Finding The Perfect Denver Medical Marijuana Dispensary, Treatment Options, and Cannabis Strains Nea


Medical Cannabis 101

In our previous post, we discussed how to apply for your medical marijuana card. Once you successfully obtain your medical marijuana card, there are a few more things to consider before purchasing product and taking it home. We’ve gathered some insights here to help you out!

Find the Right Treatment

Although Colorado has legalized recreational cannabis, there are still dispensaries that specialize in medical cannabis. Standing Akimbo is one of them! We employ experts that can help determine the correct strain and dosage for your condition. Cannabis species are sorted into three categories – sativa, indica, and hybrid – and each species offers different strains with different benefits (more on that below). In addition, your prescribing doctor may have recommendations for what type and how much before you buy. Not near Standing Akimbo at the moment? Call us and we will be happy to help you find a medical cannabis dispensary near you.

The Strain Matters

There are nearly 780 known cannabis strains, which can make picking the right one a daunting task! As mentioned above, there are three main categories of cannabis species, which are further divided into strains. Indica typically has higher CBD and lower THC counts, which makes the indica strains relaxing and great for nighttime use. Sativa contains lower CBD and higher THC counts, which makes it energizing and great for daytime use. A hybrid strain is a combination of the two. A strain that contains around 15% THC is common for maximum benefit to your medical condition, and more THC is not necessarily better. Standing Akimbo will help you sort through the strains to find the right one (or two!) for you. Don't be afraid to chat with the budtenders at a medical dispensary nearby about your questions or concerns regarding which strains you should try. More often than not, the budtenders will have their own experiences with their products, and might be able to offer a little direction if you do not know where to start!

Consume Responsibly

Okay, you’ve obtained your medical card, determined the correct treatment, and you’ve arrived at the dispensary. Turns out, there are many ways to consume medical cannabis – which one do you choose? Not everyone is comfortable smoking cannabis, but luckily, there are many other delivery methods: tinctures, dabs, edibles, oils, lotions and vaporizers. Standing Akimbo will be able to help you determine the most comfortable method for you. Once you’ve picked out your product, treat it like you would any other medication: store it properly, don’t use too much, and keep it away from children and pets.
