Beware of Marijuana Doctor Fraud


A marijuana doctor needs to uphold the same level of care as any physician or a doctor in charge of your health would. Your marijuana doctor is also required to practice medicine in full compliance with the current established practicing standards.

The medical marijuana industry, however, is plagued by fraudulent marijuana doctors who give out invalid recommendations. This means that one needs to be extra careful while getting their recommendation as the wrong doctor could potentially place you in legal jeopardy.

Cannabis, hemp, weed, or plain stash has a fascinating history when it comes to the United States of America. The most talked about and probably the most debated drug of the 20th and 21st century always finds itself featuring among the headlines especially ever since the US decided to make it legal. The history of marijuana begins with hemp. It was so important for America that back in 1619, a law was passed by the states of Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania that hemp must be grown in every farm of the colony. Hemp of the time was used to make bags, paper, and even clothes. In time the itchy shirts of hemp started being outnumbered by softer cotton shirts and with the end of the Civil War it slowly started fading out from the shelves. It was in the late 19th century that marijuana started becoming popular as a medicine. It became a main ingredient in many medicinal products and was sold openly in public pharmacies. In the early 1910s, most of the youth of Mexico fled to the US and brought this herb with them. Slowly but surely, cannabis started gaining the needed recognition, and even in the absence of medical marijuana doctors back then, people were getting cured with weed. During the Great Depression, massive unemployment engulfed the country that led to public resentment towards Mexican immigrants. As the drug was largely associated with them, the prejudice and fear of the spanish speaking community became associated with the herb. Marijuana started getting banned by states on the pretext that it crippled the already limping economy of the country. Till 1931, as many as 29 states declared marijuana an illegal substance, and as the last screw in the coffin, 1937’s Marijuana Tax Act was passed. But then in the beginning of 1950s, a revolution rose again. Cannabis became a style statement among the youth and it again got the recognition it deserved.

People often wonder if they require a medical marijuana card when cannabis for adult use is legal (recreational cannabis) in California. Why get a medical marijuana recommendation when an individual can access cannabis legally with any state-approved ID card? The answer to this depends upon your purpose of consuming cannabis. If you are looking to use it for leisure then recreational cannabis suits you well but if you are looking to manage your condition then getting a medical marijuana card serves well. Leaving aside all legalities and differences, the herb is precisely the same. The only difference that you must take into consideration should be the eventual medical benefits of cannabis. Millions of patients across the United States are successfully using medical marijuana to manage their chronic conditions. That is because medical marijuana allows you to access highly potent strains that are useful for your condition. While recreational marijuana is only limited to certain strains which are not very potent.

Indeed, you are allowed to purchase recreational or medicinal cannabis as long as you are in the legal state boundaries, but with great power comes great responsibility. When you are purchasing, the first thing you need to do is to check the license of the dispensary (online or physical no matter), there are a lot of fake ones, so you must keep that in mind too. Meanwhile, the Medical Marijuana Card gives you the power to buy medical cannabis, but it does not mean that you can buy it off any corner. Dispensaries get exclusive licenses that authorize them to keep and sell cannabis (recreational and medicinal) for commercial purposes. As a cannabis customer, you must clear with the rules and regulations before making a purchase. See, if the dispensary you have chosen to buy your product is a reputed one, the staff should guide you to your ideal strain. But, as this business is still new, finding knowledgeable staff must be a challenging job for the dispensaries as well. Recently, the University of Sciences in Philadelphia announced the first-ever Masters in Business degree with the cannabis subject in the center. The change has begun, but it is still emerging.

Driving with cannabis laws in the State of California is somewhat similar to what state laws are for driving with alcohol. The California Vehicle Code 23222 (b) VC, which came into effect from January 1st, 2018 dictates that a person older than 21 years, can possess and drive with it. There are some tabs on driving with cannabis too; justifiably, you cannot drive with loose cannabis in your vehicle. The offender of carrying loose cannabis in any vehicle is punishable to a fine of not more than $100. The container carrying your marijuana must have a proper seal and that seal should not have been tempered. As for the carrying limit, adults can drive with, up to 1 ounce of cannabis and 8 grams of hashish. Also, the California police cannot put California Vehicle Code 23222 (b) VC into effect against persons hauling medical marijuana. California’s medical marijuana laws protect patients who are traveling with 420 medicine.

