Forms Of Marijuana That Will Be Sold At Missouri Dispensaries
What Will Cannabis Prices Look Like Once The Program Rolls Out?
Missouri is one of the only states to estimate an over-supply of medical marijuana as the program launches. With 192 licensed dispensaries in the state it's no wonder the anticipation is abundant. An abundance of medical cannabis introduced into the market as the program launches will likely result in lower prices than other medical states. The prices are bound to be the highest in early 2020 and slowly diminish in price as the year goes on.
Marijuana in it's most natural form. Effects will take effect immediately but only last for about 1-2 hours.
This form has become more well-known as CBD tinctures can often be found in stores. Tinctures in dispensaries will be cannabis-derived and include THC and other important medical cannabinoids. The effects can take effect almost immediately, and tend to wear off within 2-4 hours.
This can come in a variety of different consistencies, from crumble, to sauce, to budder, or even shatter (pictured blow).
Concentrates are typically recommended for patients with debilitating conditions or have an extremely high THC tolerance as THC percentages can reach up to 92%.
Food that is marijuana-infused. Edibles are metabolized by the liver, and this process causes:
Longer onset (can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours to kick in)
A more intense effect (THC is converted into a more potent form)
Can last up to 8 hours, the effects will be compounded over that time
This form of marijuana is applied on your skin to directly help specific problem areas. This is a helpful solution for patients with chronic pain in certain areas.
