The United States has come quite a long way when it comes to medical cannabis. There are now 30 states, plus Washington D.C., that have some sort of state regulated MMJ program. But access to medical cannabis varies from place to place. Some states make it very easy to obtain a medical marijuana prescription, while others have such restrictive programs that only a very small population of patients have access to CBD-only products.

Each state MMJ program comes with a list of qualifying conditions, or health issues that, according to the government, cannabis has shown promise in treating. Check out the list below for a full run down on each state’s qualifying conditions. And if you are a medical cannabis patient in Colorado, Buddy Boy’s medical dispensaries can provide you the best medicine in the state. Our staff will support you on your journey to feeling better.
