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 SAFE and effective products 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 do I get Medical Marijuana?

How to get medical marijuana is the most sought after information on this site. So, seeing that everyone wants to know how they can get medical marijuana, we’ll cover a few of the very basics about medical marijuana in this article.

Recently, someone asked me “how do I get medical marijuana?”. This very simple question is one that is often overlooked.

How do I get Medical Marijuana?

First off, in order for you to get medical marijuana, you need to live in a medical marijuana state. Currently there are 17 States (plus D.C., our Nation’s Capitol) that have Medical Marijuana programs. (17 Medical Marijuana States)

Next, if you live in a medical marijuana state, you need to look at the requirements for obtaining a medical marijuana license. If you have one of the qualifying conditions, you can visit a doctor who specializes in medical marijuana, or ask your primary physician about obtaining your registration card (if required).

The states that have medical marijuana programs usually allow personal cultivation of medical marijuana, as well as the option of having a caregiver grow your medical marijuana for you. Another option in some states, is to visit the local medical marijuana dispensary, and get their medicine from them.

Once you become a medical marijuana patient, there are a few options for legally obtaining medical marijuana. (legal in your state, but still federally illegal) Depending on your states medical marijuana law, you will be able to either grow your own cannabis, choose a medical marijuana caregiver to grow your cannabis for you, or buy it for a drastically overpriced amount, from a dispensary.

The preferred method of obtaining medical marijuana for most people, is to grow their own, or have a friend/caregiver grow it for them. This is not only the cheapest method of obtaining your medicine, but it is the only sure way to know exactly what you are getting in your medical marijuana. Everything from the PH level of the water, to the exact nutrients used, will be known if you grow it yourself.

I always suggest growing your own medical marijuana (when allowed), especially if your only other option is to pay a huge markup for something that might not quite match-up to medical standards.

Remember these steps for getting medical marijuana:

  • Must live in Medical Marijuana State
  • Must have Qualifying Condition
  • Visit M.D./D.O./PCP and fill out application
  • Register with proper State Dept.
  • Choose legal method of obtaining your medicine
  • learn, experiment with methods of medicating – HAVE FUN!

Once you become a medical marijuana patient, you will have a mind-boggling amount of options to choose from when it comes to picking varieties of cannabis for use and preferred method of use. You will also have a few more options on how to obtain your medical marijuana

P2P Transfer of Medical Marijuana

Another option I have not mentioned yet, is another good, but controversial method of obtaining your medicine. This method is known as P2P or patient to patient transfers of medical marijuana. P2P transfers are allowed according to some laws, and not allowed according to laws in other medical marijuana States.

Basically, a P2P transfer is when one legally registered patient, transfers a small amount of medical marijuana (amount legal to possess by both patients), to another legally registered patient.

Some states appear to allow P2P transfers, while others do not. We highly encourage you to check the legality on P2P transfers before conducting one. Also, you should get to know someone very well before conducting a P2P transfer. This is after-all your medicine we are talking about, and you wouldn’t want to buy it from just anybody, now would you?
