When beginning therapy with medical cannabis, you will need to choose a method of consumption based on your preferences. Whether smoking, using a vaporizer or consuming edible items, the general guideline is to start at a low dose, gauge the effects and go slowly. Various surveys published in peer-reviewed journals and medical literature have suggested that the majority of people reported using approximately 1 to 3 grams of dried cannabis per day.

As a new client, you may also need to try multiple strains and gauge their relative effects when it comes to symptom relief before deciding on the best choice. Furthermore, some clients may find it useful to use multiple strains throughout the day, switching between them based on time of day. Sativa strains tend to be more energizing and suitable for the daytime, whereas Indica strains are more sedative and helpful with sleeping disorders.

When using medical marijuana for the first time, try to keep these things in mind:

  • Consume your product in a safe and comfortable environment.
  • Have at least three hours available to discern the full effects.
  • Do not drive a vehicle or operate any heavy machinery.
  • Start with a low dose.
