An estimated 3.4 million people – adults and children are living with the neurological disorder -epilepsy in the U.S., and those numbers rise every year. Seizures are a symptom of epilepsy, although not everyone who appears to have seizures has epilepsy. But anyone can have a seizure. To treat seizures, more people are turning to medical marijuana. If you want to learn more about effective seizures treatment in Boca Raton, call MMJ Care MD, a comprehensive medical marijuana clinic.
Epilepsy is a disorder of the brain, and it’s very common. It causes recurring seizures. Doctors usually diagnose someone with epilepsy, after they’ve had two or more seizures. The medical community has been studying the use of marijuana or cannabis to treat epilepsy and other neurological conditions for years now.
Here in Florida, epilepsy is among the list of “qualifying conditions” a licensed medical marijuana doctor has to certify you have it, in order to be considered for a medical marijuana card. You need that card in order to get a prescription to purchase Low-THC Cannabis, Medical Marijuana or Medical Marijuana Delivery Devices.
We can help you apply for a card. Our certified physicians perform thorough medical marijuana evaluations, including reviewing the patient’s complete medical history. Once our doctor evaluates you, he or she will send in your application to the Office of Medical Marijuana. You will also need to submit a passport photo, a copy of a State ID/proof of residency, and the required state application fee, which is currently $75.
MMJ Care MD was set up by members of the local community, to educate and to help patients who can benefit from the alternative medical marijuana treatment.
