  • Chronic pain
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Glaucoma
  • Hepatitis C

  • Persistent muscle spasms
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Seizures

Qualifying patients must then obtain a certification from their health practitioner certifying the debilitating condition and the relative benefit of medical cannabis use. The Rhode Island Department of Health requires doctors issuing medical marijuana certifications to review an entire year’s worth of your health records, complete a physical and set up continual appointments in six-month intervals. Following that, you have to fill out an application and submit it to the Rohde Island Department of Health.

The state allows patients to assign themselves one primary caregiver who can also have a medical marijuana card. Primary caregivers must be at least 21 years old, and they cannot be the caregivers for more than five medical cannabis patients. You can cultivate up to 12 marijuana plants in one indoor location. If you know someone else with a medical marijuana card, you can both cooperatively cultivate 48 mature marijuana plants in a non-residential setting and 24 mature marijuana plants if the setting is residential.
