Medication Without Intoxication

It will be a while before Arizona has as many medication options as California, Colorado, and Montana.

There are a number of strains in these states that are low in THC (tetrahydrocannibinol) and high in CBD (cannabidiol). This will usually cut down on the “high” feeling that marijuana causes and allow the medicating properties of cannabis to be used for their intended purposes primarily as an anti inflammatory.

Although these strains are new, another form has been in usage for as long as marijuana has been used as medicine. The tincture is an alcohol or glycerin based liquid and until marijuana was banned in 1937, this was the way to medicate.

Some of the cannabinoids such as cannibidiol (CBD) actually reduce the psychoactive effects of THC while increasing the overall efficacy of the preparation.

This medication is best used sublingually (under the tongue) as the medicine is rapidly absorbed into the arterial system and is quickly transported to the brain and body.
