What are vaporizing temps and what do they mean?

It is a well known fact that vaporizing is the healthiest way to smoke. Heating cannabis to the correct temperature will ensure that the cannabinoids and terpenes are vaporized efficiently, leading to optimal recreational and medicinal effects. The ideal vaporize temperature for cannabis is between 347°F - 392°F. Cannabis will begin combustion after 400°F, depending on the moisture content.


I can’t smoke; what are my options?

Consuming cannabis does not necessarily mean you must smoke it!  It also does not mean you must be high!  You can actually be medicating with cannabis in various forms: both edible and topical.  If you’d like, you can also buy flower and brew a tea with the buds.  You can decarboxylate (or activate your flower) at a very low temp (low and slow) and create your own cannabis infused butter at home and then your own edibles!  There are plenty of edible options at Sacred Sun Farms.  We offer a variety of options that include ratios of THC & CBD as well.  Tinctures are a wonderful option for edible and sublingual consumption and wonderful to microdose!  If you are looking for an option for localized pain relief; please consider an infused topical product that is directly applied to the area that is bothersome.  FUN FACT: Our skin actually contains FIVE TIMES the amount of cannabinoid receptors than we have inside of our bodies!

What is dry herb vaping?

Vaporizing dry herbs is easier on your lungs because you are not inhaling the chlorophyll. The temps on a dry herb vaporizer burn the oils and terpenes only. So you are getting the flavor and the feeling herb only it is a cleaner hit with little smoke.

Buying high-quality dry vaporizers may seem like a waste of money, but you get what you pay for with these.  An expensive one at 200+ dollars will often pay itself off because of high quality and warranties.

Good manufactures of dry vaporizers, do some research for yourself also.

How long does it take an edible to work?

Edibles are absorbed through your liver which depending on how much you ate and your body type can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours to even begin feeling different.

How often should I apply a topical?

Please consult your doctor about any regular use schedules to treat symptoms. Usage and amounts change depending on where a problem is and what topical is used. 
Generally, there is no such thing as too much, just not enough.

Will a topical make me high?

Generally no, if the topical has THCa in it, it might make you feel a little drowsy at most. When you are absorbing cannabinoids through your skin called transdermal absorption, the amount of THC that actually gets absorbed through is only at most 10% of the total amount applied.

What is CBG?

CBG stands for Cannabigerol which is one of 120 different cannabinoids found in the species cannabis. CBG acts in conjunction with many other cannabinoids found in “full-spectrum” extracts to treat a host of different symptoms. There is some science that shows CBG has very positive effects on treating metastasized cancers.

Why should I care about CBD?

CBD stands for Cannabidiol which is one of 120 different cannabinoids found in the species cannabis. CBD is NOT psychoactive but has strong effects on stopping epilepsy and controlling stress and anxiety.

What is the difference between THC and THCa?

THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol is one of the primary cannabinoids in cannabis. There are two different types of THC; Δ9THC, which is a non-psychoactive form of the compound. THCa is the psychoactive form of the compound THC, the “a” stands for acid. THCa is only present after the flower has been ‘decarboxylated’ which means that through heat the Δ9THC has changed into THCa.

What is the entourage effect?

The entourage effect is quite simply the effect of being “high” or “stoned” it is a physiological and metabolic response to a large amount of cannabinoids binding with the endocannabinoid receptors in our brain and gut.

What are cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are a fatty lipid that is secreted by the cannabis plant in its flowers, in the form of crystalline structures known as trichomes. There are 120 different cannabinoids present in cannabis and different strains have different ratios of cannabinoids. THC is only one class of cannabinoids found in cannabis. All the cannabinoids affect you through your endocannabinoid receptors in your brain and body, this complex interaction is called the entourage effect.

What are terpenes?

Terpenes are a class of chemicals called Volatile Organic Compounds, or VOCs for short. Think of terpenes as a naturally occurring solvent, much like solvents that you may even consume like wine and spirits, but these solvents are being made in the flower of a plant. In fact, all flowering plants produce terpenes, especially in the flowers. Terpenes are what give all flowers their smell.

What does clean green mean and why should I care?

Clean Green Certified cannabis is a certification that is given to cannabis cultivators like Sacred Sun Farms to show that they are growing and processing their cannabis using organic methods and vegan inputs. Learn more about what it means to be Clean Green Certified.

