Medical Marijuana Q & A

What is medical marijuana?

Medical marijuana is a type of marijuana that treats an array of medical issues, including autism, seizure disorders, and many other chronic conditions. It can give you a better quality of life, sometimes allowing you to avoid medications or invasive surgery.

Medical marijuana is available in a variety of different forms, including oils, pills, liquids, dried leaves, powders, and edibles. Your provider lets you know which form of marijuana and dosage to take.

What can medical marijuana treat?

Your psychiatrist may suggest you use medical marijuana if you struggle with one or more of the following conditions:

  • Autism
  • Epilepsy
  • Seizure disorders
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Spasticity
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
  • Terminal cancer
  • Incurable neurodegenerative diseases

Medical marijuana could be the right solution for you based on your medical history, overall health, lifestyle, preferences, and whether or not other treatments have worked.

Is medical marijuana right for me?

To find out if you need medical marijuana for a health condition, your provider discusses your symptoms and medical history. They may also complete a psychiatric assessment by asking you a series of questions about your emotions. 

Your provider could recommend you undergo blood tests, pharmacogenomic (DNA) testing, and other diagnostic tests to detect or rule out specific medical issues.

What should I expect during medical marijuana treatment?

Providers at Compassionate Psychiatric Services personalize each treatment to optimize health outcomes. Take medical marijuana exactly as directed by your provider to minimize unpleasant symptoms.

As part of a comprehensive treatment plan, your provider could suggest you try the following solutions in place of, or in addition to, medical marijuana:

  • Healthy lifestyle changes
  • Oral medication
  • Psychotherapy (talk therapy)
  • Injections

Get regular exercise, eat nutritious foods, get plenty of sleep, and keep your stress levels low. Don't smoke or drink excessive amounts of alcohol. 

Follow your health treatment plan exactly as directed by your specialist to help you feel better physically and mentally while preventing negative medication interactions with medical marijuana.
