How to get a doctor’s recommendation for medical marijuana in California.

Maybe you’ve never tried marijuana before, but now you have a condition that’s leading you to seek a doctor’s recommendation for medical marijuana. You might be feeling a little hesitant—after all, cannabis has gotten an unfair reputation, and all that some people have learned is “all pot is bad.”

But medical marijuana has proven benefits for health and well-being. It is now legal in California for not-for-profit collectives and cooperatives to grow and sell marijuana for medicinal purposes.

Find a doctor.
To become a legal medical marijuana patient, you need a valid doctor’s recommendation. You can find a list of recommended doctors on our website. We strongly recommend Dr. Rabe of Centric Wellness. His office, conveniently located near Balboa Park, offers a comfortable setting with knowledgeable, friendly staff. If you need transportation to Dr. Rabe’s office, please give one of our service consultants a call, and they’ll be glad to arrange a ride for you.

Your doctor can prescribe medical marijuana treatment to relieve problems related to these conditions: AIDS, anorexia, arthritis, cachexia, cancer, chronic pain, glaucoma, migraines, persistent muscle spasms, seizures, severe nausea, and other serious chronic or persistent medical symptoms.

Once you have your doctor’s recommendation, go to the Become a Member page and complete your application. You’ll be notified by your preferred method of contact as soon as your application has been verified.

Once verified, our service consultant will ask you about your medicating habits and suggest products that best fit your needs and budget. We can usually deliver your order within a few hours.

Your privacy is protected by law.
Any conversations between you and your doctor are confidential under HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act). The law is on your side when it comes to the privacy of your medical records, but please be aware that:

  • Employers are not required to accommodate on-the-job consumption.
  • Employers may still require drug screening.
  • You should not drive after medicating—you could get a DUI.


Obtaining medical marijuana should be a private, safe, and comfortable experience.
The law recognizes the legitimate need to use medical marijuana. It is our mission to help you obtain needed recommendations and provide you with the medical marijuana product that will best help with your condition.
