Adult Use

Also known as: Recreational

What does “Adult Use” mean?

Legal cannabis not designated for medical purposes is often called recreational or adult-use cannabis. Recreational users consume cannabis for a pleasurable altered state of consciousness, similar to the use of alcohol or tobacco. Laws for recreational and adult-use often vary from state to state, and in some cases, they can vary between cities. To enter a cannabis storefront for recreational products in the United States, you will need to be at least 21 years old and present a valid, unexpired state ID.

Example usage:

“The weed I buy is considered adult use, but I'm thinking of getting a medical recommendation.”
