Our team of medical professionals will give the recommendations to qualified patients for the use of Medicinal Marijuana for legitimate medical reasons, often as an alternative to pharmaceuticals, which can have many adverse side effects and negative long-term consequences.
To use marijuana for medical purposes, patients need to make an assessment appointment with an official marijuana doctor. The evaluation is the most important part of the application process — it’s where the doctor determines your eligibility and lets you apply with the state.
The physician’s office needs medical records and a valid form of ID before you can go to your appointment. Your medical documents must include an exact diagnosis of the illness you want to treat. You can either bring them with you or complete a record release and check that they got it before you visit.
Your assessment will involve the doctor asking you some questions about your condition and symptoms. Two important factors are whether you’ve tried other treatments before applying for MMJ and whether the benefits of marijuana will outweigh the side effects.
After your assessment, you must see your marijuana doctor for three more months before you can sign up with the state. When you’re in the clear, you can use the Office of Medical Marijuana Use’s website to register. Then, you just have to wait for your card to arrive in the mail and ask your doctor to send a recommendation to a dispensary!
