Benefits of Having a Virginia Medical Marijuana Card
Medical marijuana treatment is on the rise! With medical marijuana legal in the majority of U.S. states, more patients are turning to cannabis to help treat their medical conditions and ailments. If you are considering obtaining your Virginia Marijuana Card, here are some of the benefits of owning a card.
1. Medicinal Benefits of Cannabis
Medical marijuana has the potential to provide significant relief for individuals who suffer from a variety of medical conditions. Medical cannabis helps alleviate symptoms stemming from chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia, PTSD and more.
In the majority of states where medical marijuana is legal, there are specific medical conditions that qualify an individual to be eligible for medical marijuana treatment. Fortunately in Virginia, you must simply be recommended by a licensed Virginia physician with a condition that the physician deems can benefit from medical marijuana treatment. Therefore, any medical condition has the potential to qualify a patient for a Virginia Marijuana Card recommendation.
2. Get Access To Dispensaries
With a medical marijuana card in hand, you will be able to access licensed dispensaries located across Virginia and purchase products. Once dispensaries in Virginia open, they will offer a wide variety of products including capsules, sprays, tinctures, oils, creams, gels, patches and more so you will be able to purchase a product that best fits your needs.
3. Legal Protection
Being a registered medical marijuana patient allows you to legally possess, consume and transport medical marijuana in Virginia and demonstrates that you are registered with Virginia’s medical marijuana program. If you have purchased products from a licensed Virginia dispensary, be sure to keep your medical marijuana card on you at all times.
4. Registered Agents
Registered agents, otherwise known as caregivers, are individuals who may visit dispensaries and purchase medical marijuana products on behalf of a patient. If you have a medical condition that does not allow you to physically go to the dispensary, your designated registered agent is able to purchase medical marijuana products and administer it to you. Registered agents may serve up to two medical marijuana patients.
