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

 

Extreme high dose of marijuana can have a significant effect on your pet.
While this is an extremely high dose, you should know that if your cat or dog accidentally eats an edible or inhales smoke, it could suffer effects such as:

    Loss of coordination
    Seizures with the potential to fall into a coma
    Slow heart rate
    Vomiting
    Depression and anxiety

Fortunately, cats are picky eaters and are less likely to ingest cannabis. Cats don’t have a sweet tooth naturally, nor are they attracted to dried buds or unfinished joints.

 

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.
