Louisiana Legislation has approved several forms of marijuana for medicinal use. These include:
- Tinctures: Liquid extracts of cannabis that are typically taken under the tongue for rapid absorption. They allow for precise dosing and are often used for their fast-acting effects.
- Edibles: Food products infused with cannabis, such as gummies or brownies, which are ingested orally. The cannabinoids take longer to take effect compared to inhalation but provide a longer-lasting experience.
- Metered-dose Inhalers: Inhaler devices that deliver a precise and controlled dose of cannabinoids when inhaled. They are similar to asthma inhalers and offer a smoke-free method of consumption.
- Medical Marijuana Distillate: A highly purified cannabis extract that contains a high concentration of cannabinoids, typically used for creating various cannabis products like edibles, tinctures, or vape cartridges.
- Marijuana Flower: The dried and cured buds of the cannabis plant, which can be smoked or vaporized for their therapeutic effects.
