Medical Marijuana Q&A

What is medical marijuana?

Medical marijuana is an alternative treatment for several physical and mental health conditions. The marijuana comes from the Cannabis sativa plant. It contains active compounds that help ease pain and treat symptoms of chronic diseases and disorders.

The Nu Pathway Healthcare and Wellness team has extensive experience in qualifying people for a medical marijuana identification card through the MMCC. This card allows you to legally use marijuana to treat your condition.

What conditions can medical marijuana treat?

The team at Nu Pathway Healthcare and Wellness could recommend medical marijuana as a treatment for conditions like:

  • Anxiety
  • Arthritis
  • Epilepsy
  • Chronic migraines
  • Chronic back pain
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Medical marijuana might also be beneficial for relieving the pain of some cancers and the symptoms of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

What’s involved in getting a medical marijuana card in Maryland?

To qualify for a medical marijuana ID card in Maryland, you must schedule a consultation with your primary care physician at Nu Pathway Healthcare and Wellness. They’ll review your medical records and discuss the effects your health problems have on your life. Some lab work might be needed to assess your health.

The team determines if medical marijuana is an option for your treatment. You could be a candidate for medical marijuana if your existing treatments aren’t relieving your pain or other symptoms or if you’re unable to use certain medications.

Once your medical review is complete, you’ll submit an application to the MMCC for review. It can take 30 days or longer to get your approval before you can buy your MMCC card and receive your prescription. You must visit a Maryland state dispensary to purchase your medical marijuana.

How long is a medical marijuana card valid in Maryland?

Once you have an ID card from MMCC, it remains valid for three years. You need to keep up with your renewal certification to continue using medical marijuana as part of your treatment.

The Nu Pathway Healthcare and Wellness team keeps an eye on your health to determine if medical marijuana is working well for you. If you benefit from your treatment, they can help you comply with state law to maintain your medical marijuana card.
