Even though California voters have passed recreational marijuana in California, medical marijuana cards are still required until sometime in 2018. Two things are required to get medical marijuana. A valid and current medical marijuana recommendation from a physician.  Also, proof of residency in the state of California is required. Proof of residency can be a rental/mortgage agreement, car registration or utility bill with your name and local address. Without those two things, we cannot dispense medication to you.

There are many different ways to medicate.  Some people prefer to smoke while others prefer edibles.  Lots of other great methods exist as well.  We’re happy to show you a few of our favorites. Tinctures & balms are another great way to relieve pain & inflammation through age-old natural methods that are high in CBD levels.  Alternative methods of medicating have many benefits that may not be found in traditional methods.  Every person is different & most will have different preferences.  It’s always recommended to try a small amount first & see how you feel one hour later before continuing.
THC is the ingredient in medical cannabis that gives the euphoric feeling that is sometimes experienced while using various methods of medicating.  It is typically released by way of heat during smoking or cooking the cannabis to a specified temperature.  Other methods of ingesting cannabis without heating, allow patients to medicate without the euphoric effects of THC. There are many studies on THC’s ability to reduce the painful pressure of glaucoma. Clinical studies on THC’s analgesic, pain-relieving properties in patients with cancer or severe pain can be found here.
CBD is a non-psychoactive component of marijuana that possesses a wide range of therapeutic benefits. When present in high quantities, CBD enhances THC’s positive effects. It’s clear both THC & CBD coexist in the plant for a reason, often acting synergistically to create enhanced effects.  There are many studies online that discuss CBD’s ability to reverse alcohol-induced brain damage, CBD as an effective treatment for severe social anxiety, and CBD as a potent anti-psychotic medicine.
