The Wide Selection of Medical Cannabis Product Categories
Dried Marijuana Flowers
Dried cannabis flowers are the most well known form of medical cannabis product. Dried flowers can be used in a multitude of ways and are extremely versatile. Many patients prefer dried marijuana flowers for their fast onset time and high potency. Potential uses for dried flowers are:
- Smoked directly from a pipe
- Rolled in a joint
- Smoked from a water pipe or bong
- Heated in a vaporizer
- Cooked for oil or edibles
- Soaked in an alcohol to create a tincture
Dried medical marijuana flowers are typically classified by their cannabinoid profile and their strain profiles. Cannabinoid profiles include the total number of concentrations of each cannabinoid or terpene. This information is obtained through accurate lab testing analysis.
Alternatively, a strain profile is the classification given to a particular strain of medical cannabis. Most often you will hear of sativa, indica, hybrid, or high cbd. Each of these strain profiles provide common effects from administering medical cannabis. For instance most classify sativas with stimulating effects and indicas are often classified with sedating effects.

Medical Marijuana Edibles
Medical cannabis edibles often carry a longer lasting effect than dried flowers yet they also have a longer onset time until the effects have taken hold. Many patients prefer medical cannabis edibles to other products as they do not have to ingest smoke or vapor in the event they have a condition that could be affected.
Most common medical cannabis edible products include:
- Hard Candies
- Chewing Gum
- Teas and Drinks
Medical cannabis edibles are also classified by cannabinoid and strain profiles and offer a variety of lasting effects. It should be noted that medical cannabis edibles can be a danger to both children and those who do not use medical cannabis as there have been instances where the edible was mistaken for a non-medicated product and consumed by an individual that did not want the effects of medical cannabis.
Patients using medical cannabis, especially those using medical cannabis edibles, should be mindful of the potential dangers and always practice responsible use and storage. For more information view the MCC Dispensary Responsible Use Guide and Medical Cannabis Storage Tips.
