If you’ve been recommended to receive medical marijuana treatment in the U.S., you might have a question or two about the product itself.

Whether it’s safe where you live, what the options are and what dosage you should consume. Most importantly, if all you’ve heard about marijuana is right!

For all these questions and more, Midori Med is here to educate you on the subject.

Learning about Medical Marijuana

– You Will Need to Do Your Research When Considering an Option

You’ll find a dizzying selection of products when you go to a dispensary. From flowers and tinctures to cookies and lotion, you’ll need to choose an option that you can use easily. For that, you’ll need to do your research on which product suits you best. There’s really no need to force yourself to try something new, especially given that what you’re trying is medication. Choose a product that can be used with ease.

– Don’t Underestimate the Potency of Marijuana

There’s a world of difference in the crop we had 20 years ago and the one we use today.

Thanks to years of cross-breeding, levels of certain compounds such as CBD and THC has increased in various strains, which are used for medication. So, if you had cannabis once in your life before, don’t mistake that moderate high as what you’ll be getting now.

– Know If Medical Marijuana is Legal in Your State

While medical marijuana is legal in Florida, there’s still time before we see it become completely acceptable all over the country. If you’re not located in Florida, it’s wise to check with a medical professional in your state if the marijuana strain you want will be available. Products with higher levels of CBD may be readily available. However, if you need a product with THC, that’s a whole other ballgame.

– You Will Feel Guilty if You’re an Older User (Don’t!)

Thanks to decades of the drug’s status as an illegal drug (it still is in some states), many older users shy away from using the product altogether, while some hide the fact that they’re using.

But for those patients, understand this:

The stigma may make you reluctant to try medical marijuana. But if you stop yourself from seeking the correct treatment because of public perception, it will only result in worse ramifications for your health.

– Your Physician Might Not Be the Best Person to Go to For Recommendations

According to a 2019 survey conducted by Mayo Clinic, half of the primary care doctors reported that they did not have enough information about medical marijuana to answer their patients’ questions confidently, even though they are proponents of the drug for its many medicinal properties.

For your case, it’s important that you seek a medical professional who would be trained and educated on the subject, so you can get the right guidance.