Now you can fly with your medical marijuana too, just like a blunt comb, a cotton roll, and other safe things. As per new laws circulated by Los Angeles International Airport, you can carry MMJ in your carry-on bag. These laws dictate that you can fly with as much as 28.5 grams of marijuana and eight grams of concentrated cannabis for personal use. But what confuses the people more than any other thing is the differentiation between the State and Federal laws; at the federal level it is still illegal to possess marijuana of any kind, and the crazy doesn’t stop here. The federal laws control air space. So, it means when you are at the airport of a state where weed is legal, recreational or medicinal and carrying under the legal limit, you cannot be arrested. Nonetheless, once the plane is in the air, they can arrest you. Another confusion here is that the carrier is also subject to arrest if s/he is flying to a state where cannabis is illegal.

How to Talk to Your Medical Marijuana Doctor?


Living with a debilitating condition is challenging for both patients and their caregivers (especially if the caregiver is a family member). They are always on the lookout for a better way that can help manage or improve their condition. In such situations, medical marijuana could be a ray of hope for the ones who have exhausted their options and still need a way to find relief in their life. You will need to start a conversation with a reputed medical marijuana doctor.

Why Should You Get an MMJ Card in a Recreational State?

Why-Should-You-Get-an-MMJ-Card-When-Recreational-Cannabis-is-Legal

Marijuana was legalized in California for medical use in 1996. It was only after 20 years, in 2016 that recreational cannabis (adult-use cannabis) was also legalized in the state. This left a lot of people wondering whether they should get a medical marijuana recommendation or not when they can buy recreational cannabis legally in California with any state-issued ID card. The answer is yes.

Getting a medical marijuana recommendation still makes sense because it lets you enjoy several privileges that recreational users don’t have access to. For instance, medical cannabis is cheaper than recreational cannabis because of tax reductions and discounts available only for medical patients.

The possession limits vary for both categories. Where medical users can purchase and possess up to 8 ounces of cannabis at a time, recreational users have a limit of one ounce. Not just that, medical users get access to more variety and quality of strains than recreational users. So, yes even though recreational cannabis is legal, if you have a medical marijuana condition getting an MMJ card is your best bet.

What to Expect From an MMJ Dispensary?

You might feel apprehensive while entering a dispensary for the first time. But, you can expect security and easiness at a state-licensed store. Just remember to carry your recommendation letter when you visit an MMJ dispensary, The dispensary will enter your details in their system and you can look through the menu until your name is called.

Walk through the store and decide on the products you wish to purchase. If you have any queries, the budtender will help you through the products, their quality, content and type. Once you decide on the cannabis product you want to buy, the budtender will help you complete the transaction. You can also find stores that deliver right at your doorstep using websites like Yelp or Weedmaps.

There was a time when getting cannabis was a hassle. But, not anymore. From being regarded as an immoral part of the society to now getting legalized for medical use, today, getting marijuana for medical use is legal and as easy as buying groceries. The number of dispensaries is ever-increasing and ease of access to these dispensaries is also improving with each passing day. A medical marijuana recommendation will grant you access to a marijuana dispensary in your area licensed by the Bureau of Cannabis Control.

Perks of Having a Medical Marijuana Card

Having-a-Medical-Marijuana-Card

If you think living in a state with legal recreational cannabis allows you to use cannabis the way you want, you are living a dream. The state authorities have imposed many restrictions on recreational users. For instance, you will be allowed to consume cannabis only if you are above 21 years and can possess only a specific amount. But, with a medical card, you can leverage on these limitations. You can start with your cannabis journey at 18 years. And you can consume high THC cannabis strains at lower costs.

Medical marijuana cardholders are exempted from paying the ‘sales and use” tax. That saves you a maximum of 15% on taxes. You can also possess 8 times more than recreational users and extend your growing limits with an MMJ card. In other words, you have a lot to gain with a medical marijuana card in California.

Earlier people used to refrain from getting a medical marijuana recommendation because of the process being too complicated, expensive, and inconvenient. But all that changed with telemedicine entering the fray. It helped develop a process that makes getting a medical marijuana recommendation simple and easy. You can connect with your health professional via video call, get a card and have access to quality MMJ products to manage your condition. So, if you believe medical marijuana can help manage your condition, there no reason to wait.

Side Effects of Medical Cannabis

Medical marijuana is a medicine. So, like any pharmaceutical drug it also has a few side effects associated with it such as an overdose. You can overdose on medical marijuana but it’s highly unlikely to be a fatal scenario. However, the fear of a fatal overdose and the misconception that it might lead you to other drugs could be a reason why patients opt-out of using cannabis as a medical aid. Eating the right amount will help you to avoid consuming more than your body can handle. Hence, no more issues of paranoia, attacks, or dysphoria.

