What does "Medical" mean?

Definition: In the cannabis industry, medical usually refers to marijuana grown in a regulated medical market for officially-registered medical marijuana patients. You usually buy medical in a dispensary. Some states, however, have systems that link patients with personal caregivers who provide medical pot, or that allow patients to simply grow their own medicine at home.

Example usage for Medical
