Recommended methods for using and/or ingesting medicinal marijuana (in states where medical marijuana is legal – this currently does not include the state of Wisconsin):

1. Vaporization

  • Unlike smoked marijuana, vaporized marijuana delivers zero carcinogens to the patient, while releasing only the medicinal properties of the plant for inhalation.
  • Vaporization allows patients to better titrate each dose of medical marijuana as needed or recommended by the patient’s doctor.
  • Vaporization is safe and effective.

2. Edibles

  • Recommended for patients who prefer to receive their medication without having to inhale it or taste it.

3. Tinctures/Oils

  • Recommended for patients looking to create their own medical marijuana edibles or for direct ingestion.
  • Recommended for patients who are either unable to vaporize or eat edibles.
