First we saw the legalization of recreational marijuana in Canada, and now we’re seeing hints and signs that Buffalo is preparing to be a more pot friendly city. From weed rallies and CBD dinners, to the opening of dispensaries, there is a movement underway locally that is essentially anticipating the day when recreational marijuana is legalized in NYS. Another sign that Buffalo is getting weed friendly is the opening of The Botanist at 192 Seneca Street, downtown.
The Botanist, founded in Baltimore, MD, is a medical marijuana dispensary that is opening a number of locations throughout the US. You can check out their various locations on their Facebook page. While The Botanist will initially open selling medical marijuana, the anticipation is that it won’t be long before NY State joins other states that have legalizes recreation marijuana. When that happens, The Botanist in Buffalo will most likely be selling dabs, cannabis-infused beverages, topicals, edibles, cannabis oil, vapes, tinctures, CBD-dominant products, and custom blended strains of cannabis. All of these products, and more, will be doled out by The Botanist’s “budtenders”.
From The Botanist’s website:
When you step through the doors of The Botanist, you’re stepping into a world where science, nature, and health converge. We’re inspired by the possibilities for healing that manifest within a single plant, and that inspiration has led us to create a unique experience for every customer, whether you’re new to cannabis or well acquainted with its benefits.
Botanists of old were intrigued by the ways plants and people existed in the world alongside each other, and as their knowledge of the medicinal and nutritional benefits grew, so did their ability to help people. Today, we’re bringing that tradition to you, as a trusted guide to the healing power of cannabis. Other dispensaries might show you a menu of strains and end there — we’re here to help you find the one that’s perfect for you.
