At MMJ Care MD, we know that remarkable breakthroughs in the field of cancer medicine, pain management, and holistic healing have led to some of the most prominent new kinds of clinics using medical marijuana and cannabis. It is a successful alternative medicine that helps those who are suffering from a debilitating or chronic condition. In recent years, more and more studies are proving the many benefits medical marijuana can provide for a number of different illnesses and conditions. Marijuana, also known as “cannabis,” contains compounds that can relieve pain, nausea, and other health issues and symptoms.
MMJ Care MD is a new kind of caring clinic in Miami that was set up by members of the local South Florida community to educate and help patients who can benefit from alternative medical marijuana treatment. Our medical marijuana practice is built on the foundations of understanding, professionalism, compassion, and customer satisfaction.
Since medical marijuana is illegal under Federal law and pharmacies do not supply it, doctors don’t actually prescribe the medical marijuana. Instead, at the new kinds of clinics like MMJ Care MD in Miami, we recommend to patients who could benefit from it, writing a letter explaining the patient’s diagnosis and the doctor’s choice of cannabis as treatment. Patients keep this letter and take it to a recommended medical marijuana dispensary. Our certified physicians perform thorough medical marijuana evaluations, including reviewing each patient’s complete medical history. The purpose of the evaluation is to issue a letter of recommendation that will provide the patient the opportunity to receive their medical marijuana card, or cannabis card. This allows the patient to visit a dispensary to receive treatment using medical marijuana. At MMJ Care MD, we will help those patients who qualify with the easy process of submitting the necessary documentation for obtaining their medical marijuana card in the State of Florida.

How Medical Marijuana Can Help Treat Illness in Miami
The components of medical marijuana that most studies focus on for the relief of pain relief and to treat a variety of illnesses are the cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC actually resembles the cannabinoid chemicals that occur naturally in your body and when patients ingest or inhale THC, it stimulates your cannabinoid receptors in your brain, activating you brain’s reward system and reducing pain levels. THC is actually a psychoactive compound that produces an elevated state of mind, known as a “high.” CBD by itself does not cause a high, although it does interact with pain receptors in the brain to exert pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effects.
Our Miami patients can now legally use medical marijuana to help treat a variety of illnesses and symptoms. You don’t need the classic medical prescription for medical marijuana or medical cannabis, but you do need a physician recommendation from the doctors at MMJ Care MD. If you are an appropriate candidate for medical cannabis treatment, our doctors can provide a medical cannabis recommendation that can be used in the state of Florida.
Here are some of the most promising new ways that legal medical marijuana can be used to treat everything from Parkinson’s Disease and migraine headaches, to Fibromyalgia and Cancer for our Miami patients:
Edibles: These are a patient favorite. Marijuana edibles are one of the most popular ways to use medical marijuana effectively. Edibles involve infusing food and gummies, cookies, brownies, and candies with the medicine. Edibles provide an easier, smoke-free way to take marijuana, but the effects of edibles can be difficult to predict or control, so less is always more.
Topical Treatments: Our MMJ Care MD patients apply topical lotions, balms, and salves that contain cannabinoids to their skin to relieve pain and inflammation. There are also transdermal patches containing cannabinoids available and they are typically more potent than lotions and salves.
Sublingual Treatments: The sublingual administration of medical cannabis involves placing tinctures under your tongue. The marijuana enters your bloodstream faster using this method, so it will work more quickly.
Cannabis Oils: Scientists discovered that it is possible to extract cannabis oil (FECO) from cannabis, using grain alcohol or ethanol. Patients usually take FECO orally and likely only need small quantities to experience benefits. CBD is another type of marijuana-based oil that is increasingly popular among people with chronic pain.
