Most people read or hear about using marijuana as a way to handle their illnesses, yet they have no clue how to go about getting the prescription or how to even begin the process of having access to medical marijuana. In order to be able to get medical marijuana, you have to make sure that you are eligible or rather your condition is covered under those in which medical marijuana can be prescribed.
Some of these conditions include: arthritis, multiple sclerosis, cancer, muscle spasms, sleep disorders, anxiety, Crohn’s disease, etc. If you have also been in an auto accident, and experience some pains or stress disorders as a result, you might be eligible to be prescribed medical marijuana as a way to treat your condition.
Once you fall under the category, the next step is to speak to your family physician or a doctor so that the risk can be assessed. After this, your doctor will prescribe the medical marijuana as they see fit in its ability to control or reduce the symptoms of your condition. Once approved, you are then given a card. With this card, you are now eligible to use medical marijuana as a means of coping with your sickness or symptoms.
In terms of getting the cannabis, there are a variety of ways. Firstly, you can grow your own up a certain amount, depending on what city you live in. For example, Santa Barbara does not have a lot of medical marijuana dispensaries so they encourage card-carrying patients to grow theirs.
The second way to get it is to visit a dispensary in your city in which you can purchase amounts of medical marijuana and other cannabis paraphernalia.
Thirdly, you can have it right at your doorsteps by using a registered delivery service and finally there is always the option of buying medical marijuana online.
