Heads Up!

  • First-time or less-experienced medical marijuana users should proceed with caution, starting with low doses and gradually increasing them over time, according to symptom management in consultation with your qualified physician.

  • Please consult with your qualified physician for specific dosing instructions.

  • Medical marijuana dosing is highly variable. Users should consider keeping a log or journal to optimize dosing.

  • It is recommended to start treatment in the evening and gradually increase the number of doses until symptoms are managed.

  • If no relief from symptoms is achieved after 2-3 weeks of increasing doses, or adverse events outweigh symptom management, medical marijuana users should consider consulting with their qualified physician to determine if the product is right for them. When withdrawing from medical marijuana products, the dosage should be decreased gradually.

  • Other cannabinoids present in amounts less than 5% (or less than 8% for concentrates) are: CBD, CBG, CBC, CBN, THCV, CBDV.

CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY

Medical marijuana products primarily act through the endocannabinoid (ECS) system. The ECS system is characterized by receptors that are expressed in a wide range of tissues, including the brain, lungs, gastrointestinal tract, reproductive system, muscle, cardiovascular system, bone, skin, immune system, liver, pancreas, and bone marrow.

The ECS system has been implicated in a wide range of processes including but not limited to energy metabolism, mood, pain, sleep cycle, immune response, inflammation, oxidative stress, cell death, cell migration, and tissue repair.
