of the consistency is juicy terpene sauce. Rich in flavor.

best form of concentrate for dabbing

So, What Is the Best Form of Concentrate?

It's hard to pick just one, so it really depends on what you're going are some categories to narrow it down.

For Aroma/Flavor

The reason many canna-connoisseurs love marijuana is for its pungent smells emitted through terpenes. Scents like diesel, citrus, earthy, floral, and fruity which full a nose with delight.

For those who enjoy these aspects of cannabis; concentrates like live resin, diamonds, and terp sauce will be right up your alley.

For Dabbing

Most of these consistencies are good-to-go for putting in a dab rig, vaporizer, nail, etc. Concentrates like wax or shatter are popularly used because of their ease of use. Concentrates like bubble hash, ice hash, or kief are not recommended to dab due to having plant material still present in the consistency.

For Purity

Distillates are the purest form of cannabis concentrate. The process which distillates use removes plant matter, terpenes, and other impurities. This leaves behind an oil that can hit potencies of 99% THC. 

For Potency

As mentioned before, distillates hit potencies of 99%, so won’t get much higher than that. Though, shatter and diamonds are up there trying to hit these potencies at 80% THC. Live resin is the third at THC levels hitting 70%.

One thing is for certain, all of these cannabis concentrates are a great choice for a good, clean high. What it all comes down to is what you desire out of your marijuana concentrate experience. You decide what is your favorite form of concentrate.

Most Efficient Way to Smoke Weed

Most Efficient Way to Smoke Weed

Posted by CANNASaver on Friday, 14 October 2022 in Canna Blog

From your traditional joint to modern-day vapes, there are countless ways to consume marijuana. Although the result is ultimately the same, which is, it gets you high, there are ways stoners can get the most out of their weed without sacrificing the high or breaking the bank.

Efficient Consumption of Cannabis

Exploring different ways of consuming cannabis can help you find ways of keeping your tolerance low and lengthen the time between purchases.

Regular marijuana consumption can be costly.

Depending on your tolerance and the cost of your chosen consumption method, there might be other ways of getting high that could be more beneficial to your bank account. 

Next time you visit your local dispensary, discuss with your budtender the different options and products available to you.

Don’t forget to check Cannasaver before you go, as we have new deals daily! 

Most Efficient Ways to Get High

You shouldn’t have to sacrifice weed quality or shell out big bucks the next time you visit your local dispensary. There are several ways to get high efficiently.

Let’s learn more below.

dab tool and wax

Reach new highs with dabs

Dabbing refers to the inhalation of vapors or smoke emitted from THC concentrates. This smoking method can produce strong effects as most concentrates contain up to 80% THC. If you choose to dab, you can get high with little product.

However, some dab rigs cost upward of $350 and require extra accessories such as a dab tool, blowtorch or power source, resulting in an even higher price tag.

Check out some current deals on concentrates:

Verano Sunrock Shatter 1g $65 - GreenGate Chicago

8 grams of wax and shatter for $80 - Lucky Monkey Buds II

$12.95 Shatter - Pure Marijuana Dispensary

Microdose and consider a one-hitter

A one-hitter is a slender pipe with a screen designed for intimation. One hitter allows you to smoke smaller quantities while still getting very high. Most one-hitters can only pack in a small serving of about 25 mg. Microdosing your marijuana can prolong your stash and save you money. Most one-hitters go for an average of $10, cheaper than other smoking tools such as vapes and dab rigs.

Check out some current deals for your one-hitters:

Flower ⅛ pre-packed $20/3.5g - Oz Cannabis, Detroit

$56 oz of House Choice Flower - Cannabay, Bay City

Discount Flower Oz $55.50+ - Urban Gardens, Kalamazoo

Vape your weed

Vaping your weed can produce an intense but short high when using flowers, so depending on the smoker, this might not be the most efficient method. Stoners can choose to vape both flowers and concentrates, making it versatile. Concentrates usually come in cartridges or shatter, which can be more potent than regular weed. Another benefit to vaping is that you can smoke the byproducts of your bud. Whether it is kief or resin, vaping can help you extend the longevity of your stash.

Discover deals on cartridges and wax/shatter here:

Vape Cartridges 1000mg for $30 - Skymint, Hazel Park

Grassroots, Bubba Diagonal 1g Live Sugar - EarthMed, Rosemont

500mg Verano Vape Cartridges for $55 - Zen Leaf, Naperville

weed edibles

Eat your weed with edibles

Edibles can be very potent, perfect for stoners looking to chase an out-of-this-world high.

