FAQ – SBJ ORGANICS

Should I tip the SBJ driver?

We love our drivers, so we are bias. But yes, if you feel they have provided a professional service and want to tip them, some do. Tips range from a couple dollars to 5%-20% or more.

What is the best way to medicate?

There are many different ways to medicate using medical marijuana.  Some people prefer to smoke while others prefer edibles.  Lots of other great methods exist as well. Tinctures & balms are another great way to relieve pain & inflammation through age-old natural methods that are high in CBD levels.  Alternative methods of medicating have many benefits that may not be found in traditional methods.  Every person is different & most will have different preferences.  It’s always recommended to try a small amount first & see how you feel one hour later before continuing. Contact us anytime and we can assist you in finding the most appropriate medicine to address your medical needs.

What is THC?

THC is the ingredient in medical cannabis that gives the euphoric feeling that is sometimes experienced while using various methods of medicating.  It is typically released by way of heat during smoking or cooking the cannabis to a specified temperature.  Other methods of ingesting medical marijuana without heating, allow patients to medicate without the euphoric effects of THC. There are many studies on THC’s ability to reduce the painful pressure of glaucoma. Clinical studies on THC’s analgesic, pain-relieving properties in patients with cancer or severe pain can be found here.

What is CBD?

CBD is a non-psychoactive component of marijuana that possesses a wide range of therapeutic benefits. When present in high quantities, CBD enhances THC’s positive effects. It’s clear both THC & CBD coexist in the plant for a reason, often acting synergistically to create enhanced effects.  There are many studies online that discuss CBD’s ability to reverse alcohol-induced brain damage, CBD as an effective treatment for severe social anxiety, and CBD as a potent anti-psychotic medicine.
