Arizona MMJ Laws

What’s New In 2020 for AZ Marijuana Laws?

Mandatory Lab Testing for All Cannabis Products

AZ Lab Testing

In Arizona, mandatory lab testing for medical marijuana products has not been a requirement of the AZ Medical Marijuana Program, however with the passage of Senate Bill 1494, all cannabis products must be tested by a certified independent third-party laboratory before they are sold to patients. The bill takes effect November 1, 2020, and the required testing will determine any unsafe levels of heavy metals, microbial contamination, growth-regulators, herbicides, pesticides, fungicides or residual solids. Once the law takes effect, patients will have the right to view a copy of the test results from the dispensary upon request, and dispensaries are required to post a notice informing patients of their right to view the third-party lab test results.  The Arizona Department of Health Services is charged with developing rules and procedures to regulate and certify the laboratory testing facilities prior to the new law taking effect.

Currently Oasis provides our patients with testing results for many of our products, especially flower. We will not place flower on our shelves if we have not seen test results from the grower. This is one of many ways Oasis goes above and beyond to ensure the highest quality and customer service for our patients.

AZ Medical Marijuana Cards are Now Electronic

AZ Electronic Medical Records

Senate Bill 1494 also required the Arizona Department of Health Services to begin issuing digital patient cards as of December 1, 2019. Physical patient cards will be phased out as cards are lost, expired or replaced, however if your physical card is current, the dispensary will still accept them until their expiration date. Any cards issued after December 1, 2019 are now valid for 2 years, creating a great savings for AZ Medical Marijuana patients.

Patients can now access their medical marijuana card with their mobile device, or a copy of the digital card can be downloaded from the AZ Department of Health Services online portal and printed. We accept physical cards and digital cards at the dispensary, and a printout of your card may also be used with a valid ID.

At Oasis, we realize digital cards may be a challenge to some patients without Smartphones or internet access, so we can assist you with printing a card for your use in our dispensaries. We value your patronage and we want to make sure the AZ Medical Marijuana program is as easy as possible for you to navigate.

Recreational Use on the Arizona 2020 Ballot

AZ Recreational Use

Arizona voters may have the opportunity to approve the legalization of recreational marijuana use on the 2020 ballot. The Smart and Safe Act allows for the purchase and possession of one ounce of marijuana (or 5 grams of concentrate) at a time within the state by adults 21 years and older.

The Smart and Safe Act includes several measures to increase support for the legalization of recreational marijuana since a similar measure failed by a slim margin in 2016. Some highlights of the proposed act include:

  • The Department of Health Services would have until June 1, 2021 to establish rules for allowing dispensaries to sell recreational marijuana.
  • Adults may cultivate up to six marijuana plants at home.
  • Recreational marijuana would be subject to the normal sales tax rate and an additional 16% excise tax. (AZ Medical Marijuana card holders will not have to pay the excise tax)
  • Employers are not required to accommodate or permit the use of marijuana on the job. The act also does not restrict the rights of an employer to maintain a drug-free workplace.
  • The act does not allow marijuana use in open spaces or public places.
  • The act prohibits the sale of any marijuana product that resembles an animal, fruit, human, toy, insect or cartoon.
  • The proposed law does not allow for operating any heavy machinery or vehicle while under the influence of marijuana.

A complete copy of the Smart and Safe Act can be viewed here.

Neurological Conditions

Treatment of Neurological Conditions with Cannabis

When we look at utilizing cannabis for the treatment of neurological conditions, many factors must be considered. What symptoms are being caused by the condition? What is the progressive disease process behind the condition? What forms of cannabis will best address the patient’s symptoms, condition and lifestyle? Ultimately, what is the goal of treatment?

Many neurological conditions share common symptoms such as muscle spasms, pain, loss of appetite, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and the list goes on. Cannabis can address many of these common symptoms effectively, improving the quality of life for many patients.

Cannabis can also help combat the disease progression of many neurological conditions. Cannabinoids are neuroprotective against the processes involved in neural cell damage as a result of overstimulation and neuroinflammation. In neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s disease and multiple sclerosis, neuroinflammation and demyelination of the nerves cause the progression of neurodegeneration. Targeting the body’s Endocannabinoid System with cannabinoids like CBD and THC from cannabis helps to reduce neuroinflammation and may help to slow disease progression in the long run.

The cannabis plant contains many phytocannabinoids that work with our individual Endocannabinoid Systems (ECS), of which the most prolific are CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). Many forms of cannabis products are available to suit any lifestyle and dosing requirements. Patients now have many more options than simply smoking; tinctures, capsules, edibles, topicals, vape pens, suppositories, and flower can be tailored to comprise a complete treatment plan for each individual patient’s needs.

Researchers from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center published a review of the neurological benefits of phytocannabinoids in the Surgical Neurology International journal, citing treatments being done on patients with malignant brain tumors, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, neuropathic pain, and seizure disorders. Back in 2014, the authors found that the American Academy of Neurology completed a review of studies using medical marijuana for clinical benefits for neurological disease or symptoms; there was strong support for use of medical cannabis or cannabinoids at that time to mitigate pain or other symptoms related to spasticity.  As the benefits of medical cannabis become more widely studied and accepted, the potential for decreased stigmatization is high for many more conditions. It is important to consult with your neurologist about introducing cannabis into your current treatment plan. Cannabis may be a fantastic therapeutic option for your neurological condition.

