Treat Medical Conditions with Cannabis

Medical marijuana (also referred to as medical cannabis, medicinal marijuana, or medical pot) is a safe, affordable, and effective alternative to the expensive, ineffective, and addictive prescription opioids on the market. Pennsylvania joins several other states in allowing qualified residents to have access to medical cannabis to treat conditions such as nerve damage, back pain, PTSD, and much more.

As medical marijuana laws in the state continue to progress, and the acceptance of natural remedies to treat pain becomes more popular, there is hope that the current list of conditions for medical marijuana will increase. While the decision-making plays out in our state legislature surrounding medical marijuana laws in PA, patients who currently suffer from approved conditions are invited to schedule a consultation with PA Medical Marijuana Doctor.

Our doctors are knowledgeable and up to date with the current laws and rules around medical marijuana in PA. Please check out our FAQ page for more information or schedule your appointment online today!
