Is Medical Marijuana Right for Me?

Medical Marijuana Doctor Issuing Recommendations for Patients Near Tampa, St. Petersburg and All of Florida

Share:

Millions of people use medical marijuana to alleviate unpleasant symptoms, feel better, and improve their quality of life. However, that doesn’t mean it’s right for everyone. These questions can help you learn about your eligibility for MMJ in Florida. 

Of course, nothing replaces a visit to AMRX. An evaluation with a state-licensed physician is the only way to find out if medical marijuana is an appropriate treatment for you.

 

Do You Have a Qualifying Medical Condition?

There are several requirements to become a medical marijuana patient. The first is that you must be diagnosed with a qualifying medical condition. Qualifying medical conditions include:

  • Cancer
  • Epilepsy
  • Glaucoma
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)

Florida also permits licensed doctors to issue medical marijuana recommendations for patients who have medical conditions comparable to these diseases, terminal conditions, and, in some cases, chronic nonmalignant pain. Talk to our physicians to see where you stand.

Are You Looking for Relief From The Following Symptoms? 

While medical marijuana may be best known for its relaxing properties, it has numerous other health benefits. If you’re dealing with any of the following symptoms, cannabis may provide relief:

  • Pain
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Lack of appetite
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Inflammation
  • Muscle spasms  

Do You Want to Reduce Your Dependence on Opioids? 

Prescription painkillers and opiate drugs have dangerous side effects. That may explain why a growing number of patients are looking for a natural alternative — and finding it in MMJ.

No one has ever died from a cannabis overdose. Moreover, increasing cannabis use and medical marijuana legalization may correlate with a growing decline in opioid misuse.
