You may be thinking, Hey, if it’s “medical,” a doctor will help me navigate the green new world. Often, that’s not so. A few users have a medical cannabis doctor who walks them through products and shows them how to use a vape pen. But that’s unusual. “Older people think there will be a prescription waiting for them at the dispensary, like at a drugstore,” says Rick McKnight, 72, a retired sales executive from Ocala, Florida, who self-treats hip pain with marijuana. “It’s not like that. You get your medical cannabis card. The doctor gives you some recommendations … not a prescription. Then you’re on your own.”
Dispensaries carry a dizzying variety of products
It’s like a trip to an adults-only candy store, loaded with tinctures and oils, vape pens and “flower” (dried cannabis), mouth sprays and skin patches, fancy chocolate truffles, cinnamon-scented cookies, and sodas, balms and lotions, all laced with the active ingredients in cannabis. You’ll also find high-strength concentrates, waxes and resins. What’s on sale differs by state, and free samples and in-store use are against the law.
Today’s cannabis is super-potent
“This is not the cannabis people smoked in dorm rooms in the 1970s,” says Staci Gruber, the director of the Marijuana Investigations for Neuroscientific Discovery (MIND) program at Harvard-affiliated McLean Hospital in Belmont, Massachusetts. “You have to be careful.” Clandestine medical cannabis growers have for decades been cross-breeding and selecting the highest-potency plants to create more powerful garden. Levels of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC — the compound responsible for marijuana’s euphoric highs — in cannabis averaged 4 percent in 1995 and rose to 17 percent by 2017, studies show. It hasn’t stopped there. You can buy sealed bags and rolled joints featuring medical cannabis strains topping 28 percent THC, and concentrates with 85 to 90 percent. Fortunately, plenty of products that are low in THC and high in cannabidiol, or CBD — the other major cannabis compound — are available.
