Questions to ask when choosing the right cannabis treatment for your needs
A cursory Google search reveals thousands of different cannabis strains and countless points of view when it comes to the medicinal use of marijuana. With so many different options for treatment, finding the right medical marijuana regimen for your needs can be a little overwhelming. We totally understand that. Rest assured that most of the hassle is just knowing the right questions to ask. The team at Grant Pharms MMC, a local Colorado Springs Dispensary, put together a handy list of questions to help you on your journey towards a pain-free life.
WHAT ARE MY SYMPTOMS?
This may seem like a no-brainer, but it’s important to know exactly what you’re looking to get from your treatment so we can help you in as specialized a way as possible. We offer a wide array of different cannabis strains that are each designed to relieve distinct symptoms. For example—Sour Diesel is commonly used for remedying symptoms of depression, pain, stress, and fatigue, while Recon is commonly used to relieve pain and insomnia.
WHAT BENEFITS AM I LOOKING FOR?
We offer over 18 strains and each provides different benefits. It can be helpful to think about this question in terms of what activities you’re looking to do while high. Strains in the indica category help to de-stress while sativa lend an energy boost. Sour Grape, one of our indica strains, promotes relaxation which makes it a great high for the end of the day. Bruce Banner, one of our sativas, promotes euphoria and creativity.
HOW AM I MOST COMFORTABLE ADMINISTERING?
Between tinctures, edibles, vaporizers, and traditional smoking, there are many different ways to administer treatment—don’t be afraid to try a few options to find your favorite. Our bud tenders are happy to help answer any questions you may have about the process of each. Ask about flavors too! Some cannabis strains are fruity, some have a stronger odor—we’ll help you find a good fit.
HOW DO I KNOW WHAT DOSE IS RIGHT FOR ME?
The short answer is: it’s a process. Doses vary from one person to the next, but our bud tenders are trained to offer support on all levels. We recommend starting with a small amount of product and increasing (or decreasing) until you’re satisfied.
SHOULD I BE WORRIED ABOUT SIDE EFFECTS?
While it’s completely normal to be a little nervous, there’s really no need to be worried. Our experienced team of medical marijuana professionals is passionate about helping you find the right medicine for you and are trained to help you at any point along your journey—we’re also just plain friendly!
