Are you a medical cannabis patient?
If so, then you know that shopping for the right product can be difficult. You want to make sure you’re getting the best quality and value for your money. But there are some common mistakes people make when they shop online.
But don’t worry, we are here to help. Here are six of the most common medical cannabis shopping mistakes that people make when buying medical cannabis online and how you can avoid them.
1. Not Doing Your Research Beforehand
In the land of medical cannabis, there is an overwhelming number of options from which consumers can choose. There is a huge selection of strains to pick from, with different levels and ratios of cannabinoids present in each strain (THC, CBD, CBN, CBC).
Also, it’s also good to research any medical cannabis store you are looking at. Look at online customer reviews and start comparing cannabis prices.
2. Not Knowing What Dosage Works Well for Their Body Type/Size/Needs Etc
Cannabis affects everyone differently, but just because one 10mg THC edible worked for your friend or sibling does not mean it will work the same way for you. Be sure to do your own research on what dosage is best/recommended before trying anything new.
3. Not Being Mindful of What They Are Smoking/Vaping/Consuming
This ties into the point above about knowing your medicine and dosage. It’s very easy to get caught up in the moment and find yourself consuming more than you meant to.
Because of this, it’s important that when medicating with cannabis that you do so mindfully— take it slow, understand what your medicine does for your body, be aware of how much you are taking in during each session, etc.
4. Not Knowing Which Method Is Best for Them
One of the most common misconceptions about medical cannabis is that smoking or vaping is better than eating an edible or taking a tincture/capsule. While it is true that smoking and vaping may produce a faster effect, there are many other factors to consider when choosing the right method for you.

5. Not Knowing How Long Their Medicine Is Good For
When it comes to edibles, they typically do not go bad as long as you keep them away from heat/light and store them properly in a cool/dry place. However, most other forms such as concentrates, flowers, etc. can lose potency over time especially if they are exposed to light/heat during storage which makes it important to date everything with the day it was made/purchased so that you know when something needs to be thrown out or disposed of.
6. Not Knowing Who Their Medical Cannabis Provider Is
This ties back into the points made earlier about not thinking that your dealer/friend/stranger on the street can provide you with medicine simply by asking them for some weed to medicate with. Always be aware of where and from whom your medicine comes from as it can make all the difference when it comes to safety, quality and effectiveness.