Can I buy a gun and have my medical card?

An open letter from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) put out in 2011 restated their position that the 1968 law still stands regardless of changing societal attitudes about marijuana. The letter says that anyone who uses marijuana, regardless of state law, qualifies as an "unlawful user of" the controlled substance, and is therefore prohibited from owning a gun.

Background checks are not always performed when purchasing firearms.

What are the debilitating conditions in order to apply for a Medical Marijuana card?

If you are in need of medical marijuana as a medicine to treat ongoing symptoms please consult one of the many licensed clinics and doctors around Montana that specialize in recommending Medical Marijuana.  

Below are the conditions in Montana that may qualify a patient for a medical cannabis card. Please talk to your medical practitioner about whether medical cannabis is an appropriate treatment for you.

The debilitating conditions for which you can recommend marijuana include:

  • cancer, glaucoma, positive status for human immunodeficiency virus, or acquired immune deficiency syndrome when the condition or disease results in symptoms that seriously and adversely affect the patient's health status;
  • cachexia or wasting syndrome;

  • admittance into hospice care in accordance with rules adopted by the department;
  • Post-traumatic Stress Disorder; or
  • any other medical condition or treatment for a medical condition approved by the legislature.

Who has access to my medical marijuana information? What agencies know if I am a medical marijuana cardholder?

As a medical marijuana registered cardholder in the state of Montana, all of your data is protected by HIPAA. Your provider, your physician, and the DPHHS team that processes your application within the Complia portal can see your information under normal circumstances. Some Law Enforcement Organizations may be able to see if you are a VALID registered cardholder of the DPHHS MT Medical Marijuana Program.

What restrictions are associated with a temporary medical marijuana card?

Temporary cards are only provided by the DPHHS when a New Patient Application is submitted.

All patients with a temporary card must have a valid photo ID in addition to their temp card while purchasing or in possession of medicine. Do note, your temp card does expire FIVE days after your application is processed by the DPHHS and SIXTY days after it is issued.

If you lose your temp card it can be reprinted from your account on the Complia portal. Please ask one of our budtenders for assistance if you require it.

Are there limits on the amount of medical marijuana I as a patient can purchase or have?

 Per DPHHS MMMP regulations, registered cardholders may purchase up to

5 ounces of usable marijuana products per month.

EQUIVALENCE BREAKDOWN

one (1) ounce of marijuana flower OR

eight (8) grams of marijuana concentrate OR

800 mg of THC in marijuana infused products or edibles OR

sixteen (16) .5 ml vape cartridges OR

eight (8) 1 ml vape cartridges

one (1) ounce of marijuana flower = 800mg of THC in marijuana infused products or = eight (8) grams of concentrate = eight (8) ml of vape cartridges

Example:

If you purchase ½ ounce of flower, you would also be able to purchase four (4) grams of marijuana concentrate OR 400 mg of infused products or edibles OR four (4) 1 ml vape cartridges OR eight (8) .5 ml vape cartridges

To calculate FLOWER EQUIVALENCE OF INFUSED PRODUCTS: Take the TOTAL mg THC divided by 28.6; this number is the flower equivalence in grams. Example: 100mg THC (divided by) 28.6 = 3.5 grams As per Senate Bill 265, a patient may purchase up to 5 oz of marijuana product every month.

The limits reset on the 1st day of each month.

If you are a patient that medicates with infused products, these can take up a lot of your monthly allotment. Consider an appointment with the physician who provided you with your Medical Marijuana Physician Recommendation for your card and submit the CARDHOLDER PETITION FOR EXCEPTION TO MONTHLY PURCHASE LIMITS form found HERE. This form must be filled out and signed by YOU and by the PHYSICIAN who wrote for your recommendation.


How long does it take to get my medical marijuana card?

Medical Marijuana patient cards can take anywhere from a few weeks to longer than a month to become approved. The time it takes the Department of Health and Human Services to respond is completely dependent on the number of card applicants they have.

Who has access to my medical marijuana information? What agencies know if I am a medical marijuana cardholder?

As a medical marijuana registered cardholder in the state of Montana, all of your data is protected by HIPAA. Your provider, your physician, and the DPHHS team that processes your application within the Complia portal can see your information under normal circumstances. Some Law Enforcement Organizations may be able to see if you are a VALID registered cardholder of the DPHHS MT Medical Marijuana Program.

