Medical marijuana comes from the cannabis sativa plant. This plant contains several active compounds, including delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
THC is the ingredient that gives you a “high” when you consume it. This active ingredient can also relieve pain and a variety of other symptoms that result from an injury or underlying medical condition.
You can smoke medical marijuana, take it in pill form or as a liquid, or vaporize it. The effects of medical marijuana depend on how you use it and your individual response to THC.
Many people use medical marijuana with minimal side effects. However, you can experience dizziness, drowsiness, or an irregular heartbeat while using marijuana. Some people also have difficulties concentrating or short-term memory loss.
There are many uses for medical marijuana, and it can be useful in treating a wide range of medical conditions, such as:
Medical marijuana can also be useful for controlling persistent nausea and vomiting that certain medical issues can cause. Or, if you have a condition that causes unhealthy weight loss, you may benefit from using medical marijuana to stimulate your appetite.
Assured Care Group, LLC offers medical marijuana as part of the treatment plan for a number of health conditions. Laura determines if you’re a candidate for medical marijuana by reviewing your medical history and the other therapies you use to treat your condition.
Laura can also qualify you for a marijuana card through the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission (MMCC).
To be eligible for a medical marijuana card in Maryland, you must live in the state and have the recommendation of a physician to use medical marijuana for a qualifying medical condition.
Assured Care Group, LLC offers medical marijuana cards and renewal services. You must first complete your registration with the MMCC before speaking with Laura about qualifying for the program. The office makes same-day appointments available.
After you receive approval in the program, you can shop for medical marijuana at any licensed medical marijuana dispensary throughout the state.
