Most likely you will qualify for a card but you need a consultation with one of our doctors in order to obtain a card. Medical marijuana works for many different issues and as a physician working for helloMD, I often find many reasons for patients to use medical cannabis when the patient was not aware that Cannabis could actually help.

Yes, you should be able to get a card for those problems since cannabis would work well especially the CBD or cannabidiol would tend to get you out of pain and calm anxiety and depression so you can start moving forward with your life and health.

Consider an appointment for an evaluation and to speak with a knowledgeable physician about cannabis use to resolve your problems.
