Advice & Tips: I recommend using a vaporizer, this way you are not burning the medicine just heating it, also baking with it is highly recommended, not only do you get the benefits of the medicine you get a nice treat also! the downfall with baking is you need to use so much more, and if you are like me, it takes so much out of you to bake it, so you need someone else to bake for you! I loved this treatment and had no choice but to stop this nonaddictive medicine to go on highly addictive medicine! all due to cost! I get the highly addictive meds paid for...makes no sense to me!!
Cost: $200+ monthly

Advice & Tips: THC is available in numerous forms making it easy for any patient to use. Edibles are sometimes unreliable. THC capsules vary in strength. Smoking with a vaporizor is fast acting and you are able to adjust the amount that you use according to how you feel. THC helps with excessive saliva, cramping, pain, mental well being. It may cause drowsiness and a couch potato feeling. The side effects depend on the type of marijuana and the amount you ingest.
