Medical Marijuana Products In Pennsylvania

Medical marijuana products in each state vary according to their laws. In Pennsylvania, the products available to medical marijuana patients vary in delivery method, too.

Pills / capsules are one of the ways cannabis patients can medicate with medical marijuana. As with any supplement you may already be taking, these are either compressed pills or capsules filled with medical marijuana.

Oils are extractions of the cannabis plant suspended in a carrier oil, such as coconut or olive, and taken sublingually (under the tongue). Oils can take 15 to 20 minutes for the onset of effects and can be microdosed. A micro-dose is typically under five milligrams, but that can vary by patient based on their medical needs and tolerance.
