3 Things You Can Do With The Medical Marijuana You're Getting From Your Dispensary

Posted on

Now that you have been prescribed medical marijuana to treat your health condition, you are probably wondering what you can do with your medication after picking it up from your cannabis dispensary. Luckily, you don't have to smoke your medical marijuana if you don't want to. Here are a few alternative ways to gain the benefits of your medical marijuana:

Turn it Into Cooking Oil

You can use the medical marijuana you get from your dispensary to make some oil to cook with when you're preparing meals in the kitchen. All you have to do is choose your favorite carrier oil such as olive, canola, or even hemp to get started. Pour an entire bottle of oil into a large pot and warm the oil up over medium heat until it just starts boiling, then turn the heat down until the oil simmers.

While the oil warms up, use a blender or coffee grinder to grind your medical marijuana up into tiny pieces. Throw the tiny pieces into the oil and allow the concoction to simmer for an hour or so. Then strain the oil through a cheesecloth or piece of fine mesh and transfer the oil into a bottle that you can seal. You can use the oil to saute vegetables, pour as a salad dressing, and even add it to your sauces.

Bake Some Goodies With It

Your medical marijuana can also come in handy when you're baking goods in the kitchen. You can always use your infused oil instead of regular vegetable oil and butter when baking goods, but you can also just grind some of your medical marijuana buds up and add the ground mixture into everything from cookies and cakes, to breads and biscuits.

The ground marijuana will add a little extra depth and flavor to your baked goods, so you may not want to use it in plain breads and biscuits. But the grounds should enhance both sweet and savory goods of all kinds.

Pair it With a Vaporizer

If you don't like inhaling the smoke of marijuana, you can try using a vaporizer instead. A vaporizer processes the smoke of the marijuana to provide a clean, smokeless vapor that can be inhaled without worry of coughing and throat irritation.

And vaporizers won't produce any smells that might be offensive to yourself or others that you're sharing your space with. Vaporizers come in a variety of sizes, styles, and colors which makes them a fun accessory to keep around that may help keep your spirits up while using your medical marijuana to treat your health condition.
