What Is Medical Cannabis?

Medical cannabis is a type of herbal medicine that comes from the plant Cannabis sativa. Dr. Arturo Portales is legally authorized to recommend the use of medical cannabis to manage a variety of medical conditions and symptoms. Upon his recommendation and under Proposition 215, patients in Tustin, CA are able to apply for a medical marijuana ID card, which is valid for up to one year and purchase cannabis from dispensaries. Dr. Portales is highly knowledgeable about the laws regarding medical cannabis and can answer any questions you have about this form of treatment. If you would like to find out if medical cannabis may be beneficial for you, contact OC Medical Tustin to schedule an appointment.

How Does Medical Cannabis Work?

There are certain health conditions covered under the California Compassionate Use Act, also known as Proposition 215, that can be treated with medical cannabis, including but not limited to arthritis, cancer, chronic pain, migraines, nausea, seizures, and for other long-term symptoms that may be severely impacting your physical or mental health. Dr. Portales will go over your concerns one-on-one with you to determine if you may be a qualifying candidate for medical cannabis. If you qualify, there are a few different ways it can be administered, such as through consuming edibles or smoking. Since applying for a medical marijuana ID card is not mandatory, we do offer a signed document from Dr. Portales that should be accepted at dispensaries when you go to purchase medical cannabis.

OC Medical just got the NuEra for fat burning and it is no joke. I had some loose skin after a surgery and Rachel knew exactly what I needed. I did the Accufit with the NuEra and the results are night and day after one session. The NuEra was so comfortable and tightened the skin and got rid of fat while the Accufit toned. I’m so happy with service here and the staff is really incredible. They have all your beauty and esthetic needs!