Start with a small dose and gradually increase when you feel comfortable with the high. The catch with edibles is that it takes anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours for the high to hit, so be patient and don’t eat the whole thing at once.

Smokers with lower tolerance should be cautious about how much edibles they consume at a time.

Check out some deals on edibles:

25% off all gummies sale - Fingerboard Farm Market

Mindy’s Gummies $30 (20pk) - GreenGate Chicago

Incredible 100mg Chocolate Bars $40 - Cannabist Villa Park

weed flower

Get high with leftovers with shake

"Shake" is a byproduct of weed. Some leaves, stems or other parts in the plan fall off and form a dust-like substance. Shake can be extra potent and even accumulate kief on top, which can be more powerful than regular weed. You can even try making your edibles with Shake! Shake is cheaper than other bud and is a good option if rolling multiple joints or making edibles. 

Discover deals on shake:

2oz Shake $39.50 - Cannabay, Bay City

3.5g Shake for $40 Assorted Strains - Ascend, Montclair

$25 Trim Oz’s - The Healing Tree, Denver

Where to Buy Weed

Posted by CANNASaver on Friday, 09 September 2022 in Canna Blog

You feel the need to get yourself some weed. Okay, but where-oh-where can you buy bud and other pot products? That is an excellent question. 

You need to know how exactly to go about getting ganja. Stoner stores are called dispensaries or provisioning centers. For some medical patients, there are also caregivers who can get ganja on a patient’s behalf.

But what are the requirements for these marijuana merchandisers and pot providers? We’ll let you know the conditions under which you can buy from cannabis shops.

And what states have legalized recreational and/or medical sales? Is your state one of them? Do these states allow visitors to buy weed? These are all important points to ponder.  

Knowing the answers to all the above, you now must ask the most important question of all. That is, how can you save money buying marijuana? Cannasaver can definitely help you there!

Let’s start with how you go about getting some of the good stuff.

where to buy recreational weed

How To Buy Weed

Buying ganja at a dispensary isn’t exactly like going to the grocery store. There’s still a federal prohibition on pot. So, state dispensaries have strict rules they have to abide by. That means cannabis consumers have to know local laws.

In most states, there is an age requirement for weed procuring and use. 21 years old is the standard, generally.

Provisioning centers are licensed for medical marijuana, recreational or both. Some states offer medical and some also allow casual consumption. We’ll cover which ones offer what momentarily.

Those locations that require cards have set fees and procedures for obtaining them. Medical authorization requires a doctor’s certification for potential patients. Time frames for the process of getting a card vary.

Regardless of whether you are required to have a physician’s authorization to purchase weed store merchandise or not, you will need cash. The Federal prohibition mentioned above means banks won’t allow credit or debit card use.

Once you are legally compliant and have some cash to spend, you just need to find a dispensary to shop at.

So, which states have what kind of weed stores? Do you know what your local laws allow? Let’s look.

What States Can You Buy Weed In Right Now?

Here is a sampling of states and what they allow. Because some states’ laws are changing, the list is not entirely comprehensive.

Several states that were strictly medical to start have added recreational. In certain locations, new legislation may be forthcoming to legalize. It’s always best to check your local laws to be sure.

The following places have pot laws allowing purchases from provisioning centers.


• This state passed medical marijuana laws in 2010, with sales beginning in 2012.

Recreational sales were okayed in 2020.

• Though there are medical exceptions for minors, the age for legal use is 21. For younger people, parents or guardians can be appointed as caregivers.

• Limits include 2.5 ounces every two weeks for pot patients. It's an ounce per dispensary visit for recreational users. No more than 5 grams in concentrates, extracts, and edibles is the rule.


• Arkansas voted in prescribed pot in 2017, with the first licensed stores opening in 2019.

• Yep, you gotta be at least twenty-one years old.

• Thus far there is no casual use allowed. But there is a ballot initiative for recreational sales and possession in 2022.

• Restrictions stipulate 2.5 ounces of flower for cardholders every 14 days.

buy weed in colorado


• It was back in 2000 that Coloradans were allowed to purchase pot with a physician’s prescription. Recreational use was okayed in 2012.

• The legal age is, as in most places, 21.

• It is legal to purchase and possess no more than an ounce of marijuana for non-medical consumers. Those with a med card can have 2 ounces.


