I am so grateful for Marijuana Doctors for giving me the information and referrals I need to get treated for breast cancer with cannabis instead of harsh chemicals and radiation. I was guided through the whole process and I have been using the sublingual tincture with 1:1 ratio of CBD to THC, and I am feeling fantastic.

I was looking for a place to get my MMMP card. I found Marijuana Doctors, and they sent me to the AMMA Medical Clinic. I loved it. I was not there forever. It was a great experience, and I will be sending my friends.

Hello. I would like to say that I have had a pleasant experience with this website. They have been very helpful. I told them I was older, and they walked me through the steps I needed to do. Everyone did what they said. In today’s environment, that is a rare and good thing for people to have a genuine concern. Thank you.
