Medical Cannabis

A cannabis plant has more than 600 chemical components, of which around 140 are cannabinoids — molecules that work on our own, internal system of receptors and transmitters which is called our ‘endocannabinoid system’. This is why cannabis is so effective as a medicine. Medical cannabis, which may be composed by the whole cannabis plant or by different dosages and ratios of cannabidiol (CBD) or/and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), complements the human’s natural endocannabinoid system, and is involved in regulating physiological and cognitive processes such as memory, pain sensation, functioning of the immune system, to name a few. Cannabis has been used as a medicine in different cultures for thousands of years.
Medicinal cannabis can be used to treat many conditions and symptoms, and there are numerous studies that show its effectiveness in people affected by: -Pain symptoms and conditions (fibromyalgia, arthritis, chronic pain, back and neck pain, spinal cord injury or disease, nerve pain, etc.) -Neurological symptoms and conditions (epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease related symptoms, migraines, Parkinson’s disease related symptoms, multiple sclerosis, spasticity, etc.) -Psychiatric symptoms and conditions (eating and sleeping disorders, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), sexual dysfunction).
Q2 Clinic provides safe and comprehensive cannabis-based therapies for patients whose medical needs have not been fully met by traditional treatments or who wish to take a more natural approach to treating their symptoms. Our mission is to improve patients’ quality of life by providing a full-spectrum family medicine option, with innovative treatments for specific conditions in which medical cannabis therapies have shown effectiveness. At Q2 Clinic, we always put our patients’ safety and peace of mind first. During the first appointment, our physicians conduct an exhaustive assessment after going through the medical history of the patient, identifying the most important symptoms and evaluating the specific therapies which would be most beneficial. Follow-up appointments will give the doctors the chance to see how patients are responding to the suggested treatments and to make dosage adjustments, if needed.

All of the doctors in our highly trained team of physicians will prescribe what they consider to be the most effective formulation for each set of symptoms and diagnosis, but they will also work closely with each patient to make sure that they feel comfortable with the way of taking their prescribed medications. Medical cannabis can be taken orally (as a capsule, tincture or oil), inhaled (with a vaporizer), or be applied onto the skin as a balm, lotion or topical cream.
