Why Not Offer Whole Flower?

We get this question a lot 
and we have a good reason.

First, if you’re not sure, what is whole flower? 

“Whole Flower” is the term used for plant products prescribed by medicinal marijuana clinics. It is the raw plant material from the cannabis plant that can be smoked or vaped. This is common in the industry, but it does not provide the dosing required for medical regimes.
On the other hand, cannabinoids are the active molecules found in the cannabis plant that provide medical outcomes. The main ones you may have heard of CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (∆9- tetrahydrocannabinol) are usually what is prescribed by healthcare professionals. To learn more about the different terminology used, check out our guide- Cannabinoids, Cannabis and Marijuana.


What do we do?

The medications provided by eCS Clinic where appropriate are cannabinoid medications. We prescribe compounds derived from cannabis which can be accuratley and reliabily dosed and titrated to ensure a consistent outcome for patients. Medicinal cannabinoids are available in a range of forms, including oil, lozenges, capsules, cream, supositories, and pessaries.
