Patient Guide To Medical Cannabis

Today, thanks to exciting new technology and development, the medical cannabis industry provides safe and effective choices for patients suffering from many medical conditions. Patients around the United States are finding relief for a variety of different illnesses including chronic pain, neuropathy, insomnia, muscle spasms, seizures, anxiety, and depression, just to name a few.

Thousands of patients are getting medical cannabis certifications so they can legally purchase their medication at a professionally run dispensary. The Maryland medical cannabis dispensaries are highly regulated and will offer a variety of product options. Cannabis sold illegally on the street is bred to be high in THC and is often lacking adequate levels of other cannabinoids, like cannabidiol (CBD), and terpenes which hold medicinal value. Studies show that the entourage effect provides the most medicinal benefit to patients which essentially means that the combination of different cannabinoids and terpenes is more effective than one single compound. This explains why many scientists and physicians believe that whole plant cannabis medicine is superior to pharmaceutical synthetic versions of THC (i.e. Marinol).

Since the medical cannabis sold at dispensaries is lab tested, patients can learn the exact quantities and ratios of cannabinoids and terpenes they are consuming. If a patient does not want to get “high” or feel intoxicated, they can purchase a product that has a very low THC content. If a patient does not want to smoke or inhale cannabis, they can buy a tincture, oil, or topical product. There are many choices for daytime and nighttime use since some cannabis varieties are more uplifting and others are more sedative.