Medical marijuana was approved for the Land of Lincoln in 2013. Recreational weed followed in January 2020.

• The minimum age is the same as the above states.

• Card-carrying cannabis users can have can get 2.5 ounces every two weeks. All others can only buy and own an ounce. Between flower, edibles, and concentrates there is a cap of 500mg of total THC for both.


• This state has had pot for patients since 2014. Recreational ganja is on tap for a November 2022 ballot initiative

• 18 is the legal age here for medical certification. 

• 120 grams is the restriction for possession. That’s specified for every 30 days.


• The mitten state has both kinds of marijuana available. Cards for prescribed cannabis use have been available since 2009. Casual use was signed into law in 2018.

• You will have to have reached your twenty-first birthday to enjoy either kind of weed in Michigan.

• Whether a patient or just a stoner, 2.5 ounces is the max amount of pot you can possess at any one time.


Medical was legalized in 2014. Otherwise only edibles made from hemp with less than 50mg total THC are okay. Smoking weed without a card is thus far still illegal in 2022.

• If you’re 18 or over, you can get a prescription from your doctor in Minnesota and then apply for a med card.

• Qualified citizens can get and keep up to two and a half ounces of herb every couple of weeks.


• 2018 was the year that physician-prescribed pot was voted into law. This is another place with recreational use on the ballot in 2022.

• The acceptable age is twenty-one or older.

• Here you can have a generous 4 ounces per month.


• Ok, this is the last state we’ll cover. This jurisdiction, too, has medical use marijuana but nothing for non-patients. Yet. There is a proposal on the 2022 ballot.

• 21-year-olds and older can get qualified for med cards.

Qualifying people with a state license can carry 3 ounces, personally. They are allowed up to 8 oz. at home. 1 ounce is the restriction for concentrates and edibles cannot be more than 72 ounces.

Many other places are in the process of legalizing some form of cannabis. So, it’s a good idea to check out your local laws.

Is there anything else you need to know about getting yourself some ganja? Well, what about stoner shopping on vaycay?

Can You Buy Weed On Vacation? 

So, you decide to travel but want to toke. Can you buy weed with an out-of-state license?

The short answer is ‘sometimes’. Many states do allow marijuana purchases for tourists.

Those that have recreational generally will let a visitor purchase with a valid ID.  And many medical states will allow vacationing patients to use their home state certification to buy cannabis.

Of the states highlighted above, Arkansas, Nevada, and Oklahoma allow visitor purchases.  

Whenever you’re traveling, check the local laws to be sure.

At this point, the only thing left to learn is where to get great ganja deals.

Top Shelf Strains

Top Shelf Strains

Posted by CANNASaver on Friday, 19 August 2022 in Canna Blog

Seasoned stoners are always looking for ‘the next best strain’ to complete their stash. If you smoke regularly, you may be looking for something that’s a little more rare and has different terpenes and flavonoids than other stains. Whether you’re searching for quality weed to serve at an upcoming get-together or something new to try by yourself, we’ve got you covered!

We here at Cannasaver feature the best [medical & recreational] strain suppliers across the nation (within legalized states), with exceptional coupons and offers from the best dispensaries. We are your one-stop shop for all things cannabis and can help you find the best top-shelf strains on the market today. 

Weed strains come in four main categories, or shelves, if you will: 

In some dispensaries, however, top shelf and private reserve are usually put together, as both types are premium quality.

Top-shelf is a cannabis grade of the highest quality that has great potency, and it’s very easy to find. Most dispensaries have their featured top-shelf strains. It’s usually placed on the highest shelf of the store (hence the title), kind of like how alcohol is organized at bars.

Top shelf strains are cultivated either indoors or outdoors by experienced growers who know the conditions favorable for creating potent strains with great terpenes and flavonoids. 

macro photo of top shelf strain

Factors Determining Top Shelf Weed

Several elements affect the growth of top shelf weed. These include:


Selective breeding of quality strains over long periods yields better hybrids of higher potency.


Nutrient-rich, healthy soil with an abundance of microbes produces top-shelf weeds.


Regularly providing weed with nutrients like nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorous through fertilizers at the right time produces buds of high quality.

