When you use a lot of pharmaceutical medications each month, it’s important to fill them at pharmacies with reputable and knowledgeable pharmacists.
Sometimes your doctor might prescribe you medication that has a rare but serious side effect with another medication you’re already taking. A good pharmacist will catch this omission and notify you before giving you the new drug. This happened to me once with a new allergy medication that was known to cause heart problems when mixed with certain SSRI drugs. Since I already have irregular heart rhythms, I am particularly vulnerable to heart related drug side effects. I was thankful that my pharmacist was looking out for my best interests. Although that’s also directly correlated to their job security, I benefit all the same. You may not ever have deadly side effects to think about when buying cannabis from a reputable dispensary, but it helps to know what you can expect from whatever strains are available. Sativa strains will stimulate your mind and encourage your creativity, while indica strains often mellow people out and make them feel tired after taking more than a single dose. It doesn’t matter if you have good budtenders at the cannabis dispensaries that you visit. When you use cannabis for specific medical effects, it’s essential to know what the genetics are of the strain you’re about to try. Most of the time you can’t return opened products, so you need to ask the budtender before making the purchase. My favorite medical cannabis store has some of the most professional and knowledgeable budtenders that I’ve met in the whole industry since I became a patient five years ago. They answer any marijuana related question that I have for them.
