Conditions We Treat
The New Jersey Medicinal Marijuana Program was developed to ensure that patients with debilitating conditions receive the compassionate care they need. The program allows registered Medical Marijuana Doctors in New Jersey to recommend their patients use medical marijuana to treat several specific medically approved conditions. The approved debilitating medical conditions treatable by Doctor THC under the NJ Medicinal Marijuana Program are:
• Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
• Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Lou Gehrig’s disease or ALS)
• Multiple Sclerosis
• Muscular Dystrophy
• Inflammatory Bowel Disease, including Crohn’s disease
• Terminal illness, including terminal cancer, if the doctor has determined a prognosis of less than 12 months
• Chronic pain related to musculoskeletal disorders
• Chronic pain of visceral origin
• Tourette’s syndrome
Doctor THC may also treat Glaucoma, Intractable Skeletal Muscular Spasticity, and Seizure Disorder, including Epilepsy, if the patient is intolerant or resistant to conventional therapies. The NJMMP also allows the prescribing of medical marijuana for treating patients with Cancer, Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), and Positive Status for Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) if the condition, or the treatment, cause severe or chronic pain, severe nausea or vomiting, cachexia or wasting syndrome.
Doctor THC will evaluate a patient's symptoms and test results to determine whether their diagnosis falls within the medically approved conditions that are treatable under the NJMMP. After approving a medical marijuana diagnosis, Doctor THC will suggest the best dispensary to meet the patient's specific treatment goals and needs. Currently, six dispensaries are operating in the state, cultivating over a hundred different strains of marijuana, each known to provide specific benefits, such as reducing seizures and muscle spasms, controlling pain, reducing eye pressure from glaucoma or improving appetite.
