    • Flower: This is the most traditional form of cannabis, which includes the dried buds of the plant that are smoked or vaporized.

    • Concentrates: These are potent forms of cannabis made by extracting THC and other cannabinoids. Concentrates come in various forms like wax, shatter, and oil. 

    • Edibles: Cannabis-infused food products, such as cookies, brownies, gummies, or chocolates, offer an alternative to smoking or vaping. The effects of edibles take longer to kick in but can be more intense and longer-lasting.

    • Tinctures: These liquid cannabis extracts are typically administered under the tongue. They provide a smoke-free option and allow for precise dosing.

    • Topicals: These cannabis-infused lotions, balms, and oils can be applied directly to the skin for localized relief of pain, soreness, and inflammation.

    • Capsules: Similar to edibles, capsules are a smoke-free option that contains cannabis oil or dried cannabis in a digestible format.

    • Transdermal Patches: These patches are placed on the skin and deliver cannabis directly into the bloodstream over a prolonged period, providing consistent, long-term relief.

    • Vaporizers: Devices are used to heat cannabis flower or concentrates to a temperature that releases cannabinoids and terpenes in the form of vapor, without the harmful byproducts of smoke.

    The availability of these products can vary depending on the dispensary, and it's important to consult with your physician to understand what product and dosage is best for your specific medical condition.
