Cannabis is federally illegal in the United States, but many states have legalized medical marijuana for valid medical conditions. Sever states even have legalized cannabis for both medical and adult use. Medical marijuana card requirements vary by state. Keep in mind that New York state doesn’t permit smoking medical-grade cannabis or edibles. Oils have to be used with an inhaler or through oral capsules. Forms and dosage of medical-grade cannabis have to be approved by the state. Approved types include solid or semi-solid dosage such as capsules, tablets, and lozenges. You can use metered liquid or oil, plant preparations, and topical or transdermal patches.
