CBD products: they’re seemingly everywhere, in many different forms. In Florida, you can also purchase a wide variety of THC products (assuming you’re eligible and have gone through the steps to get a marijuana card in our state). Many products contain both marijuana compounds, and specific products have THC-to-CBD ratios designed for specific symptoms.

At AMRX in St. Petersburg, our team is here to help you wade through all the options. We know we can help you find a THC or CBD product that provides the relief you need and deserve. To arrange an appointment with us, please call 727-209-5470.

How are THC and CBD Different?

THC and CBD provide distinct benefits. The main difference – and, honestly, the difference that people care about the most – is that THC provides a euphoric high. CBD provides a wide array of benefits without the high. For that reason, some people choose to use a product containing only CBD if they know they will be using the product throughout the day. That way, the feeling of being high doesn’t get in the way of their daily routine! Just as often, people find that one combination works the best for their particular pain and other symptoms, and so they tend to stick with using that product.

There is typically some overlap between THC and CBD, but in general, you may prefer CBD for:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Pain and discomfort
  • Seizures
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Inflammation

And THC, although it can be beneficial for the symptoms above, may be chosen for its ability to fight:

  • Poor appetite
  • Muscle spasticity
  • Glaucoma
  • Insomnia
  • Nausea
  • Anxiety

There are many options available for purchase at Florida Medical Marijuana Treatment Centers (a.k.a. dispensaries). We consider it part of our services and ongoing care to guide you through the purchasing experience. We don’t want you to leave our practice and enter the MMTC unprepared. There are many things to purchase and we’ll make sure you know what to expect, what to ask for, and what substitutions can be made if they don’t have exactly what you are looking for.

Let Our Experienced Physicians Help You Find the Right Combination

THC and CBD are just some of the aspects of choosing a marijuana product. We can also help you make decisions about:

  • The way it is used, i.e. vaping, smoking, capsules, tinctures, oils, etc.
  • The strain, i.e. indica, sativa or a hybrid
  • The dosing for your particular symptoms or illness

Our patients visit us with wide-ranging knowledge about these things. We’re happy to provide you with complete information if you feel you don’t know the first thing about cannabis, and we can help people who have already used medical marijuana fine tune their dosing and other options.
