FLOWER DOSING ADVISEMENT
WHAT IS FLOWER?
Dried flower refers to medical marijuana buds, which can be broken up either by hand, with scissors, or with a grinder and inhaled.
For beginners, consider starting with a balanced THC-to-CBD ratio, such as 1:1. You’ll likely want a strain low in THC that contains an equal or higher level of CBD to balance it out.
PROPER PRODUCT ADMINISTRATION
WHY SMOKE FLOWER?
When smoking medical marijuana, you burn the ground bud with a lighter and inhale; this method of administration delivers medical effects much quicker than consuming edibles.
Breathing deeply helps maximize the effects of inhalation-based methods, such as smoking a joint, using a pipe, or smoking a bong. It is a myth that you need to hold the smoke for extended time in your lungs to get the desired effects – simply breathe it out normally.

MISSOURI MARIJUANA EQUIVALENCY UNITS
Monthly Purchase Limits – Qualified patients are allowed to purchase up to 4oz. (32 MMEs) of compliant product per month.
A common purchase quantity of marijuana is 3.5 grams which is equal to 1 MME. This means that 1 MME is also equivalent to 1 gram of marijuana concentrate or 100mg of THC-infused product
7 GRAMS OF MARIJUANA + 4 GRAMS
OF MARIJUANA CONCENTRATE
7 grams of marijuana = 7 ÷ 3.5 = 2 MMEs
4 grams of concentrates = 4 ÷ 1 = 4 MMEs
200mg of THC infused product = 200 ÷ 100 = 2 MMEs
2 + 4 + 2 = 8 MMEs
32 MMEs – 8 = 24 MMEs remaining from monthly
allotment (from above example.)