Finding Reliable Treatment Advice

Neurological Conditions

It can be a challenge to know who to trust when it comes to getting medical marijuana advice for neurological conditions. For example, some conventional doctors may not be open to speaking about medical marijuana as a possible treatment option. One place you can find reliable, judgment-free advice is the Brain and Spine Center in Chandler, AZ. They offer a full range of treatments for various neurological conditions and have experienced physicians on staff that can help guide you in the right direction.

Our staff here at Oasis is happy to assist you every step of the way in getting your card and choosing the right product/delivery method for your specific neurological condition:

Headache Prevention with Cannabis

Whether it is recurrent migraine headaches or tension headaches, medical cannabis can be a powerful tool to help with both headache prevention and headache relief. The trick is having multiple tools in your toolbox for varying symptoms.

All headaches are different in character and onset, and the triggers causing the headaches can range from hormones, dehydration, food sensitivities, neck and shoulder pain, to unknown genetic factors. Often recurrent headache sufferers wake with an aggravation or the feeling of a headache coming on. A great preventative option is to take a low-dose edible, preferably made with an Indica strain, nightly at bedtime or an hour before bedtime. Start with a dose of 5mg. An edible will take 30-90 minutes to take effect, but the desired effect will last for 6-8 hours. The reason this can be an effective prevention for headaches is because of the vasodilation and relaxation that occurs during the therapeutic window of the edible. Many headaches, especially tension headaches, are caused by vasoconstriction of the vessels in the brain. By providing the body, especially the vessels in the brain, with 6-8 hours of relaxed dilation a reduction in the number of headaches may occur over time. Patients I have seen benefit the most from this strategy are those that wake from sleep with headaches or have an onset of headache pain that happens earlier in the day.

Not all headaches are caused by vasoconstriction, and in some cases vasodilation may worsen an active migraine. It is important to remember cannabis is a botanical medicine that reacts differently from individual to individual. For migraine sufferers, the conventional medicine approach to migraine prevention are medications like Sumatriptan that require a daily dose even when a migraine may occur just a few times a month. I hear from many patients how frustrating it is to take a toxic medication everyday when they only have headaches sporadically. If you are looking for a natural option that may reduce the frequency of your headaches, this prevention protocol is worth a try. The only side effect you may experience with a low dose (5mg) edible at night is improved sleep!

Endocannabinoid System

What Does Your Endocannabinoid System Do?

You know how your Mom checks in on you, just to make sure you’re ok? Or you check in on your kids, your friends, or even your pets to make sure they have what they need, they are not in any danger, they are well fed, and in a good mood. Well that is what your endocannabinoid system is doing for you all the time!

Thanks to all the recent cannabis research, scientists have discovered the existence of this complex communication system of receptors throughout the body that have the responsibility of maintaining your well being and balance, or homeostasis. The Endocannabinoid system regulates inflammation, stress, metabolism, immunity, mood, pain response and appetite.

The system is comprised of two main types of receptors: CB1 which are primarily found in the brain and central nervous system, and CB2 which are found in peripheral organs and key immune cells. The CB1 and CB2 receptors are more numerous than any other system of receptors in the body, which explains why they are helping to regulate so many important functions like metabolism, mood, immunity, and even inflammation which is the root of most major disease.

Your body makes its own endocannabinoids like anandimide which binds to these receptors, however phytocannabinoids like THC also bind to these receptors and produce a much stronger effect. CBD (cannabidiol) another phytocannabinoid found in both hemp and cannabis is often thought to bind to CB1 and CB2 receptors as well, but that is not the case. CBD never actually binds to the receptors, instead it helps boost the effectiveness of your endocannabinoids like anandimide, and it helps enhance the effectiveness of other phytocannabinoids like THC which you may have heard referred to as the entourage effect. Much like taking a multivitamin to fortify many biochemical activities in the body, CBD is what helps fortify the endocannabinoid system making all cannabinoids work longer and more effectively.

As research progresses, there is strong medical evidence indicating the endocannabinoid system will be a therapeutic target for many diseases and chronic conditions in the body including cancer, HIV/AIDS, Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, glaucoma, PTSD, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, arthritis and many others. CBD and THC along with the other cannabinoids found in cannabis provide a direct route to improving and enhancing the functioning of your endocannabinoid system thus improving your overall well being and balance, just like Mom would have wanted!

What is Delta-8-THC and is it for Me?

Cannabis provides many useful cannabinoids, with THC being the most abundant.  Most THC found in cannabis is a delta-9-THC molecule which has heavy psychotropic effects along with other benefits such as pain relief, nausea relief, appetite stimulation, anxiety reduction, and improved sleep.   Delta-8-THC allows patients to enjoy all the benefits of THC with less psychoactivity.
