Anyone Is Welcome

Don’t worry, there’s no stigma here!

If you are new to the world of weed, there’s no need to be intimidated. Or if you’re a seasoned cannabis user looking for a new dispensary, look no further.

AKGLD ensures you get the best quality products and the most professional service. If you go to this cannabis dispensary and are unsure about what to buy, they’ll be happy to assist you. Asking them questions will also help you understand what suits your tastes and desires best.

Pro tip: People who work at a dispensary are called budtenders! This is because the “bud” is the part of the plant you smoke.

If you’re looking for any accessories, such as bongs, pipes, or other paraphernalia, they’ve got you covered. You can also purchase pre-rolled joints if you’re not comfortable rolling one yourself. And if you’re interested in a little merchandise, they have that too.

When you go, be sure to have some cash on you, as lots of dispensaries don’t accept cards.

Alaska Cannabis Laws

In Alaska, you have to be 21 or older to buy and consume weed.

You should also be aware that the public consumption of cannabis in Alaska is illegal, but having 1 oz to 4 oz of it in your home is totally fine! Just be sure not to consume it if you’re planning to operate a vehicle.

If you are still unsure about any penalties, check out Alaskan cannabis laws to make sure you’re enjoying it safely!

The Basics

Weed is a great alternative to pills, tobacco, or alcohol. And bonus, there’s no hangover.

The two main cannabinoids in cannabis are CBD and THC, which are naturally found in the plant. THC is the psychoactive part of the drug whereas CBD contains relaxing properties. CBD by itself will not get you high, but can often be found in other products used for relaxation.

There are a wide variety of strains, but each strain is usually classified into three main categories; Sativa, Indica, or hybrid blends.

Indica (or nighttime weed) will relax you, reduce anxiety, alleviate pain, and sometimes make you hungry. Sativa (or daytime weed) will give you energy, help you focus, and boost your mood. As plants, Indica is known for its large leaves and short size whereas Sativa is known for its small leaves and tall size.

The hybrid blends will give you the best of both worlds with a mix of euphoria and relaxation.


Joints, bongs, pipes oh my! There are lots of ways to enjoy smoking weed. And AKGLD only sells top-notch products, so you know the weed you’re smoking is safe.

When smoking cannabis, the high can last anywhere from 1 to 6 hours and you often start feeling the effects quickly. To get a minimal high for your first few times, you want to smoke less than 10% THC. But to get yourself really feeling high, you want to smoke anything between 10% and 20% THC.

Some local Alaskan strains to try out include Alaska, Mercy Fruit Haze, Matanuska Tundra, Purple Aurora, and Alaska Thunder Grape. And yes, they’re as cool as they sound.


There is a range of edibles to choose from, it’s simply about your personal taste. Gummies, chocolates, drink mixes, candy, capsules, baked treats, the list goes on.

Edibles behave differently in your body than smoking weed. They stay in your system for longer because they’re being processed through your stomach rather than through your lungs.

Edibles can also take up to 2 hours to start taking effect, so make sure you know what time you ingest them. It’s important to note that because you may not feel the effects for a while, you should wait several hours before taking any more.

For these, you’ll also want to check out the THC content. A good amount of THC to start with for the first few times is anywhere from 2 milligrams to 3 milligrams.

Once you’re feeling comfortable with that, try anywhere from 3 milligrams to 10 milligrams of THC. This should give you a more noticeable high.

Take It at Your Own Pace

If you’re new to cannabis, always start low and slow.

It affects people in different ways, so beginning with a low dosage will let you know how it affects you. Start with a few puffs or bites of an edible and see how you feel. Monitor how many hits or milligrams of THC you’ve taken so you don’t go overboard.

If you begin to feel paranoid, anxious, or too high, try and relax. Drink water, watch some TV, or attempt to fall asleep. Next time, try a different strain or less dosage depending on the problem.

And if you try smoking and don’t love it, try edibles! If you try edibles and aren’t vibing, try smoking. There’s a form of weed out there for everyone to enjoy.
