Options Medical Center is proud to carry a wide selection of medical and recreational flower. We strive to consistently offer a range of strains with different characteristics to meet our patients and customers needs.
Here’s a look at the different kinds of flower you can expect to find here at Options Medical Center:
Sativa strains are generally higher in THC and are more popular with active recreational smokers. Sativas are known for being uplifting and energizing, however every strain has different levels of intensity for each user. New smokers should be warned that sativas can sometimes cause side effects such as elevated heart rates and anxiety.
Indica strains, compared to sativas, are generally lower in THC but higher in other cannabinoids. This makes indicas more useful for medicinal smokers with conditions such as insomnia, anxiety, and chronic pain. Indicas are known for their sedating couch-locking effect so they should generally be saved for night time and relaxing.
Hybrid strains will be the most common, as there has been so much experimentation and cross breeding over the years. Hybrids will vary in their proportions and can provide relief to medicinal smokers without the intense drowsiness of a traditional indica, and can provide an equally uplifting high for a recreational smoker without such intense side effects such as racey heart. The goal with hybrids is to combine the best qualities of two strains for an ultimately positive experience.
Choosing a Strain
If you are unsure about which strain is best-suited to your needs, we recommend speaking to one of our expert budtenders. You can also check out our entire menu online and discover the different properties of each kind of flower on our shelves, including medicinal qualities, psychoactive properties, flavor and more.
Our team is happy to answer any questions you may have and give you pointers based on desired effects or on the symptoms that you are experiencing. Even as you compare different types of sativa and indica strains you will find that each individual strain has different levels of potency and secondary cannabinoids that change the way you feel when you use them. It is important for recreational and medicinal smokers alike to remember that marijuana effects everybody differently. While strains have general characteristics, finding the perfect one for your needs may take some trial and error, and we are here to guide you through that process!
Our selection of flower changes frequently, so make sure you are checking back regularly to see what’s new. We also have our own grow where we are working on developing our own custom strains to better serve our customers with consistent, quality products.

Using pharmaceutical industry standards, Stratos produces immediate release tablets with impressive consistency and efficacy. In Sleep, Relax, and Energy, these tablets are perfect for the user with a very specific experience in mind, whether that is to kick start their day or wind down before bed. The ingredients used in the tablets ensure maximum digestion by the user, however Stratos does advise that their product be taken with a fatty food such as peanut butter, heavy cream, or avocado. This allows the THC to bind to that fat without the added sugar and calories of many other edibles.
Winner of the 2011 High Times Cannabis Cup, Cheeba Chews have a reputation as one of the most consistent and potent edibles on the market. With taffies in chocolate and caramel flavors, their small edible design make it a great product for people who don’t want the burden of eating an entire chocolate bar. Their medical line is especially impressive for patients with high THC tolerance.
Here at Options, we love Dixie’s recreational tinctures. Triple lab tested, they provide consistent, flavorful, and potent products in 100mg THC and CBD:THC. The dropper is also clearly marked for easy and accurate dosing. For fastest absorption, Dixie recommends administering drops underneath the tongue and holding the liquid there for 60 seconds.
CannaPunch, also known under the brand Dutch Girl, has been perfecting their products since 2009. Their non-carbonated, cannabis-infused beverages made with only the highest quality ingredients are especially popular with our recreational customers. They have managed to formulate a punch recipe that is gluten-free, soy-free, corn syrup free, as well as 100% organic and vegan. Under Dutch Girl, we carry their Stroop Wafels, which have a delicious caramel glaze that medical and recreational customers both enjoy.
Made with the purest CO2 cannabis oil, Coda Signature offers specialty, hand painted truffles in delicious gourmet flavors. Their newly launched chocolate bars are equally delicious and are some of our most popular chocolate edibles. With unique flavors such as Coffee & Doughnuts and Salt ‘n’ Nibs, the bars have flavor crystals that really bring out their amazing taste.
Our most popular edible product by far, the Wana gummies are a staple at Options. We offer them in Indica Sour Gummies, Sativa Sour Gummies, Sour Watermelon, and Sour Blueberry. Currently, our medical shop only offers Sour Assorted and Sour Watermelon Gummies. Their Jewels were recently reformulated for a fruitier taste and are now our most popular hard candy in our recreational and medical stores.

For those looking for the effects of smoking THC without directly combusting flower or who are just looking for something a little stronger, there are cannabis concentrates. There are many major manufacturers within the marijuana industry who are producing amazing cannabis concentrates.
What is a Concentrate?
Concentrated marijuana comes in several forms, including waxes, shatters, budders and distillates. It is derived from marijuana plants by extracting the cannabinoids from the plant and making them into a substance that can be heated to create a vapor to inhale, a process many users prefer to smoking marijuana.
There are concentrate products for both medical and recreational use. To learn more about the differences between types of marijuana concentrates, check out this introductory article on Leafly: https://www.leafly.com/news/cannabis-101/what-is-cannabis-oil-shatter-and-wax

Making the Most Out of Concentrates
There are a variety of ways to consume your marijuana concentrates. You can use a dab rig, vape pen, e-nail or even mix it in with your flower. To get the best flavors and effects from your concentrates, we recommend a dab rig or a vape pen (with globe attachment or cartridge).
