Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the PA Dept of Health has allowed doctors to have virtual online visits with their patients.
When conventional medicine and pharmaceutical therapies have not provided relief of uncomfortable or debilitating health symptoms, it’s time to explore a new approach. CannMed Online Evaluations provides online visits for all patients in Pennsylvania. We help patients with qualifying health conditions get legally certified to be a medical marijuana card holder.
How is Medical Marijuana Used for Symptom Relief and Management?
There are many clinical studies that link medical cannabis to effective pain management, for certain health conditions. One of the most promising areas of success is the relief of neuropathic pain for diabetics.
What Symptoms and Health Conditions Can Medical Cannabis Be Used For?
One of the most common categories of therapeutic use for medical marijuana is pain relief. If you have been diagnosed with chronic pain, you may have developed a resistance to many commonly prescribed pain medications. Other types of conventional prescription medications can have more side-effects than benefit to chronic or terminally ill patients.
Glaucoma and nerve pain are two health conditions where relief of discomfort can significantly improve the quality of life for patients. In Quakertown, Pennsylvania, oncologists (cancer doctors) may suggest that cancer patients explore alternative pain management options, such as medical marijuana. It can be an effective treatment for nausea, loss of appetite, insomnia, muscular disorders such as Epilepsy and seizures, and immune-compromised patients (HIV / AIDS).
There are actually 19 medical conditions that will qualify a Pennsylvania resident for access to legalized medical marijuana. In a few steps (which includes a medical evaluation by a certified marijuana doctor) patients can receive an MMJ card, to purchase at one of the State certified dispensaries.
Can Caregivers Apply on Behalf of a Patient for Medical Marijuana?
If you are a parent or legal guardian who is taking care of a loved one with severe chronic health or hospice comfort, you can apply on behalf of your patient for medical cannabis in Pennsylvania. You will have to go through an authorization process and submit your name to the Pennsylvania medical marijuana registry.
Caregivers (once certified) will be listed on the patient’s card as a provider. The card or certification will remain in the patient’s name (with their photo identification on the card). The caregiver designation however makes it easier to pick-up medical marijuana products for the patient. A citizen of Pennsylvania may only be the caregiver for one patient.
