Top Benefits of Having Your Medical Marijuana Card

WRITTEN BY: Veriheal

With the use of medicinal marijuana booming, estimated at almost 4.5 million patients in 2020, it’s time to talk about the top benefits of obtaining your medical marijuana recommendation. Below Veriheal breaks down the top reasons to invest in a recommendation. 


Legal Protection

Even if recreational marijuana is currently legal in your state, cannabis is still an illegal drug federally and the state level laws on marijuana usage are constantly changing. Getting your medical marijuana recommendation offers an added layer of protection in these confusing times. 

Veriheal was founded in 2016 to help clear up this confusion by providing much needed cannabis education while connecting patients with licensed medical marijuana doctors across the country for quick, pain free recommendations. If you smoke in public, depending upon the marijuana laws in your state, it’s safest if you have your medical marijuana recommendation. 

Think of it like this, when you get pulled over while driving what is the first thing you reach for showing you have a valid right to be behind that wheel? Your license. Your recommendation is similar to having a driver's license; it’s your valid right to have cannabis in your possession according to the medical marijuana laws of your state. 

Consistent Access to Quality Marijuana

It doesn’t matter how good your plug is, they can’t guarantee you the consistency in quality or availability of professionally grown medical grade cannabis.

It’s also much safer too because your plug has no idea what’s been added to those home grown plants or what possibly dangerous additives are in those homemade cartridges. With your medical recommendation, you can choose who is growing your product and request third party lab test results showing what’s actually in the cannabis you’re ingesting. 

More Options

Medical marijuana sales topped over seven billion in 2020 because dispensaries offer the most broad range of strains from sativa to indica and hybrids. These come in every form from lotions to edibles to vapes to flowers. You’ll be able to get the exact level of THC to CBD ratios you want. 

On top of this, you’ll be able to speak directly to a budtender who hears what’s working for others. Or you can hop onto Veriheal’s Cannabis Central to access over 1,000 informative cannabis articles on the latest in cannabis education. 

You’re Helping Others

Millions of people suffer in pain because they are stuck in illegal states, so every person who stands up and says “Yes, I use this product medicinally” is also saying “I believe my fellow Americans still suffering in illegal states deserve the same access to medical cannabis that I have.” Getting your medical marijuana recommendation is easy with Veriheal. Veriheal’s three step recommendation streamlines the process.
