Medical Marijuana Explained

As Medical Marijuana laws are passing in more and more states, including New York, people are becoming more educated on how it can be used to address pain, disease and numerous health challenges. Medical Marijuana can legally be used to treat the following conditions:

  • Cancer
  • HIV infection or AIDS
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  • Parkinson's disease
  • Multiple Sclerosis 
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Epilepsy
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Neuropathy
  • Huntington's disease

Natural Pain Solutions in East Northport, New York was one of the first medical practices to become recognized by the state of New York to specialize in Medical Marijuana treatment. Led by Dr. Amir Herman, Natural Pain Solutions issues marijuana certifications to patients with qualifying conditions. After receiving a marijuana certification, a patient is able to buy marijuana from an authorized medical marijuana seller called a dispensary.

How does it work?

Medical Marijuana works with and enhances your body’s natural chemicals that affect pain, inflammation, seizure threshold, appetite, digestion and mood.

Many patients that rely on opiates to manage pain become dependent on their medication and find that the intended solution becomes a devastating problem. Medical Marijuana is also a safer alternative to opiates as an effective treatment for pain management.

Medical Marijuana in New York State may be:

  • Inhaled via Vaporized (heated until active ingredients are released, but no smoke is formed)
  • Ingested as a liquid or a capsule
  • Placed under the tongue for direct absorption

If you or someone you know is suffering from a condition that could be helped by Medical Marijuana, contact Natural Pain Solutions today at 631-486-7698. Dr. Herman and his team will compassionately and confidentially review the patient’s medical history and quickly get them on the path to relief.
