Learning About Diabetes Diagnosis, Treatment and Research

Welcome to my site, my name is Jess Indaja. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes after struggling with my weight throughout my teen years and adulthood. My doctor informed me about all of the dangers associated with my diet and exercise habits. I was encouraged to change the way I ate and moved in an effort to reverse my blood sugar problem. I made the changes, but still struggle with controlling my blood sugar. After going through this trying situation, I decided to make a site that may help others with problems associated with type 2 diabetes. I will discuss diagnostic procedures, treatments and medical research concerning this disease. I hope you visit often and learn all you can to control your type 2 diabetes or help others with this condition.

How Real Dispensaries Are Different From Those On TV

by Carla Hudson

If you've watched television shows and movies that feature dispensaries, then you probably have some preconceived ideas about what visiting a dispensary will be like. However, reality is rarely the same as television, and this is as true in the world of cannabis dispensaries as in any other. To ensure you're not shocked or taken aback when you visit a dispensary, take a look at these ways real marijuana dispensaries are often different than TV dispensaries.

You can't just walk in.

On TV, there are often scenes where a character or two are browsing the dispensary. Then, a friend walks right in the front door and joins them. In real life, it couldn't happen this way. Dispensaries are quite regulated in most states. There are usually security guards checking ID before they will let anyone in. Usually, this ID check takes place in a separate vestibule, and you only get to enter the main dispensary after you've been verified. Don't worry, though — this ID check is not scary, and as long as you have a photo ID and your medical marijuana card, you should have no trouble getting in.

The cannabis isn't just out for you to smell and grab.

On TV, there are scenes where characters are picking up and smelling various flowers from a display. They may try different cannabis salves or even sample edibles in the store. In reality, however, cannabis is generally locked up behind the counter. In some states, it is all pre-packaged, and you just buy a package. In other states, it is set out in bulk, but behind a counter where only the budtenders can handle it.

The budtenders are not high all the time.

TV shows like to portray budtenders as the ultimate stoners, always so high that they can barely talk to patrons. In reality, although many budtenders to use cannabis, they tend to be sober or near-sober at work. They are helpful and willing to engage with customers, answering questions and ringing up your purchases. Budtenders have a lot of knowledge about cannabis strains and the best ways to use cannabis for various ailments. They are not just there for the high!

Dispensaries in real life aren't too similar to those seen on TV. Luckily, though, they are friendly and welcoming places to find the cannabis you rely on. Visit one in person, and you'll soon learn about the magic of real cannabis dispensaries.
