How To Get A Medical Marijuana Card

by Charlie Berry

Treatment with marijuana has gone mainstream. It is now a common way of treating all kinds of chronic pains. Medical marijuana has proven to be very effective at helping many people live a more comfortable life. If you are thinking about using this treatment, you will need to get what is known as a medical marijuana card. 

A medical marijuana card will allow you to use cannabis to relieve your pain. Here is a breakdown of what you need to do to obtain this card. 

Do You Qualify?

Depending on where you live the ailment that you need to have to qualify differs. You may find that medical marijuana is allowed in a particular state for one illness but it is not allowed in another state for the same illness.

Here is a short list of some of the diseases that medical marijuana is often allowed to treat.

  • Cancer
  • Migraines
  • HIV and AIDS 
  • Anorexia
  • Parkinson's Disease

If your symptoms from these diseases are severe enough. You can often get the go-ahead to use medical marijuana to relieve your pain.

How to Get a Medical Marijuana Card 

As the name implies, a medical marijuana card is for medical purposes only and you must get a physician to recommend you for one. Once you are given the go-ahead by your doctor, you will be required to sign up for the medical marijuana registry where you live. The good news is that this registration can often be done online.

You will need to create an account online and upload your doctor's approval and give other information about yourself, including your identification. 

Where Can You Buy Medical Marijuana?

When you have a medical marijuana card you can buy marijuana at dispensaries where you live. You can buy marijuana as an oral solution, sprays, pills, dried-out leaves for smoking, and oils.

Marijuana products have different levels of potency depending on how they are used. This means that how long they take to relieve pain can vary.

Get Your Card

Medical marijuana often proves to be a very effective way to relieve chronic pain. However, bear in mind that once you get a marijuana card, it doesn't automatically qualify you to get medical marijuana privileges forever. 

Medical marijuana cards come with an expiration date. Your doctor will need to reassess your condition once the card expires. If your doctor feels that you should continue using medical marijuana they will give you the approval to get the card renewed.
