Getting a Medical Card Without a Condition

Every state that has legalized medical cannabis has set a list of approved medical conditions. However, states like California allow their recommending physicians to decide if a patient requires a medical marijuana card. Even when your medical condition is not mentioned in California’s list of approved ailments, you can still have your application approved by licensed doctors. Most often, these recommendations are made in the case of chronic pain, anxiety, and insomnia.

If you are trying to get a medical card without a condition , you should consult our doctors for the same.

What are the Medical Marijuana Laws in States

California has stringent medical marijuana laws governing the possession/ consumption, transportation, and cultivation of cannabis.

Possession

A medical marijuana patient can purchase and own up to 8 ounces of medical marijuana, 6 mature plants, or 12 immature plants.

Transport

Patients can carry up to 8 ounces within state borders as long as the product is sealed and stored in the trunk of the vehicle.

Cultivation

Patients can cultivate up to 6 mature or 12 immature plants. To exceed the limit, they must apply for a grower license.

Other Requirements to Qualify for a California MMJ Card

Apart from a qualifying medical condition, there are other requirements that need to be fulfilled if a patient wants to use medical cannabis for their ailment.

  • To begin with, the patient must be 18 years of age or older to apply for the recommendation. Minors (patients below the age of 18) require the assistance of a caregiver.
  • The patient must be a citizen of the state and must provide proof of residence along with other documentation.
  • In the case of a minor, the patient and caregiver must register with the California Medical Marijuana program.

Medical Conditions that Qualify for a California Medical Marijuana Card

California was the first U.S. state to support the cause of legalizing marijuana for medical purposes. Proposition Act 215 (Compassionate Use Act) or the Compassionate Act was passed in 1996 that set up the legal structure surrounding the use of medical cannabis for medical purposes. Since then, the state has decided on a list of medical conditions that would qualify for medical marijuana recommendations.

  • Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS)
  • Anorexia
  • Arthritis
  • Cachexia (Wasting Syndrome)
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Cachexia or The Wasting Syndrome
  • Cancer
  • Chronic pain
  • Glaucoma
  • Migraine
  • Severe Nausea
  • Persistent Muscle Spasms
  • Seizures
  • Any Debilitating Conditions

While there are very limited medical conditions listed under the Medical Marijuana Program, the state also allows its licensed physicians to make the last call. If a physician believes that using cannabis can help manage the symptoms of any debilitating condition that is not specified in the list, they can recommend the use of medical marijuana.
