What is a Doctor’s Recommendation
for Medical Marijuana?

Get Medical Marijuana Recommendation

All California residents have the legal right to use and possess Medical Marijuana, and you can legally speak with a doctor to get a recommendation if you need to use marijuana for medical reasons. Thanks to the Compassionate Use Act of 1996 (Proposition 215), you can legally medicate yourself for pain and other medical conditions.

Millions of patients in California have found medicinal marijuana to be an effective alternative to prescription drugs. If you, or someone you know have pills intolerance, or unable to afford certain prescriptions, having unwanted side effects or afraid of the pill addiction, medical marijuana could help.

Most patients use marijuana for chronic pain, and particularly lower back pain, eating disorders, anxiety, insomnia, migraine headaches, cramps, joint pains. Outside of its well-documented pain control, it relaxes muscles, reducing the spasticity of Parkinson’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis and spinal cord trauma.

It eases the aggressive emotional and physical outbursts found in Alzheimer’s disease, Tourette’s syndrome and alcoholism. Having shown significant results in patients’ with immune or inflammatory mediated illnesses, medical cannabis is being researched for its effect on diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, epilepsy, heartburn, sleep apnea and many others.


There are many ways to use medical marijuana to fit each and every patient. It may not only be vaporized and inhaled with or without smoking, but also eaten in many different ways, applied topically, etc.
With proper use, most patients have no unwanted side effects, no fear of addiction. They are also able to start and stop medicating at will.
In addition, there are many cannabis-based products and strains that give qualified patients all the benefits of the medical marijuana without getting “high”.
