How to start your medical marijuana

Here are a couple tips on starting your medical marijuana.  If you have not tried  THC or CBD, or if you have not tried a particular way to take THC or CBD (like by mouth instead of inhaled), there are a couple things to be aware of:

  • THC: the first couple of times you take your THC,  you might feel anxious. If this does not go away in a couple of days, call us.  Sometimes the experience you get with THC gets interpreted by your brain as anxiety and once your brain gets used to it, it’s OK. If anxiety on taking THC is really bad or if it lasts more than a couple days, stop the THC and call us.
  • CBD: the first couple of times you take CBD, you might get diarrhea.  If this does not go away in a couple days, stop your CBD and call us.

So go LOW and SLOW to start both THC and CBD.
