Green Health Docs has officially opened their Columbia clinic in Missouri. We outline what to expect from the Columbia clinic now that it’s open. Green Health Docs is also looking into opening new locations throughout the state, with Springfield being eyed as the next hot spot for a Green Health Docs medical marijuana evaluation clinic.
Our medical marijuana doctors at Green Health Docs are asked literally hundreds of questions each day about medical marijuana. That’s why we’ve created this new interview series, Ask A Medical Marijuana Doctor, where one of our physicians will answer common questions that many medical marijuana patients ask when visiting our clinics.
Dr. Kathy Trumbull has been seeing patients at our Missouri medical marijuana clinics since we opened our doors this spring. Her knowledge in the cannabis field is outstanding, and her compassion and care for patients is her top priority. We sat down with Dr. Trumbull to discuss some common questions that patients have about using cannabis.
Recently, our team at Green Health Docs was asked to discuss medical marijuana with Fox 4 in Kansas City. The resulting news piece focused largely on warning about the dangers associated with drunk and drugged driving. The report also sported some wildly inaccurate claims about what it’s like to use marijuana.
The Green Health Docs Advocacy Team dissects these claims and outline products that may be safer than others. We also sit down with Dr. Kathy Trumbull in Kansas City to clear the air about medicating with medical marijuana, and how it is uniquely different from getting “high” off a recreational marijuana.
We’re still a few weeks out from knowing which of the five proposed medical conditions will be added to the list of Ohio qualifying conditions, but the State Medical Board of Ohio have officially recommended that autism and anxiety be added to the program. The Green Health Docs Advocacy Team outlines what this means for Ohioans, anxiety patients and those suffering from the symptoms of autism spectrum disorder.
The Buckeye State hit another snag this week as Ohio medical marijuana oils have been temporarily pulled from dispensary shelves. This follows a dispute over a misprint on the product that forced the state to issue the recall.
Below, the Green Health Docs Advocacy Team will take a look at why this recall happened, what it means for Ohio medical marijuana patients, and if marijuana oils will make a return anytime soon.
Students of Ohio University in Athens got a rude awakening this week when Jim Sabin, OU communications specialist, confirmed to Athens News that the school has banned the use of medical marijuana on campus. The university will also not recognize Ohio medical marijuana cards, even if a student is a qualifying patient. The Green Health Docs Advocacy Team will dive into what this means and why it’s both logical and foolish to ban medical marijuana on campus.
Efforts in Missouri are being taken to decriminalize marijuana. Though medical marijuana is technically legal in Missouri already, the state has yet to implement their medical cannabis program. No marijuana is grown or sold legally in the state, and Missouri medical marijuana cards have not yet been issued.
Medical marijuana is quickly coming to Missouri. Patients can’t apply for their official Missouri medical marijuana card yet, but the June 4, 2019 start date is quickly approaching. As of this May 1 writing, we are just over a month away! Because of this, the Green Health Docs Advocacy Team thought it was time to explore what the process will be for becoming a Missouri Medical Marijuana Patient Caregiver.
