Getting Your Medical Marijuana Patient ID Card in Puerto Rico

Before you can buy medical marijuana from a licensed dispensary, you must establish your eligibility to use these products.
Dispensaries like Encanna are not allowed to sell their products to just anyone. But once you’ve acquired your medical marijuana patient ID card, you’ll be allowed to purchase up to a 30-day supply (1.5 ounces per day) of cannabis-based medication on your first visit.

All new medical marijuana patient ID cards are valid for a period of one year, and once they expire you will have to renew your application to receive a new card.

Few realize that a mood disorder is the world’s leading cause of disability, but depression does indeed hold that dubious distinction.

Across the globe an estimated 350 million adults will suffer from clinical depression in any given year, and that number includes 19 million Americans (7 percent of the adult population).

Men and women with depression may seem fine on the outside, but on the inside their suffering is profound. Like a psychic vampire, depression drains its victims of energy and motivation, making it next to impossible for sufferers to function normally. If left untreated depression can lead to broken relationships, unemployment, multiple health problems and even suicide in the most extreme cases.

Treating Cancer with Medical Marijuana

No disease is more dreaded and feared than cancer. At present, up to 40 percent of all Americans will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives.
The good news is that survival rates for cancer are also going up. There are differences between cancers (some have much higher fatality rates than others), but overall the trends are positive and encouraging.
Refinement of treatment methods and better preventive techniques are responsible for these improvements, and medical marijuana may be contributing (indirectly) to the upsurge in cancer survival. If you want to start treating cancer with medical marijuana, here is a guide to help you.

But you may be skeptical. You may believe advocates for medical-grade cannabis products are exaggerating its health benefits to bolster support for legalization.
