Missouri medical marijuana certification has begun. This means that patients who have been waiting to get a legal Missouri medical marijuana card will finally be able to qualify. The state will open its medical cannabis registry July 4, 2019. Patients, however, can begin receiving their medical marijuana certifications from licensed medical marijuana physicians 30 days prior, beginning June 4, 2019.
A powerful storm system recently plowed through Jefferson City in Missouri. While this storm won’t slow the progress of medical marijuana in the Show-Me State, our team wanted to offer our support in providing Jefferson City tornado relief. We also outline where and how you can contribute to this cause.
The Green Health Docs Advocacy Team is gearing up to hit the road this summer to help educate the public about medical cannabis, and set medical marijuana evaluation appointments for qualifying patients. In this blog, we’ll take a look at several upcoming Missouri cannabis events where you can expect to see the Green Health Docs Advocacy Team in action, answering all your questions about Missouri cannabis.
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.
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 licenses are soon to be handed out! The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services have announced that they will be granting 338 licenses to cannabis businesses. The DHSS also stated that the application process for incoming businesses will begin June 4. Plans for review will take place in late summer, from August 3-17.
So what does that mean for Missouri patients exactly? Our team at Green Health Docs will explore below.
There were hundreds of 420 events, festivals and celebrations held over the April 20, 2019 weekend. Green Health Docs attended several events, including the National Cannabis Festival in DC and Breaking the Stigma, a 420 fest held at Maggie O’Brien’s Irish Pub in St. Louis. Green Health Docs was on hand to answer questions about cannabis, provide evaluations and share in the love of marijuana.
Missouri will officially launch their “420 drugged-driving enforcement campaign” this coming weekend in an effort to crack down on those driving under the influence of drugs. This means that police will be patrolling the state (April 20, 2019) seeking to bust those specifically using drugs.
Missouri residents have been waiting for medical marijuana in their state for over half a year. One of the biggest hurdles that the industry faces is when the Missouri medical marijuana registration will open and what exactly will happen for patients when it does. We break down the entire process.
Ever since Missouri passed their medical marijuana law, many have been wondering just how many potential patients the state will eventually have once the program is fully operational. The Kansas City Star is now reporting that the state hired a team at the University of Missouri to determine the Missouri medical marijuana patient projection numbers. However, their research confusingly suggests a mere 26,000 medical marijuana patients will exist in Missouri by the end of 2022.
Medical marijuana has long been used to treat a number of medical conditions, many of which manifest physical symptoms that marijuana (also known as cannabis) can address. Cannabis is not only beneficial to the body, but also the mind. We will take a look at how cannabis can help with PTSD and other psychological disorders, like anxiety and depression.
