Marijuana grown, sold and used for medical purposes became legal in Missouri on Dec. 6, but no one is allowed to do anything with the drug until they receive approval by state regulators. That could be as early as December for business owners applying to grow marijuana commercially, and as early as July 28 for patients applying to grow it at home.

Missouri requires that after Dec. 31, 2020, anyone growing marijuana legally must obtain seeds or plants from a business licensed by the state. But it takes at least a few months for a crop to mature, so growers licensed by January won't have any legal in-state sources for marijuana seeds or young plants

 

CBD chocolate is a great way to get your daily dose of cannabinoids. However, you should note that CBD edibles may not have as high an absorption rate as other methods of taking CBD. This is because the active compounds pass through your digestive system and liver, and some get lost along the way.

The most effective methods of consuming CBD are sublingual (under the tongue), vaping, or topicals. We do carry CBD vaping products in our clinics. Call us today to shedule your medical cannabis card consultation.

 

Benefits of Marijuana: some small studies support the idea that marijuana can have beneficial results for certain ailments. One of the ways scientists think it may help with pain is by reducing inflammation, a component of painful illnesses like rheumatoid arthritis.

A preliminary 2005 study of 58 patients with RA, roughly half of whom were given a placebo and roughly half of whom were given a cannabis-based medicine called Sativex, found "statistically significant improvements in pain on movement, pain at rest ... and quality of sleep" for patients on Sativex. If you experience a chronic pain, you should be eligible to obtain a medical marijuana card. Please visit us or call us for the appointment.
