A medical marijuana recommendation does exist. Over the U.S, where medical marijuana is legal, physicians issue marijuana recommendations every so often to patients in dire need of relief. Rather than an official recommendation, a medical marijuana recommendation is simply a personal opinion from a doctor that states their opinion that medical marijuana would benefit you in some way. These opinions may be expressed as a recommendation to start using marijuana or as a more detailed explanation of how medical marijuana can help a patient who is in severe pain. While many people who use medical marijuana do not subscribe to the notion that it can be used for recreational purposes, there are many people who do. Therefore, the physician’s opinion has a lot to do with whether a person chooses to use medical marijuana.Learn more by visiting Ohio Green Team – Medical Marijuana Doctors & Recommendations
When the initiative passed all pharmacies were required to sell cannabis without a prescription. This meant that anyone who wanted to purchase could obtain it without going through a doctor’s visit. Since then, some marijuana clinics have been reporting an upsurge in patients seeking the drug without a doctor’s recommendation. While there is still no documentation of any patient getting a recommendation to buy cannabis from a medical marijuana clinic, it stands to reason that this could be because many clinics are now accepting patients seeking the drug without the supervision of doctors.
In order to get a valid medical marijuana recommendation, a patient must fill out an application that will include a self-administered, doctor’s written recommendation. This form can also be filed with the State Health Department and must include information about the patient’s history of medical marijuana use as well as the reasons for the recommendation. After the application is filed, the state department will run the necessary background checks and review the file to make sure that the file is correct and no mistakes have been made. If the file is found to be incomplete or if the grounds for the recommendation are invalid, the state department will require that the physician re-submit the file and provide new, updated information. The process can take up to 45 days from the time that the physician received the file until the new file is approved.
