The one thing that all medical marijuana patients have in common is, they all have ailments that are next to impossible to treat with conventional medicine. If you’re a pain sufferer, you know how difficult it is to take opioids and not become addicted to them. There are people with HIV and cancer who couldn’t live another day without the help that marijuana provides. The conditions these people have are as real as it gets, and the solution has been right under our noses for what feels like an eternity.
A constant influx of new strains means new treatments
The hope for caregivers and patients alike is that a new strain will somehow come along and change the game forever. Maybe someone with Chron’s disease will suffer fewer symptoms if a strain comes along that can help them where others leave off.
You can’t possibly underestimate the impact new strains have on patients. When you have a debilitating disease, any ray of hope is enough to get you out of bed in the morning. That’s all some of these people have. And it’s clear as a bell that they’re holding out for the hope that someone tomorrow will be better than today.
You never know when the new strain is going to hit the shelf
Every marijuana dispensary in California wants to have the newest products available for their customers. It always doesn’t happen that way. Sometimes a new strain may hit a certain part of the state or a batch of stores first. You’ve got to keep your finger on the pulse of the industry, which isn’t always the easiest thing to do. The best way for you to do it is by keeping an eye on the sites of the dispensaries that you like to visit. Check with them every week or whenever you have a free minute to see if they have anything new.
Don’t be afraid to ask if they have anything new
Every so often, you should ask the person behind the counter if they have anything new. If they do, who knows, you might be able to pick up a gram at a discounted price. Sometimes store owners are keen on having customers try new strains, and they might knock a few bucks off the price. Sometimes you have to mix things up to see what works best for you, and the only way you can do that is through communication. See what’s new, ask if the worker has tried it or if customers have talked about it, and then give it a try yourself. Who knows, you might stumble upon something that could make your medical condition better.