Drying and Curing

Proper post-harvest handling is key to preserving trichomes and ensures the genetically superior flower smells, tastes, and smokes like a top-shelf variety.

plant and bud of top shelf strain

Top-Shelf Strains You Should Try

Each dispensary will have a different variety of top shelf strains that they either perfected themselves or perhaps just carry classic strains. Here are some to try out, if you haven't (of course, options will vary based on dispensary):

Khalifa Khush

Khalifa Khush is a hybrid marijuana strain that was specifically bred for the rapper Wiz Khalifa. This is why it is also referred to as “KK,” “Wiz Khalifa,” or “Wiz Khalifa OG.”

This strain is said to descend from an unknown OG strain. It was previously unavailable to the public, but limited amounts have recently been made public through select partners.  

Khalifa Kush’s gives an active cerebral buzz ideal for morning and daytime use. It has a pine and sour lemon scent that is similar to that of OG Kush.


This is a hybrid strain bred by Seed Junkie Genetics and Cookies. It is named after its delicious aroma, which smells like warm pancakes. 

The strain has a buttered, sweet berry flavor profile and a batter-like aroma that reminds you of a fresh batch of pancakes. The high you experience from smoking Pancakes can be described as a relaxing head high. 

Pancake buds are short and bulky, with golden brown shades brightened by frosty trichomes. Patients needing medical marijuana use Pancakes to fight symptoms of chronic stress and anxiety.

Pink Certz

Pink Certz is a visual stunner that smells like hyper-flavorful pink candy mint. The strain combines The Menthol and Grape Gasoline to give you an instant mental vacation that helps get your head back in the game.

You can use it day or night, making it super versatile. Its flavor composition of mint, grape candy, and gas terps sets this strain up for boxes of cannabis trophies this year and the next.


Hey, Jealousy!

The Gin Blossoms knew what they were talking about – Jealousy combines two perfect versions of Gelato and Sherbert because that’s what the folks crave.

Jealousy offers everything you’d want from a JBeezy collection and is perfect for flexing on Instagram. Watch out for the evil eye, though, as Gelato haters are still gonna hate!

Strawberry Remedy #9

Exotic is all about taking risks and winning awards with new creations to heal the masses. It’s more than just GSC genetics folded back on each other like knotted bread.

Oregon’s Chalice Brands took first place in the Oregon Growers Club with Strawberry Remedy #9. This new strain is a rare 1:1 CBD: THC flower for that high-strung person in your life.

Trade that high-THC tachycardia with this Strawberry field x Dragon Desert Frost cross. Strawberry Remedy #9 has a refreshing strawberry smoothie taste that is perfect for a relaxing daytime yoga sesh free of anxiety.

Forbidden Mintz

This strain is a cross between Forbidden Fruit and SinMint Cookies bred by SinCity Seeds. Forbidden mint sports fruity flavor compounds of sweet cherry, passionfruit, mango, and pine. This sweet Indica strain brings about a reflective and chill state of mind.

Zkittelz Mintz 

After putting up with a tough day at work, loosen up with a rewarding after-work smoke courtesy of  Washington’s award-winning Three Rivers Cannabis (3RC).

These SinCity Seeds strain sports a creamy gas and sweet grapefruit finish. Zkittelz Mintz is a cross between Zkittlez and Animal Mints. It is the ideal strain to help get you through those short, bleak days. 

Gator Breath

This heady hybrid strain is a cross between a special Triangle Kush phenotype and Motorbreath. It has dark, chunky, and verdant buds that are sticky with trichomes. 

Consumers of this strain say that it makes them feel active, talkative, and tingly. Gator Breath has 1% THC and 26% CBG. Caryophyllene is the dominant terpene in this strain that gives it its gassy and pungent buttery notes.

Medical marijuana patients use this strain to help with insomnia and eye pressure. It draws its origin from the Jungle Boys. 

Kush Sorbet

Kush Sorbet is an uplifting, hazy, and hard-hitting strain created by crossing Triangle Kush with Sunset Sherbet. This dank and delicious strain provides your entire body with the most invigorating feeling.

It provides both mental and physical sensations of calmness and euphoria. Kush Sorbet packs a mighty punch, with THC levels ranging between 18.7%-22.7%.

Connoisseur Strains

Connoisseur Strains

Posted by CANNASaver on Monday, 15 August 2022 in Canna Blog

As cannabis becomes more and more accepted and popular, those who consume it (that’s us!) look to more than just a quick high with their weed. Yes, we’re “cannasseurs” if you will – the stoneyest (just roll with it) of stoners that look for things like terpenes, flavonoids, effects, and specific strains for specific pains (and other needs). In fact, several studies have linked cannabis to creativity amongst other things, and these are the reasons why it is so popular with us. 

