Did you know that on November 5th, 1996, Proposition 215, also known as the Compassionate Use Act, was voted into California Law? This Law permits California residents to see a California licensed, knowledgeable physician that can evaluate each individual’s needs and, if they see fit, provide patients with a Recommendation that allows for the possession and cultivation of medical marijuana. Any person who is over the age of 18, and has been previously diagnosed with a qualifying medical condition, has the right in this state to seek alternative treatment in the form of medical cannabis. Our mission at Cal Med 421 is to provide our current and future patient base with up to date information and education.

While medical marijuana was once a taboo, highly misunderstood topic, one can see that the general consensus on the subject has slowly begun to change. As holistic, patient driven healthcare continues to move to the forefront of many people’s choices in regards to the prevention and treatment of many, many conditions, it only makes sense that medical marijuana be a viable, available option. As one delves more deeply into cannabis research, there is evidence that the cannabis plant is not only beneficial in terms of a medicine, but also as a dense nutritional supplement. While the medicinal form requires smaller doses, and is more readily accessible, to utilize the plant on a nutritional level, an extremely higher quantity is needed. Until growing rights are increased and medical restrictions are lifted, the general public will not have the ability to benefit from what raw cannabis can provide, because they simply cannot grow enough for themselves and their families. In this blog, many topics related cannabis from general health to symptom treatment as well as local, regional and national regulations will be discussed. If you have a topic you would like to see or a question you would like answered, please send an […]
You hear about people getting cancer every day. Sometimes it’s a co-worker, sometimes it’s the parent of a friend, and in really heart wrenching circumstances, it might be a child. The question that I have asked myself many times is “what would I do if it were my parent, what would I do if it were my wife, what would I do if it were my child?” It’s a frightening scenario to push your imagination into, but an important one, because there is so much information out there and even more misinformation. If a health crisis arises, I want to be informed enough to work with doctors and health practitioners to devise a plan. Not simply succumb to the chemo, surgery route. And taking that one step further, why isn’t there a health team teaching my family and I how to prevent cancer in the first place? In this technologically advanced world, why is preventative health care still in the dark ages? The health care system in this country, or what is being disguised as a health care system, is often so confusing, so difficult to navigate, and in many instances, fails people who turn to it for help. Many […]
By Wellness Jedi. There is a synthetic version of marijuana, and it is called Marinol. It is the drug companies’ answer to their desire, but inability, to sell marijuana. But Spice has absolutely no connection to the cannabis plant or Marinol. So why do reporters and others continue to make the correlation between the highly processed, chemical mashup that is Spice, and what we all know as the natural substance, marijuana? Your guess is as good as mine. But maybe my guess may be better. #1. Marijuana sells. More and more people are learning of its healing and therapeutic properties. Many states have medical laws in place allowing patients to use cannabis for medical conditions and the symptoms associated with many disease. And a couple of states have passed recreational laws. #2. Marijuana has a reputation for being safe. This correlation is dangerous because it sends the public, including children and teens, mixed and blatantly wrong messages about the 2 substances. Spice is highly dangerous and unpredictable. Because manufacturers are constantly changing the make-up of what is in Spice in order to avoid prosecution and continuing manufacturing it, there is no telling what is in one batch or the next.
