Should I consider medicinal marijuana?
Medical marijuana is now available in the Lancaster County area. Are you considering and weighing the options of whether it's the right choice for you?
From asthma to bipolar to menstrual cramp pain there's clinical research showing the benefits of medicinal marijuana. See additional studies on marijuana to treat medical disorders: https://www.medicaljane.com/category/cannabis-classroom/ailment-research/#latest-ailment-research
What steps should you consider as you weigh your options?
1. Meet with your medical doctor to get their professional opinion
2. Anticipate a wait. Many of the centers in Lancaster county in beyond have 100+ patients on the wait list: https://lancasteronline.com/news/local/lancaster-county-s-only-medical-marijuana-dispensary-to-open-march/article_9e95dbc4-0dd4-11e8-b728-173c1e2cfd06.html
3. Talk to a licensed mental health clinician to get their professional opinion (and a letter to bring to your appointment when visiting the center)
4. Understand that marijuana products are currently being limited due to high demand. See this interview to learn more: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29E6K77Mmkw
