MarijuanaDoctors.com offers a wide range of medical marijuana resources for both patients and doctors. This is a relatively new subject area for many people, so there are many questions regarding the types of conditions that can be treated using marijuana, how to approach patients who request medicinal pot, what areas of the country allow medical marijuana and many, many others.
These are just a few of the medical marijuana resources we offer:
One misconception a lot of people have when it comes to medical marijuana is how they go about getting a “prescription” for weed. The reality is they don’t.
What patients get is a certified recommendation from their doctor, which they can then take to a local dispensary in order to obtain the marijuana they need. The topic of recommendations is one of the most important medical cannabis resources we offer — we can show you what to expect during a medical marijuana evaluation and much more.
Interested in finding out how you may be able to participate in the first nationwide medical marijuana study in the U.S? We can point you in the right direction. The study has invited nearly 230,000 medical marijuana patients to participate in the study, and will be used to help convince federal regulators to change the classification of weed as a Schedule I drug.
In addition, more than 460 physicians have been invited to participate in the study, affording them the chance to review their patient’s progress while helping to provide the data needed to provide greater insight on the effectiveness of medical marijuana.
The marijuana plant has a multitude of medicinal applications. There are more than 60 components of the cannabis plant that offer benefits, and which can be used to treat a wide range of symptoms.
But there are industrial applications, as well. Hemp, the fibrous material found on the bark of the cannabis plant, contains a minuscule percentage of the plant’s psychoactive THC. Hemp can be used to make textiles, alternative forms of fuel and even biodegradable plastics.
There is simply overwhelming evidence that shows marijuana provides an incredible number of benefits, helping to treat many different illnesses as well as providing several industrial uses, as well.
These only scratch the surface of the many medical cannabis resources we offer at MarijuanaDoctors.com. We aim to be the go-to source of information for patients and the medical professionals who treat them.
