The Scarlet Reserve retail dispensary has a conditional license to sell cannabis. In March, we applied for NJ Micro-Cannabis Retailer. It is with great pleasure that we announce our acceptance. Our CBD store has been operational for over two years. We are one of the first 100% Latina Owned Micro Retail stores in the State.
Are you a Matawan/Abeerden resident looking to get into the legal cannabis industry? We are looking to hire and train staff to become knowledgeable and friendly budtenders who are ready to make the transition from CBD Dispensary to Recreational Adult Use! For more information, please email [email protected] or contact us here directly!
What is an Adult-Use (Recreational) Cannabis Store?
The term “adult-use” comes from the notion that not all patrons of a cannabis dispensary are consuming cannabis solely for recreational purposes. The use of cannabis goes beyond recreational or medicinal reasons. The term “dispensary” refers to shops that sell recreational marijuana as more states legalize it. More people are pivoting away from language leftover from the days of “medical-only” legislation.
Adult-use shops require fewer prerequisites than a medical dispensaries. Although there’s plenty to know before you set foot inside one of these legal cannabis storefronts::
- You must be at least 21 years old to purchase cannabis from an adult-use store.
- Your valid, unexpired state ID is your key to the kingdom of cannabis. When in doubt, bring your valid, unexpired passport. (Emphasis on “valid and unexpired.”)
- Many stores have menus to peruse on their website or while you stand in line. Among the various ways menus can be organized, flower, concentrates, edibles, topicals, etc., are the most common. Note that the best cannabis isn’t always the most expensive or have the highest THC%.
- There are great budtenders on the medical and adult-use sides of the cannabis industry, but generally speaking, a recreational dispensary budtender does not have the time to devote 20 minutes of undivided attention to each customer like many medical budtenders will. This doesn’t mean a budtender won’t educate you or share sincere recommendations; rather, adult-use storefronts are grab-and-go locations generally designed for accessibility and convenience. And just as liquor stores can have sommeliers and/or regular checkers, cannabis dispensary associates can range from verbose horticulture majors to basic “customer service representatives.”
