Medical Marijuana Product Guide

There are a variety of products available among the dispensaries in the area. As a medical marijuana patient, this gives you the flexibility to find the one or combination of products that works best for you. Remember, the first one you try may not be the one you settle on.


Oral Products

The oral route is any product you take by mouth and is a great alternative to inhalation. If you have problems digesting other medicines, you might have the same problem with oral cannabis because it’s subject to the same digestive process. In that case consider using tinctures sublingually (drops placed under your tongue) or non-oral products.
