  • "MMG provided all the help I needed to get my medical marijuana covered by my auto insurer."
    Linda D
  • "After my car accident, I was in excruciating pain. The medications I was prescribed gave me insomnia and severe digestive issues. The staff at MMG understood my frustrations. Thanks to their knowledge and professionalism, I was able to access a high CBD strain of medical marijuana that continues to alleviate my pain and enable me to function in my day-to-day."
    Carl M
  • "My personal research into the benefits of cannabis began two years ago. Recently with MMG's help I obtained my medical marijuana card because of osteophyte (bone spurs) in my knees. Years of running & weight training. However, in the short time I started ingesting coconut cannabis oil, my knee pain has become minimal. I can bend to a squat position & not have an overwhelming burning sensation in my knees. Years of glucosamine did nothing. I tested cannabis and confirmed it works for me. I'm convinced it can benefit others..."

What is medical marijuana?
Medical marijuana is a prescription drug consisting of the dried buds of the female cannabis plant.

Marijuana provides relief from several serious symptoms such as severe pain, chronic nausea, loss of appetite, muscle spasms and others.
Who should avoid marijuana?
Patients with a history of heart disease, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or other disease of the airways, drug or alcohol abuse or dependence, or a serious mental disorder, such as schizophrenia should all consult their doctor before trying medical marijuana. You should also avoid marijuana if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, planning to get pregnant, or if you are allergic to any cannabinoid.

What’s the difference between Sativa and Indica?
There are two basic types of Cannabis plants, Sativa and Indica. Sativas are taller plants originating from Mexico, Columbia and Southeast Asia. Sativas usually have a higher THC content and cause a stimulating, uplifting effect. Indicas are shorter, dense plants originating from Afghanistan, Morocco, Tibet, etc. Indicas have a more sedative or relaxing effect and can be used for anxiety reduction. Within these two types of Cannabis exist many sub-types or strains of Sativa and Indica. Many of these strains are given seemingly odd or interesting names, usually based on a slang description.
How much marijuana do you need to take, and how often do you take it?
Medical marijuana prescriptions vary depending on the patient’s condition and the strain of marijuana. Your doctor can help you determine the right dosage for your situation. The average use of marijuana for medical purposes is from 1 to 3 grams per day. If you are just beginning to use marijuana, you should start with a small dose and increase it gradually until you reach a comfortable level. The limit set by the MMPR is 30 times the daily quantity of dried marijuana indicated by your doctor on your medical document OR 150 grams – whichever is less.
How do I store my medical marijuana?
Always store your marijuana in a cool, dry and above all SECURE place. Consider using a safe or other locked secure container to store your medicine. Ensure that any edible product is also well marked and secured against mistaken identity.
