Marijuana, also known as cannabis, was used for centuries to relieve pain or treat various diseases and conditions. At Natural Pain Solutions, we specialize in medical marijuana treatment in Suffolk County, providing assistance and relief for a multitude of chronic and conventional health problems.
What is medical marijuana or medical cannabis?
Medical marijuana is a plant-based medicine extracted from Cannabis indica and Cannabis sativa and is used to treat various diseases and severe conditions. It is similar to recreational marijuana, but with reduced psychoactive effects.
A marijuana plant contains over 100 cannabinoids each having a different effect on the body. The main chemicals used in medical marijuana are tetrahydrocannabinol or THC and cannabidiol or CBD. While CBD is the pain-relieving chemical in the plant, it comes together with THC that is responsible for making you “high.”
For improved benefits with lesser side effects, we are balancing the CBD and THD concentrations in the medical marijuana treatment in Suffolk County.

The active elements in medical marijuana are similar to the ones used by our body to increase appetite, to stimulate memory, or movement and to reduce pain. Recent studies done on medical marijuana suggested that the active cannabinoids in the plant can have a positive effect on a large number of conditions and can:
- Kill cancer cells and slow tumor growth
