Medical Marijuana Q & A

What is medical marijuana?

Medical marijuana is marijuana that a physician prescribes with your specific needs in mind. 

The board-certified pain management and anesthesiology specialists at AABP Integrative Pain Care offer medical marijuana along with lifestyle guidance, conservative care, and advanced interventional procedures.

When might I need medical marijuana?

As of 2022, the state of New York allows medical practitioners to prescribe medical marijuana for any reason they see fit. Medical marijuana can be particularly effective for people who struggle with chronic pain.

Back pain, neck pain, diabetic neuropathy, chronic regional pain syndrome, and many other conditions can cause debilitating pain if untreated. The medical marijuana program at AABP Integrative Pain Care can work both on its own and in combination with other integrative pain management treatments to help you cope with chronic pain and all of its consequences. 

Is medical marijuana safe?

Medical marijuana is safe and effective when used as directed by the AABP Integrative Pain Care team. It usually works best when you use other methods of pain management at the same time.

For example, the team may recommend physical therapy, interventional pain management procedures, and other treatment methods to help you maximize your results and feel your best. 

When you have chronic pain, medical marijuana can help you to manage it so you can live your life normally.

How does marijuana legalization affect medical marijuana?

While the state of New York recently legalized marijuana for adults over the age of 21, the new marijuana laws rely upon self-regulation and an intimate knowledge of your personal needs. For this reason, the team at AABP Integrative Pain Care continues to offer their medical marijuana program.

Chronic pain is a highly complex condition with many different contributing factors. Because of this, it’s hard to know exactly how much marijuana you need, which type of marijuana will work best for your condition, how often to use marijuana, and other specific factors that can greatly impact its effectiveness.

Medical marijuana gives you the peace of mind you need. You’ll know, beyond a doubt, that you’re using marijuana safely and effectively, based upon your own unique medical needs.
