What medical conditions qualify for marijuana treatment in California?

California passed the Compassionate Use Act, also known as Prop 215, in 1996.

Prop 215 provides legal protections to seriously ill patients who have a doctor’s recommendation to use marijuana for medical purposes, according to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). The measure also provides protections to physicians and primary caregivers who assist qualified patients.

The following 12+ conditions qualify for medical marijuana treatment in California:

  1. AIDS
  2. Anorexia
  3. Arthritis
  4. Seizures
  5. Cancer
  6. Chronic Pain
  7. Glaucoma
  8. Migraine
  9. Persistent Muscle Spasms
  10. Cachexia (wasting syndrome)
  11. Severe Nausea
  12. Chronic and Persistent Medical Conditions
