    Advice on what to buy at medical marijuana dispensary

    What do you buy at your dispensary?

    What strain, dose, method of ingestion do you find most helpful for which symptoms?

    I have no idea what to buy! Pills, oil vape pen, etc.

    Finally dispensaries are opening in Maryland!

    Thank you!

    Trial and Error

    Sativa is for energy
    Indica is relaxing
    Hybrid is combination

    Depending on what symptoms you have will depend on strength. I prefer smoking or vaping.

    Trust your "budtender" at the dispensary they are very knowledgeable in regards to strains.

    Peace,
    Anna

      I don't have lots of experience with dispensaries (Idaho is not that evolved, sadly) but make sure you get a CBD heavy strain, I did well with a 65/35 THC/CBD (I think that was the mix) bit I got in Washington during my last trip up there. The stone isn't as strong, but that's probably not what you're looking for... gl

        Dispensary Products I got so far

        Dixie Mixed Berry Tablets (half thc half cbd)

        Dixie Vanilla Tincture (half thc half cbd)

        Lemon Skunk oil vape cartridge (Hybrid. 70% thc)

        Ace of Spades oil vape cartridge (Indica. 70% thc)

        I am experimenting with each product and different doses to find out what helps the best. So far nothing dramatic but I have noted some pain relief, some relief from leg stiffness/tightness when walking down steps. Also a better mood.

        I think it will be a long trial and error process. Sigh.

            In florida, there ar about 9 different companies allowed to grow and sell MMJ.
            One is superior to the others. The others are positioned for an eventual recreational MJ market and thus really into strains and high THC to CBD ratiod, and the rumor is their quality control is not as good as the one that is more focused on medical side.

            Doc said itís not relevant for the companies to be so into the strain debate.

            For spasticity and pain, the doc recommended MMJ with a 1:1 ratio CBD:THC. So, look for 1:1 ratio.

            I use tincture under the tongue. I donít want that stuff vaping into my lungs.

            It helps ALOT, and I have no side effects. I take about 17 mg per day, although doc recommends 25mg. They say to start low in amount and slowly titrate it up over days to find the right amount for you.

            Here is a good blog on using MMJ for MSsymptoms, feel free to chime in

              CBD for ON Neuritis

              I had severe Optic Neuritis with neuritis pain and CBD really helped. I was doing 30:1 CBD:THC because I didn't want psychotropic anything. One 10mg dose per evening worked great. It is kind of pricey here so I just used it during and a bit after the flare til things calmed down. It was in chocolate covered almonds, naughty me.
              All the best, ~G

                I have been taking CBD oil for a few years now prescribed by my pain specialist and ordered from a reputable quality controlled company. I think there is a lot of confusion out there about what people are selling and you can have a hard time figuring out what is what. I'm glad I had professionals to guide me. A lot of the shops sell hemp oil, I take CBD marijuana oil with less than 1% THC. I also have a script for one with a higher THC level which I take a small amount at bedtime. I do have to be careful of the amount of THC I take because of the added it weakness I experience. I know of people buying products that claim to not have THC but they get high, that's not right.

                  I live in Indiana and Illinois will be legalizing cannabis in 2020. I have used CBD products in the past and did have some medical marijuana last year that seemed to help with sleep. Does anyone have information on what types of strands work best for sleep and pain relief. All the best.
