The road to legal medical cannabis in the State of Illinois has been long and arduous. It is important we all do our part to ensure this medicine is recommended and consumed responsibly. It is only intended for patients who have received an approved Medical Marijuana card through the Illinois Health and Human Services Department.
Nature’s Care Company will do our part to honor the intent of the law and we expect our patients will do the same.
Any cannabis purchased through a licensed dispensary in the State is to be consumed only by the patient holding the card. Providing cannabis to friends or family members is against the law. It should always be safeguarded from minors similar to other pharmaceutical medications or alcohol.
It is illegal to consume medical cannabis in a public place and to take it out of state. If your place of employment drug tests as a condition of employment, holding a medical marijuana card will not exempt you from any company policy.
Always consume responsibly in a safe location, preferably within your home. Review with your Patient Care Specialist dosage recommendations and the estimated time of onset for the various forms available.
Take no more than 1-2 draws for your first experience. Plan for 5-10 minutes until the onset of any effect. Total duration of effect can vary from 30 minutes to 4 hours.
Once you have established your personal baseline, you will be able to intelligently take more or less to attain the desired effect.
Start at the lowest level until you understand your tolerance of ingested cannabis-between 5-10 mg. If you are new to cannabis, start at 5 mg. Onset varies from person to person. It could take as little as 30 min or up to 2 hours until the onset of effect. The most frequent cause of over serving oneself is taking an additional serving of an edible if one feels they are not getting the effect. Once you have “overserved yourself”, you can’t consume less!
Edibles should not be mixed with alcohol or other controlled substances. As always, in the event of a medical or other emergency, call 911 immediately.
Always store unused cannabis in its original, child-proof packaging and store out of reach of children and pets.
