REQUESTING UP TO 15 PLANTS PER PATIENT

At the bottom of your authorization/recommendation form , as of July 24, 2015, there is a space for the Doctor (that writes your recommendation) to authorize patients for up to 15 plants. WE DO NOT WRITE A PLANT NUMBER IN THE SPACE PROVIDED FOR PATIENTS WHO WILL RECEIVE THE 4-6 PLANT LIMIT, as it is illegal for us to do so.  If the space at the bottom say’s “N/A”, you will have the right to grow 4 plants unless you register with the WA ST DOH, they will increase your plant count to 6 plants and will issue you a laminated card with that number listed. If you are a patient that needs more than the 6 plants that is the standard limit for a registered patient,  you must request this from your authorizing doctor, at the time of your appointment.   You can schedule your appointments to do so immediately.  Registration begins JULY 1, 2016 .  You MUST REGISTER if given permission to grow more than 6 plants. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO REGISTER , if you stay withing the 4 PLANTS, 6 OUNCE of dry usable medicine. Our company has it’s own policy to design a treatment plan with you to decide how many plants the doctor will recommend.  You may call 888 204 1260 to receive more information. Please review the article in our blog for a better understanding of how the registry will be implemented and enforced. What your rights as a non registered patient are compared to a registered patient.  Please understand REGISTRY is NOT REQUIRED, for patients that grow 4 plants and 6 ounces...

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Frequently asked questions: “I don’t trust medical doctors so I haven’t been in to one for years. What do I do?” We are glad to review records for naturopathic doctors, DO’s, ODs, acupuncturists and chiropractors if you have been seeing one instead of a medical doctor. If you haven’t been to any healthcare provider you will need to find a care provider and begin treatment with them before you come see us. One appointment is not enough to establish care with them. We need to see that you have tried other treatments that were not successful so it requires multiple appointments. Let us know if you want a referral to a doctor you can have an honest conversation about cannabis with. ”I used to see a doctor but I haven’t in several years. I do have my condition documented in older records and it will never go away. Why do I need new records?” WA state law requires that you are in active treatment for your qualifying condition. We need new records to show who your doctor is and that you have seen them in the past year. You’ll need to see them at least once a year. “I see my doctor regularly for other problems but haven’t mentioned that I was in pain because I’ve just been using cannabis and it works!” We’re glad you have found a treatment that works for you, but WA state law requires that we have records showing that you’ve been in pain. Be sure to mention your pain to your doctor at every appointment so it is well-documented. “I’ve had a cannabis...

HOW TO UPDATE YOUR MEDICAL FILE WITH US

How to update your medical file- for patients that need additional information With the changes in WA state law, cannabis patients need to be able to prove current treatment of their qualifying condition. We understand that many conditions “will never go away” and that you may find seeking care futile in some cases but we must follow the state’s recommended guidelines to protect patients and our physicians. Following guidelines will allow us to continue providing care. You may have noticed that many facilities that used to offer cannabis authorizations no longer do so because of the stringent new guidelines. For chronic/intractable pain and many other conditions it is also necessary to document what treatments you have tried in the past. It’s ideal to do so through copies of your medical chart, labs and imaging reports, although we can also accept letters from your physician that confirm your diagnosis- ideal if they’d like to allow cannabis use for you but cannot authorize for various reasons. We can use records from all the health care providers you have seen: MD, ND, LAc, LMHC, Psy, DO, DC, LMT, PT are a few of the abbreviations you’ll find after these health care provider’s names. If you have medical records of your qualifying condition that are more than one year old, you’ll need to update your medical record. You can return to your physician to let them know you are still experiencing symptoms so that they are properly documented. If you don’t have a current physician, you’ll need to find one. There are many reasons it is best to have a current health care...

EDUCATION IS KEY TO YOUR SAFETY PATIENTS BEWARE Many patients wonder why we ask them to bring current medical records & to be seen in person at the clinic by a doctor. It is because we follow the law 100%.

B: in Washington state you must prove that you have tried traditional methods of treatment before you can qualify for medical cannabis. C: PTSD is the only exception, diagnosis only needed We are not your primary care doctor therefore we must acquire the records that prove these conditions. 3) mailing out a renewal or new license is illegal. 4) if you do not follow the law for medical cannabis authorizations your authorization is not valid. This means you are at risk as a patient with an illegal authorization or recommendation from a doctor. 5) it is currently a FELONY to grow cannabis in Washington state UNLESS you are a medical marijuana...
