Medical Cannabis FAQs


How can Medical Marijuana help me?
You may be one of millions of Americans suffering the effects of a qualifying medical condition for which doctors can recommend medical marijuana as a remedy in 33 states. Over three million medical-cannabis patients in the U.S. already find life-changing improvement to their wellness.

Substantial evidence exists that medical cannabis is effective for treating chronic pain. It’s also used to treat chronic conditions like cancer, arthritis, and neurological conditions including anxiety, depression, epilepsy, and Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease, and even to reduce nausea, improve sleep, and alleviate stress and anxiety.

Depending on the state, you may qualify for treatment with medical marijuana if you meet certain requirements and have a qualifying condition, such as:

  • Alzheimer's disease
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  • Arthritis
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Cancer
  • Crohn's disease
  • Epilepsy and seizures
  • Glaucoma
  • Migraines
  • Multiple sclerosis and muscle spasms
  • Severe and chronic pain
  • Severe nausea
  • Persistent muscle spasm

Many other chronic or persistent medical conditions that either substantially limit a person’s ability to conduct one or more of major life activities or could cause harm to the patient’s health are recognized by various states as a basis for doctor recommendations of medical cannabis.
What happens if I don't qualify for a Medical Marijuana card?
Our trained concierges walk you through a pre-screening process to ensure you are properly qualified before scheduling your doctor appointment. After pre-screening, failure to qualify is rare. But, if your doctor determines you don't qualify, your fee is waived. All fees are returned/credited to your credit/debit card.
What is included with my Medical Marijuana Card?
As a member of the MJ Medical Marijuana Program, you receive important and valuable benefits:

  • Quick online access to your Medical Marijuana Card (recommendation)—any time.
  • 10% savings at participating network dispensaries.
  • 10% savings for home delivery*.
  • Well-trained ASCM doctors who take the time to understand your individual needs and concerns.
  • Ongoing medical and product support, not just one call one time.
  • National online community to discuss all things medical marijuana.

  • * Where available.
How soon should I expect my Medical Marijuana Card?
Once the doctor appointment is completed, you will receive your card within 24 hours. If you need it sooner, your Medical Marijuana Concierge can help expedite access.
How do I find a dispensary or learn more about home delivery?
As a member of MJ Medical, you have access to dispensaries in your area. In addition, your Medical Marijuana Concierge can help you find the best dispensary for your needs.
How will I know what product to buy at the dispensary?
All doctors who are a part of the MJ Medical Marijuana Program are members of the prestigious American Society of Cannabis Medicine. ASCM doctors have the knowledge and experience to help you select cannabis strains and formulations best suited for your medical condition. In addition, your Concierge can help you find the best dispensary for what you need. Our Platform also has resources available to help you research and compare the best products.
How do I know I’m getting reliable medical advice and a doctor I can trust?
We help patients gain the right medical advice for their unique conditions. Patients trust MJ Medical-CannaLnx’s ASCM doctors—because they work with patients to develop, manage, and fine-tune medical-cannabis remedies for improved medical outcomes. They’re experts in medical cannabis who take your medical interests seriously and will be there throughout the journey.
Why are ASCM doctors recommended for my needs?
The American Society of Cannabis Medicine is a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing medical science concerning cannabis. Its member doctors specialize in medical cannabis treatments. MJ Medical-CannaLnx relies on and recommends—and its members get access to—ASCM doctors trained in medical cannabis science, treatments, and specialties. ASCM doctors work closely with us, take your health very seriously, and are dedicated to your well-being. They talk to you, understand your health and wellness goals, evaluate side effects, and offer substantive well-considered treatment programs.
How can I save money on my medical-cannabis purchases?
Member First Network Savings — We offer patients the Member First Network / CannaScripts savings card, entitling them to significant savings at dispensaries across the country (10% off medcan purchases, free delivery, trusted dispensary partners). These savings can quickly total more than patients’ first appointment with an ASCM doctor. Patients can’t access this savings card through other platforms offering connections with low-priced medical-cannabis-certifying doctors.
Where can I learn from others about how medical cannabis works for my condition?
  • Community Forum Feature — Through MJ Medical-CannaLnx’s “MyLnx” community-forum feature subscribing patients can review/consider the experience of other patients and doctors (and dispensary technicians) with medical-cannabis products and share their own medical-cannabis experience and outcomes. The subscriber-only forum lets patients talk to—and learn from—each other about their experience.

  • Secure Intra-System Email (with Alerts Feature) — Our full-featured and secure email allows patients to communicate with each other and doctors (and dispensaries, growers, processors, test labs) privately and safely.

  • Direct Connections to Physicians and Dispensaries — MJ Medical-CannaLnx hosts efficient essential information flow and reliable communication between doctors, patients and dispensaries, ensuring coordination to facilitate medical-cannabis transactions. The system permits reliable organization via digital/electronic processing—doctor to dispensary—with patients at the center of care.
