Have you ever been in a situation where you thought something would last longer than it did? If you have found yourself in this situation with your medical marijuana prescription, you’re not alone! It’s easy to go through copious amounts of medical marijuana depending on the qualifying condition you are treating and what your tolerance is. Lucky for you, there are actually ways you can stretch or expand your medical marijuana stash while still finding relief from the unpleasant symptoms related to your qualifying condition.
1. Use a Grinder
Did you know by grinding up your weed actually helps it last longer? People who prefer not to use a grinder, actually end up wasting more of their cannabis than those who opt for using a grinder. When you pick apart your cannabis instead of using a grinder, you are actually wasting your weed because much of the sticky trichomes can get stuck on your fingers which is the most potent part of your medication.
2. Budget the Weed
Even though it’s medicine, unfortunately, you still have to pay for it. One way you can stretch your stash is by budgeting out your medical marijuana like you would other important expenses. One way you can achieve this goal is by purchasing your medication on sale days or buying in bulk, and budgeting your weed consumption for the month or week, or whatever works best with your lifestyle. This lets you know ahead of time what you have spent, what you have, and how much you can afford.
3. Switch Up Your Cannabis Strains
Just like with pharmaceuticals, cannabis affects everyone differently. Some strains work well for some, while others experience the total opposite effect. This could be due to a variety of factors such as body chemistry, tolerance, terpene profiles, THC content, and more. Another way to stretch your cannabis is by switching up your routine and trying something different. Try experimenting with a different strain, as you may find you can use less because the effects are more powerful.
4. Add CBD
Some patients find it beneficial when adding in a little CBD flower with their THC dominant flower. Adding CBD can help relieve anxiety, inflammation, and depression. Some patients actually prefer adding in CBD with their THC dominant flower because it tones down the psychoactive effects that many patients experience when using THC dominant products, while also making their THC dominant stash last much longer.
