Mama's Clinics

At MAMA clinics, you will find a comfortable and professional atmosphere in which to learn about Cannabis medicine, harm reduction, and the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program.  MAMA's knowledgeable staff is here to help those with a diagnosed, qualifying medical condition get through the difficult process of registering with the OMMP.  

CLINICAL SERVICES

In Oregon, where MAMA is based, the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) allows registered patients to use marijuana for many conditions including chronic pain, severe nausea, and persistent muscle spasms.  Oregon's program is supported entirely by patient fees. Patients may opt to grow their own medicine, or can get another person to grow for them. They may also designate someone over 18, called a caregiver, to help manage their supply of medicine. In March 2014 Medical Marijuana Facilities opened where a patient could purchase cannabis and cannabis products. On October 1, 2015 Medical Marijuana Facilities can choose to allow anyone 21 and over to purchase a limited amount of cannabis flower, starts and seeds.

MAMA has been involved with the medical marijuana program since its beginning in 1998.  We have been leading the way ever since with our award winning approach to drug education and a clinic experience second to none.  MAMA's strict management of your medical documents and information follows HIPAA's guidelines for privacy and security.

At the MAMA clinic 

  •  Patients get assistance gathering necessary medical records.

  •  Patients meet with a doctor, who reviews the medical records and performs a physical examination.  If all records are in order and the doctor agrees that Cannabis may help, the doctor will sign the patient's Attending Physician Statement and forms to include with the OMMP registration application.

  •  MAMA staff will guide patients through the registration process and will provide help to understand the intricacies of the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program.

  •  Patients will be provided information from the OMMP regarding the law, and have explained to them harm reduction in the use of cannabis, including alternatives to smoking and how cannabis may interact with other medicines.

MAMA's Clinic Fees for new patients are $220.00 & returning MAMA patients fees are $205.00.

Medical Marijuana Questions and Answers

The OMMP rule changes are occurring quickly and piecemeal, but we are trying our best to keep up. The OMMP website is constantly being updated and we encourage people to check it frequently.

How do I become a registered patient?


Who can use medical marijuana in Oregon?

People who have been diagnosed by a doctor (MD or DO) with one of the Debilitating medical conditions: Cancer, Glaucoma, HIV/AIDS, A degenerative or pervasive neurological condition, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), or treatment for any of these conditions: Cachexia (wasting syndrome), Severe Pain, Severe Nausea, Seizures, not limited to Epilepsy; or Persistent Muscle Spasms, not limited to Multiple Sclerosis.

An MD or DO must also say that marijuana may help with the patient's condition, and some doctors are not willing or able to do so. At the MAMA clinic, we help patients gather their medical records. Our doctor reviews them and examines the patient, and, if appropriate, signs the Attending Physician's Statement.

People with duel residency (Oregon and another state) may register in Oregon, if they have been diagnosed by a doctor (MD or DO) with one of the qualifying conditions.


What does Oregon law allow a registered patient to do? 

Under the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program, registered patients can use marijuana, and grow it or arrange to have a person grow it for them. A patient may store (possess) up to 24 ounces of dried plant material. Patients can give marijuana to other patients and be reimbursed for their expenses and time. A patient may possess a maximum of 6 mature plants (those in bud) and any number that have no flowers.

Mature - Any plant that is in bud is considered mature.

Starts and seedlings - Plants that have no buds or flowers, are not mature.

Patients, who are not able to grow for themselves, can name a grower (person responsible for the grow site) to grow for them. They may also designate someone over 18, called a caregiver, to manage their supply of medicine.

How do I make changes?

  • Send a Change Request Form to the OMMP when changes are made, such as BEFORE you move plants to a new grow site. A patient who is under 18 years old must have the consent of a parent or legal guardian to enter the program, and the parent or legal guardian must agree to act as the patient's caregiver.


    How do I register as an Oregon Medical Marijuana patient?

    To register with the Oregon Medical Marijuana Program, a patient must apply to the program, and support the application with an "attending physician's statement" - stating that the patient has the qualifying condition and that marijuana may help. This clinic paperwork must be sent along with the OMMP application. The patient must also include appropriate identification and a check or money order for the yearly registration fee. Here are some links to help you through the process:

    Patients may opt to buy their medicine from a Medical Marijuana Facility, grow their own medicine, or can get another person to grow for them. They may also designate someone, called a caregiver, to help manage their supply of medicine. On October 1, 2015 Medical Marijuana Facilities can choose to allow anyone 21 and over to purchase a limited amount of cannabis flower, small plants and seeds.
