Cannabis sativa is the oldest and most resourceful crop sown. In fact, sativa means 'useful' in Latin. Canvas is derived from "cannabis", the Latin word for "marijuana." Industrial hemp could supply most of mankind's fuel, fiber and food needs and will be the agent of transformation for our economy away from many toxic petrochemical products to nontoxic, agriculturally-based alternatives.
Cannabis sativa produces more fuel, fiber and food per land area cultivated than any other plant. Archaeologists agree that cannabis has been purposely cultivated for over 12,000 years and all archeaologists agree it is among the first few crops purposely cultivated by humans, and could well be the first. Cannabis flowers produce a medicine, sacrament and social drug that mimics newly discovered neurotransmiters, or brain chemicals.
For 3000 Years prior to 1842, marijuana and hashish extracts were the most widely-used medicines in the world.
Benjamin Franklin started one of America's first paper mills with cannabis, allowing a colonial press free from English control.
The U.S. Government distributed 400,000 pounds of cannabis seeds to American farmers in 1942 to aid the war effort
THCF TRIFOLD BROCHURE 2009 You can now download and print our 2009 Trifold Brochure containing valuable information that can help you or a loved one take the first step in becoming a qualified medical marijuana patient.
Our physicians require that each patient have current medical records that document the existence of one of the conditions for which medical marijuana is authorized under their state law. You must either obtain your medical records yourself (which may involve a fee) and bring them in to us, or you may authorize that your medical records be faxed or mailed to one of our offices. Please BE SURE to clarify with the doctor's office that you only need 2-3 visits of chart notes pertaining to your qualifying condition, NOT your entire medical record. Have them include any relevant x-ray or MRI reports (not actual film), and also YOUR name and phone number.
Since our doctors are consulting with patients solely about their qualification for medicinal cannabis, and can not act as a patient's primary physician, we require that all of our patients have at least one other current physician. What to Expect at Your Appointment
After checking in, we must copy your state identification card for our file, pull your medical records, and create our THCF medical file. You can expect to fill out some questionnaire forms whether you are a new or returning patient. There is a 20 minute orientation video to educate you about your state’s medical marijuana program, and then you will have time to ask a staff member any remaining questions you may have. What follows will be a non-invasive exam by an RN or NP, a meeting with our MD who will review your entire situation, make his determination, and fill out necessary forms. Once we both have copies of all necessary information and permit forms filled out, you will be ready to go!
Please call our office for further information or to schedule an appointment.
