What to Expect on Your First Visit to Cal Verde – Belmont

by: Emma Thurston

We’re so excited to welcome you to Cal Verde! Maybe it’s your first time visiting us, or your first time visiting a dispensary at all! Either way, we’re here to make your experience wonderful.

We know that walking into a dispensary can be daunting – there’s a big menu with lots of choices, and you may not even know the right questions to ask if you’re an inexperienced user. Our goal is to make your visit with us fun & stress-free, whether it’s your first time or you’re one of our regulars.

Remember, you must be 21+ years old with a valid government-issued ID to enter. Your ID must be valid and government-issued – state ID cards, driver’s licenses, and passports are accepted as long as they’re not expired. Our front desk staff will visually verify your ID and then electronically scan it for verification, and then buzz you into the sales floor after that ID verification.

You may be simply picking up a pre-order and don’t need to do any more browsing – that’s fine! Head straight to the counter to pick up your order. But what if you’d like to browse, or aren’t sure which products are right for you? This is our time to shine! We never want you to feel rushed at Cal Verde. Browse our displays. Have a seat (those comfy-looking chairs aren’t just for show) and look through our menu with one of our friendly and knowledgeable budtenders. If you have an idea of what effect you’re looking for, we can help guide your experience with product recommendations and consumption methods. One of the most exciting things about the cannabis industry is the incredible innovation happening with products – there are so many great items hitting the shelves all the time! We would be thrilled to walk you through the latest products and how to use them, or to go through the differences in strains to find what might be the right fit for you. Whatever your level of experience, the team at Cal Verde believes in meeting you where you’re at and making sure you leave happy.

In Massachusetts, there is a legal daily limit to your cannabis purchase. Don’t worry, if you place an order on our website you’ll be alerted if you exceed the legal limit, and in-store our budtender will let you know if you’ve exceeded the amount. The limit in Massachusetts is 1 oz of flower per person, per day. This 1 oz of flower translates to 500 mg of edibles or 5 grams of concentrate (including vapes), and you can mix and match up to that legal limit.

For checking out, we’re able to accept debit cards and cash. Credit cards are not accepted at cannabis retailers. We do have an ATM on site for your convenience.

Remember that just like alcohol, you can’t have an open container in your car ride home – this means no broken containers or a package with contents missing. And of course, there is no consumption on-site or in the store. Cal Verde strives to be an excellent neighbor and we ask our customers to respect our communities and the law.

Remember, we’re here to help so don’t be afraid to ask questions and get the most out of your shopping experience. We can’t wait to see you!
