The potency of marijuana varies by genetic and individual harvest and each patient may have a unique and different response to an individual batch of marijuana. Consult your certifying physician for medical advice about what genetics may be right for your treatment and make sure to record your indica- tions with individual genetics, potencies, and frequencies of usage of marijuana for medical use. Please feel free to ask general questions to any Patriot Care RMD Agent for general information about particular strains, strengths, and dosage.
ISOLATING YOUR DESIRED ACTIVE INGREDIENTS AND DOSING
For simplicity we recommend that all patients pick a starting dose of THC or Cannabi- noids (CBD) of between 5 and 10 milligrams (mgs). Each patient should prepare and take their first dose and record its effects and determine whether or not the individual dosing amount is too high or low, or is effective to attain the desired effect.
Each gram of marijuana for medical use contains a certain percentage of active ingredients (THC & the collective Cannabinoids). When using flower the active ingredients represent the medicine and the flower’s biomass the delivery vehicle. When you, and your certifying physician, determine an effective dose you can calculate the total number of doses in each gram by following the following equations. Note: Each gram of marijuana for medical use flower is composed of 1000 milligrams of mass which when multiplied by the total cannabinoid profile will yield the number of mgs of active ingredients. The total number of active ingredients divided by your chosen dose will provide you with a guide to how many uses, and what proportion of the flower, needs to be used.
Inhaled Products: With any product that is inhaled we recommend waiting a minimum of half an hour prior to taking an additional dose, or increasing dosage.
Edibles: It is our recommendation that all patients wait at least two hours prior to taking another dose of any edible product.
