Do you suffer from chronic pain, cancer, glaucoma, HIV or AIDS, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), neuropathy, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, or another debilitating condition? If you are suffering from one of these conditions and are looking for an alternative to prescription pain medication, you may be eligible for medical marijuana.
In New York, medical marijuana, also known as cannabis, can be used for pain management for patients suffering from specific health conditions. The state of New York has approved medical marijuana to be dispensed in 30-day supplies in liquid, capsule, or oil form. Oil forms can be administered with an inhaler or through vaporization. At New Concepts Medical, we believe in both medical and holistic approaches to treating pain and offer medical marijuana for pain management to patients suffering from chronic pain or other debilitating conditions.

How is medical marijuana used for pain management?
The marijuana plant contains active components called cannabinoids that can be used to relieve pain and treat specific medical conditions. The two main cannabinoids being studied for medical purposes are THC and CBD. THC is the most well-known cannabinoid and can be used to increase appetite, reduce nausea, and may decrease chronic pain, muscle control problems, and inflammation. CBD can be useful in controlling epileptic seizures and reducing pain and inflammation and does not affect the mind or produce the “high” sensation associated with THC. When used appropriately, medical marijuana may offer relief to patients suffering from chronic pain and other debilitating conditions. It is important to follow your recommended treatment plan when using medical marijuana for pain management.
