A few months ago, I got a medical marijuana card. I was struggling with my ADHD, and I didn’t yet have access to medications for it, and I was struggling with anxiety more being in quarantine. The medical marijuana has helped me a ton, so if it is available in your state, I’d look into it as an option for you. Here are 4 benefits and reasons why getting your medical marijuana card might be a good idea for you!

The dispensaries work with you!

Medical marijuana is holistic!

The discounts offset the cost of getting the card.

There are a ton of options.

Medical marijuana is a new and developing field of medicine, and there is a long way to go until it is accessible to everyone. The benefits are wonderful though, especially for my mental health problems. If you are struggling, maybe consider looking into it! Of course, it isn’t a replacement for other medicines, but it might help! You never know!
