The use of cannabis as medicine dates back thousands of years, and includes many cultures. Since its inception in 2008, Michigan’s medical marijuana program has helped countless thousands find renewed hope and relief from uncontrolled symptoms of chronic illness. For many, smoking medical marijuana is an effective method of administering medicine, but for those who need longer lasting pain relief or have physical difficulty smoking, edible forms of this effective treatment deliver both comfort and variety.
Marijuana contains powerful substances called cannabinoids that are secreted by marijuana flowers. Cannabinoids bind to receptors in our bodies, and have been proven to stop the growth of cancer cells, support the immune system, slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease, slow the progression of glaucoma, and ease epileptic seizures and spasms. In patients undergoing treatment for Hepatitis-C, medical cannabis has been effective in treating the side effects of treatment, as well as making the treatment for Hepatitis-C more effective, leading to better outcomes and higher completion rates of Hepatitis-C treatment. For registered medical marijuana patients, ingesting foods infused with cannabis rather than inhaling the smoke has many advantages. Butter or oil infused with marijuana can be incorporated into a wide variety of foods, offering appetizing choices for those who suffer from loss of appetite or nausea. When marijuana is ingested rather than inhaled, the longer-lasting effects mean that relief continues for as long as 7 hours, allowing patients to get much-needed rest without continued dosing. Marijuana butter or oil can be used to prepare infused salsa, guacamole, pasta sauce, macaroni and cheese, French toast, and traditional treats like cookies, brownies, and candies.
To help patients receive the greatest benefit from ingesting medical marijuana, MI Organic Solutions offers a helpful and informative class that will guide you through the steps of creating infused butter and oil in your home.
