With the new new laws going into effect in California on Jan 1, 2018 for recreational marijuana, you might be wondering why you should even bother with a medical license. And you might even be wondering, why would I want to get one in the first place? Although you can buy marijuana with our without a license, the price you pay might differ a lot. There are many taxes being imposed on anyone selling recreational, and we are passing down those expenses to the consumer.

If your curious about all the buzz but unsure about why or how you’d get a license, keep reading and we’ll answer those questions for you. First lets answer why. If you know anything about marijuana, or pot, I’m sure you are familiar with the fact that you can get the munchies. Stimulating appetite is one good reason you might want to smoke it. If you have suffered from any kind of pain or nausea and didn’t feel like eating, pot can help you feel more settled and  stimulate your appetite.

Another known issue it treats is anxiety thanks to the help of CBD.  CBD is the compound in marijuana that doesn’t get you high, and has many beneficial  effects, including reducing pain and seizures.  If you suffer from Parkinson’s Disease, PTSD or Glaucoma, it can also be of aid. In fact, there are 23 health benefits of marijuana that are worth reading up on.

Now that we covered what you might use it for, let’s cover how to get a license. You will have to go to a clinic or visit a business online that administers licenses for medical marijuana. It can be as easy as signing up online at 420 evaluations. Or searching for “getting a medical card near me” in a Google search. A licensed doctor will talk to you about  what you are suffering from and why you are seeking to use marijuana. If you need a reminder with what it  helps with, there are 23 reasons listed in the link to the article above.

It’s really that simple and could honestly take 5-10 minutes. Once approved, you’ll pay a fee for a paper copy of the license immediately. Cards are also available to get in addition for an extra fee.   Licenses are usually good for one year. You will then just take the card to a dispensary and sign up with your card. The business will verify your license (or req, as it’s often referred to) is valid, then you are good to make a purchase with that dispensary/delivery.  You must join each dispensary or delivery you want to order at.  It’s that simple.
