Medical Marijuana Q & A

What is medical marijuana?

Medical marijuana is being used more frequently in the treatment of chronic health conditions, especially those that are resistant to medications and other conservative therapies.

This treatment option is most often recommended for controlling chronic pain, especially in people who want to avoid addictive narcotics or aren’t able to tolerate certain medications.

In Florida, underlying medical conditions that may qualify you for a medical marijuana card include but aren’t limited to:

  • Cancer
  • Nausea
  • Seizures
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Parkinson’s disease

Medical marijuana may also be recommended for treating certain mental health conditions, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

How do I get a medical marijuana card?

The first part of qualifying for a medical marijuana card requires scheduling a health evaluation with Dr. Soriano. This evaluation allows him to review your medical history and your existing symptoms to determine if medical marijuana is the right therapy for you.

If Dr. Soriano determines you’re eligible for medical marijuana therapy, you need to register with the State of Florida to receive the card that allows you to fill your prescriptions.

It can take several weeks to receive your card in the mail, but once you have your identification, you can bring it and the prescription you receive from Dr. Soriano to a state-approved dispensary.

What are the benefits of medical marijuana?

Medical marijuana has been beneficial for many suffering from chronic symptoms of underlying health conditions, including pain, that aren’t relieved with traditional medications and therapies.

The use of medical marijuana for treating chronic pain and disease can help you avoid dependence on addictive opioid medications. Marijuana may also be beneficial for long-term use in controlling pain, which isn’t possible with opioids and other addictive medications.

Based on your specific health issues, Dr. Soriano can determine if medical marijuana is an appropriate treatment option, especially if other therapies have failed. He provides comprehensive guidance and continued care to ensure your treatment with medical marijuana is effective and safe for your overall health and wellness.
