If you are going to use medical marijuana, there are all kinds of ways that you can use it. One way that you can use it is to buy marijuana edibles online or elsewhere. 

Marijuana Edibles

Edibles are things that you can eat that were prepared with marijuana. They could be prepared with the dried plant or with concentrates or other similar products. Edibles can be everything from brownies, to butter, to candy. Concentrates and tinctures can be added into smoothies, tea, or other drinks or food. If you are going to try edibles, you want to make sure that you are doing it the right way. There are things that you can do that will make it easier for you to use edibles and get the desired results. 

Go Slowly

You want to make sure that you are starting slowly, especially if you aren't familiar with how marijuana will react with your system. Instead of grabbing that whole brownie and chowing down on it, try eating just a little bit of it, wrapping it up and saving the rest for later. That way you will be able to judge how you are going to be affected by the edible. You can always go up in the dosage if you aren't getting the results that you are looking for, but you can't go back down, so taking it slowly will help you do it right. 

Keep Track

You will also want to start a log or use an app that will let you keep track of what kind of marijuana it was, such as a sativa, an indica, or a hybrid, as well as what strain it is and how it affected you. No two people will be affected the same way by the same kind of marijuana, so you can't depend on how Joe down the way is affected. You will also want to keep track of how much you ingested. Doing that will help you get the same results every time you try. It can also help you predict how some other strain may affect you. It won't be an exact predictor, but it can be helpful. 

Medical marijuana is legal in many places. If you live in one of those places and you are able to use medical marijuana, you may want to consider using edibles both for their ease of use as well as their efficacy. Just make sure that you are doing it right.
