When Is it Time to Get a Medical Marijuana Card?

When to get a medical marijuana card:

At Daily Habit, we’re obviously big fans of CBD and the health benefits it can provide. But for some people, they might need more help than what CBD can do. We love working with Leafwell and recommend it for anyone who is interested in Medical Marijuana.

More about THC

Here’s the thing: well-grown hemp made with CBD in mind is essentially just like the psychoactive cannabis plant – it just doesn’t contain as much THC, and so is not psychoactive in the same way. So, full spectrum cannabinoid oils are best put on a scale of CBD-rich, THC-rich or equal THC:CBD. Some people just need more THC.

THC has been unfairly demonized over the years as well, and has very good uses of its own. Even low amounts of THC like 2 mg may be useful for adults looking to beat nausea, chronic pain or insomnia. THC is also an excellent alternative to prescription opioids or sedatives, which are far more addictive.

Remember: medical cannabis does not necessarily involve getting “high” or “stoned”, and there are many cannabinoids in the cannabis plant – psychoactive or not – that are extremely useful for most people. Other cannabinoids like CBD, CBG, CBC, CBN and THCV can also be used to decrease – or even increase – the psychoactivity of THC when used appropriately.

At the same time, using a multitude of cannabinoids together can improve their safety and efficacy, and THC is a part of the equation. CBD, CBC and CBG can be used to mitigate some of the psychoactive effects of THC. The terpene pinene can reduce some of the short-term memory loss that can sometimes arise from THC use. THCV in low doses can reduce THC’s psychoactivity in low doses, and increase its potency in higher doses. CBN and the terpenes linalool, myrcene and humulene combined with THC can increase its sedative properties.
