Medical Marijuana Q & A

Who qualifies for a medical marijuana card in Nevada?

According to Nevada revised statute 453A, you must suffer from at least one of the following medical conditions to qualify for a medical marijuana license in Nevada.

Acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS)
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Cachexia, physical wasting and malnutrition related to chronic disease
Severe pain
Severe nausea
Seizures, including all epilepsy-related seizures
Persistent muscle spasms, including those caused by multiple sclerosis

Some of the qualifying conditions aren’t specified. For example, many different conditions can cause severe pain and/or severe nausea, including migraine headaches. So, that means you could qualify for a medical marijuana card if you have migraine headaches that cause severe pain, severe nausea, or both.

Other conditions, such as anorexia nervosa, can also qualify you for a medical marijuana card in Nevada, even though these conditions aren’t explicitly listed in the Nevada revised statutes. The qualifying conditions list was designed to encompass all the conditions that could benefit from medical marijuana use so that qualified medical doctors can recommend marijuana use at their discretion.

You must be a Nevada resident, and must undergo evaluation by a licensed physician like Dr. Smith to qualify for your medical marijuana card.

How does the medical marijuana exam work?

At Ultimate U Medical, Dr. Smith performs medical marijuana evaluations, and then completes a physician statement and recommendation letter for a medical marijuana prescription if you qualify. Your comprehensive exam focuses on your symptoms, current health, and medical history, which helps Dr. Smith make the appropriate diagnosis and recommendation.

How do I know what kind of medical marijuana is best for me?

After you’ve qualified for a Nevada medical marijuana card, Dr. Smith and the Ultimate U Medical team educate you on the different options. They’ll help you learn how to properly use marijuana for medical purposes, and will explain how cannabis and various cannabinoids can affect your body.