It is important to understand that the effects of cannabis are dose-dependent. The best option for first-timers is to go ‘slow and low’ to experience the best effects of medical marijuana.

Today, cannabis is one of the most popular forms of medication in California. And that is probably because of its effectiveness in managing several conditions and their symptoms. Not just that, medical marijuana is often preferred over conventional medications such as opioids. Where conventional medicines are addictive and may even cause severe side effects, medical marijuana is neither addictive nor causes side effects. Medical cannabis also proves to be equally effective if not better than conventional medications. However, if you still have any concerns regarding medical marijuana treatment, you can contact us. Our medical health professionals are always available to assist you.

Is Recreational And Medical Cannabis Essentially Same?

Is-Recreational-And-Medical-Cannabis-Essentially-Same

Everyone is familiar with the term marijuana. Not hundreds but thousands of tweets, posts, and messages are shared every day arguing about its positive and negative effects. However, the point of difference is primarily between medical and recreational cannabis. Whether you go for medical or recreational marijuana, the product is essentially from the same plant. The difference is in the chemical makeup of the wide range of cannabis strains.

No two strains can be the same. Let’s take an example of OG Kush and Bubble Kush. Both belong to the same family but produce different effects. The former has relaxing and calming effects while the latter one can get you really high. It totally depends on the type of effects you are looking for. If you are into marijuana for fun or recreation, go for cannabis strains with high THC content. However, if you are looking for medical effects, choosing strains with potentially higher therapeutic value will work in your favor.

The rules and regulations regarding medical and recreational cannabis are different. Recreational cannabis is subjected to a potency limit which allows access to only a limited variety of cannabis products. You won’t be able to access high potency strains without a medical marijuana card. So, in that sense they are different. If you have a medical condition and require cannabis treatment, getting a medical marijuana recommendation is essential especially if you have a condition that requires potent cannabis strains.

You Don’t Need a Prescription, You Need a Recommendation

You might find recreational cannabis as an easy way out. But, it can’t help you get medications that are accessible to medical patients only. So, get a doctor’s recommendation and find medical relief using cannabis. As cannabis is a Schedule 1 drug, no doctor can formally prescribe it as a medication. Having a medical card will help you unlock a lot of potential benefits for yourself.

If you wish to get a medical marijuana card, consulting with any practicing physician in California will help. Just make sure that they are licensed and approved by the state to write medical marijuana recommendations. They will evaluate your medical condition to determine whether to issue a medical recommendation or not. But, some of the doctors are not comfortable to inform you about marijuana products or their dosage. If you are in a similar situation, you must visit someone who specializes in medical marijuana evaluations and treatment. We can help you with that. Our team of licensed health professionals will guide you through the process. Our unmatched expertise and years of experience will be useful to you.

Most people often confuse recommendations with prescriptions. But even though it is a recommendation, purchasing medical marijuana with an MMJ card is completely legal. A recommendation basically means that the physician feels medical cannabis could help manage your condition. It is because of medical marijuana’s federal status that it is not a prescription but a recommendation.

Side-Effects-of-Medical-Cannabis

Grow Your Own Cannabis

Medical cannabis is a widely accepted form of medication in California. And deservedly so! It has proven to be effective in the treatment of several mental and physical disabilities. With a medical marijuana card, you can easily access cannabis in the state and also grow your own cannabis plants at home. A growers license gives you the ability to increase your growing limit and have up to 100 square feet of cannabis plants at your home. The only condition is that the homegrown cannabis is only meant for personal use.

Growing your own cannabis will save you a lot of money. The difference in costs of growing your own and buying cannabis is substantial. Also, with the development of new techniques and technology, growing cannabis has become easier than ever. You can choose to grow any strain and have an unlimited supply of your medication. In addition to this, you have control over the growing environment and conditions as well. You get to choose the growing medium, growing conditions like light and temperature and pesticides and fertilizers for your harvest. Based on your preference you can grow cannabis indoors or outdoors. You also get access to parts of the cannabis plant like stems, seeds, and leaves that are trimmed away before being sold. So, if growing interests you, getting a medical marijuana grower license will enable you to grow your own cannabis. And we can help you get the license in a simple and hassle-free process.


