Ask a Stoner: Are All Discounted Weed Products Old or Crummy?
Westword
Dear Stoner: If weed or edibles are on sale, does that mean that they're old, or that they just suck?
Devlin

Dear Devlin: Clearance items, sales, BOGOs — there’s always a reason for them, and the goodness of a store owner’s heart ain't it. But while most of the bigger price cuts are linked to poor performance or a nearing expiration date, you can still find good value or a few gems. And even if those gummies are stale, the THC still works. Who’s eating anything infused with distillate for the flavor, anyway?

Cannabis deals aren't always linked to poor quality. Sometimes a dispensary’s supply cultivation grew too much of a certain strain, or a general manager overestimated how many edibles the store would sell over the holidays. There are also new brands trying to get a foot in the door, and offering products at a significant discount is a fast way to do that. Be a discerning shopper, and take advantage.
