Useful information for patients and family members.
What’s the benefit of using medical marijuana?
Medical marijuana, unlike many prescription medicines, does not have a lethal dose, is self-administered/ titrated easily and may have less side effects than other medications that are used for the same purpose.
Can a patient with financial hardship obtain medical marijuana at a discounted cost?
Yes, please consult one of our Patient Care Advocates.
Where can I obtain a medical marijuana recommendation?
Recommendations for medical marijuana can be obtained from a qualifying physician within the state of Massachusetts. If you are interested in learning if medical marijuana would be a good treatment option, please find a list of offices that can put you in touch with a qualifying physician:
