Medical Marijuana: Explains Options for New Patients

  (July 14, 2012)

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 14, 2012

Medical marijuana can be confusing for new patients who are unfamiliar with the industry., the leading online medical cannabis resource, explains different options patients have for using cannabis to effectively treat a range of ailments.

We are aware that new medical marijuana patients can be intimidated by the overwhelming variety of available options, said John from Doobons. Our goal is to make medical marijuana easy to understand for patients who need professional, discreet answers. Something we get asked a lot about is the best method for consuming medical marijuana other than smoking.

Doobons breaks down patients other medical marijuana options:


Vaporizing is a popular choice for inhaling medical marijuana without the harmful effects of smoking. Vaporizers heat the marijuana without burning the plant, so the patient inhales the benefits of the active compounds without all the toxins normally produced by smoking. This is a good option for patients with severe appetite loss who dont want to smoke or cannot smoke.

Vaporizers range in size and price. Smaller battery-operated vaporizers are beneficial as a portable smokeless delivery system that can be used in places that dont allow smoking, while the larger plug-in devices are able to produce more powerful doses.

The medical marijuana pill Idrasil is gaining popularity as patients become more aware of their benefits. With a pill, there is no smoking or inhalation of any kind and Idrasils standardized 25-mg tablet delivers a consistent potency every time.

Idrasil, a product of C3 Patients Association, can be used to treat a variety of ailments and conditions such as AIDS and wasting syndrome, cancer, fibromyalgia, Crohns disease, Alzheimers disease, glaucoma, chronic pain, MS, Parkinsons disease, sleep disorders, anxiety and depression. It can also be useful for treating chemical dependency and withdrawal symptoms.

Medical Marijuana patients share their stories with Doobons. Learn more about how one patient used Idrasil to finally overcome her Crohns symptoms:


Hash oil or cannabis oil is useful for patients with more severe conditions, due to the higher potency and longer lasting effect. It is a more discreet option as well, as it can be added to food in the cooking process. The oil can also be infused in ointments, lotions, balms, or crèmes to apply topically in order to keep a clear head and regulate the dosage.

Cannabis oil is becoming a more well-known option for cancer patients. It made headlines recently when celebrity Tommy Chong announced he is using it to treat his prostate cancer, and a couple of years ago, pediatric cancer patient Cash Hyde made significant steps towards overcoming debilitating brain tumors when his father added cannabis oil to his treatment.

Edibles are foods infused with cannabis or cannabis oil that also provide a quick and appetizing alternative to smoking. The effects of eating an edible cannabis product are strong and last much longer than other options.

It may be difficult to judge the dosage with edibles, because it can take up to 60 minutes to start feeling the effects. Cannabis oil or butter can be used as a cooking ingredient in any food that contains butter and/or oil to create edible medicine.

The main thing to remember is that having options is good, said John. Tailoring your medical marijuana use to fit your needs can not only drastically improve your quality of life, but help you feel more comfortable with your medication.