What restrictions are associated with a temporary medical marijuana card?

Temporary cards are only provided by the DPHHS when a New Patient Application is submitted.

All patients with a temporary card must have a valid photo ID in addition to their temp card while purchasing or in possession of medicine. Do note, your temp card does expire FIVE days after your application is processed by the DPHHS and SIXTY days after it is issued.

If you lose your temp card it can be reprinted from your account on the Complia portal. Please ask one of our budtenders for assistance if you require it.

Are there limits on the amount of medical marijuana I as a patient can purchase or have?

 Per DPHHS MMMP regulations, registered cardholders may purchase up to

5 ounces of usable marijuana products per month.

EQUIVALENCE BREAKDOWN

one (1) ounce of marijuana flower OR

eight (8) grams of marijuana concentrate OR

800 mg of THC in marijuana infused products or edibles OR

sixteen (16) .5 ml vape cartridges OR

eight (8) 1 ml vape cartridges

one (1) ounce of marijuana flower = 800mg of THC in marijuana infused products or = eight (8) grams of concentrate = eight (8) ml of vape cartridges

Example:

If you purchase ½ ounce of flower, you would also be able to purchase four (4) grams of marijuana concentrate OR 400 mg of infused products or edibles OR four (4) 1 ml vape cartridges OR eight (8) .5 ml vape cartridges

To calculate FLOWER EQUIVALENCE OF INFUSED PRODUCTS: Take the TOTAL mg THC divided by 28.6; this number is the flower equivalence in grams. Example: 100mg THC (divided by) 28.6 = 3.5 grams As per Senate Bill 265, a patient may purchase up to 5 oz of marijuana product every month.

The limits reset on the 1st day of each month.

If you are a patient that medicates with infused products, these can take up a lot of your monthly allotment. Consider an appointment with the physician who provided you with your Medical Marijuana Physician Recommendation for your card and submit the CARDHOLDER PETITION FOR EXCEPTION TO MONTHLY PURCHASE LIMITS form found HERE. This form must be filled out and signed by YOU and by the PHYSICIAN who wrote for your recommendation.

What are vaporizing temps and what do they mean?

It is a well known fact that vaporizing is the healthiest way to smoke. Heating cannabis to the correct temperature will ensure that the cannabinoids and terpenes are vaporized efficiently, leading to optimal recreational and medicinal effects. The ideal vaporize temperature for cannabis is between 347°F - 392°F. Cannabis will begin combustion after 400°F, depending on the moisture content.


I can’t smoke; what are my options?

Consuming cannabis does not necessarily mean you must smoke it!  It also does not mean you must be high!  You can actually be medicating with cannabis in various forms: both edible and topical.  If you’d like, you can also buy flower and brew a tea with the buds.  You can decarboxylate (or activate your flower) at a very low temp (low and slow) and create your own cannabis infused butter at home and then your own edibles!  There are plenty of edible options at Sacred Sun Farms.  We offer a variety of options that include ratios of THC & CBD as well.  Tinctures are a wonderful option for edible and sublingual consumption and wonderful to microdose!  If you are looking for an option for localized pain relief; please consider an infused topical product that is directly applied to the area that is bothersome.  FUN FACT: Our skin actually contains FIVE TIMES the amount of cannabinoid receptors than we have inside of our bodies!

What is dry herb vaping?

Vaporizing dry herbs is easier on your lungs because you are not inhaling the chlorophyll. The temps on a dry herb vaporizer burn the oils and terpenes only. So you are getting the flavor and the feeling herb only it is a cleaner hit with little smoke.

Buying high-quality dry vaporizers may seem like a waste of money, but you get what you pay for with these.  An expensive one at 200+ dollars will often pay itself off because of high quality and warranties.

Good manufactures of dry vaporizers, do some research for yourself also.

-Storz and Bickel

-PAX

How long does it take an edible to work?

Edibles are absorbed through your liver which depending on how much you ate and your body type can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours to even begin feeling different.

How often should I apply a topical?

Please consult your doctor about any regular use schedules to treat symptoms. Usage and amounts change depending on where a problem is and what topical is used. 
Generally, there is no such thing as too much, just not enough.

Will a topical make me high?

