Edible preparations of medical marijuana, also known as medibles, are beloved of many patients. There are tons of recipes for special brownies, space cake, cannabutter and honey oil, but also more elaborate and gourmand dishes like cannabis pesto, marijuana margaritas or pot pasta. You can make THC-laced candy, cookies, bread, ice cream... just about anything you can think of!
Ingesting medical marijuana has the important benefit of being completely healthy. This in contrast to smoking marijuana with or without tobacco, which many MMJ patients are unwilling to do because of tar, nicotine and other harmful substances inhaled. A possible downside of edible marijuana is that it can be harder to get the dose right. Also, it takes a while for the effect to kick in. But with some experience, you will find your way to make edible marijuana a pleasant and easy way to take your medicine.
Besides baked goods and other medible products, there are other ways of ingesting medical marijuana. You can make a tea, a tincture, an alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage and even marijuana pills. Honey or hash oil is another specific preparation. You can read more about honey oil elsewhere on this site. Caution is advisable when using alcohol-based preparations.

Cookies or cake are probably the best entry-level form of medical MMJ: they are easy to make, taste good and you can vary the dosage by starting with a small bite and working your way up.
