Doctors who recommend their patients use medicinal marijuana often suggest that beside smoking marijuana that they try numerous other methods of ingestion. One method of inhalation that doctor's prefer is cannabis based tinctures and sprays.
The advantage of using concentrates should be obvious, but let me list some reasons:
Imagine cannabis based tinctures widely available.
Often times our disconnect with the past has society forget that medicinal marijuana was used not too long ago for many common ailments. To say that this period is ancient would be incorrect.
Farmers planted pot seeds to grow cannabis crops that produced THC that pharmaceutical companies would then turn into medicine. Anyway, the physicians of the time, (from the early 1800’s to 1942 when it became criminal), were certainly recommending lots and lots of medications which contained cannabis in many forms.
From pot pills to cannabis tinctures.
No smoking required to feel the beneficial effects of marijuana.
Reviewing much of these doctors notes, it is clear they were using cannabis as we are.
We can all take lessons from the doctors and patients from nearly 200 years ago.
Medicinal marijuana patients should encourage their cannabis dispensary to carry new and innovative marijuana products.
Many dispensaries carry an assortment of cannabis baked goods, pot seeds, marijuana clones, and marijuana strains but finding one that carries cannabis sprays and tinctures might be a little more difficult. Creating cannabis tinctures is a difficult task.
If you are a patient, encourage your dispensary to carry new and innovative Cannabis concentrates. At the very least, let’s get back to the past. One never knows, perhaps we will move beyond the 1800’s?
