Do I Qualify? 

Although cannabis can be a considered an alternative for many ailments, New Mexico state regulations and laws outline a list of approved medical conditions for medical providers to recommended cannabis treatment. Unfortunately, not all medical conditions would meet the qualifications for a   cannabis. New Patients must have a current medical assessment by their treating medical provider,  confirm their qualifying condition is chronic and debilitating. Canna Connection does offer full PTSD evaluations for those who may qualify under this medical condition, an additional assessment is required for this service if this is your interested service.
