As cannabis becomes legal across the country, the vast majority of Americans—maybe well over 90%—still haven’t been inside a licensed cannabis store. That probably includes you! That’s OK—cannabis stores are still a pretty new thing in these United States.
But that doesn’t mean your first dispensary visit has to be an intimidating or stressful experience. Just ask Dennis Norris II, co-host of the incredible—and incredibly raunchy—podcast Food 4 Thot.
We first met Dennis this February in Portland, OR while we were in town for the Listen Up podcast festival. Dennis, who prefers gender-neutral pronouns “they” and “their,” told me that they haven’t had many positive experiences with cannabis, and have never set foot in a dispensary. We ended up taking Dennis to Serra, this beautiful dispensary in the heart of downtown Portland to follow them through their first real dispensary experience.
Listen in as Dennis learns about a handful of cannabis products, including Serra’s new line of gumdrops, before eventually settling on the perfect product for them.
