The bongs, pipes, bubblers and vaporizers are ultimate accessories for any marijuana users. But buying weed in an illegal city can cause you big loss. Many pot shop owners take advantage of this situation and try to rip off the consumers. There are times when you’re cheated and you’ve no option left to recover your loss. We all want to avoid this situation but don’t know how to do this and be on safer side. This article will show you some bitter realities of marijuana store owners ripping consumers and things to follow before you buy pot smoking accessories wisely without getting cheated.
Smoke Shops functions in a restricted area of legality and they hide themselves when things come to consumer service and refund policy. The smoke shop owners use several tactics to cheat the costumers unlike other normal retail stores. They make sure on how to avoid situation when comes to refunding or replacing the products. You’d be fortunate if the smoke shop gave you in-store credit. If you pay money using credit cards or check instead of using hard cash, the cannabis shop owner knows your identity and he might use it against you. There are cases when marijuana consumer has big-money argument with the staff; the staff indirectly blames the grower as annoying person unless the grower leaves the stores.
Many head stores often lie regarding the information on the quality and origin of their marijuana smoking accessories like pipes, bubblers and bongs. Roughly, all head shops claim that their smoking goods are either made in Canada or USA. But the reality is that many products are made using dangerous materials, sweatshop labor or bad manufacturing process. Not only is the product made of inferior quality it also endangers your health due to use of toxic materials, plastic, glass shards. These things can negatively affect your health. You should never ever use a plastic, metal or wood item to smoke cannabis because they are not safe for health.
Especially in states where medical marijuana is not legal, there are chances where smoke shops can actually be police fronts or under surveillance. Sometimes police uses undercover cops into head or pot shops. You can’t really trust the store staff because this might call for unwanted police visit to your house. This same applies to online stores-if you have any disputes beware they know your email address.
Do proper research on accessories you are about to buy or before investing $$$. The store owners must provide you with exchange or refund policy, if he fails to do so give a second thought before buying the accessories. You can visit different weed stores before purchasing the products to understand the whole working of the shop owners. If you’ve have some bad experience, share your story with different marijuana community and hence the quality marijuana shops will be awarded!

I love growing marijuana and to get best buds, I read different marijuana grow books, talk with other marijuana grower and most importantly watch growing videos. Sometimes for marijuana growing, I count for the hydroponic store advice as well. But there are times when the store owners give us bad information that can ruin your marijuana growth cycle. We all have sometime come across stores that convince us to buy different brands for which we never demanded. There are times, when my store tried to sell me a specific brand fertilizer that had spoiled my marijuana plant. Is that something really good they want to sell or there is some hidden benefits of the store owners. Let’s find out here.
After visiting different hydroponic stores, I have found out some hidden realities that every marijuana grower should be aware of. Few stores have particular agreements with prominent hydroponic producers to sell off their brands to consumers. Through this, many store owners get financial inducement to push specific brand over other. Most stores owners mostly focused on earning profits rather than selling good products. Some hydroponic producers put sales quotas for different stores. They provide store owner with specific kickbacks, refund and erstwhile rewards. Due to such financial benefits, the stores request their customers to buy products which give them higher returns. That’s quite standard practice of most hydroponic retailer.
Tips and Strategy:
Here are tips and tactics for marijuana grower looking for fair hydroponic store advice
- Try to spend time in hydroponic store and observe what method they are following for selling products to growers. There are times when you see store employee routing costumers with specific brands and chanting its benefits.
- Politely ask the store owners if they receive any kickbacks or refund while selling specific brand or promoting products.
- Try to get specific knowledge about the product that store owner recommends you. This will help you get more knowledge or know the honesty of the adviser.
- Check out the store’s exchange or refund policy, mainly for buying marijuana growing goods. If the store owner is confident of selling or recommending of something great products, ask him to offer you an instant refund if the product that does not work well. If he deny offering you with the refund or exchange policy, than there is something hidden. Avoid buying such products.
- If you’re trying new products for the first time, buy the smallest containers. Use that products on marijuana plants and pay close attention. Observe and see whether the product is producing bad or good results effect on your marijuana plant. You can also ask for free sample before buying the new products.
- You can visit various hydroponic stores and ask similar questions. Do research on products recommended by most store owners and talk with your grow friends before you purchase the product.
- Follow the hydroponics store company websites. If the company gives you a professional website which speaks to their consumers as a marijuana cultivator and gives tons of marijuana growing information, that product or company gets extra credits.
