What Kind of Health Conditions Qualify for Legalized Medical Cannabis?

For chronic health conditions, patients are looking for natural alternatives to pharmaceutical prescriptions, including NSAIDs and opioids. The side-effects of conventional medications and some of the inherent health risks of pain medications can exacerbate certain health problems for some patients. That is why medical marijuana therapeutic treatments have been legalized in both the State of New Jersey, and in Pennsylvania.

Every state has a unique list of medical conditions that qualify a patient for certification for medical cannabis. Some of the health conditions that permit the use of medical marijuana (under the supervision of a physician) include:

  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
  • Anxiety
  • Cancer
  • Chronic pain (longer than 3 months of persistent pain)
  • Glaucoma
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBS) and Crohn’s Disease
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) and addiction therapies
  • Seizures
  • Chronic migraines

What Happens if My Child Needs Medical Marijuana Treatments?

In both the State of New Jersey and Pennsylvania, adult parents or legal guardians can designate themselves as a caregiver for the minor. A medical evaluation is required to confirm that the health diagnosis for your child meets the qualification requirements.
The adult or legal guardian can make an application for the minor (child). The caregiver name will be listed on the medical marijuana card, and that individual will need to present photo identification, and the card for the certified minor to a dispensary, to purchase therapeutic cannabis products.
