Series A: Youth Safety Series

Series B: First Time Patients Guide

Accompanying Copy: Consulting with your primary care physician about medical cannabis is a great place to start when deciding if cannabis is right for you. Feel free to bring documentation from credible sources like scientific studies or articles from major news publications. Because many doctors have limited experience with medical cannabis, many physicians may be hesitant to recommend it for that reason. Fortunately, they are not your only option for obtaining a medical card to legally purchase this medicine, as "cannabis clinics" with on-site doctors are common in all major cities. For more info and resources, please visit the CCIA's educational website safecannabisuse.com.  #safecannabisuse #ccia

Accompanying Copy: Obtaining a medical recommendation for cannabis is a very streamlined process in California. You can call ahead to make an appointment, but most cannabis clinics also accept walk-ins. The most important items to bring to your appointment are your California state-issued ID card or Driver’s License and any relevant medical records (though many clinics do not require the latter).

Accompanying Copy: First time in a Collective? “Budtenders” can be your best resource for determining which strain and products to try for your condition. They are known to spend anywhere from five to fifteen minutes with a single patient giving them the attention and support they need to make an informed decision. Be sure to let your Budtender know how important clean cannabis is to you (cannabis that tests negatively for chemicals, pesticides, and mold). For more info and resources, please visit the CCIA's educational website safecannabisuse.com. #safecannabisuse #ccia

 

Accompanying Copy: The spectrum of experiences using cannabis is vast and particular- starting with a small dose can help you have control over your session no matter what product you're using. Your 'minimum effective dose' may be a couple puffs from a pre-rolled joint, a single drop of tincture, or several inhales from a vaporizer pen. Cannabis edible products require a more in-depth discussion of safe use because of the considerable strength and duration of their effects. For more info and resources, please visit the CCIA's educational website safecannabisuse.com.  #safecannabisuse #ccia

Accompanying Copy: Edible products can have a wide range of potency, so it's essential to know the dose that's right for your body and condition. Your first few sessions of using edibles should be about research and discovery to ensure that you have a gentle, relaxing experience- and don’t over­-consume your medicine.  Visit safecannabisuse.com for more info and resources. For more info and resources, please visit the CCIA's educational website safecannabisuse.com.  #safecannabisuse #ccia

 

Accompanying Copy: Because of the genetic diversity in both cannabis and human beings, the effects of the plant are incredibly individualized. Find what works for you. Don’t underestimate the importance of setting an intention for your experience before you consume cannabis. Having clarity about why you are using the plant will help you harness it as a productive tool and help you avoid turning to it unconsciously. For more info and resources, please visit the CCIA's educational website safecannabisuse.com. #safecannabisuse #ccia

 

Accompanying Copy: Here are some tips to decrease the effects of ingesting too much cannabis, which can result in a host of uncomfortable physiological effects- including increased pulse and blood pressure, nausea and dizziness. Though no deaths have ever been attributed to an overdose, it can be a very distressing experience. Always remember that the best way to avoid an overwhelming experience is to know your limits before you consume. For more info and resources, please visit the CCIA's educational website safecannabisuse.com. #safecannabisuse #ccia
