Ways of Consuming Medical Marijuana
Aunt Mary’s MJ has been tested and approved and can testify cannabis is medicinal and should be freely available to everyone regardless of unjust laws. The soul reason we started this business.
Smoking Medical Marijuana.
Smoking is the most expedient method of consumption, with almost immediate effect and dosage controlled by the patient. This must be done as directed by the doctor.
Medical Marijuana Vaporizers.
A vaporizer is a device that is able to extract the therapeutic ingredients in the cannabis plant material, called cannabinoids, at a much lower temperature than required for burning. This allows patients to inhale the active ingredients as a vapor instead of smoke, and spares them the irritating and harmful effects of smoking.
Medical Marijuana Edibles.
Cannabis can be infused into butter or oil that is then cooked in food. Edibles, as they are typically called, usually take longer to take effect than smoking or vaporizing, often 20 minutes to an hour or more.
Medical Marijuana Tinctures & Tonics.
Cannabis can also be made into tinctures and tonics, which are then added to food and liquids, applied on the skin, or consumed directly in small amounts or by placing drops under the tongue. This is particularly useful when nausea and vomiting are present, such as when undergoing chemotherapy treatments.
Medical Marijuana Topicals.
Topical herbal medicines are applied directly to the skin or muscles. They include lotions, salves, balms, sprays, oils, and creams. Harborside patients report they are tremendously effective for skin conditions like psoriasis, joint diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, migraines, restless leg syndrome, some spasms, and everyday muscle stress and soreness.
Medical Marijuana Tea & Sodas.
Cannabis leaves, stems, and buds can also be used in making a medicinal tea. The process is fairly simple. As with other herb teas, boil the water, pour this over the leaves and stems in a small pot or cup, and let steep for at least half an hour.
Hash & Wax.
Hash is made by collecting the resin from the flowers of a female cannabis plant, also called trichomes. The primary active substance of this part of the cannabis plant is THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) along with other cannabinoids as well.
