Which Medical Marijuana Products Will be Available in Georgia?
Updated: Jul 15
Georgia is expecting to have its first medical marijuana production facility up and running within a year.
While the state has been figuring out the here’s and there’s for the past five years, it looks like things should be ramping up for the Peach State shortly.
It wouldn’t be surprising to see patients who have applied for Georgia medical marijuana cards to finally be purchasing products in a little over a year from now.
While there’s no clear-cut answer for exactly what type of products the facilities will be producing, there are some usual ones that emerge out of cannabis oil, and in this article, we’ll cover the top five cannabis oil products you might find in Georgia!
Top Five Cannabis Oil Products
Low-THC cannabis oil in Georgia means cannabis oil with less than 5% total THC in it, and is used to treat a variety of conditions and ailments.
Cannabis oil can be applied topically or internally, and is especially effective in treating seizures, pain, and inflammation.
Usually containing high amounts of CBD or other non-psychoactive compounds, low-THC cannabis oil is specifically aimed at treating symptoms with little or no psychoactive effects.
While low-THC cannabis oil itself could technically be pure oils extracted from harvesting cannabis plants, it will likely end up as a consumer product after a few more revisions as well.
To be fair, there is no way to accurately predict what the state will allow, and what production facilities will create, so this list is as much of a suggestion as it is a hopeful look at the future.
So let’s check out what some of these products might look like, with the top 5 cannabis oil products we could see in Georgia!
#1 Cannabis Oil Product – Pure or Raw Oil
Cannabis oils that are pure extracts of trichomes from cannabis plants hold an extraordinary number of medical compounds. These resinous glands provide most of the compounds that are consumed to treat various illnesses, and it’s where you’ll find CBD, THC, CBG, and CBN.
Oils that are extracted and purified for consumption can be taken orally, and products like Rick Simpson Oil, or RSO, and Charlotte’s Web are some of the best you can get. These products are typically organic and natural, and as pure extracts, are designed to contain the greatest number of beneficial compounds for medical consumption.
#2 Cannabis Oil Product – Topical Products
Topicals are a unique subset of cannabis products.
Because you cannot get high from applying the psychoactive compounds of cannabis topically, many looking to treat chronic localized pain turn to topicals.
Ranging from lotions to salves and shampoos, topicals embrace a unique category in that there are nearly as many ways to use cannabis products externally as there are internally.
For localized chronic pain, a pain patch or a lotion that can activate immediately can be a miracle, and for skin problems like acne or psoriasis, a fast acting and natural oil that won’t break out your skin is a lifesaver.
#3 Cannabis Oil Product – Aerosols
Not surprisingly, cannabis-based inhalers exist, and they’re awesome.
Cannabis is a bronchodilator, it helps relax your airways so that you can breathe easier. It’s not usually recommended that asthma patients should inhale smoke and its toxic carbons and chemicals, however aerosol delivery is an extremely efficient and proactive way to consume cannabis oils without the harmful toxins of smoke inhalation.
#4 Cannabis Oil Product – Edibles
Edibles are one of the most common ways to consume cannabis oil. In fact, almost all edibles are made by infusing cannabis oil extracted from harvested plant material, so any time you buy an edible there’s an extremely high chance that its base ingredient is a cannabis oil.
Edibles can come in nearly any size, shape, and flavor, ranging from chocolates to chocolate tacos, lollipops, even seltzers. Edibles are also one of the healthiest ways to consume cannabis, making it easy to avoid toxic smoke and enjoy the benefits of medical marijuana.
#5 Cannabis Oil Product – Oral Products (Pills)
Cannabis oil products that are designed to be taken orally are by far the most common subset of cannabis products.
Pills, vitamins, and gummies all fall under this category, but especially pills and gummies, oral products are designed to be taken internally and typically at dosage intervals.
People have been swapping joints for cannabis pills more than ever lately, and with conditions that could make smoking a severe complication, these products can be taken very easily and are simple to manage on a treatment plan.
While RSO, edibles, and aerosols are all oral products, the specificity is in how it is delivered. Oral products often come in either pill or lozenge form, even RSO is often measured into a time-releasing capsule for intake, but that whole process can be avoided by just purchasing a product already in pill form.
There is a ton of variety in how Georgia cannabis producers might make their final product look, and we’re hoping for the best.
With all the available options to turn raw cannabis oil into something delicious, effective, and agreeable, it only makes sense that patients will look for ways to make their medicine less of a hassle and more of an enjoyment.
