Medical Marijuana

Medical marijuana has always been the first step in legalizing marijuana across the nation. For Kentuckians, this first step was taken last year, when Governor Andy Beshear pushed to legalize medical marijuana

There is a catch to this, however: Kentuckians need to drive out of state to get their medical marijuana. In fact, there are multiple catches, as this law only permits usage of medical marijuana for for people with certain, severe medical conditions. 

You will also need a written “permission slip” from a doctor that you must present at the out-of-state dispensary. 

Oh, and you can only possess eight ounces of medical marijuana at a time, so expect to make multiple trips for any long-term issues. 

However, this first step is nonetheless significant, despite the restrictions. Medical marijuana has been a hot-button issue for decades now. Read on to find out more about medical marijuana. 

The Struggle to Legalize Medical Marijuana

Of course, the controversy about medical marijuana has to do with THC. 

THC is the main ingredient in the cannabis “high”. In more official terms, it is a psychoactive compound. 

Because of this, medical marijuana is controversial. The whole reason recreational marijuana is not federally legalized is because of the THC content of marijuana. 

However, the side effects of marijuana still make it questionable in the eyes of certain lawmakers and medical professionals. 

However, hemp is federally legalized. Hemp and marijuana are both varieties of cannabis, the key difference being that marijuana has higher THC content. 

However, hemp products can still feature enough THC to offer an experience close to medical marijuana. 

Medical Cannabis That You Don’t Need to Travel Out of State For

Some people do not qualify for medical marijuana in Kentucky, or simply do not want to travel out of state. Yet, they could still benefit from the health effects of cannabis. 

Specifically, hemp-derived cannabis products with THC, CBD, or both. 

These are a good alternative because they feature those key compounds (i.e., THC and CBD) found in medical marijuana. 

Hectare’s and Bourbon Country Cannabis offer a wide variety of CBD and Delta 8 and Delta 9 THC products with wellness benefits. 

One of these is our cbdMD Delta 9 Vegan THC Gummies. These come in two flavors, cherry and blue razz. The 5:1 CBD-to-THC ratio is also an optimal ratio for wellness benefits. CBD tends to offer pain relief and sleep aid, and the THC offers an extra boost to these effects.
