Medical Marijuana Certification Available
Oct 01, 2019 03:00AM
Dr. Edwin Stroup, MD, offers medical marijuana certification at his practice, Alternative Medical Solutions, in Sebastian. He is an emergency medicine specialist and has been practicing for 37 years. Dr. Stroup’s practice is dedicated solely to alternative options for chronic conditions and certifying patients for medical marijuana. Dr. Stroup shares that he offers many CBD products that can often help with chronic pain and inflammation without the euphoric effects of THC but notes that for many conditions THC is a better choice. “Many patients also use cannabis to treat their anxiety. This can help them get off anxiety medications that may have negative side effects,” says Dr. Stroup.
The initial consultation includes a review of your medical records to determine if you qualify for certification and a completion of your application to the state. Dr. Stroup offers a no cost phone follow up in the first 30 days after a patient obtains their card to ensure they are doing well and to determine if adjustments need to be made.
“Cannabis has many medical indications including chronic pain, PTSD, fibromyalgia, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), migraines, and more,” says Dr. Stroup. “We have been seeing amazing results for patients with multiple chronic pain related issues, and seeing patients getting off opiates and other prescription drugs after adding medical marijuana to their treatment regimen.”
