Continually moving forward, as a nation includes de-limiting our personal freedoms, those freedoms should encompass a freedom to seek natural and alternative treatments for various ailments, conditions, and illnesses. Medical marijuana exists to do just that: provide an alternative to traditional medicines and pharmaceuticals. More and more citizens are going this route. This is no surprise as death and addiction rates due to prescription medications are rampant. Opioid addiction is real. Benzodiazipine reliance is skyrocketing. But the hope lies in going natural.
Arkansas did just that in 2016 when they legalized medical marijuana.
The program is still in its early days, but it is growing. Support is there, despite Arkansas being considered a more traditional state.
The Arkansas Medical Marijuana Program exists to get patients the care they want, and in many cases, may need. As of July 2019, there are over 15,000 patients using this program. With a few simple steps, you too can be one of those patients. Let’s take some time to walk through the Arkansas medical marijuana program. We’ll take a look at the requirements, costs, and more.
The first step, as is true in most states, is to get in front of a state-licensed marijuana physician. This can be a daunting task, especially if you are afraid of your primary care physician’s response when you ask about medical cannabis. Before we get into what conditions qualify you for Arkansas’s medical marijuana program, you should know the general requirements. There are a few:
As far as qualifying conditions go, there are many:
Once you are approved by a physician, you will fill out an online application form. This can be found here. There will be a $50.00 payment required, as well as your physician certification and state ID.
Remember to fill out the application in its entirety. Remember your SSN, your military status, your state ID, certification, and your signature (using your finger or mouse)!
As with most privileges, there exists many rules, regulations, and stipulations that you must adhere to. Having a medical marijuana card in Arkansas does not give you free rein to smoke anywhere, loud and proud and making a scene.
You may not use medical cannabis at the following:
Veriheal comes in the second that you need assistance. We provide you with access to a qualified, licensed doctor. Your consultation will be done securely and in total privacy. Once you’ve seen our doctor, we will walk with you throughout the remainder of the process, providing assistance at every opportunity.
For $200, you can allow us to help you. It’s our dream, passion, and goal to get as many people treated naturally as we can. We don’t do it for the bragging rights, money, fame, or whatever. We do this because we love cannabis, and we truly believe in its healing powers.
Don’t hesitate. If you are considering natural treatment, talk to us. Let’s get your new life rolling, together.
