Nearly half of America’s states are flush with medical cannabis. While some state laws remain incredibly strict, with medical cannabis cards kept under lock and key and very few approved medical conditions, other areas are choosing to make the process simpler. Regardless of where the legal cannabis is coming from, medical patients all must go through the same procedures when it comes to obtaining their medical cannabis cards. For first-timers, it can be a confusing process; don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Here are five tips to help any first-time patient obtain their medical cannabis card.
1. Become a legal eagle
It’s important to know your specific state’s laws before obtaining a medical card to ensure no rule breaking occurs.
2. Doctors with cannabis to offer
California takes it a step further with services like NuggMD. Patients can visit a doctor via video conference, obtain their medical card and have cannabis delivered, all without ever leaving home.
3. Dispensaries are key
4. Talk to a ‘tender
5. Relax with your medical cannabis card
First-time medical cannabis patients will find the process of purchasing cannabis from a dispensary, as opposed to the black market, becomes second nature after a while. The normalcy sets in and patients truly begin to enjoy and understand all the benefits of legal medical cannabis.
Following these few steps will make the beginning experiences run smoothly, ensuring every new medical cannabis patient receives the medicine they need.
