Elite Alternative Medicine helps people in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with qualifying conditions improve their health and overall lifestyle using complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). Our philosophy is that it should be affordable, easy and accessible to receive medical marijuana evaluations for medical marijuana cards, and necessary alternative medicinal treatments for chronic conditions such as Cancer recovery, PTSD, Neuropathy, chronic pain, and more.
Most patients turning to medical marijuana have sought help for the qualifying conditions of chronic pain and post-traumatic stress disorder. Others benefit from marijuana as relief for a non-listed health issue such as anxiety only because they also have a qualifying condition such as chronic pain. The state’s qualifying condition list has been expanded at least once already with the addition of terminal illness and opioid addiction. As of 2020, roughly 87,000 patients have already registered in Pennsylvania to obtain MMJ, and more than 56,000 have been issued patient certifications.
With the state’s Medical Marijuana Advisory Board approving a new process for adding medical ailments, it may soon become easier for patients in Pennsylvania to purchase medical cannabis. On top of that, we are now online and offering virtual appointments! Our office hours are by appointment only but we offer appointments with a qualified physician online at your convenience.
