More American states are legalizing medical marijuana since it's medical benefits have been largely known. In the states where it is legalized, people can obtain a "marijuana card", from a medical practitioner or an Osteopathic physician (called D.O.), that will either allow them to buy marijuana from an authorized dispensary or grow marijuana and share. The choice is completely up to the person. However, said person must first be of the legal age of 18 before he/she can be authorized to do any of the above mentioned. |
Unlike other medications that get taken either as pills, injections, drank as syrup or even drips, medical marijuana is quite different from them, as these drugs are usually taken in directly without it being processed. They're several different ways that medical marijuana can be consumed. These are:
By using a vaporizer, similar to a nebulizer, you can now heat the cannabis to a temperature below its combustion point, making it hot enough to turn to vapor but still able to release its main extracts. The substance is then quickly inhaled into the bloodstream, and exhaled. This is different from smoking because there's no need to take in huge chunks of smoke and hold your breaths. Instead, you should inhale lightly, exhale and repeat. It also doesn't make you smell of cannabis smoke as much as smoking it and its effects can last for up to four hours.
Pack a small amount of dried cannabis plant into a pipe, water pipe (bong), or rolling paper (joint/cigarette. Hold one end of the pipe and lit the other end. Then inhale the smoke from the mouthpiece at the unlit end. This is a cheap and easy way to get instant results. However, it can be harmful to your lungs and you smell like cannabis smoke. The best alternative is to consume little amounts of water every now and then while smoking. This would relieve your lungs and make your airways be less irritated.
It is well known that cannabis can be mixed in with cookies or brownies and eaten. And since the legalization of cannabis, scientists have been able to put it inside pills and tea for easy consumption. However, cannabinoids are fat-soluble. This makes it difficult in terms of absorption, depending on the metabolism of the patient. Therefore, cannabis butter is mixed with the fat-soluble cannabinoids to make it easier for digestion.
Tinctures or Sub-Lingual Sprays
These sub-lingual products usually comes in a small bottle. It is applied under the tongue via a dropper or sprayed in the mouth where it would be absorbed through the tissues of the mouth. The dosage is different from patient to patient, but it's range is from half a dropper to a couple of droppers. This is ideal for non-smokers, but usually more expensive.
When medical marijuana get processed to the form of lotion, ointment or poultice, it can be applied to a part of the skin for treatment of arthritis, inflammations and muscle pain. This is usually the case when most people choose not to inhale, smoke or eat the marijuana raw.
Note that it should be applied in areas where hair is not available. And hence, professionals recommend applying patch on the inner-wrist area, top of foot or ankle.
There's high risk of people getting allergic reactions due to this. Therefore, always remember to get it from a medicinal-grade marijuana plant with no risk whatsoever of chemical residues that could be harmful to the body.
