Frequent Questions

What is a qualifying medical condition?

California law includes the following as qualifying conditions: “treatment of cancer, anorexia, AIDS, chronic pain, spasticity, glaucoma, arthritis, migraine, or any other illness for which marijuana provides relief”. Our doctors have vast clinical experience in evaluating the effects of medical cannabis for many different illnesses. We have found that the benefits include better sleep, less pain, less anxiety, less depression, improved appetite, decreased nausea, more mobility and less use of prescribed medicines. Our patients report that when they are able to have relief from the chronic symptoms of illness without the negative side effects from synthetic medications, they have an improved quality of life, with less stress, better interpersonal relationships, better job performance, and overall a better life.

Should I worry about any privacy issues if I get a medical marijuana approval?

There is no need to worry about anyone knowing about your visit or approval. Your visit and approval are protected by the privacy laws (HIPAA privacy guidelines), just like when you are seen by your regular doctor or if you are seen at a hospital. Your name does not go onto any public or government list.  Our verification system is HIPAA compliant and encrypted so that your information is protected.
