What are the benefits of having a Medical Marijuana Identification Card (MMIC)?
While we do NOT require an MMIC for you to shop in our stores, there are some benefits to having one. Please note, an MMIC is NOT THE SAME as a doctor’s recommendation. For more information, please check out this article explaining the two and how to obtain each one. (https://thehighnote.com/blog/dispensary-tips/mmic-and-doctors-rec/)
Benefits of having a valid MMIC:
- You are exempt from paying state sales and use taxes.
- The amount of cannabis you can possess and grow is more generous – up to 8 ounces of dried cannabis flower and 6 mature or 12 immature plants if you’re growing as compared to recreational consumers who are capped at 1 ounce of dried flower and six plants.
- You also have access to a greater number of products and dispensaries, as not all jurisdictions in California have allowed for the operation of recreational cannabis dispensaries and certain products are medical only.

What are terpenes?
Terpenes, often referred to as the essential oils of cannabis, are oils secreted by the cannabis plant. Each strain has a unique make up of terpenes and it’s these terpenes that create the aromas and taste profiles.
There are hundreds of different terpenes in cannabis but the most common are Myrcene, Pinene, Limonene, Caryophyllene, Linalool, Humulene. Terpenes are not unique to cannabis and you can find them in fruit, herbs, and other plants. Myrcene, for example, is found in highly fragrant plants such as mangoes, hops, bay leaves, thyme, basil and lemongrass.
The science is still fairly new on how terpenes contribute to the effects felt when consuming cannabis. Terpene content varies from strain to strain, grower to grower, and plant to plant.

Where can I consume cannabis?
Consuming cannabis in public is still prohibited. You should consume cannabis in a private location, like your home. It’s also illegal (and dangerous) to drive or operate heavy machinery while under the influence of cannabis. When in doubt, call yourself an Uber or Lyft.
How do I know how much to take?
Everyone’s tolerance and preferences are different. When you’re starting out, start slow with low doses of THC. Gradually up your dose as you get more comfortable with how it makes you feel.
What are the best products for beginners?
It depends on your preferences. Our budtenders are happy to walk you through your options. Whatever form you choose, stick to a low dose, start slow and gradually build up to larger doses.
Edibles are great if you don’t like to smoke, you want to be discrete, and you’re looking for something that tastes like a treat! Edibles do generally take longer to take effect – anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours. The effects usually last longer than other forms as well. Edibles are a great entry point but knowing your right dose is extremely important. 2-2.5MG of THC is a good dose to start with. Most people find that edibles that have CBD as well THC produce a more well-balanced effect and are therefore great for beginners.
Vapes are another great option for beginners. They’re very easy to use, they’re discrete, and the effects hit quickly so it’s easier to figure out your ideal dose. Start with a vape that has a higher ratio of CBD to THC when starting out.
For the cannabis purists, pre-rolls are a great option. They’re already rolled and easy to light. Pick a pre-roll that has a lower THC content along with some CBD. Mini pre-rolls are a good option for beginners – you won’t feel guilty if you don’t smoke the entire thing.
