How to Participate in A Sacramento Medical Marijuana Program

posted in: | 0

It is very important for medical patients that they clearly understand the process and become familiar with the forms they’re expected to complete to be licensed by the health department in Sacramento so they can participate in all of Sacramento medical cannabis program.

Talk to your trusted Medical Doctor
 
First and foremost, medical patients need to request a recommendation letter from a medical doctor before they can participate in all medical cannabis programs. You may visit your preferred doctor’s office prepared with the following arguments:
 
You should clearly identify the symptoms you feel you can better manage with the use of this alternative medicine called medical cannabis. When you have identified it, you should also explain to the doctor why you would like to use cannabis (or want to use cannabis) to help you heal your health problems. It is a common nature of all medical doctors to understand your situation but they are oblige to know your reason behind it. Apart from that, medical doctors would also tell you the possible effect this alternative medicine could affect your welfare. To give you an idea, medical cannabis can be smoked, can be eaten, or can be used in some other form, but patients can use this cannabis to heal various health cases in limited grams only.
 
Doctors will always ask questions so be prepared to explain how you really need this cannabis to relive your health problems. If you have never used cannabis before, say the truth. If you have used it before, then better tell it to your doctor as well.
 
Another thing to consider is to make a list of medicines and therapies you have tried for your health problems, and identify which has worked and which has not worked. Doctors would ask this for sure so get ready your list and give it to him or her right away.
 
Completing the medical cannabis form
 
See to it that you know what kind of form you need to fill out when you have the recommendation letter already. If you are obtaining a medical ID card for the first time, fill out the form intended for first time ID cards, and so on for the renewal. Registry office provides medical cannabis application form for qualified patients.
 
But keep in mind that your application must be accompanied by two passport sized photographs, to be used on an identification card issued to applicants authorized to possess, as well as two valid ID’s with photos for identification purposes only.
 
Processing time
 
The application will vary depending on the nature of the applicant’s medical condition, and whether all of the necessary information has been received, but most of the time, it takes several weeks to process.

EnviroTextiles Hemp Products Listed with USDA Biopreferred Program

posted in: | 0

Glenwood Springs, CO (PRWEB) March 01, 2013

EnviroTextiles, LLC, a Colorado based Industrial hemp and natural fiber manufacturer, is pleased to announce that it has earned approval from the USDA BioPreferred® Program as the only Hemp products manufacturer to qualify for listing their products in the Federal Procurement Preferred category. To quote the USDA’s website: “The purpose of the USDA BioPreferred® program is to promote the increased purchase and use of biobased products. The program is expected to promote economic development, creating new jobs and providing new markets for farm commodities.”

Barbara Filippone, President of EnviroTextiles, LLC believes, “The addition of hemp to a U.S. approved government program is a historic achievement for bio-diverse agriculture, and is blazing the path to legalizing the growth of industrial hemp in the United States. Legalization would provide our farmers with a drought resistant, pesticide-free, multipurpose, and value-added crop. Hemp has over 25,000 uses including variations of Food, Fuel, Feed, and Fiber.”

“While critics fear that hemp will have little economic impact, the reality is clear. With investment in farming, manufacturing, and jobs training, the US could experience a large resurgence in virtually all industries – farming, manufacturing, and export to name a few. The reach of the industrial hemp industry has incredible potential, with the ability to introduce new raw materials that are already successfully used for wide ranging products across the world. Industrial hemp would open up new markets and expand existing markets while leaving a very small carbon footprint. “

“It should be noted that the US is one of the world’s largest consumers of hemp derived products. However, we are unable to grow hemp locally and in all States until legislation currently under way is passed. The question is not if industrial hemp will have a positive impact in the U.S. – the question is will we see the opportunity to grow and develop this commodity within our own borders.“

EnviroTextiles is a woman-owned industrial hemp and natural fiber manufacturing company based in Glenwood Springs, CO, and is the largest importer of hemp textiles in the U.S. Barbara Filippone, founder and president of EnviroTextiles, has created thousands of jobs across the globe in her 37 years of developments surrounding natural fiber production and product development. She has developed industry in India, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Mexico, South Korea, and China, with China presently providing hemp to EnviroTextiles for their products. Being a leading expert in processing and economic development, EnviroTextiles proudly sells their products in the U.S. and to over 70 countries worldwide.

EnviroTextiles presently has offices in the US, China, and Mexico, and focuses on natural fiber products and economic development in regions with commodity levels of various natural fibers. “Being one of the first companies to be USDA Bio-Preferred qualified and having products listed for Federal Procurement Preferred status, EnviroTextiles is leading the way for investment in bio-diversity, non-GMO farming, and job creation.”, Filippone stated.

Please also note, EnviroTextiles is excited to announce we celebrated our 12th year in business on February 15th, 2013. Thanks to all that have supported us over the years!
