Medical Cannabis Guidelines

For patients who are new to cannabis, it's important to "start low and go slow" to avoid uncomfortable levels of intoxication with THC. Microdosing is a great option when it comes to THC--starting at 1 mg and increasing slowly until you find the dose that works best for you. Combining THC with CBD increases both tolerance to intoxication and effectiveness.
