Let’s say that you have been prescribed by a doctor to use medical marijuana and have a green card, or you live in states like Washington or Colorado where the use of marijuana has been fully legalized. Do you know what you should be expecting as a new consumer of marijuana?
Let go of the stereotype image you have from Woodstock. Cannabis today is quite different and not what is was before. You will find that marijuana comes in many different options and will have different effects on your body. The marijuana industry is quite adaptable to change. Around some parts of the world, cannabis has already started to become legal and even the techniques in using the drug has changed over time. Medical marijuana delivery has even become popular.
First, you have to be well informed about the drug and know which option (strain) to choose. Take note that each strain is different and no two are equal. If you happen to be taking marijuana for medical purposes, do some research for the best strain to get to help you with your symptoms. Even those who use marijuana recreationally mix it up once in a while and try different strains to see the effects and have a unique experience with the drug. When looking for the right strains try:
- Looking it up on the net and on a marijuana database. You can even buy medical marijuana online.
- Talk to different marijuana shops and ask for their recommendations.
- Explore different strains by yourself (start out with small amounts to really test which strain works best for you).
Now you should know how to consume marijuana. I bet you only though you can just smoke it right? But there are more ways to use it like tinctures, medibles, lotions, and even the oil is useful. Find out which is the best method of consuming marijuana for you as some might just worsen your symptoms rather than alleviate them. Avoid smoking the weed if you have breathing problems. It is best to buy organic cannabis. A few tips to follow are:
- Discussing with your doctor how you should consume it.
- Research online on how you should use it.
- Consult with the shop employees and ask for their guidance on using the weed.
Once you have picked out a marijuana strain and found out how to use it, now is the time to get some weed. Go around your area and visit the dispensaries of marijuana and find which shop you feel most comfortable in. If you don’t want to go out of your house you can just have the weed delivered to your door.
When you actually visit the shop, you can see the business they run and how thing are going there. You will get a better understanding of who you are buying from. Whilst I you have it delivered, it will be more convenient and you won’t spend energy going out.
When you have the weed, it’s time to use it. Enjoy the experience and feel its effects on your body. You should also take precautions. Treat the weed just like how you treat your medicine – store it properly and don’t overdose.
