Medical Cannabis Certifications Q & A

How do I get my medical cannabis certification in Illinois?

The team at 1Body1Life helps you with each step while you’re obtaining your cannabis certification. If you have a long-standing chronic condition, bring your medical records to your evaluation. This helps your doctor evaluate your symptoms to determine if medical cannabis is right for you.

Bringing prior medical records can also expedite your paperwork process because your doctor can immediately look through to determine if you qualify for medical cannabis. Don’t worry if you don’t have your medical records, though. The doctors and nurses at 1Body1Life can order any necessary tests — like blood work or X-rays — to make a diagnosis and find the proper treatment.

Once you’re approved for medical cannabis, your doctor fills out the paperwork required by the Illinois Department of Public Health. After your paperwork is approved, you’re issued a medical cannabis registry identification card.

Which conditions qualify for medical cannabis certification?

The Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act requires patients to be diagnosed with a debilitating condition to be eligible for cannabis certification. Dozens of specific conditions may qualify, some of which include:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis and severe fibromyalgia
  • Crohn’s disease and lupus
  • Muscular dystrophy and Parkinson’s disease
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Glaucoma and cancer

Your dedicated physician at 1Body1Life can let you know if your ailment qualifies or diagnose you if you’re having certain symptoms.

Where can I get medical cannabis after I’m certified?

1Body1Life does not dispense medical cannabis. The doctors at 1Body1Life provide you with a certification of qualifying condition to receive medical cannabis. When the state approves your certification, the team can guide you as to where to obtain your medical cannabis and what you should get.
