Cultivation and growing of medical cannabis
Several states in America are now allowing valid permit holders to use and cultivate marijuana in the comfort of their own home. Unfortunately, medical cannabis is still illegal on the Federal level. However, there are currently 29 states, including District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and Guam, that allow the personal use of medical marijuana.
Keep in mind there are some restrictions per state. For example, California residents are allowed valid permit holders to grow six mature and 12 immature marijuana plants and possess eight ounces of marijuana. Depending on your health situation and the marijuana recommendation, a MMJ Doctor can extend limits to patients. Every state has different restrictions. That’s why MMJ Doctor and 420 Evaluations educates all patients on local regulations and marijuana laws.
420 doctors are licensed to recommend medical marijuana for debilitating and life-threatening medical conditions. If your doctor has recommended medical marijuana, you can obtain a medical marijuana card and a grower’s license to grow your own medical marijuana at home. This could very well be the best solution to have access to all your medical marijuana products and cultivation information at any of the medical marijuana dispensaries in California. Growing medical cannabis at home will ensure the quality of the cannabis while saving you tons of money.
