About Our Medical Marijuana Program
Pulse is proud to offer another form of Complementary Alternative Medicine (CAM) via our medical marijuana program. New York State just recently expanded the medical marijuana use conditions to include an “other” category. This allows the evaluating provider to certify any patient who they believe could benefit from medical marijuana usage regardless of their condition.
The service primarily aims to treat our patients with chronic conditions and serious illnesses who meet the eligibility for medical use of marijuana. New York State’s Medical Marijuana Program allows patients who suffer from designated serious conditions with symptoms clinically associated with, or complications of, the serious condition to be certified by their medical provider to receive marijuana for medical use. So, regardless of your condition, you might qualify and should be evaluated as soon as possible in order to get you on the correct path to alleviating your symptoms.
