Here at NY Medical Marijuana Associates we firmly believe in the benefits medical marijuana can bring to a broad spectrum of ailments. If you have been diagnosed with one or more of the following conditions and have supporting medical documentation such as a referral from your doctor, you are eligible for medical marijuana certification.

  • Chronic pain
  • Neuropathy / Radiculopathy
  • Cancer
  • PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
  • Depression
  • Epilepsy
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
  • Huntington’s Disease
  • Acute Pain
  • Dystonia
  • Autism
  • Anxiety
  • Parkinson's Disease
  • Alzheimer's Disease
  • Spinal Cord Injury With Spasticity
  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

If your medical condition is not listed above, you may still qualify for medical marijuana. Once you begin the certification process, our doctors will review your condition(s) and medical records to determine if you can be certified for medical marijuana.

Please note: Opioid Use/Replacement is a qualifying condition for MMJ, but we cannot certify for this condition at this time as we do not have the specific doctor's certification to do so yet. Please check the conditions above to see if you have any other condition for which you can be certified.
Research on MMJ Treatment

Keep in mind that everyone’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) is different, and therefore cannabis may affect one person differently to another, even if they suffer from the same condition. You may require a different strain or dosage amount to someone else, or you may be on other medications that MMJ could interfere with. It is always best to speak to your doctor for advice on what may work for you.

Below you'll find more information and the pros and cons of medical marijuana treatment for some common qualifying conditions.
