It can alleviate pains, help with insomnia, glaucoma, epilepsy, and perhaps even PTSD. More and more states are legalizing the use of medical marijuana and in Missouri, it was introduced in 2018.
To obtain your medical marijuana card online you will need to have a consultation with a doctor, for example, via video chat and if they give you their approval you can begin the necessary state paperwork. You’ll have to prove your Missouri residency by presenting some kind of appropriate documentation. Then, there’s the application fee to be paid to the Missouri Medical Marijuana Authority for review. If successful you will receive instructions on how to access the system and get a digital copy of your card that you can then take to a dispensary.

The Circadian Cycle
Our digital age is intrinsically linked with artificial intelligence. We now have limitless opportunities and possibilities at our fingertips. However, we cannot forget the artificial element of our technological advances as we rely heavily upon electronics and are often glued to our screens. This has meant that our routines can be off-kilter. This circadian trend sees a return to a more biologically and cyclically driven daily pattern. It calls for us to work by day with the natural light and switch off once it turns dark. To eat at the same points each day and establish routines for exercise and leisure. It’s really all about going back to basics and trusting in nature to power our systems.