Generally no, if the topical has THCa in it, it might make you feel a little drowsy at most. When you are absorbing cannabinoids through your skin called transdermal absorption, the amount of THC that actually gets absorbed through is only at most 10% of the total amount applied.

What is CBG?

CBG stands for Cannabigerol which is one of 120 different cannabinoids found in the species cannabis. CBG acts in conjunction with many other cannabinoids found in “full-spectrum” extracts to treat a host of different symptoms. There is some science that shows CBG has very positive effects on treating metastasized cancers.

Why should I care about CBD?

CBD stands for Cannabidiol which is one of 120 different cannabinoids found in the species cannabis. CBD is NOT psychoactive but has strong effects on stopping epilepsy and controlling stress and anxiety.

What is the difference between THC and THCa?

THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol is one of the primary cannabinoids in cannabis. There are two different types of THC; Δ9THC, which is a non-psychoactive form of the compound. THCa is the psychoactive form of the compound THC, the “a” stands for acid. THCa is only present after the flower has been ‘decarboxylated’ which means that through heat the Δ9THC has changed into THCa.

What is the entourage effect?

The entourage effect is quite simply the effect of being “high” or “stoned” it is a physiological and metabolic response to a large amount of cannabinoids binding with the endocannabinoid receptors in our brain and gut.

What are cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are a fatty lipid that is secreted by the cannabis plant in its flowers, in the form of crystalline structures known as trichomes. There are 120 different cannabinoids present in cannabis and different strains have different ratios of cannabinoids. THC is only one class of cannabinoids found in cannabis. All the cannabinoids affect you through your endocannabinoid receptors in your brain and body, this complex interaction is called the entourage effect.

What are terpenes?

Terpenes are a class of chemicals called Volatile Organic Compounds, or VOCs for short. Think of terpenes as a naturally occurring solvent, much like solvents that you may even consume like wine and spirits, but these solvents are being made in the flower of a plant. In fact, all flowering plants produce terpenes, especially in the flowers. Terpenes are what give all flowers their smell.

What does clean green mean and why should I care?

Clean Green Certified cannabis is a certification that is given to cannabis cultivators like Sacred Sun Farms to show that they are growing and processing their cannabis using organic methods and vegan inputs. Learn more about what it means to be Clean Green Certified.

Can I buy a gun and have my medical card?

An open letter from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) put out in 2011 restated their position that the 1968 law still stands regardless of changing societal attitudes about marijuana. The letter says that anyone who uses marijuana, regardless of state law, qualifies as an "unlawful user of" the controlled substance, and is therefore prohibited from owning a gun.

Are there limits on the amount of medical marijuana I as a patient can purchase or have?

 Per DPHHS MMMP regulations, registered cardholders may purchase up to

5 ounces of usable marijuana products per month.

EQUIVALENCE BREAKDOWN

one (1) ounce of marijuana flower OR

eight (8) grams of marijuana concentrate OR

800 mg of THC in marijuana infused products or edibles OR

sixteen (16) .5 ml vape cartridges OR

eight (8) 1 ml vape cartridges

one (1) ounce of marijuana flower = 800mg of THC in marijuana infused products or = eight (8) grams of concentrate = eight (8) ml of vape cartridges

Example:

If you purchase ½ ounce of flower, you would also be able to purchase four (4) grams of marijuana concentrate OR 400 mg of infused products or edibles OR four (4) 1 ml vape cartridges OR eight (8) .5 ml vape cartridges

To calculate FLOWER EQUIVALENCE OF INFUSED PRODUCTS: Take the TOTAL mg THC divided by 28.6; this number is the flower equivalence in grams. Example: 100mg THC (divided by) 28.6 = 3.5 grams As per Senate Bill 265, a patient may purchase up to 5 oz of marijuana product every month.

The limits reset on the 1st day of each month.

If you are a patient that medicates with infused products, these can take up a lot of your monthly allotment.

What are vaporizing temps and what do they mean?

It is a well known fact that vaporizing is the healthiest way to smoke. Heating cannabis to the correct temperature will ensure that the cannabinoids and terpenes are vaporized efficiently, leading to optimal recreational and medicinal effects. The ideal vaporize temperature for cannabis is between 347°F - 392°F. Cannabis will begin combustion after 400°F, depending on the moisture content.


I can’t smoke; what are my options?

