Pretend you’re new to cannabis and you’ve heard that it can pretty much fix (or enhance) whatever ails you. But you’re too chicken or live too far in the woods to go to an actual weed shop. Cloud Cannabis, a dispensary working to destigmatize and demystify the cannabis shopping experience, has a solution.
The online platform allows customers to receive virtual cannabis strain recommendations based on their preferred taste, effects, and potency. Just visit cloudcannabis.com and type in your wishes or needs. We did, and the answers were…enlightening. Select two “recreational effects” you’d like to feel (for instance energy, soothing, euphoria, giggliness, or calm); select up to two flavors (including berry, flowery, pineapple, and, oddly, cheese); and pick your desired strength of buzz (from very mild to very strong).
Your “AI Budtender” will select three strains you’re most likely to enjoy based on your answers (we got Wonka Bars, Wifi OG, and West Coast Sour Diesel). William Meneer, from Livonia, says, “I was a bit overwhelmed with the large selection, so it was nice to have an easy experience tailored exactly to me.”
