Here at Blue Lotus, we are often called upon to help clients pick the best product for their specific concerns. Cannabis and its beneficial compounds - cannabinoids, once largely relegated to the fringes of society, has surged into mainstream conversations due to evolving perspectives on its potential health benefits. There are so many hemp-derived products available, the choices can often be confusing for consumers. We are now offering scheduled consultations for our customers who can’t make it into our store. These consultations, while not offering medical advice, may assist you or someone you love to make informed decisions regarding hemp derived CBD or THC usage for managing specific conditions.
We have found that many people who have enjoy the benefits of cannabinoids want to share the joy with their loved ones. However, parents often won’t take advice from their kids (and vice versa), your friend thinks it’s great that you like CBD, but think it’s “not for them,” or you simply are not sure which products would benefit them the most. In these cases, it is often helpful for them to speak directly with us. Random websites, inaccurate or outrageous claims, or just plain bad products often lead people to misunderstand the available options.
At the core of our consultations is our commitment to offer knowledge, clarity, and personalized guidance. We are versed with a deep understanding of various cannabis strains, cannabinoid profiles, terpene compositions, and consumption methods. Our goal is to empower our clients to explore cannabinoids as a potential tool for wellness. Rather than delivering medical advice, we can provide a comprehensive overview of available options, aiding you in choosing products that align with your preferences and needs. We are also committed to informing you or your loved ones when we don’t think we have options that may help or if your concerns are beyond our expertise. We have a wealth of third-party sources for good information beyond the call as well.
A Few of the Things We Cover in a cannabinoid consultation:
Choosing the Right Method: One of the primary considerations during a consultation is the selection of the appropriate consumption method. Cannabis (hemp) is available in various forms, including flowers, concentrates, edibles, tinctures, topicals, and more. Each method has unique advantages and potential drawbacks, which we discuss with each client. For instance, inhalation methods such as smoking or vaporizing offer rapid onset but may not be suitable for individuals with respiratory issues. Edibles and tinctures provide longer-lasting effects but may take longer to kick in and may not be ideal for acute concerns.
Picking the Ideal Product: With the incredible diversity of cannabinoids and products on the market, choosing the right one can be overwhelming. We aim to guide clients through the nuances of product selection, emphasizing factors such as THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol) content, as well as other cannabinoids and terpenes. Indica strains are often associated with relaxation, while sativa strains are believed to provide more energy. Hybrid strains offer a balance between the two. CBD-dominant strains are favored by those seeking relief without the psychoactive effects of THC. Ratios of CBD to THC can make a difference in effectiveness and side-effects. We can shed light on these distinctions to help clients make an informed decision that resonates with their desired outcomes.
Determining the Optimal Dose: Finding the right dosage is a crucial aspect of cannabinoid consumption. We facilitate discussions on the "start low and go slow" approach, encouraging clients to begin with a small dose and gradually increase it until they achieve the desired effects. Dosage depends on factors such as body weight, metabolism, tolerance, and the client's familiarity with cannabis. We educate clients about the biphasic nature of cannabis effects, where lower doses might produce desired results, while higher doses could lead to unexpected outcomes or discomfort.
Addressing Specific Conditions: Many clients seek cannabis consultations to address specific health conditions, such as chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia, and more. We emphasize that while we cannot provide medical advice, research suggests that certain cannabinoids and terpenes may have potential therapeutic effects for these conditions. We will discuss available evidence and anecdotal experiences to help our clients make informed decisions.
We hope our cannabinoid consultations can play an invaluable role in assisting you as you navigate the intricate world of cannabis products, consumption methods, and dosages. We offer education, guidance, and empowerment, helping you make choices that resonate with your wellness goals. There is never any “hard sell”, and we commit to always focus on helping you find not only the best products, but the options that can provide the most value over time. Our goal is to give you or your loved ones confidence in your product choices and help you enhance your quality of life through informed cannabinoid usage.
