Not so long ago, the cannabis buying process was as rote and choice-less as getting health insurance. You’d call your dealer, give him cash, and were handed whatever he had at the time. Indicas, Sativas, and everything in between be dammed.
Today, the choices are overwhelming. And in a state like Oregon, nearly limitless. Just like Netflix original content, it would be nearly impossible for you to sample and learn about every single strain available.
