Why it is important to renew your Medical Marijuana Card?
A medical marijuana card in California allows you to purchase, possess, grow and travel with a certain amount of cannabis that is best fit to treat your medical conditions. Without this MMJ card, you cannot access local dispensaries in your area, nor legally consume high potency cannabis products. Medical marijuana cards issued by licensed doctors in California expire a year from the date of issuance. If you want a continuous supply of legal cannabis to manage your medical condition, it is in your best interest to renew your card before it expires. Once the card expires, you’ll have to apply for a new one, starting from scratch.
How Often Should I Renew my California Medical Marijuana Card?
You must renew your California Medical Marijuana card every year. California Cannabis card are valid for a period of 1 year from the date they are approved. During this year, you can legally purchase, possess, carry and grow the legal amount of medical cannabis as per state laws.

The legal age to buy cannabis recreationally is 21 years. Medical users can however make a purchase even at 18 years of age.
Higher Grow Limit
A medical user in California can grow a significantly higher amount of cannabis in comparison to a recreational user provided you have a medical marijuana card.
You save a large chunk of your money when you have a medical marijuana card. Ownership of a medical marijuana card means that you don’t have to pay the taxes levied on marijuana.
Higher Possession Limit
A recreational user is allowed to possess an ounce of plant material and 8g of concentrated cannabis. A medical user is allowed to carry 8 times that amount.

What You Should Know About Medical Marijuana Evaluations
Any doctor with a licence to practise in California has the ability to recommend marijuana to a patient whose condition fulfils the eligibility criteria set by the senate bill 420. The list of qualifying conditions is quite extensive and includes but is not limited to chronic pain, cancer, glaucoma, muscle spasticity, AIDS, seizures, nausea, migraines, or in other words, any problem for which marijuana can provide some kind of relief.
The biggest misconception that exists during a medical marijuana evaluation is that you will receive a medical marijuana card- which is slightly confusing as what you get at the end of consultation is a doctor’s recommendation. After you get that you can make the decision to get an MMIC for extra identification.
So, how do you get your recommendation? There are two ways you can get them
This is the more complicated way to get your rec. You first need to find a pro-cannabis doctor willing to carry out your consultation. If they decide that cannabis is a good fit for your condition, they will give you your doctor’s recommendation after which you can make your way to a medical dispensary and get your medication.
The problem with this method is that you often encounter long wait times and not a lot of guidance from the doctor as they are usually swamped with patients throughout the day. You can walk into our clinic but even that would require you to leave the comfort of your house. Which is why we have a better option for you.
