Dr. Sharon has years of experience in the use of medical marijuana to treat chronic pain and other conditions. He has been prescribing marijuana for patients since 2014 when he was practicing at Harvard Medical School’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Massachusetts where medical marijuana is legal. In addition, he has prescribed it for years in New York.
There is a growing body of evidence that marijuana can be helpful for those suffering from chronic pain and it is specifically approved in Israel and many states in the USA for those suffering from chronic debilitating pain when other therapies have failed.
In Israel, many patients have benefitted from the therapy. In order to be approved, one must suffer from severe chronic pain and have tried multiple other forms of therapy over a sustained period of time. Steady follow up with the prescribing physician is necessary.
Medical marijuana is a great resource for those who have tried many therapies including medications, lifestyle changes, injections and IV therapies. Dr. Sharon believes that marijuana is much safer than opiate therapies which people can get addicted to, die from, and have caused a severe epidemic in the United States of America.