Qualifying Conditions For Medical Cannabis in California

Medical marijuana is legal in California for anyone with a medical marijuana recommendation. To get a recommendation you must have a qualifying medical condition. The state of California lists a set of conditions that qualify for a medical marijuana card. These include Anorexia, Chronic Pain, Glaucoma, Arthritis, AIDS, Cachexia, Severe Nausea, Cancer, Seizures, Migraine, Persistent Muscle Spasms, including spasms with Multiple Sclerosis, and any other chronic medical symptoms that:

  • If not, alleviated may cause severe discomfort and harm to the patient’s mental and physical health.
  • Limits the person’s ability to conduct significant life functions as mentioned in the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.

If your medical condition can get better with cannabis, we can help you get medical marijuana treatment. Our medical health professionals are always available to assist you in every manner possible.


Benefits of a Medical Marijuana Recommendation

Getting a medical marijuana recommendation is easy and convenient in California. But if you are on the fence about getting a medical marijuana card, here are some benefits of having a medical marijuana recommendation that can help you make a decision.

Possession Limit and Cultivation Limit: As per proposition 64, individuals with a medical marijuana recommendation can possess and grow more cannabis than recreational users. Where recreational users can buy up to an ounce of cannabis, medical patients are allowed to purchase up to 8 ounces. Medical cannabis patients can cultivate up to 99 cannabis plants in their home according to the requirement of their medical condition.

Age Restriction: An individual has to be 21 or older to purchase cannabis legally from California dispensaries. But with a medical marijuana card, people aged 18 years or above can also have easy access to legal cannabis.

Cost-Effective: Medical marijuana users save money with cannabis as they are exempted from paying sales and use tax on every cannabis purchase. Under the cannabis laws that came into effect in 2018, California levies heavy taxes on concentrates, flowers and other cannabis products at both municipal and state levels. These tax rates can vary from 25% to 45% depending upon the jurisdiction. But with an MMJ Card, a medical cannabis consumer can save money by avoiding these extra charges .

Access to Dispensaries: Despite the legalization of adult-use cannabis, there are a lot more medical cannabis dispensaries than recreational ones. In places with only medical dispensaries, you require an MMJ card to enter and make a purchase. It leaves a large chunk of dispensaries out of reach of recreational cannabis users. So, a medical marijuana recommendation is the best way to access over 1000 dispensaries across California.

Quality MMJ Products: A medical marijuana recommendation is important to access quality medical marijuana products. While recreational users get only a limited access to MMJ products due to potency restrictions and numerous other government limitations, MMJ users can use their medical cards to purchase potent products from any dispensary without restrictions or legal issues.

Medical Cannabis - An Effective Medicine

Medical marijuana has been used for medical purposes since ancient times. Today, the medical potential of cannabis has resurfaced and the green herb has grown into a widely used medication. Several scientific studies prove that cannabis has the potential to help people with physical as well as mental conditions. So, gone are the days where cannabis was considered an immoral part of society. Today, it is legally used by medical patients across California for medical purposes ranging from Cancer and PTSD to anorexia and chronic pain. All you need is a recommendation from a licensed medical health professional and you too can manage your medical condition with cannabis.

Here are some of the key therapeutic properties of cannabis that make it an effective medicine.

Pain-Relief

California’s Compassionate Use Act in 1996 legalized cannabis for medical use in the state. Since then, medical marijuana proved beneficial for several medical situations including pain management. At a time when the negative consequences of the liberalization of opioids and other conventional pain medications are prominent, medical marijuana proved to be savior for patients suffering from chronic as well as mild pain.

Medical marijuana is most commonly used to manage pain. Several studies and research have reflected medical marijuana’s efficiency for the treatment of pain. The use of cannabis for neuropathic pain, spasticity due to multiple sclerosis, and chronic pain are supported by scientific as well as anecdotal evidence. In one such research, six trials were conducted on 325 patients to examine the effects of cannabis on chronic pain. The results suggested that cannabinoids or marijuana is effective for conditions that cause chronic pain. If you have a condition where you experience pain or suffer from chronic pain, medical marijuana could be the solution you are looking for.

Anti-Inflammatory

When WBCs (white blood cells) detect a foreign substance in the body, the immune system gets into action to eliminate the intruder from the body. This process involves an inflammatory response around the affected area. In some cases, the inflammation can occur in the absence of viruses or foreign substances in the body. That means your own cells start working against your body often resulting in inflammation and pain. In either case, medical marijuana can help ease the situation. The chemicals found in cannabis affect the body’s immune system and help manage inflammation and the pain related to it. The two primary cannabinoids - CBD and THC are associated with reducing inflammation. Not just that, they even demonstrate efficacy in reducing the release and production of pro-inflammatory cytokines. Medical conditions such as Crohn’s disease and arthritis can benefit from the anti-inflammatory effects of cannabis. Research suggests that CBD proves to be most effective in combating the condition. So if you are looking for strains to manage inflammation, consider getting CBD-rich products.

