Investing in Medical Marijuana Products

Investing in Medical Marijuana Products

With all the cannabis infused products like homemade, tinctures, creams, balms, and cannabis infused lotions and potions, edibles and oils and even medicated suckers…… how do you know if your medical cannabis product is safe?

First of all, if you follow the patient/caregiver model, you should be making your own cannabis infused products, or at the very least have a caregiver who is willing to learn how to make the infused cannabis products you want.

The truth is, many cannabis infused products can be made fairly easily, and somewhat cheaply right at home, if you just do your homework. I suggest reading as many herbal healing books as you can, as well as books about health, nutrition and cannabis. This way you get a full understanding of how medicinal plants work, as well as what your body needs from them.

Education is the first step in making a SAFE and effective medical cannabis product for your own personal use.

Anyone can look up a cannabis infusion recipe on YouTube and throw together some concoction in their garage and call it a cannabis medicine. The truth is, unless they did some serious research, all they have done is follow a recipe that someone posted on the internet.

Whether or not this concoction works is not necessarily the issue at hand. After all, a half gallon of Jack Daniels along with a hammer will WORK for a toothache. However – it is not safe, and is certainly not medicine at all – even if it does get the job done!

Medical Marijuana Medicine a Good Investment?

To be medicine, the person making it first needs to not just understand how to follow a recipe, but they need to understand what each and every ingredient in that recipe does, and what it’s purpose is, as well as how it is going to react with the individual they are selling it too.

Once a person has an understanding of ALL the compounds and ingredients they are working with (which only come after years of research and devotion), they should also learn how the human body works, and how those concoctions are going to affect the person taking them.

Can the person selling you your “medicine” explain to you how it is absorbed into the skin? If they are selling you an infused balm or other skin product, they should damn well be able to tell you how it was made, and how it works.

How about the labeling? Does the product you just spent $50 on even have a label that tells you what is in it?

How to Explain Medical Marijuana

Medical marijuana, and the children – what do we tell them?

The simple answer here is – tell the truth!

The truth is, medical marijuana is a valuable tool, that can be used to help people in pain, treat many conditions SAFELY, and it is a better alternative than taking addictive, dangerous, and costly prescription pills.

How to Explain Medical Marijuana

Marijuana, also called cannabis, is a very misunderstood plant, that has been around for at least thousands of years, and possibly since the beginning of time itself. For this reason, I suggest that before you talk to your children about medical marijuana, you take a little time to first educate yourself about marijuana, it’s history, and the many uses of marijuana worldwide.

Learn about how marijuana, which used to be called cannabis, has been used for at least 5,000 years of recorded history, with no recorded deaths reported – ever!

Take a moment to read about how medical marijuana was used in the United States, all the way up until prohibition began, for almost all common illnesses and ailments. Head on over to google, and look up some information, about how almost every president throughout our country’s history, used marijuana/cannabis, to treat their conditions – at one time or another.

Look up the facts first, then talk to your children and give them the information they need, so that they can understand exactly what medical marijuana is – and what it isn’t.

Medical marijuana is NOT the dangerous narcotic, that some people would lead you to believe. Cannabis is actually an herb, one that has the great ability to interact with the human body, in ways we really are just beginning to understand.

Before you worry about sending OUR children the wrong message, let me tell you, by acting like medical marijuana is not medicine, we are already sending them the wrong message.

The Truth About Medical Marijuana

The message we are sending to our children, when we ignore medical marijuana is: “we are idiots and we don’t care enough about you, to tell you the truth”.

OUR CHILDREN – won’t be children forever. Don’t you want to arm them with the facts they need, before it’s too late? Do you think telling them marijuana is not medicine now, then letting them find out it is later, is not going to confuse them and make them lose trust in us?

Marijuana Infused Oils

Marijuana Infused Oils can be used in many different ways. By infusing hemp oil, olive oil, or your favorite vegetable/cooking oil with medical marijuana, you open up many more possible uses. I personally recommend hemp oil, as it is from the same plant as marijuana, (the cannabis plant) it tastes great, and is 100% natural.

Marijuana Infused Oils

A little hemp oil or olive oil infused with medical marijuana, can be drizzled over a salad, or even used to cook with on low heat. Sauteed veggies, with a little infused oil drizzled on them near the end, make a great tasting and very nutritious meal.

Another use for infused oils includes, using them as massage oils. By infusing medical marijuana into hemp oil, and using it in aromatherapy, or medical massage, you open up many more avenues for its use. When used topically, infused oils work in a whole different way than when ingested. For instance, massaging infused oil into a particular muscle that is giving you problems, is a great way to stop muscle aches and spasms, without smoking marijuana, ingesting it, or “getting high”. (when ingested the “high” or “medicated” feeling is obtained)

Medical Marijuana Topical Balms and Rubs are another “no high”, smokeless method of using marijuana as medicine.

Medical Marijuana Balm and Hemp Oils

A medical marijuana balm that contains hemp oil, beeswax, and essential oils used in aromatherapy, is another great way to take away your aches and pains, without getting you high, and without smoking. There are many topical uses for medical marijuana, including treating; eczema, inflammation, muscle pain, joint pain, arthritis, gout, rashes, dry skin and several more.

With a little research, and some experimenting with recipes, a medical marijuana patient can usually find a combination of methods that is right for them.

As you can see, there are many uses for medical marijuana, and several methods that can be used safely – even by children, with no worries about smoking or getting high. I’m sure if you have a “qualifying condition” and live in one of the current 16 Medical Marijuana States, (or D.C.) that medical marijuana can help you too.

If you are into natural healing, and want to learn more about healing the body naturally, where I’ll be posting some great information on healing the body naturally through the age-old art of Aromatherapy. Many of the essential oils used in aromatherapy are similar to the essential oils and terpenes produced naturally, within the marijuana plant!
