Demystifying Cannabis Misconceptions at New Standard

Welcome to New Standard

As Michigan’s premier cannabis dispensary, we understand the importance of shattering myths and providing accurate information about the world of cannabis. Today, we’ll debunk some common misconceptions surrounding this plant and its products.

Myth: Cannabis is a Gateway Drug

One of the most persistent myths is the belief that cannabis acts as a “gateway” to harder drugs. However, numerous studies have refuted this claim. The decision to use other substances is influenced by various factors, such as environment, mental health, and personal choices, rather than cannabis use itself.

Myth: Edibles Take Time to Kick In

While it’s true that edibles can take longer to take effect compared to smoking or vaping, the effects can be felt within 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on factors like metabolism and the potency of the edible. Patience and proper dosing are key when consuming edibles.

Myth: All Cannabis Strains are the Same

Just like different varieties of wine or beer, cannabis strains offer unique terpene profiles, effects, and flavors. At New Standard, we offer a diverse selection of top-quality flower strains, each with its own distinct characteristics. Our knowledgeable staff can guide you in finding the perfect strain for your desired experience.
