Areas of Expertise

Among the qualifying conditions for an NYS MMJ license, our MMJ doctors have significant experience with the following:

  • Chronic Pain – The Endocannabinoid System in our brains is responsible for many bodily responses – including pain control. Through its effect on the cannabinoid receptors, MMJ is able to ease chronic pain under its many forms – from regular back pain to more advanced forms like neuropathic pain.
  • PTSD – Thanks to its calming effect on the endocannabinoid system, MMJ can prove an excellent form of relief for the panic attacks and chronic insomnia affecting PTSD patients.
  • Epilepsy – Epidiolex, a CBD-based medication approved by the FDA, serves as a useful treatment option for the seizures that are usually caused by epilepsy.
  • Fibromyalgia – Chronic pain is the leading reason patients use MMJ. As mentioned above, treatment has shown to be effective against many causes of pain – including the spinal and cerebral pain from fibromyalgia.
  • IBD – Medical Cannabinoids are used as a complementary or alternative method to treat symptoms of IBD and other gastrointestinal diseases.

Is medical MMJ covered by insurance in NY?

Currently, no. MMJ is still considered a Schedule I Drug by the FDA, and because of that, any MMJ-based medication is not covered under Medicaid or any other form of health insurance in New York State.

How much does MMJ cost in NY?

Contrary to most of its neighboring states, NY doesn’t charge any state application fees for its MMJ program. The only cost of MMJ in NY is the telemedicine doctor’s consultation, which is only $139 if you register with QMC.
