Medical Marijuana Q&A

What is medical marijuana?

Medical marijuana is prescription cannabis that Dr. Ogbonna may recommend it if you have a condition like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), chronic pain, spasticity, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, sciatica, or severe insomnia.  

Do I have a qualifying condition for medical marijuana?

Under the Compassionate Use Program (CUP), Texas allows registered physicians to prescribe low tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) — a form of cannabis that contains 0.5% or less of marijuana’s active ingredient — for medical use only.

Dr. Ogbonna may prescribe medical marijuana use for the following conditions:

  • PTSD
  • Autism 
  • Terminal cancer 
  • Epilepsy 
  • Seizure disorders 
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  • Spasticity 
  • Incurable neurodegenerative diseases
  • Muscle spasms 
  • Nerve pain
  • Sciatic pain
  • Chronic pain
  • And many more 

Patients can only obtain a prescription for low-THC if they’re permanent residents of Texas. 

How should I prepare for medical marijuana treatment?

Discovering whether you have a qualifying condition is the first step in obtaining a medical marijuana card. As a telehealth provider, Dr. Ogbonna provides virtual consultations for medical marijuana. 

This initial visit also gives you the opportunity to discuss your symptoms and concerns with Dr. Ogbonna. After conducting a thorough review of your medical history, she can determine if you can benefit from treatment and answer any questions you may have about the process. 

Physicians in Texas can only prescribe medical marijuana if they’ve deemed the benefits of cannabis to outweigh the risks. If you’ve exhausted your treatment options and are still experiencing nausea, poor appetite, vomiting, or chronic pain, prescription marijuana may help improve your condition.

What can I expect from medical marijuana?

At Legacy Health & Wellness Clinic, Dr. Ogbonna gives you thorough instructions on using cannabis once you obtain your prescription. She schedules regular check-ins to ensure your treatment is effective with minimal side effects. 

Side effects from low THC are typically mild. If you experience any problems that concern you, please reach out to Dr. Ogbonna as soon as possible. She can make medical adjustments as needed to help improve your experience with medical marijuana or provide other complementary therapies to maximize your benefits.
