6 Types of Cannabis in Arizona

all different types of cannabis

While Arizonans have yet to approve recreational cannabis, medical cannabis is available in a variety of forms. Here are the 6 types of cannabis Arizona medical users can buy. 

1. Flower/Smokable Type of Cannabis in Arizona

Benefits: Quick onset, social

Arizonans with a medical card can possess as much as 2.5 ounces of cannabis every two weeks, and grow as many as 12 plants for personal use. Out-of-staters with medical cards can legally possess the same amount of marijuana, but cannot buy it at Arizona dispensaries. 

Medical users can legally smoke cannabis, but you may want to use a leaf vaporizer to enjoy the therapeutic effects without the harsh smoke. Alternatively, you can use a water bong to make the smoke cooler and less harsh.

Citrus Kush is a great nighttime indica-dominant strain, with the fruity flavor its name suggests. This happy flower is great for stress, anxiety and depression, as well as pain and insomnia.



2. Oils and Concentrates

Benefits: Fast-acting, convenient and user-friendly 

Oils and concentrates are types of cannabis that are most convenient and very easy way to use when and where you need it, with minimal odor and no smoke. The effects occur in about 90 seconds, relieving pain, nausea, anxiety and other conditions quickly. 

New users should take note that concentrates can be VERY strong. If you haven’t used them before, give yourself at least two or three minutes between puffs to make sure you don’t get too high.

Darwin Custom Oil is a neat idea we’ve never seen before: customizable extract. Medical users can create their own customized cartridges, selecting the basic type (Indica, Sativa or Hybrid), terpenes, and flavors for a truly personalized cannabis product.



3. Edibles

Benefits: Prolonged effect, measured dose, discrete 

Edibles are a type of cannabis ideal for medical cannabis consumers who require ongoing relief and regular dosing. Edibles come in convenient standardized doses, and can stay effective for many hours. 

The downside is that dosing can be tricky for new users. Edibles take up to two hours to reach their full effect, which can make it difficult for new users to have enough without having too much. 

If you do have too much, remember that you’re not in danger — you can’t overdose on cannabis. Check out our article on eating too many edibles for tips on getting through your experience comfortably and safely. 


Arizona Edibles



Kiva Confections Terra Bite Blueberry Milk 

Arizona cannabis shops mostly sell strong edibles aimed at medical users who require a high dose — too high for a beginner, in our opinion. These small chocolate-covered candies are the exception. At 5 mg of THC, a single candy makes a reasonable beginner dose, with 24 doses in a pack.

Each tasty candy in this pack is individually wrapped and provides a dose of 10 mg THC, for a total of 100 mg for the pack.




4. Capsules

Benefits: Prolonged effect, measured dose, discrete 

Cannabis capsules have the same benefits and drawbacks as edibles, except the type of cannabis extract is packed into pills rather than baked goods or beverages. If you’re interested in edibles, but don’t want the temptation of sweets, capsules are a great way to go.

5. Tinctures

Benefits: Portable, precise dosing, discrete

Tinctures are the ultimate type of cannabis for precise dosing, enabling you to measure out the exact amount of THC you need. They also absorb quickly into the bloodstream when taken under the tongue, eliminating the main drawback of edibles. If you’re interested in tracking and optimizing your dosing schedule, try a tincture.

6. Rubs/Topicals

Benefits: Localized pain and inflammation relief, no psychoactive effects

Dealing with chronic back pain, migraines or other localized pain? Cannabis topicals can help! These products relieve localized pain and inflammation without the psychoactive effects of THC. However, for systemic inflammatory diseases or pain all over your body, taking cannabis internally may be more effective.
