As a medical marijuana patient, I am not only expected to bring my medical records to a doctor’s office in order to be approved for my medical marijuana card, I then am over-charged twice, once by the state then by the doctor that approved me.
Once I receive my medical card and go into a dispensary, I am then turned to the front line of Cannabis, the budtenders. As a budtender, their role is to be able to advise us on what will help with our medical conditions, so why am I faced with someone that knows nothing about the plant?
Every strain consists of different terpenes and cannabinoids. The combination of which is in each strain is the key to any type of treatment. So many of the budtenders are only pushing a THC count, and that’s even if it’s been tested.
Which is completely wrong for actual medical purposes.
Are the budtenders listening to you? Find out where your flower comes from, who grows it, how it’s processed and ask for the lab tests. Cannabis can help any ailment as long as it’s the right strain.
I know how hard it is to receive the proper medicine. Repeatedly, from 2011 to 2016 budtenders would sell me products that made my conditions worse. Luckily, I have done all my own independent studying of strains. Through this knowledge I have lost over 70 pounds in one year’s time and am also off three pharmaceuticals. The knowledge is out there.
As a patient in a legal drug dealing dispensary, I have to know what I need to treat my own conditions. Other cannabis patients have to do the same since the industry still is lacking in the knowledge department. I strongly encourage everyone to educate themselves, knowledge is the cure. Know what you are buying and how it can react. We are all molecularly different and our cannabinoid receptors vary for each individual. Stand up for yourself and your medicine.
ARIZONA, we voted it medical, so please sell us medicine.

When I was forced off opioids and abandoned by my doctors, no one had good answers on how to deal with my pain. Much less how to tell me to taper safely off opioids. I turned to medical marijuana. I was left to learn on my own at a time when I needed help the most. I vowed that no patient should be left looking for medical marijuana help without quality medical support. Being a medical professional provided me with tools and knowledge most patients don’t have. That wasn’t enough; my journey was hard and left me lying in a hospital fighting for my life. That is why I created Effective Cannabis. We provide patients with One-on-One support to help them on their cannabis journey. Learning to use cannabis successfully is more than picking up the latest strain or product at the dispensary.
Our Pharmacist and medical specialist review your medical conditions, and prescriptions to determine how you should proceed. Most don’t even know or understand how CBD and THC can affect how some of your prescribed medications work or process through your system. Essential to understand if you want to achieve the very best results. We are finding quality results in treatments for over 75 medical conditions. From insomnia, RLS, MS, chronic pain, MAC lung, COPD and cancer, to name a few.
We work to provide each patient with the knowledge to develop a treatment plan tailored to their health. Learning to treat one medical condition well is hard enough, and most of us live with multiple medical conditions. We do this for Free because we believe each person is important and their health matters. It matters to us! Each of us that works with you have learned how to improve our health and life with cannabis.
We are treating medical conditions that our doctors have little to no treatments to provide. Cannabis has given us a life we never thought we could have again. If we don’t approach this correctly, most will never achieve a quality treatment. Medical cannabis should not be about getting lucky. We can’t and shouldn’t expect a budtender to know how to treat our medical conditions. If doctors haven’t been able to find quality treatments, are we going to placing all our hopes on a budtender? We would love to help you and the millions on this journey. effectivecannabis.com.
