MEDICAL MARIJUANA TREATMENT
At Advanced Pain Medical Center, we believe that all viable treatment avenues should be explored. This includes considering the use of medical marijuana (medical cannabis) in certain treatment scenarios. We have found great success utilizing this innovative treatment option.
A report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that about 50 million Americans have chronic pain. Approximately 20 million of them suffer from high-impact chronic pain, which frequently limits work or life activities.
Medical Marijuana Gainesville Introduction
The number of opiate prescriptions in the US is staggering. Doctors and researchers are exploring alternative treatment options for pain, including medical cannabis. We believe that marijuana, in doses that allow less pain and more function, is the future of medicine. It is not about getting high; it is about getting better.
For each patient, we individualize the route and strength of cannabis that matches your needs in an effort to maximize results, minimize side effects, and increase your function.
If you have an appointment to discuss medical marijuana treatment, please download, print, and complete the Medical Marijuana Consent Form.
All you need to know about medical marijuana treatment Gainesville, Fl:
“I was on high-dose fentanyl (100 mcg), as well as two other opiate medications. After six months of using medical marijuana, I could reduce my intake to just 12 mcg of fentanyl and stop taking the other two opiates altogether. I highly recommend it. It has done wonders for me. My mind is clear. I can do more work. No opiate fog. Overall, I feel much better!”
QUALIFYING CONDITIONS FOR MEDICAL CANNABIS USE
In order to qualify for medical marijuana order, patients must have a diagnosed condition that is on their state’s list of qualifying medical marijuana conditions.
Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV+)
Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS)
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS)
Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Chronic, Nonmalignant Pain*
Medical conditions of the same kind or class as, or comparable to, those listed
*Chronic, nonmalignant pain is considered a qualifying condition if the pain is caused by another qualifying medical condition or originates from a qualifying medical condition and persists beyond the usual course of that qualifying medical condition.
**Terminal Illness means a progressive disease that causes significant functional impairment. It’s not considered by a treating physician to be reversible without the administration of life-sustaining procedures. What’s more, it will result in death within 1 year after the diagnosis if the condition runs its normal course.
Medical cannabis is still a schedule 1 substance, as the Federal Government reaffirmed this on August 11, 2016. (Click for more information). So, to the Federal Government, there is no such thing as “medical” marijuana. It either is marijuana or it is not.