Here are some other reasons why we look for certain strains.

close up of connoisseur strain

What “Cannasseurs” Look for in Strains

There are many reasons we turn to the wonderful weed, other than just getting stoned. Yes, we cringe when we hear people say, “Who cares what strain it is? It gets you high, doesn’t it?” or, “Oh, we just mix them all together.” EGADS!

Don’t they know that weed has so many other properties? If you’re looking for connoisseur strains, you’re looking for healing properties, anxiety-reducing properties, and much more. Here are some typical reasons us “cannasseurs” are looking for specific strains – either to promote, help with, or relieve certain issues:

Here’s a look at our top-ten best connoisseur strains:

Strains For Creative Focus

Blue Dream 

This strain is excellent for easing open the gates of divergent and creative thoughts. It creates euphoric experiences that often inspire the “hit the blunt” meme trend.

Blue Dream is Sativa dominant and is known for its light yet funky tropical aroma. It is a cross between Haze and Blueberry Strains. 

The strain has a fun, uplifting, and focus-inspiring effect that calms the flurrying thoughts in your mind.

Island Sweet Skunk

Island sweet skunk or Sweet Island Skunk is a Sativa dominant hybrid that greatly induces creative blood flow. Its genes are derived from Skunk, Haze, Grapefruit, and Northern Lights. 

The creative focus of this strain manifests through humorful observations and thoughts. These are the types of thoughts you’re not quite sure why they came to you, but they did, and they’re amusing. Expect to conjure even the most out-of-nowhere ideas with this strain.

Jack Herer

This strain has a pungent pine and citrus aroma that is as focused as it is distracting. Its sharp undertones promote awareness and alertness.

The Jack Herer strain is named after the famous activist Jack Herer. He is known for writing “The Emperor Has No Clothes,”; a treatise on cannabis and its legal standing.

The strain, like its namesake, evokes thoughts and considerations both actionable and poignant. Jack Herer owes its genes to the Northern lights, Shiva Skunk and Haze Strains.

Space Queen

Space Queen is a near-perfect 50:50 hybrid consisting of Cinderella 99 and Romulan strains. The hybrid pairs the calming body high of indica strains with the focus associated with energizing Sativa strains. 

After consumption, expect a euphoric body high that begs AND answers several questions, and the only person that can decide whether the answers are correct is only you. Welcome to space, Queen.

Strains For Creative Curiosity


Jillybean is an uplifting Sativa dominant strain that can help get you through periods of low motivation or writer’s block. This hybrid strain is perfect for relieving stress and lifting bummer moods, leaving you free to explore your headspace.

New information from the news, books or any other source of information you trust is also part of the experience, allowing creativity and curiosity to gain a tempered edge through our thoughts and behaviors.


The strain inspires rapid action accessible to all who wield it. AK-47 keeps the brain active and continuously inspires creativity and curiosity.

Strains For Creative Work

It has notes of refreshing mint with earth and citrus undertones. The high light body and energy boost XJ-13 delivers help increase the momentum behind our creative thoughts, free of stress.

Purple Haze

It is a potent blend of Haze and Thai strains that bring forth the creativity of psychedelic and the rhythm of 1960s rock and roll, launching consumers into their personal summer of love.

Purple Haze lends positive energy to the mind, knocking down bad moods and unlocking the highest potential of your senses.


This hybrid blend of California Orange and Skunk cannabis blends is perfect for inspiring an uplifting euphoric experience. The strain possesses a funky citrus aroma that incites creativity and captures attention.

Can Edibles Go Bad?

Posted by CANNASaver on Monday, 20 June 2022 in Canna Blog

Have you ever reached for some leftover stored in your fridge and discovered that it has become… bad? Bad as in moldy, smelly, and just plain ‘Ewww’! 

Not only is spoiled food nasty looking and tasting, but it’s also potentially dangerous. Food poisoning, after all, is a thing.

And the cannabis and other ingredients an edible can start to expire. Weed itself loses potency over time. And it is hardly immune to getting moldy. 

If you eat your hash brownies or weed cookies right away, no worries. But if you want to keep some for later, what do you do? How long can they last? Is there a way to store cannabis cuisine so that it stays fresh longer? 

Inquiring minds always want to know. So, we shall explore the problem of expiring pot treats further. And we’ll come up with solutions to keep foods featuring cannabinoids fresh longer.

