Although California has legalized the recreational use of cannabis, access to cannabis products exceeding 100 mg requires a physician’s approval.

Federal law strictly limits what information a physician may provide regarding the medicinal use of cannabis.    Practitioners are needed to provide information regarding dosage, titration, formulas and methods of ingestion.

Medical Cannabis Practitioners are also needed to assist Health Care Facility (HCF) Licensees that elect to provide medicinal cannabis products under the “Retail License Exemption” granted to HCF Licensees under the SB 94 Regulations.
