Why Marijuana?

When it comes to treating ailments, there are now a variety of options that you can delve into to see what works best for you. From modern medicine to more natural options, there is sure to be a treatment that will help you. Medical marijuana is typically seen as a more natural option, as it comes from a plant. Cannabis has been used for thousands of years and is known for the high that you experience when ingesting. Since marijuana is a plant, you can rest assured that the components of the plant are natural and were not concocted in a lab.


Marijuana, while it may seem simple at first, is a very complex plant that comes in a variety of strains. The strains all treat different ailments and can produce different effects. Sativa is a common category that is typically associated with more energetic effects and indica is most often associated with a relaxing effect. Both of these categories can further be broken down to more specific strains with effects that are broken down even further. When first exploring medical marijuana, you will want to be sure to look into the strains to see what will help you. First time users typically stick to strains like Harlequin, an even-keel strain with generally euphoric effects, ACDC, which is more CBD based and will ease you into the effects of THC, Blue Dream, that is one of the most popular strains and has hints of sweet berries, and God’s Gift, that will relieve all forms of stress. You can also head to your dispensary and ask your budtenders for guidance.

Exploring different strains, asking questions, and doing your research will allow you to more easily find the best strain of medical marijuana that will work for you.

Types of High

While you may think that ingesting marijuana may produce one type of high, but it can actually vary based on how you ingest, what strain you choose, and the chemistry of your body. Your high depends on a variety of factors and it is important to ease into the process and not jump right in. When it comes to the type of high, the most basic breakdown is an energetic or meditative experience. An energetic high typically results in a more upbeat mood and will allow you to get things done. For meditative or euphoric highs, you will feel more relaxed and it will allow you to destress after a long day.

By knowing what kind of high you are wanting to experience, you will be able to better find what type of strain will help you and learn what you want your high to feel like.

Ways to Consume

When first diving into medical marijuana, you may think that they only way to consume is through smoking, but there are several ways to ingest cannabis so that you can find what works best or is easiest for you. If you prefer to smoke or have experience in smoking, then this option may be best for you. Smoking gives you the option to try several types of strains and the flower that you choose can produce a variety of effects. There are now even vape pens that offer a more discreet option to smoking and they now come in several flavors. However, one downfall to smoking is that it can be hard to find the right dosage and measuring the amount is more difficult.

If you’re looking for a more intense high, you can try out dabs or concentrate. These will produce a more intense high that is recommended for more experienced cannabis users. Like smoking, this method can be hard to dose and it requires more hardware in order to use it.

For those that aren’t into the idea of smoking, you can head to the edibles section of your dispensary. Edibles have been around for a while now but have branched out from the traditional brownies. You can try out almost any style of goodie. You can now try out edibles like cookies, gummies, chocolate, suckers, and even drinks. Edibles are preferred by most because they can be taken almost anywhere and the dosage is more accurate than with smoking.

With all of these tips, you can head into your medical marijuana experience with more knowledge and be able to more quickly find what works best for you.
