How Do I Get a Medical Marijuana Card in Illinois?
Illinois has several sets of criteria and procedures to protect patient safety. The first step is to determine if you have one of the qualifying health conditions. Patients must be diagnosed with one or more of these conditions before they can be evaluated for medical cannabis use.
The next step is to schedule an online visit with a medical marijuana doctor. During telemedicine visits, the physician from Essential Nutrition and Wellness - Bloomington, IL - Online Virtual Visitswill review your medical history. He or she will discuss past and present symptoms and conditions and may conduct a pain inventory to assess the level of your current pain symptoms.
When the online medical marijuana evaluation is completed, the patient will receive a signed letter of recommendation for the use of medical marijuana in Illinois. The last step is to visit the Illinois Department of Public Health website and register as a medical cannabis patient.
You will need to provide two pieces of government-issued identification, the signed recommendation letter from the marijuana doctor, and pay a fee to register.

Is Medical Marijuana Effective for Pain Relief and Management?
Patients who have not been successful at managing moderate to severe chronic pain can explore therapeutic treatment plans that involve medical cannabis. Medical cannabis has been used by indigenous and ancient cultures for healing, pain relief, and in other applications for thousands of years.
Patients are not limited to smoking cannabis when it comes to intake or administration methods. Illinois medical marijuana dispensaries carry a large selection of products for medicinal use. Some patients prefer creams or ointments that are THC and CBD infused, to help alleviate pain, applied directly to the area of discomfort. Other patients prefer tinctures or drops under the tongue (sublingual intake) which is more convenient, and fast-acting.
Once you have your Illinois medical marijuana card online, you will be able to visit any licensed dispensary and use your card to purchase medical cannabis products. Residents from Lake Zurich, Palatine, Cary, Carpentersville, Rolling Meadows, Algonquin, Hoffman Estate, and surrounding areas can schedule a medical marijuana card health evaluation with Essential Nutrition and Wellness - Bloomington, IL - Online Virtual Visits.
