Many medical marijuana patients choose to use edibles exclusively

My brother works for a pain clinic.

He sees people in excruciatingly intense physical pain on a daily basis whenever he is at his job. On one hand, it’s reassuring that some of these people are able to benefit from alternatives to medication like localized numbing and other procedures. On the other hand, these alternatives don’t always improve a person’s symptoms. You can’t expect cortisone shots to work like a magic miracle for spinal injuries, even if it works for some. There are cases where pharmaceutical intervention is the only alternative. Thankfully, the growing medical cannabis industry in this state is giving these suffering people more options beyond prescription opiates. The pain clinic’s overseeing physician is now certified with the state’s Office of Medical Marijuana Use as a medical marijuana doctor. He can write what is referred to as a “medical recommendation” for marijuana. It’s not treated the same way as a prescription for a traditional pharmacy, but it is similar. My brother tells me that the majority of their patients who use medical marijuana consume marijuana edibles mostly. Although some use vaporizers or bongs, the vast majority are consuming cannabis candy products or RSO extracts. I wish that I could use edibles, but my liver doesn’t process them the same way it would in a normal person. There are a small number of people who possess livers that don’t fully process THC when it’s consumed in the digestive tract. In my case, the only thing that really works is a quality cannabis concentrate like live rosin. I don’t care if it’s a sativa strain or an indica strain, as long as it doesn’t make me paranoid.
