Marijuana: An alternative medicine
http://www.gazette.com/articles/marijuana-52852-medical...

<snip>
Drive to an aging, nondescript strip mall on Fillmore Street, knock on the locked door of Cannabis Therapeutics, and when the door swings open the first thing to greet you will be the sweet, pungent smell of marijuana.

Here in the heart of Colorado Springs is the largest medical marijuana dispensary in Colorado. Doorman Ken McAdams checks your paperwork from the state, and then you're ushered into the inner sanctum.

Charismatic owner Michael Lee delights in showing newcomers around his magic emporium, with his friendly pup Sawyer trailing at his feet. There are 45 strains of pot on this day - with names like chemo, white widow, purple kush, vortex, chocolate chunk, lemonade, and orange crush - arranged in glass jars.

But that's just the beginning. There are tinctures, lotions and balms. There are cran-raspberry drinks, chewing gum, cough drops and caramels. There's bubble bath, banana bread and cherry cheesecake. New creations are constantly being birthed in the "Herbologist's" chemistry lab.

"There are so many ways to get your medicine now that you don't need to smoke it," Lee said.

1. Eating it works the best - lasts longest and has nutrients
Grind the dried stuff right into a brownie or cookie - lots of Omega 3's and 6's.

Excellent painkiller, bronchial dilator, depression med, appetite enhancer, sickness reducer... the list goes on
