Cannabis Oil for Georgia Medical Marijuana Patients
Georgians will soon be shopping at dispensaries once the state finalizes their arrival. Because the state has legalized medical marijuana with less than 5% THC for patients with qualifying conditions, many medical marijuana patients will be looking for cannabis oil, which typically has much smaller total THC content.
In this guide we’ll cover what cannabis oil is, how it’s made, and how Georgians with qualifying conditions for medical marijuana can use it!
What is Cannabis Oil?
Cannabis oil is traditionally extracted oil from various parts of the cannabis plant.
The cannabis plant has a lot of parts and ingredients.
It grows organically and after being harvested, dried, and processed, it can be consumed in essentially as many ways as it can be grown.
At the final stage of growing, the buds from dried cannabis flower can be ground up and smoked, pressed with heat to extract oils, raised to specific temperatures and vaporized, or even decarboxylated and baked into edibles.
There are many different things that can happen to the plant at its final stage. In fact, before it’s even dried and trimmed the oils can be extracted from nearly all parts of the plant.
One of the most desirable parts of the plant are the trichomes, which is where cannabis oil is typically extracted, although in truth it could be obtained from any number of cannabis plant materials.
Trichomes contain the terpenes, THCA, CBDA, flavonoids, and other cannabinoids that cannabis is used for, and oils are typically extracted from the trichomes for this reason.
Extracts are naturally in an oil form, the tiny crystal-like heads of the trichomes are oily already. And when they are combined in large quantities, they create an oily base substance that can be further synthesized or processed into whatever product is desired.
Frequently, the final product is a type of cannabis oil that is designed to be taken orally or topically.
Benefits of Cannabis Oil for Georgia Marijuana Patients
Usually containing high amounts of CBD, low-THC cannabis oil can be applied in a variety of ways to treat a variety of conditions. Many parts of the cannabis plant that are synthesized in cannabis oil are also known to be particularly effective with treating seizures, pain, and inflammation, with little or no mind-altering effects.
Cannabis oil can come in many different product types, such as topicals, tinctures, lotions, throat lozenges, salves, and creams. There is typically no overdose for topicals, however for products that are consumed internally, very high doses can cause nausea or vomiting in some people.
Some conditions that can benefit from cannabis oil include:
· Chronic Pain
· Problems with Sleeping
· Cancer-Related Symptoms & Medication Side Effects
· Seizures & Muscle Spasms
· Nerve Pain
Using cannabis oil as an alternative medicine could be an important conversation for you and your doctor to discuss. When traditional pharmaceuticals can come with extreme, common side effects versus the minimal, uncommon side effects of cannabis-based medications, cannabis oil might be an option to consider.
For those suffering from arthritis or joint pain, cannabis oil can be applied topically directly on the affected area once, and relief can often begin immediately. If pain persists or reappears later, you can apply again and use it as needed, there are no overdoses or maximum dosages for topical cannabis oils.
Cannabis oil can be implemented into many different treatment plans without the long list of adverse side effects and can be used confidently by many patients with chronic and terminal illnesses.
Every day more data and information about the effectiveness of cannabis oil is discovered, and that knowledge can help the industry create better medications for Georgia cannabis patients.
For Georgians with medical marijuana cards, dispensaries are just around the corner, and the state is anticipating a smooth operation once the medical marijuana program is fully up and running, and we expect patients will take full advantage of the many therapeutic benefits of cannabis oil.
