Will you get high from Medical Cannabis?

The classic cannabis flower comes in two main types: Indica and Sativa. Smoking or vaping Indica, known as the "night time strain," tends to lead to relaxation and calmness, like sinking into a comfy couch.


On the other hand, Sativa, the "daytime strain," is more like a cup of morning coffee, potentially uplifting and energizing. The experience with the flower depends on its THC content - high THC equals a higher chance of an exhilarating ride.


So, whether you're a fan of vaping, edibles, tinctures, or the good old flower, understanding the THC and CBD content, along with the Indica or Sativa variety, can guide you on what kind of 'high' or experience to expect. THC: The Party Starter When THC, the main psychoactive buddy in cannabis, is part of your medical prescription, it's like inviting the life of the party. THC can lead to various 'highs' - from feeling euphoric and giggly (sativa) to experiencing deep relaxation (indica). Imagine THC as that friend who encourages you to dance on the metaphorical tables of euphoria.


CBD: The Chill Companion On the flip side, if your prescription is heavy on CBD and light on THC, it's more about the chill vibes. CBD is like the friend who's there to calm you down after a long day, without the buzz. No floating sensations or uncontrollable giggles here, just cool, calm, and collected relief.


Different Products, Different Experiences


Vape Cartridges: High in THC? You're in for a quick trip to Cloud Nine. Low in THC? Enjoy the scenic route with mild effects.

Edibles: These can be tricky! THC-infused gummies or brownies can lead to a delayed but potent high. Remember, patience is a virtue here.

Tinctures and Oils: Drop by drop, tinctures can range from mellow (CBD-dominant) to a full-on fiesta (THC-rich).

Topicals: Lotions and creams usually don't cause a high, even with THC. They're more like the friends who give great back rubs without any of the drama.

In the grand tale of medical cannabis, whether you get high or not is largely up to THC, the life of the party. Always remember, though, that the best experiences come with informed choices. So, consult your healthcare provider, pick your party (or chill session), and enjoy the ride responsibly!
