What is a doctor’s recommendation?
A recommendation is a necessary document to legally purchase cannabis in a state that allows for legal medical cannabis use. The recommendation is not a prescription, but a document that states that a specified person has a medical condition that adheres to qualifying conditions under the state of California under California Proposition 215.

Who is able to legally write a medical marijuana recommendation for me?
Any licensed California physician or Osteopath can recommend or approve your use of medical marijuana. However, not all doctors are informed about the medical use of cannabis. All of our physicians are licensed in the country and state providing telemedicine and have deep knowledge of medicinal marijuana and are comfortable with recommending it as a treatment.
What is the difference between a doctor’s recommendation and an ID card?
A DOCTORS RECOMMENDATION is a document that is issued by a doctor, if you qualify, for the legal use of medical marijuana. An ID CARD is a representation of the actual recommendation that is wallet sized, easy to carry and acceptable at most dispensaries. We suggest that you carry a hard copy of your recommendation upon your first visit to a new dispensary.

How much can I possess or grow?
Currently Bill SB420 states that a standard patient can grow up to 6 mature cannabis plants or 12 immature marijuana clones.

A "Grower Recommendation” is a common phrase used to describe a desire to grow more cannabis that is outlined in Senate Bill 420.
