Check out Telemundo's interview with NY Medical Marijuana Associates regarding cannabidiol (CBD), a non-intoxicating cannabis compound with significant therapeutic properties. Our Medical Director, Dr. Najeeb Hussaini, speaks about the recent news of Coca Cola venturing into CBD infused drinks and cautions consumers about the hype of CBD products on the market. His take away is medical marijuana is beneficial and effective for those suffering from a wide range of chronic conditions including chronic pain, an alternate to opioid use, cancer, HIV/AIDS, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease and more. Dr. Hussaini cites scientific research in that CBD and THC work best together, especially for chronic illness, to enhance each compound's therapeutic effects, as opposed to CBD alone.
We encourage patients to purchase medical marijuana products from a certified and licensed dispensary, which must follow strict guidelines and have high standards of quality control - and to be cautious of CBD products on the market and purchase from a trusted and reputable source.
