LA is home to sunny dispositions and good weed. People have been asking us how we choose the flower we carry and how we choose the flower that lands on our top shelf. The Growcery has been serving Los Angeles for over 15 years. We’ve been in business for as long as we have because we know weed. Here’s what you need to know about finding top shelf flower in LA:
What Does Top-Shelf Mean Anyway?
Top-shelf cannabis is the good stuff. It’s a difference in quality you can see, smell, and taste. It usually has a higher THC or CBD content meaning the effects will be more potent. Sometimes it isn’t just the quantity of THC or CBD, and instead it’s the terpenes or flavors that are present in the flower, which impact how it smells and tastes. The kind of care that goes into cultivating higher-quality weed means it’s going to cost a little more, but you get what you’re paying for. Half of the price of this flower is driven by brand reputation.
Does Every Dispensary Have Top Shelf Flower?
Every dispensary may have a top shelf section or a most expensive product, but the price tag alone doesn’t make the flower top shelf. Quality will vary, so it’s important to look at the THC and CBD breakdown, the dominant terpenes, and reviews of the strains. If you already have a top-shelf strain in mind, you can check dispensary menus online to see if they sell what you’re looking for.
How Do I Spot Top Shelf Flower?
If you don’t already have a brand and strain in mind, don’t worry. If you’re looking for top shelf products, literally look to the top shelf. Businesses intentionally put their best products near the top of their displays because they know that’s where you’re going to look. If you’re unsure of which flower you should buy, any good dispensary will have knowledgeable budtenders on deck ready to help you make an informed decision.
So Where do I Find it?
There are tons of great dispensaries in LA, but if you’re looking for top-shelf flower and customer service from seasoned budtenders, you need to go to the Growcery to find what you’re looking for. We’ve got top-shelf brands you’re familiar with like Zips, Stiiizy, and Gold Coast, and some new flower you’ll wish you bought before it was on the top of everyone else’s shelf.
