What are the Qualifying Conditions in Maine?
It used to be that Maine had a limited list of conditions that qualified for medical marijuana. Then in December 2018, a new Maine law went into effect that let healthcare providers recommend medical marijuana to patients for any medical condition the provider deemed suitable, including difficulty sleeping, anxiety, depression, and more. Here is a list of common conditions that qualify people for medical marijuana treatment:
- Difficulty sleeping
- Hepatitis C
- Crohn’s Disease
- Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
- Nail-Patella Syndrome
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Cachexia or Wasting Syndrome
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Severe and persistent muscle spasms including Multiple Sclerosis
- Seizures including Epilepsy
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
I have several of the qualifying conditions. Does that mean that I'll be getting my med card?
If the provider believes that you meet the legal requirements for a medical marijuana recommendation, then you will very likely be recommended.
