In New York State, patients are not allowed to smoke medical cannabis, but they are allowed to vaporize it. Your practitioner will make recommendation for both the administration method of a patient's medical cannabis product as well as the ratio of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) to cannabidiol (CBD) in the product.
