Cannabidiol or CBD  helps in curing inflammation along with anxiety. Marijuana medical uses include treatment of cancer such as lung cancer, breast cancer and also treatment of arthritis, inflammation and many more. It is because of this that marijuana’s medical use has been legalized in many countries today.

In the United States medical use of Marijuana has been legalized in 16 states including California. In fact it is one of the most liberal of US states as far as use of marijuana is concerned. Medical use of marijuana was legalized in 1996 when Proposition 215 was accepted by 56 percent of voters in a state wide poll. This act legalized the possession, use and cultivation of marijuana by patients .However such use has to be recommended by a doctor. An intake of 8 ounce of marijuana is considered legal for medical purposes under the California medical marijuana laws.

In California as in other states for treatment of diseases by using medical marijuana, one needs a medical marijuana card . Such use has to be recommended by a doctor as mentioned earlier.  California medical marijuana laws have legalized the use of  marijuana to provide relief for a number of diseases like arthritis ,cancer, HIV /AIDS,multiple sclerosis ,migraine epilepsy and many other. In may be used in any dispensary in California. It is believed that there are more than 2000 clinics,dispensaries and taxi services that offer medical marijuana treatment to patients.

In order to get a medical marijuana card ,California medical marijuana  laws require the patient to be a resident of California with a valid ID proof of residency. The identity poof to get a Californian medical marijuana card can be a driving license, a passport or any photo ID which contains your residential address. The person be 18 years of age. If he is below that age than parents or guardians have to accompany him. The person should contact the county he lives in for the county program on medical marijuana. Till November 2009 only three Californian counties had not implemented the medical use of marijuana. The person needs to fill a form for both applying for a new card or renewal. Then he has to ask a doctor to fill up the columns relating to the patients medical records. After that he should send the completed application form addressed to the  Department of Public Heath of California. It has to be remembered that there are different administration fees for the counties and the state of California. The Californian medical marijuana card program is voluntary. This program has helped many patients to find relief from their conditions. The patients are protected under the Senate Bill (SB 420).

However one must clearly understand that misusing provisions of Californian law and engaging in recreational use of marijuana can bring in felony charges. The marijuana card should not misused and one should refrain from using it to buy the drug for others. The pot discrepancies in California remain under the radar of federal investigators and if they violate provisions, they can be subjected to legal action.
