At the end of the day, cannabis is a plant. That’s it. Cannabis grows in the ground. It drinks water and nutrients. It absorbs sunlight and grows sticky flowers. In some states, like Missouri, medical marijuana patients are actually allowed to grow cannabis. But in others, like Ohio, New York, Oklahoma and Maryland, the laws are far more restricted and growing cannabis is considered illegal. If cannabis is simply a plant, though, why can’t patients grow it? The Green Health Docs Advocacy Team will take a dive into why states should reconsider their home cultivation laws.
Following the smashing success of Green Health’s telemedicine program in Missouri, Green Health Docs is pleased to announce that we have added three more states to our existing telemedicine program. We’ll break down what this means for patients.
Missouri’s medical marijuana program is still in its infancy, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t gobs of cash to be made for the state. We take a look at how much money Missouri has made from medical cannabis thus far, as well as how many applicants have applied to open a medical cannabis business in the Show Me State.
Growing Missouri medical marijuana at home is easy! We’ve already written up a handy guide to help patients understand how to grow cannabis. This Missouri home cultivation tutorial will walk patients through the process of obtaining their home cultivation license.
Medical marijuana telemedicine is coming to Missouri, thanks to Green Health Docs. Medical marijuana has been legal in Missouri for several months now. Sadly, many patients throughout the state are still struggling to find doctors who will write a letter of certification. This is a requirement by the state in order to obtain a Missouri medical marijuana card. This has left thousands of Missourians across the state without a doctor willing to provide a medical marijuana certification letter.
Missouri patients can finally register their medical marijuana certifications from their Green Health Docs physicians. But how long will it take for the rest of the cannabis industry to catch up and open their doors? Well, the Show Me State took one step closer this week as it was announced that the Missouri application process for cannabis businesses has begun. We break down what to expect from this process.
Medical Marijuana edibles are generally legal in most states with MMJ programs. While Maryland initially banned cannabis edibles, they have recently loosened those restrictions a little. Other states, like Missouri, will have edibles in their dispensaries. We’ll break down why edibles can be a good alternative, and what patients need to know in order to stay safe while using cannabis edibles.
Now that the Missouri medical marijuana patient registry is open, patients have been asking our team at Green Health Docs about what happens next. We take a look at the latest Missouri medical marijuana progress updates to the state’s MMJ program. We’ll also explore how the application process for cannabis industry professionals has been going.
You’ve seen our physicians at Green Health Docs. You have your certification. You’ve registered with the state and gotten proper authorization to grow medical cannabis at home. But then comes the cannabis seed paradox!
Find out what the cannabis seed paradox is below. And how cultivators get around it. (Hint: they break the law)
Not every medical marijuana patient has a spotless criminal record. Mistakes happen. People do foolish things. They get caught. They serve time. It’s a part of life. But not every state allows those with previous criminal convictions to get a medical marijuana card.
The Green Health Docs Advocacy Team takes a look at whether Missouri will allow those with a previous criminal record to get a Missouri medical marijuana card. And even better, can those patients grow cannabis, too?
