Long Island Pain Management Doctor Dispels Myths about Medical Marijuana
At present, 29 U.S. states and Washington D.C. have legalized medical cannabis for the treatment of many conditions that cause chronic, debilitating pain. New York State is one of the states where it is legal, with a prescription from a physician approved to certify patients into the program.
While so many people have found unbelievable relief from medical cannabis, there will always be naysayers. People who don’t understand the facts are often unwilling to accept the truth about controversial topics. However, it is clear from the numbers of patients who have found long-lasting pain relief, without the side effects, through continued medical marijuana use that it’s time to dispel the untruths, or myths, and get the word out.
Medical marijuana for pain relief is real, effective, and safe.
And, there is no reason you should not talk with Dr. Jahan Chaudhry, MD, founder of the Long Island Compassionate Medical Center. He will evaluate you and determine if you are a candidate for New York State’s Medical Marijuana program for long lasting pain relief with little to no side effects.
Get the Facts and Forget the Myths about Medical Marijuana in New York
Pain is a debilitating condition that keeps people from enjoying productive lives. Period. Medical marijuana treatment for pain is not about getting high; it’s about obtaining relief from the overwhelming discomfort many feel for prolonged periods due to many treatable conditions.
It’s about pain relief, not about getting high.
Don’t Allow These 5 Myths to Stop You from Obtaining Long-Lasting Pain Relief with Medical Cannabis
Myth No 1: There has been no research about the efficacy of medical marijuana.
WRONG! Israel, always on the cutting edge of technology and medical research, has been studying the impact of medical cannabis for pain relief for more than 50 years! Israel legalized medical marijuana for pain relief back in the 1990’s. It’s ridiculous to say that no research has been conducted about medical marijuana.
Myth No. 2: No one has proven medical cannabis to be effective for pain relief.
Millions of people are experiencing pain relief thanks to medical marijuana programs in 29 U.S. states. While there is no federal program in the United States legalizing medical cannabis (at present, legalization is on a state-by-state basis), many countries around the world offer people suffering from pain access to medical marijuana.
It makes absolutely no sense to say there is no proof that medical cannabis is effective for pain relief. Clearly, medical marijuana has wide-ranging medicinal value. The number of registered medical cannabis patients worldwide is growing daily.
Myth No. 3: Cannabis leads to use of harder drugs.
Medical marijuana is not a gateway drug in any way. In fact, medical cannabis is much safer for pain relief than addictive opioids.
People who choose to try hard drugs do so because of availability and attitude; they want to experiment with them. People who take medical marijuana do so because it is a safe and effective way to relieve pain. It’s not about the high; it’s about pain relief.
Myth No. 4. There is a huge danger of overdosing on medical marijuana.
There have been no reported deaths in the United States attributed to cannabis overdose.
When you compare “zero medical marijuana deaths” to the ever-rising fatalities attributed to FDA-approved synthetic drugs, the story is clear. Medical cannabis is a safe way to relieve chronic, debilitating pain in New York and throughout the country.
Myth No. 5: People take medical cannabis just to get high.
No one chooses to be in pain. If you are suffering from debilitating chronic pain from any number of qualifying conditions, you are not thinking about getting high. You want long-lasting relief from pain. Safe, effective and long-lasting pain relief is available with medical cannabis in Long Island.
