Medical cannabis is now legal in the majority of all U.S. states. This had to happen because, as time went on, research showed that marijuana can offer millions of people suffering from a variety of illnesses great relief from their symptoms. However, legally obtaining marijuana takes some planning. There are certain key steps you need to take in order to attain your official cannabis certification.
Attaining a Legal Cannabis Card
In order to possess medical cannabis legally, you have to have a medical marijuana card. This will give you access to some of the most beneficial cannabis strains available in the country and protect you from being prosecuted for having cannabis in your possession. Millions of people who live in severe pain and discomfort have benefited from using cannabis. Millions of other people have used cannabis to relieve mental health disorder symptoms, including post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD).
Attaining Your Medical Cannabis Card
In order to qualify for a medical cannabis card, you will have to get a written referral from a certified medical professional with a medical cannabis license. This will start the process and, if you are approved, you should receive your medical cannabis card. Our staff of physicians is certified with medical cannabis licenses. All we need you to do is come in for a consultation with your paperwork handy.
The first step is to gather all of your health records that prove you have a disability or illness that can be treated with the help of medical marijuana. These documents will be necessary because our physicians will need to double-check these documents when they give you your general physical examination. The point is to confirm that our patients do have these illnesses or health conditions. Along with medical records, you will need to have a state I.D. or a driver’s license as proof of your identity and address.
Medical Conditions Approved for Cannabis Certification
Depending on where you live, you will need to be aware of the illnesses and conditions that are approved for medical marijuana. These can include, but are not limited to:
- Muscular Dystrophy
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Multiple Sclerosis
Please remember that there are certain other illnesses and health conditions that qualify. This is just a general list of the most common conditions approved for medical marijuana. It is then up to the physician who is conducting your examination to confirm that you qualify. He or she can then provide you with written and signed documentation that you can take with you as proof that medical marijuana can treat your condition.
