Ask a Cannabis Nurse

Now that Michigan is recreationally legal for marijuana, what are the benefits of getting the medical card?

Ask a Cannabis Nurse - PigfishDimeMag.comThe most practical reason to keep a medical cannabis card is how it affects your pocketbook.

Depending on the patient and how much cannabis is consumed, the savings could be a few hundred dollars annually as medical patients pay less than recreational consumers.

Currently, there are a very limited number of recreational provisioning centers open. Having a medical cannabis card allows for access to more stores.

Medical cannabis patients frequently have access to products that aren’t readily available to adult use customers.

For example, cannabis cultivars that present with a higher CBD content are ideal for a medical cannabis consumer. These products are often lower in THC or contain a ratio of CBD to THC that renders the THC not as dominant as the cultivars most adult use consumers seek.

Likewise, there are more demands on the part of medical consumers for terpene and full cannabinoid reporting on medical products. If you wish to curate your user experience by selecting particular terpene or cannabinoid profiles, the medical dispensary will often offer more products with extensive testing and reporting.

Most importantly, having a medical card protects a consumer who maintains a professional license in the state of Michigan. This is a protection that protects your livelihood if you are a cannabis consumer.
