Frequently asked questions
Is cannabis addictive?
While Cannabis itself, is not known to be addictive, there are reports of a condition, which is called, Cannabis Use Disorder, which relates to the time spent consuming cannabis, moods related to cannabis use, cravings, dosages, and quality of life impacts. This yes and no answer, depends specifically on the patient using, or self- medicating with cannabis.
I'm a new medicinal cannabis patient, using edibles for the first time. What is a safe amount to consume at once?
Each patient is different, which is why self- titration is best. Try smaller amounts, and work your way up to a comfortable dose. Beginning patients should never start off with what could be considered a regular recommended dosage.
Is it possible to overdose on Cannabis or any other cannabinoid based medicinal product?
While prescription painkillers cause thousands of overdose deaths each year, no one has ever died from a marijuana overdose.
But is it even possible to overdose on weed? The answer is no, according to the National Cancer Institute. And here’s why:
“Because cannabinoid receptors, unlike opioid receptors, are not located in the brainstem areas controlling respiration, lethal overdoses from Cannabis and cannabinoids do not occur.”
In other words, marijuana and opioids affect different pathways of the body. Opioid pathways, also known as receptors, are present in areas of the brain that control breathing. As a result, taking too many painkillers can cause a person to stop breathing.
But marijuana acts on a completely different set of pathways. These pathways are called cannabinoid receptors and they do not affect respiration. Thus, marijuana cannot cause someone to stop breathing, no matter how much they ingest.