Consuming cannabis does not necessarily mean you must smoke it!  It also does not mean you must be high!  You can actually be medicating with cannabis in various forms: both edible and topical.  If you’d like, you can also buy flower and brew a tea with the buds.  You can decarboxylate (or activate your flower) at a very low temp (low and slow) and create your own cannabis infused butter at home and then your own edibles!  There are plenty of edible options at Sacred Sun Farms.  We offer a variety of options that include ratios of THC & CBD as well.  Tinctures are a wonderful option for edible and sublingual consumption and wonderful to microdose!  If you are looking for an option for localized pain relief; please consider an infused topical product that is directly applied to the area that is bothersome.  FUN FACT: Our skin actually contains FIVE TIMES the amount of cannabinoid receptors than we have inside of our bodies!

What is dry herb vaping?

Vaporizing dry herbs is easier on your lungs because you are not inhaling the chlorophyll. The temps on a dry herb vaporizer burn the oils and terpenes only. So you are getting the flavor and the feeling herb only it is a cleaner hit with little smoke.

Buying high-quality dry vaporizers may seem like a waste of money, but you get what you pay for with these.  An expensive one at 200+ dollars will often pay itself off because of high quality and warranties.

Good manufactures of dry vaporizers, do some research for yourself also.

-Storz and Bickel

-PAX

How long does it take an edible to work?

Edibles are absorbed through your liver which depending on how much you ate and your body type can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours to even begin feeling different.

How often should I apply a topical?

Please consult your doctor about any regular use schedules to treat symptoms. Usage and amounts change depending on where a problem is and what topical is used. 
Generally, there is no such thing as too much, just not enough.

Will a topical make me high?

Generally no, if the topical has THCa in it, it might make you feel a little drowsy at most. When you are absorbing cannabinoids through your skin called transdermal absorption, the amount of THC that actually gets absorbed through is only at most 10% of the total amount applied.

What is CBG?

CBG stands for Cannabigerol which is one of 120 different cannabinoids found in the species cannabis. CBG acts in conjunction with many other cannabinoids found in “full-spectrum” extracts to treat a host of different symptoms. There is some science that shows CBG has very positive effects on treating metastasized cancers.

Why should I care about CBD?

CBD stands for Cannabidiol which is one of 120 different cannabinoids found in the species cannabis. CBD is NOT psychoactive but has strong effects on stopping epilepsy and controlling stress and anxiety.

What is the difference between THC and THCa?

THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol is one of the primary cannabinoids in cannabis. There are two different types of THC; Δ9THC, which is a non-psychoactive form of the compound. THCa is the psychoactive form of the compound THC, the “a” stands for acid. THCa is only present after the flower has been ‘decarboxylated’ which means that through heat the Δ9THC has changed into THCa.

What is the entourage effect?

The entourage effect is quite simply the effect of being “high” or “stoned” it is a physiological and metabolic response to a large amount of cannabinoids binding with the endocannabinoid receptors in our brain and gut.

What are cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are a fatty lipid that is secreted by the cannabis plant in its flowers, in the form of crystalline structures known as trichomes. There are 120 different cannabinoids present in cannabis and different strains have different ratios of cannabinoids. THC is only one class of cannabinoids found in cannabis. All the cannabinoids affect you through your endocannabinoid receptors in your brain and body, this complex interaction is called the entourage effect.

What are terpenes?

Terpenes are a class of chemicals called Volatile Organic Compounds, or VOCs for short. Think of terpenes as a naturally occurring solvent, much like solvents that you may even consume like wine and spirits, but these solvents are being made in the flower of a plant. In fact, all flowering plants produce terpenes, especially in the flowers. Terpenes are what give all flowers their smell.

What does clean green mean and why should I care?

Clean Green Certified cannabis is a certification that is given to cannabis cultivators like Sacred Sun Farms to show that they are growing and processing their cannabis using organic methods and vegan inputs. Learn more about what it means to be Clean Green Certified.

Can I buy a gun and have my medical card?

An open letter from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) put out in 2011 restated their position that the 1968 law still stands regardless of changing societal attitudes about marijuana. The letter says that anyone who uses marijuana, regardless of state law, qualifies as an "unlawful user of" the controlled substance, and is therefore prohibited from owning a gun.

Background checks are not always performed when purchasing firearms.

State CCL or CCP licenses may be affected by a state-issued MMJ card.