Neurological Conditions

Evidence shows that the interest in cannabis, especially CBD, for the treatment of neurological conditions like anxiety and depression has increased in the past few years. Celebrities like Kristen Bell and Jennifer Aniston have shown public support to CBD as a reliever of anxiety and depression. Though the research on cannabis is scarce because of it’s illegal status in the federal laws, several prominent studies reflect on medical marijuana’s proficiency in the management of neurological conditions.

Various research and studies show that the active chemicals in cannabis called cannabinoids relieve neurological symptoms like ADHD, anxiety, and depression. It clearly presents how medical marijuana could revolutionize the healthcare industry. More than 40 million people suffer from mental conditions in the US and most of them live without getting treatment. If you are one of them, getting a medical marijuana recommendation is the best bet towards better health. We have a team of licensed medical health professionals who will evaluate your condition and help you access legal cannabis conveniently. Our simple three step process allows you to get 420 evaluations from the comforts of your home.


Revolutionizing Medical Marijuana In California

You require a medical marijuana recommendation to access cannabis for medical use in California. It is a written recommendation from a licensed medical health professional which states that cannabis could be an effective solution to the patient’s medical condition. It gives you the legal right to use cannabis for medical reasons across California. While receiving your doctor’s recommendation, make sure it has the following.

  • The recommendation letter must include the letterhead of the health professional along with other details about the doctor.
  • License number of the doctor.
  • Verified address of the doctor or the clinic.

A medical marijuana recommendation can only be provided by a medical professional who has the authorization to conduct the evaluation and write the recommendation. The doctors conduct a 420 evaluation to review your medical history and present medical condition and determine if you are eligible for an MMJ card or not. With development in the cannabis industry, the process has become easier, convenient and affordable for the patients. Using telemedicine, patients can avoid visiting a physical clinic and apply for their recommendation from the comforts of their home.

The entire process includes three simple steps- register, complete 420 evaluations and receive your recommendation. Register and fill out a simple prequalification form. Upon submission, you will be connected with a cannabis doctor via video call for 420 evaluations. You will receive the recommendation through email within minutes of qualifying the evaluation. For any concerns regarding the process or medical marijuana, we offer dedicated customer care service that is happy to assist you in every way possible.

How to Find The Right Medical Cannabis Doctor?


It is tough for a first-time medical marijuana patient to gauge what the appointment with a marijuana doctor will look like. The truth is that an appointment with a marijuana doctor is no different from that with any kind of physician. Your interaction with the doctor is a confidential event and your doctor is only allowed to discuss your medical marijuana recommendation and medical condition in the event of a verification. During the evaluation, the doctor will examine your condition and have a look at your previous and current medical records to come to a decision regarding your recommendation.

  • An examination with a licensed MD.
  • Collection of appropriate documentation to come to an appropriate diagnosis given by your current doctor.
  • In case you do not have current active care, your doctor will take on the case themselves or at least refer you to an appropriate doctor.
  • A marijuana doctor will write you a recommendation and not a prescription as cannabis is still classified as a Schedule 1 drug in the United States. Thus rendering marijuana prescriptions illegal.
  • A medical cannabis recommendation is only valid for a year from the date of issue.
  • The marijuana doctor that recommends cannabis to you cannot be affiliated to any cannabis distributor and per the existing law cannot recommend a particular dispensary.

When Californian voters approved Proposition 64, their main motivation was simple: Allowing Californians to be part of the state’s emerging medical cannabis movement and receive complete legal protection for their cannabis use. But the implementation of recreational marijuana policy was not so simple. From January 2018, individuals 21 years and older were allowed to purchase cannabis legally. But there’s a catch. Not every citizen was able to buy it. The truth is that most cities are still not prepared to introduce the much-anticipated laws since the Bureau of Cannabis Control is still in the midst of developing an online system for businesses to apply for operating licenses.

Homeland Security’s Transit Security Administration considers air travel with cannabis as illegal. But medical marijuana users can be exempted from this constraint when traveling to cannabis-friendly airports such as San Francisco and Oakland. Furthermore, even though all counties are legally required to permit a minimum state limit, the maximum amount of cannabis MMJ users can carry differs from one state to another. We advise you to check the concerned airport’s marijuana policy and always keep your medical card with you.
