When your doctor prescribes medical cannabis, they will likely offer two primary forms: cannabis flower and cannabis oil.
Cannabis flower represents the dried bud of the cannabis plant, and it’s what usually comes to mind when people think of marijuana. With over 770 varieties, known as strains or cultivars, each one is carefully grown to produce specific flavors and effects.
On the other hand, cannabis oils are a more recent development and involve distilling and concentrating the oils from the cannabis plant, sometimes with a focus on specific cannabinoids. Patients typically consume cannabis oils as a straight oil using a dropper, but they can also be prescribed as capsules, lozenges, or used topically in cannabis creams.
The combination of both cannabis flower and cannabis oil in a treatment plan might be recommended by a doctor for specific reasons. Each form offers unique benefits.
