I guess I was expecting a lot more when medical cannabis was first legalized in our home state.
- The two of us waited for years and many attempts at voting for the law on our election ballot until it was finally passed about 6 years ago.
I guess that most cannabis users had the minimal expectation that they would at bare minimum be able to buy whole flower products like you’d get off the street from any random weed dealer. Instead, the conservative government here imposed unconstitutional restrictions on the medical cannabis market and stripped it down to only cannabis tinctures, capsules, vaporizer cartridges, and oil syringes. You couldn’t buy whole cannabis flower products until 2018, and that was after a back and forth legal battle with the governor and his unhinged attorney general. It took us electing a up-to-date governor for the government to ditch the ban on smokable cannabis flower products, which still frustrates myself and others to this day. That’s after having access to whole flower products for the past four years straight now. But there are other products available nowadays that I’m growing increasingly impressed by what we’re able to purchase as medical cannabis patients in this state. I used to like marijuana oil pens until I got sick of paying high prices for cheap THC distillate oil thrown into cartridges with some botanical terpenes for flavor. When I heard that full spectrum, solventless rosin cartridges would be available for marijuana oil pens, I was amazed. I have dabbed rosin before and like the rich terpenes that it contains. Rosin is extracted with heat and pressure so there are no dangerous solvents used in its manufacturing process.
