Lots of reasons. Are you tired of popping pills for pain - pills that are zombifying you and maybe having little-to-no effect on relieving your pain? Do you suffer from nasty migraines, and don’t want the cornucopia of chemicals that most doctors will prescribe you? Or perhaps you suffer from cancer, epilepsy or AIDS/HIV or one or more of many other conditions cannabis can potentially help with?
Then a medical marijuana recommendation and card may well just be exactly what you’re looking for. You need a medical marijuana card to essentially be able to buy it from a dispensary legally - for the moment, anyway.
Many people are coming to the world of medical marijuana in their senior years. Some are younger first-timers, but many of them were once in a world where cannabis was demonized. They’ve often done their research, and found that they’ve been lied to about this wonderful plant. Cannabis is far safer than most drugs produced by big pharmaceuticals, and can help with a broad range of problems. Cannabis has saved people’s lives and their sanity - it’s time its use is accepted.
You must be at least 18 years of age in order to apply for a medical marijuana card in the state of California, whether for yourself or as a caregiver.
Yes, you can technically still use a dispensary with just a recommendation letter. However, we HIGHLY recommend registering for a medical marijuana card as well. It'll save you a lot of headaches, legally or otherwise.
Of course! Feel free to book an appointment with us to renew your medical marijuana recommendation.
Different states have different criteria as to what conditions marijuana can be recommended for. As a general rule of thumb, think "Any condition that has a long-term impact upon quality of life and/or is terminal."
Cannabis (our preferred term for medical marijuana) is commonly recommended for:
- Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
- Parkinson's Disease (PD)
- Alzheimer's Disease
- Bipolar Disorder
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) / Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
- Traumatic injuries requiring significant and long-term surgery (usually series of surgeries lasting over 6 months)
- Addiction (medical marijuana is safer than alcohol, opioids, benzodiazepines etc., and can prove an effective replacement)
- Pre- or Post- Menstrual Syndrome (PMS)
- Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
- Autoimmune conditions like Lupus
The above is just a small list. There are lots of conditions that may be helped treated with medical marijuana. Essentially, if you are in long-term physical and/or mental pain and think/know you suffer from a condition that may be eased by medical marijuana, you ought to give us a call!
We will do all we can to help. We also know lots of great people and dispensaries who can help, too. We will not gouge you for money.
First of all, "cannabis" is a more scientific, less colloquial and more accurate term for the plant. "Medical cannabis", however, has less of a ring to it, and "medical marijuana" helps others understand what we are talking about!
Second of all, there are all sorts of unfortunate negative connotations with the word "marijuana". We feel that the word "marijuana" was used as a propaganda tool in order to fuel the racist, classist "War on Drugs" stemming from the Prohibition era, carried on throughout the 30s and made concrete in the 70s with the Nixon administration.
Of course, words change in tone and meaning over time. The term "marijuana" has probably lost a lot of its negative connotations as it moved into common parlance, and adding the word "medical" in front of it has no doubt improved the image somewhat.
Still, "marijuana" is a propaganda term attached to this wonderful plant in order to demonize it. Were we to be a bit critical theory, we would say that we call cannabis "marijuana" in order to attach it to the "other" - the "other" essentially being people with brown skin. Fortunately, most critical theory isn't worth the paper it's printed on, so we won't delve too much into that area!
Yes, hemp contains many of the same cannabinoids as marijuana. However, the oils and tinctures from medical marijuana are of significantly higher quality.
Extracts, oils, tinctures and other products based on hemp usually utilize industrial hemp. This means heavy metals, pollutants and even potentially deadly pathogens creeping their way into these products. This is also not a very well regulated market at the moment. I would hesitate to call any of these products "medicine" in any way.
Quite simply, it depends upon the medication! One of the best things about medical marijuana/cannabis is that it tends not to interfere with many medications, but this is difficult to tell due to the dearth of information and research on this matter.
Medical marijuana may well interfere with other cannabinoid-based medications, opioid-based painkillers, benzodiazepenes and barbiturates. If you are worried about any of your current medications being interfered with, please ask us. Feel free to show us your current medication list as well, as this can help.
