The P.R. Collective in San Pedro has a menu of medical marijuana products and derivatives that includes sativa, indica, and hybrid marijuana strains, clones, drinks, concentrates, and edibles. But of all the menu items, the edibles may be one of the more common and, perhaps, important products our member-patients use to medicate.
Edibles are an important part of the overall menu for any medical marijuana dispensary. Counter to some popular beliefs, there are a great percentage of patients who prefer to use edible marijuana products (versus inhaled smoke) to soothe the ravages of their ailments. Diseases and maladies such as Alzheimer’s, HIV/AIDS, Arthritis, Cancer, Crohn’s Disease, Glaucoma, Multiple Sclerosis, and other select disabilities respond equally as well to the cannabinoids and terpenophenolic compounds in edibles as in inhaled smoke. Therefore, like with traditional medical marijuana products which are smoked, marijuana edibles provide immediate and, in some cases, lasting relief from the effects of these terrible medical conditions.
Marijuana edibles have been long-recognized as an efficient medication against common disease side effects such as nausea, weakness, pain, spasticity, appetite loss, and wasting. Therefore, the P.R. Collective in San Pedro offers an extensive menu of marijuana-based edibles to meet every partiality and appetite. But of the many marijuana edibles items on the menu, nothing beats those that favor the sweet tooth.
Sweets are considered a sometimes treat in our everyday lives. Sweets are a comfort food, so it’s no surprise that edible sweets are a popular part of the medical marijuana edibles selection on the menu. When you’re feeling down, comfort hits the spot. Potbelly has a great selection of chocolate cookies, caramel crunch cookies, and cakes. Their pumpkin loaf is a favorite request item around the autumn season. The Venice Cookie Co. has chocolate bars, honey sticks, and candies – all infused with derivatives of medical marijuana. Kiva also has a great chocolate bar, by the way. The kind folks at Sensi Roots & Taste Bud Heaven offer a big (500mg) peanut butter cup that comes in either milk chocolate or white chocolate. They also have a great lollipop too. And if you’re perusing the edibles menu at our San Pedro location, ask us about the lemon squares! We get those from time to time. Of course, if you’re partial to sweets but tend to lay off the candy and chocolate varieties, the edibles menu has a great selection of Chronic Tonic drinks that come in delicious flavors such as Orange Orbit, Galaxy Grape, Paradise Punch, Lazy Lemon, and Blueberry. Each 16-ounce bottle contains 3.35g dry cannabis and 34mg THC.
One important note: edible medical marijuana products and drinks offer a much more potent THC effect than you would experience through a traditional smoke, so please begin with no more than a half portion of any edible product.
