We want our patients to have their medications but we ask that our patients work with us to ensure delivery is done in an efficient manner.
Medical Marijuana Questions
1. What is Proposition 215 and Senate Bill 420?
Prop 215 was the first statewide medical marijuana measure voted into law in the United States. It provides protection to all seriously ill persons who possess a doctor’s recommendation to use medical marijuana for medicinal purposes. This prop also protects physicians and primary caregivers who provide assistance to these seriously ill persons, who are considered “qualified patients” under Senate Bill 420. SB 420 was enacted into the Health and Safety Code of California (Sections 11362.7 through 11362.83) to address problems with Prop 215 and required the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) to create the Medical Marijuana Program (MMP). The main intent of SB 420 was to create a system for law enforcement and qualified patients to have an identification card that is uniform throughout the state. The California MMP is responsible for creating and maintaining an online registry and verification system for Medical Marijuana Identification Cards (MMIC). The online registration system allows law enforcement and dispensaries to verify that an MMIC is valid.
2. How many states have enacted medical marijuana laws since 1996?
Twenty-one states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington have passed laws for limited legal protections for authorized patients who use or possess cannabis with a doctor’s recommendation.
3. What are the different ways to medicate?
While the common assumption is that most people prefer to smoke, there are many other ways to medicate. Edibles, wax, and hash are other ways of ingesting medical marijuana without smoking. High CBD tinctures and topicals are commonly used to reduce pain and inflammation without the euphoric effects of THC. There are even marijuana teas and sodas for patients to drink. Since everyone has different preferences and needs medicine for different reasons, we carry a wide variety of product for our customer’s convenience.
4. What is THC?
Tetrahydrocannabinol, better known as THC, is the chemical found in marijuana that is most responsible for its physiological effects. Some patients prefer to medicate with marijuana without the THC because of this, but clinical studies have indicated that THC has pain-relieving and pressure-reducing properties that can help patients with severe ailments, such as cancer, epilepsy and any kind of severe pain.
5. What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is the non-psychoactive component that possesses a wide range of therapeutic benefits for patients. CBD greatly enhances THC’s positive effects while negating the effects some people view as negative. It is a very effective treatment option for patients who suffer severe social anxiety and has been shown to stop production of the cancer gene found in metastasis.
6. How much medical marijuana am I allowed to have in my possession?
A qualified patient or primary caregiver may possess no more than 8oz. of dried marijuana per qualified patient. In addition, a qualified patient or primary caregiver may also maintain no more than 6 mature or 12 immature marijuana plants (per Health and Safety Code Section 11362.77)
