What is an evaluation for medical marijuana?

McLean Cares offers comprehensive evaluations for medical marijuana that meet the state of Georgia’s medical marijuana law requirements.

Georgia allows qualified individuals to legally possess up to 20 fluid ounces of low tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) oil to treat chronic pain and certain medical conditions. THC comes from the cannabis plant and offers health benefits for people living with chronic illness and pain.

Under the medical marijuana laws, you must undergo an evaluation for medical marijuana before receiving approval from the state to use THC in your treatment legally.

Am I a candidate for medical marijuana?

You might be a candidate for medical marijuana if you have one or more diseases that qualify under Georgia’s regulations, such as:

  • Cancer
  • Seizures
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Peripheral neuropathy

Typically, your condition must be severe or end-stage to qualify for medical marijuana.

McLean Cares offers on-site diagnostic technologies to confirm your condition and assess its severity. They also evaluate your treatment history to determine if you might benefit from using low THC oil.

Throughout your treatment with medical marijuana, your provider monitors your health and your success in using THC oil to relieve pain and other symptoms of your condition.

When should I schedule an evaluation for medical marijuana?

You should schedule an evaluation for medical marijuana at McLean Cares if you’re a resident of Georgia and interested in using low THC oil in your treatment for a chronic health condition.

It takes time for your application to process. After completing your evaluation, the team completes two forms and submits them electronically to the Georgia Department of Public Health. Once the health department reviews your application, they contact you to pick up your Low THC Registry Card at the nearest public health office.

Your registry card is valid for two years from the issue date. After it expires, you need to schedule a new evaluation for a medical marijuana appointment at McLean Cares to requalify for the program.
