With more states making medical cannabis legal, it makes sense that questions would arise as to how to get a medical marijuana card. If you are one of those people wondering about the process, stick around and hopefully this article will give you some answers.
Interestingly, while there are more than 20 states offering medical marijuana cards, people in all U.S. states go through the same process. So, it’s likely less complex than you originally thought. It is also a much safer alternative to getting it off the street from a questionable source and not knowing if you are even receiving what he or she says is in the bag.
Tip #1 – Get a Good Doctor
The doctor gets you the medical marijuana card, and you want to make sure you pick one with a solid reputation. Look online through forums and review sites for recommendations from medical cannabis users.
Once you find a doctor you think sounds decent, book an appointment to meet at his or her office and explain your condition to the professional. Only choose a doctor you feel comfortable around.
Tip #2 – Do Your Homework
Research the laws where you live as different states have different cannabis laws. You want to ensure that every step of the way you are complying with the law. Don’t accidently take a misstep as you try to get your medical marijuana card or when you go to purchase a strain later.
Tip #3 – Selecting the Dispensary
Start looking around at the weed shops in your area when you do get your card. You can find reviews of them online. The web is also a great place to find details about the different strains available to determine which strain best meets your medical needs. With the research, you won’t feel totally overwhelmed the first time you walk through the doors and are also more likely to get quality marijuana.
