Patients need to have the new route added to their recommendation in order for the dispensaries to sell them.
If you are one of our patients, we can add the EDIBLE ROUTE free of charge. Just complete the following form to have it added and please allow 24-48 business hours to have it added.
If you are not one of our patients, you’ll need to contact your doctor to have it added. Most likely they will not charge you for that but some already have a fee in place if you request it.
Dispensaries still need to have the edibles approved by the DOH and this process might take 3-4 weeks. In the mean time, some dispensaries like Trulieve and Curaleaf are already selling a sublingual form very similar to what will be coming out in the near future.
With Edibles, always remember that they take longer to kick in so wait 1hr to 1.5hrs before taking another dose and START LOW and GO SLOW to avoid any negative side effects.
