Returning To Cannabis: Here’s What You Need To Know

Understanding New Potency & Consumption Options for Patients Returning To Cannabis

Medical marijuana is now legal in 33 states, and its popularity is at an all-time high (pun intended). For patients returning to cannabis after a few years or more, there is much to learn. 

Today’s medical marijuana is far more potent than the marijuana of a few years ago, let alone decades ago. 

Patients are advised to ease back into using medical marijuana products so that they can control their experience and slowly build up their tolerance. 

Let’s take a look at what you need to know if you’re returning to using cannabis after some time.

What Is A Good Way To Ease Back Into Enjoying Cannabis?

Whether years have passed since you’ve explored marijuana options, or even if you have never tried the plant before, it’s always best to start with a low dose and gradually work your way up. You can always increase your dosage later if need be. 

There are various methods of medicating, ranging from flower to vape cartridges to sublingual drops, and more. Explore all the options here

You’ll want to be in the comfort of your own home, or with close friends, and start slowly. The experience will be more pleasant if you don’t suddenly overwhelm your body with a high dose of THC. 

It is best to start with one to two short puffs (around 3 seconds) of a FLUENT pre-roll, such as Odra. Odra is derived from the classic OG Kush strain and delivers a relaxing, euphoric, and mildly drowsy high. 

For those who don’t wish to smoke, a vape cartridge is a great alternative. FLUENT’s Elara Cartridge is a 1:1 blend of CBD and THC, creating a mild euphoria without the heavy, sluggish effects associated with high THC products.  Perfect for dipping your toes back into the cannabis waters, Elara can help alleviate stress and pain quickly and discreetly.

FLUENT’s Sublingual Drops are another great way to medicate in a discreet and controlled way. For a classic, energizing and motivational Sativa, Subra is your best option. Derived from the beloved strain Sour Diesel, Subra is designed to provide a dreamy cerebral high with stimulating and uplifting body effects. It goes to work quickly, and all it takes is a couple of drops under the tongue. 

How Is Today’s Cannabis Different? 

With rigorous standards in the areas of growth, quality, and consistency, FLUENT’s medical marijuana products are all backed by years of expertise and care. 

Today’s cannabis is much more potent and effective than that of previous decades. For example, the average THC level in cannabis in the 1980s was below 10%. Today, whole flower can have THC levels as high as 30%. You can even purchase medical marijuana products that carry more than 80% THC (such as concentrates).
