It’s not uncommon for customers to wonder how medical cannabis is different from recreational use. It’s a great question! So here we go:
In the end, it all depends on your purpose for using cannabis. Do you want to just enjoy the “high” effects of THC? If yes, then you would be partaking in recreational cannabis. Now if you want to reap the beneficial effects of cannabis, you would be using medical cannabis. In this case, you aren’t consuming cannabis for euphoric effects. Taking cannabis for health purposes could assist a wide variety of concerns, such as:
- Chronic pain (fibromyalgia, arthritis)
- Gastrointestinal issues
- Appetite stimulation
Recreational cannabis in Ontario an be purchased through legal dispensaries. Medical cannabis, on the other hand, cannot be purchased through a dispensary. If you want an official medical cannabis prescription though, this would have to be obtained through a physician who specializes in this area of medicine.
