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.

MARIJUANA
FLOWER
3.5 grams

MARIJUANA
CONCENTRATE
1 gram

THC-INFUSED
PRODUCT
100 mg

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

EXAMPLE PURCHASE

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.)
