What’s Your preferred consumption method? Do you have special precautions you have to follow to avoid additional side-effects? Can Cannabis capsules reduce side-effects?

Not all patients can or prefer to consume Cannabis the same way. Smoking, vaping, edibles and a needle injection of the marijuanas through the eyeball aren’t great options for many. Cannabis oil medicating massages and suppositories aside, capsules are the easiest way to consume Cannabis with the least side-effects. Most keiki and kupuna can swallow a capsule of Cannabis without additional safety concerns.

According to a quote in Pacific Business News, Maui Grown Therapies will be selling capsules with varying ingredients and dosages. Greg Yim, Maui Grown Therapies’ chief medical officer, said in a statement. “So, we’re happy the State Labs Division recently certified one of the labs to test them. Patients will find the capsules to be easy to use, especially for overnight relief of pain, inflammation or nausea.” “Physicians have been asking for dose-regulated capsules for quite some time.”

As long as there are no other ingredients in or on the capsule, a capsule can be a great consumption method. So we’re extremely happy for folks on Maui who will soon be able to medicate with a capsule. We’re interested to hear what you find out in the store.
