In order to receive full legal protections of the New Mexico Medical Cannabis Program, a qualified patient or a primary caregiver must obtain a registry identification card, also referred to as a medical cannabis card, from the New Mexico Department of Health (DOH).
In order to get your medical cannabis card you must have medical records which diagnose your ailment. If you do not have your medical records we can help obtain them for you. Or if you have not been diagnosed yet we can provide a medical cannabis-friendly doctor to diagnose you.
In addition to physical health conditions the State of New Mexico also allows the use of medical marijuana to alleviate mental health conditions such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). PTSD is a serious potentially debilitating condition that can occur in people who have experienced or witnessed a natural disaster, serious accident, terrorist incident, sudden death of a loved one, war, violent personal assault such as rape, or other life-threatening events.
Trauma survivors who have PTSD may have trouble with their close family relationships or friendships. Their symptoms can cause problems with trust, closeness, communication, and problem solving, which may affect the way the survivor acts with others. In turn, the way a loved one responds to him or her affects the trauma survivor. A circular pattern may develop that could harm relationships.
In order to get your medical marijuana card for PTSD you must be evaluated by a psychiatrist or prescribing psychologist . Our doctors can provide you with all the necessary paperwork and medical cannabis certification. If you would like to be evaluated by one of our medical cannabis-friendly doctors in order to obtain your medical cannabis card please call our office to schedule an appointment.