First, let’s find out why edibles can get icky over time.

Do Edibles Expire?

Stating the obvious, edibles are food. And food tends to go bad after a while. It loses flavor, loses nutrition, and sometimes grows fur. 

Consumables are made of dead plants and animals and those things will deteriorate. Yet, good storage can postpone the inevitable, maybe even for months in a freezer.

Trigger warning if you’re germophobic, but germs are everywhere. Molds and spoilage bacteria will get into your edibles. Because your food is also theirs. It’s a circle of life kind of thing.

An airtight container and refrigeration are tested ways to keep perishables good. But storage has its limits and consumables can lose flavor and dry out. In colder storage temps they can even get freezer-burned.

The biggest concern with any cannabis product is actually loss of potency. That includes edibles. Storage of any ganja stash should be in a cold, dark place. Sunlight and heat accelerate deterioration.

So, food loses flavor and cannabinoids lose efficacy. Since edibles are cannabinoid-infused cuisine, they can indeed go bad.

But does bad mean potentially harmful?

Can Expired Edibles Hurt You?

So, we’ve established that weedy treats are food. What’s the worst that can happen if you eat expired stoner snacks?

Any consumable substance, cannabis-infused or not, can become contaminated with bacteria. E-coli is one of the most common bacteria that can cause food poisoning. What’s so bad about food poisoning?  

Toxic organisms in the things we eat can cause sickness. You might experience symptoms like fever, stomach cramps, nausea, and vomiting. That can lead to a trip to an urgent care clinic or even the emergency room.

Extreme cases of food poisoning have led to death.

It may seem like excessive worrying, but spoiled food is nothing to shrug off.

Even if the eats aren’t yet poisonous, the cannabinoids contained in pot cuisine can lose potency. Talk about a major buzzkill, right?

That means reduced buzz and benefits. This means you have to eat more of it to get the same effects. That could lead to overeating and potential weight gain.

So, all this leads to our next question. What’s the lifetime of ganja goodies?

How Long Are Edibles Still Good?

Baked goods do have some shelf life. Lots of people have cookie jars, right? And your fridge likely has a few leftovers, hopefully, stored in airtight containers.

So, for infused foods what does that mean?

Manufactured marijuana fare may contain preservatives. Those are chemicals added to consumables to make them last longer. That is a consideration. It depends on whether it’s a dispensary-bought or homemade confection.

Homemade hash brownies, for instance, will likely last less long than manufactured ones.

As to how long 420-food stays fresh, that depends on the ingredients. 

Dairy products tend to last the least long, only a few days

Similarly, most beverages are best if consumed within a few days of opening. Many baked products can be good for weeks if they’re put away properly. 

Candies last forever, suckers more than chocolates. Cocoa confections lose flavor over time.

You can use your experience with non-infused fare to gauge how long edibles are indeed edible.

For the potency aspect of the pot, it can be 3-6 months before the ganja grub might begin to decline. Again, assuming storage in a cool, dark place.

Now, to keep cannabis cookery tasty and safe, what constitutes good storing practices?

How Do You Store Edibles For a Longer Shelf Life?

We’ve talked about airtight containers and placing them in a cool, dark place. 

For most people, that means some resealable plasticware in the fridge. 

However, that doesn’t mean that you have to refrigerate. Make sure your storage space is not overly warm. Also, try to limit sunlight. If you're mindful, you can keep food at room temperature for a few days.

For short-term storage, a zippered plastic baggie or plastic cling wrap can work. Those options can keep cannabis goods from spoilage for days. Plastic offers some protection against air and bacteria.

Anything longer than that and thicker, hard plastic is better. So, keeping storage containers on hand for weedy treats is wise.

And if there’s room in your fridge, that’s the place leftover edibles should go. The cold and dark keeps the cannabis from degrading. Also, bacteria work more slowly in the cold, so that should keep mold and bacteria at bay. This will work for up to several weeks.

Storing anything for more than a few days or a couple of weeks should involve the freezer. Sub-zero temps pretty much prevent fuzz from forming on your food. 

There is a downside. The longer you store stuff in the deep freeze, the greater the chance it can become freezer-burned.

420 foodstuffs aren’t meant to last forever. After all, you don’t get any benefit unless you eat them. But if you do need to store some for a while, there are ways to do so safely and efficiently.

Now you need some marijuana munchies to store. Or eat all at once. That’s your call.

Look below to find out where you can get cannabis consumables at a great rate.
