Visitors from all over the world have come to Jamaica for many decades to indulge in medical and recreational benefits of Jamaican ganja. In July 2016, Jamaica entered the medical cannabis industry and now permits visitors to Jamaica to purchase medical cannabis from licensed dispensaries locally during their visit to Jamaica once they purchase a permit.
A permit for persons over the age of 18 years will be issued if you produce a voluntary declaration signed by you, or any other satisfactory evidence, such as a medic al card, that your use of ganja is for medical or therapeutic purposes. The permit grants holder to purchase and possess no more than 2 oz (56 gm) at a time, available from licensed medical dispensaries.
Cannabis is known to increase appetite and reduce nausea and vomiting. Hence it can be used to help treat ailments that involve loss of appetite and/or weight loss. Patients suffering from cancer, anorexia or bulimia may benefit from the use of medical cannabis.
