In Florida, many different types of Medical Marijuana products are available today, ranging from tablets, concentrates, ointment, sprays, oils, and even smoke. The product most suitable for your medical condition should be discussed with an experienced Marijuana physician before starting treatment. Marijuana physicians considers many factors before making a recommendation, such as the severity of your medical condition, the nature of your symptoms, the effect that you need, and the current medications in your treatment regime. All these clinical factors, including your personal preference, play a pivotal role in choosing the right Medical Marijuana product for your treatment. The nature of effect the patient’s needs is also a big factor in deciding the right Medical  product. For instance, if you have severe chronic pain associated due to underlying cancer or any other severe medical condition, your physician will recommend a mode of administration that has rapid action time to give you immediate relief. Some Marijuana products will show instant effect such as smoking and inhaling Cannabis, reducing symptoms within minutes after you have taken the prescribed Medical Marijuana dose. On the other hand, some products have a delayed onset of action, such as pills, tablets and edibles, but their effect lasts for longer.

Our experienced physicians in My Florida Green always listen, understand and acknowledge their patients’ choices, keeping their needs at the heart of the service. You can discuss the routes of administration you are most comfortable with, and they will find the right Medical Marijuana product for you.

Medical Marijuana Tablets & Pills

Medical Marijuana tablets, capsules, and pills are interchangeable terms; however, there are slight differences in the Marijuana composition they contain. The capsules can have dried, and crushed Medical Marijuana leaves in a known composition and dose, they are prepared when fresh Marijuana leaves are dried before crushing and adding them in capsules in the desired quantity. You might not find these crude forms of Medical Marijuana capsules easily in the dispensary because they are not calibrated or designed as a particular titrant unless prepared by a licensed pharmaceutical company. However, if you get a Marijuana recommendation from our physicians, they will assist you in choosing a dispensary which will prepare these capsules specifically for your requirement.

Licensed Medical Marijuana pharmaceutical companies and dispensaries in Florida prepare some form of Medical Marijuana tablets designed with a specific composition of CBD and THC. Most patients prefer this form of Medical Marijuana because they know the exact quantity of Marijuana they are consuming. Patients who do not want to smoke, and want to consume Marijuana discreetly, prefer Marijuana tablets, instead of Marijuana vapes and oils. Determining if Medical Marijuana tablets are the best way to take your Marijuana prescription depends on your initial discussion with your Marijuana Specialist. It also depends on which Medical Marijuana product you prefer. Whichever Medical Marijuana product you decide to choose, your physician in My Florida Green clinic will ensure you get the correct Medical Marijuana strain and dose, equivalent to what you should get from the edibles or ointment as the case may be. The process followed by Medical Marijuana physicians at My Florida Green is to continuously measure your body’s tolerance to the given Marijuana dose, and adjust your dose based on your body’s reaction to it. So, it becomes extremely important that your Medical Marijuana treatment is monitored and supervised by an experienced physician to ensure the success of your treatment. If you want to schedule an appointment with a state-licensed Marijuana physician near you, you should contact our specialists at My Florida Green.

Medical Marijuana Oils

Medical Marijuana oils are concentrates that are created by extracting cannabinoids like CBD and THC from the Cannabis Sativa plant. The “chemical extraction” process creates most oils available at Medical Marijuana dispensaries. The extraction method uses a solvent to extract the cannabinoids along with other compounds like flavonoids and terpenes and add them to carriers like hemp oil or MCT oil.

Some patients prefer using oils, as they show their effect faster than  Marijuana tablets and edibles; however, Medical Marijuana oils do not work as fast as other routes of consumption, such as vaping or smoking, it still works faster than ingesting edibles. Oils also come in a variety of potency options, from oils that contain only CBD to those that have different combinations of THC.

The most effective and popular way to take Marijuana oil is to take it sublingually, by placing the oil under the tongue. In this method, the oil gets absorbed by the mucous membranes that transmit it directly to the bloodstream. By taking the oil, Marijuana bypasses the stomach, increasing the availability and allowing Cannabis to be absorbed into the bloodstream. This method takes 15 to 30 minutes for the effect of Marijuana to kick in. The Cannabis oils can also be added to food items and beverages, to make different Marijuana edibles.

This, however, lowers the bioavailability of Cannabis as the cannabinoids have to be absorbed by the stomach, pass through the liver, before they are available in the bloodstream. This is the main reason for the delay in the effect people feel after taking Medical Marijuana edibles. Consuming Cannabis oil can take anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes to kick in depending on things like what you’ve eaten and the speed of your metabolism.
