Marijuana has been used as a healing agent throughout history and in many cultures. The first known medicinal use of the plant dates back to 2900 BC in China during the time of Emperor Fu Hsi.
Marijuana falls under the genus Cannabis, which includes a number of different species. The two species that are used as marijuana are Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica. These plants have 3 major active compounds – THC, CBD, and CBN.
THC was first synthesized in 1966 and was approved by the USFDA in 1985 to treat nausea in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. Soon after, more beneficial properties of marijuana in certain medical conditions were discovered.
Medical marijuana is effective for pain relief, anorexia, muscle spasm, and nausea and vomiting. Benefits are likewise seen in mood regulation, immune function, digestion, and vascular health. While research is limited, neuroprotection in cases of multiple sclerosis and other movement disorders have also been noted.
As with anything, marijuana does have side effects. Dizziness, euphoria, and short-term memory loss are common examples. Also, because of its analgesic and euphoric effects, its use for recreational purposes has increased greatly in the past half century, which led to its classification as a Schedule 1 drug under the Controlled Substances Act of 1970.
Shopping for high-quality marijuana products at a trusted dispensary is crucial to secure health and safety. At Altitude Organic Medicine, our mission is to offer the best products at prices that are reasonable to almost anyone. Our plants are methodically cared for to ensure a potent and effective final product for every patient.
We offer a variety of top-quality medical marijuana products including flowers, edibles, and topical treatments. You can choose from indica, sativa, or hybrid strains. Beyond strains, selecting the right flowers for your needs can be personal. When you visit one of our dispensaries, you’ll be able to check our flower products yourself. Check the smell and coloring, look for trichome crystals, and feel free to ask questions.
We also have edibles if you are looking for something more convenient and delicious. They come in many different forms, including cereal bars, cookies, chocolate bars, gummies, suckers, and more. However, unlike smoking, which hits your bloodstream quickly, edibles may have a delayed effect of approximately 30 minutes to 2 hours due to digestion and liver metabolism.
You can also enjoy medical marijuana in the form of a spray! Applied directly on the skin, this topical provides localized relief for pain and inflammation without the possible side effects produced by other methods of consumption.
We at Altitude Organic Medicine pride ourselves on having knowledgeable bud tenders and top-notch customer service. With convenient locations throughout Colorado, we are among the most trusted sources of cannabis products that help people to be well and live longer.
While other states still oppose the use of marijuana for medical objectives, here in Colorado, our laws currently allow marijuana use by approved patients with doctors’ prescriptions. One may buy up to 2 ounces of this medicinal plant and grow up to six plants—three of which can be allowed to mature and flower at any given time. If deemed necessary, doctors may recommend a larger amount.
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has also established the Medical Marijuana Registry Program. They issue ID cards and keep a registry of all marijuana patients and caregivers.
We are one with the local government in ensuring our people’s welfare. Don’t forget to present your medical marijuana card online when placing orders in advance. Keep it handy when you pick up your products at our dispensary. We are also strictly reinforcing social distancing and taking other necessary precautions. If you have any questions, please contact us now.
