HAWAII'S MEDICAL MARIJUANA DISPENSARIES, QUALITY CONTROL, AND LAWS
WHAT ARE MEDICAL MARIJUANA DISPENSARIES?
- Dispensaries are like a pharmacy where you can come to with your medical marijuana card and purchase different products such as actual marijuana, oils, tinctures, and creams infused with the healing molecules of marijuana
ARE THE DISPENSARIES OPEN YET?
- Not yet. Opening soon! They will hopefully be selling product by the end of Summer 2017.
WHAT IF I HAVE TO TAKE A DRUG TEST AT MY JOB?
- We have been asking around to find out more about this. The best guidance we have been given is to be open and transparent with your place of employment if they ask you to take a drug test. That way there are no surprises. Currently in the state of Hawaii it is legal for you to use medical marijuana if you have the card, but federal law still considers it illegal. As we hear more from law makers and lawyers we will update you.
WHY IS MEDICAL MARIJUANA TESTED IN LABS?
- Mostly for quality control and safety. All products sold in the dispensaries are tested for their concentration of cannabinoids, THC, and terpenes so that people who purchase products at the dispensaries can know how much of each are contained in what they are buying, which can help you figure out what helps with your condition. Also the labs test for harmful fungus, pesticides, and heavy metals to ensure that what you are purchasing is safe for consumption. Click "Read More" below find info on lab testing.
