What are Psychiatric Conditions?
A psychiatric condition is a disorder which leads to mental illness and can have a dramatic impact on a patient’s mood, thinking, behavior, and overall quality of life and relationships with others. Unfortunately, the fallout of certain psychiatric conditions can lead to pain, disability, incarceration, institutionalization, and even death. Some of the most common psychiatric conditions include depression, PTSD, anxiety, schizophrenia, addiction, and personality disorders.
While the category of “psychiatric conditions” is certainly broad, each condition brings its own challenges for the patient. Fortunately, many psychiatric conditions have been identified as qualifying conditions for medical marijuana in Florida, such as anxiety, PTSD, and many others. If you or a loved one is suffering from a psychiatric condition and believe medical cannabis may be beneficial, contact a medical marijuana doctor today!

– 6 months on medical cannabis
– Previously treated with debilitating anxiety medications
When I was approved for Medical Marijuana, my anxiety had gotten so bad I was vomiting at times and I went up on anxiety medicines, which was bad for me and I could not drive. With Cannabis and a doctors recommendation I was able to go to a lower dose, and realize the pharmaceuticals were too high of a dose for me to be able to work and function normally. I am able to work more again have a second part time job now and feel like I am getting my life back. Driving again fine not when using of course. The doctors are great at MMTC and the cannabis pharmacies I have tried have all been excellent.

I live with a 3 level titanium neck. I have severe osteoarthritis. Severe fibromyalgia. Ptsd. Major anxiety. Bouts of depression. I am cane and wheelchair free by the grace of God and his plant.
– 5 months on medical cannabis
– Back Pain, Sciatica, Depression, Anxiety, Panic disorder, Insomnia
– Previously treated with opioids, benzos, antidepressants
After 5 months of cannabis treatment I am so happy to report the I no longer take any prescription medications for my conditions which are sciatica, major depression, general anxiety disorder with panic attacks and insomnia.
In the past I had a medication for each of those conditions that had bad side effects and addiction problems from the opiates to the benzos as well as the anti-depressants causing mania. After dealing with some of these for 20+ years it is AWESOME to have these conditions finally under some control that seems reasonable. Frankly, I haven’t had a quality of life this good in a very long time. Sansha was great to me at the Summerfield location and God bless you all at MMTC.
