Do I qualify for a medical cannabis card?

Medical Cannabis

Medical cannabis, also called medical marijuana, is use of the cannabis plant to treat a disease or condition. Medicinal properties of the cannabis plant mainly come from two chemical compounds: delta-9-tetrahydrocannainol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). THC is the main psychoactive component in cannabis that gives users a “high,” it also stimulates appetite and reduces nausea. CBD is not psychoactive, has been shown to control seizures in some patients, and may have additional medicinal properties.
