Broadly, we practice holistic medicine – what WebMD calls, “a form of healing that considers the whole person… in the quest for optimal health and wellness.” This includes, in some cases, the provision of a medical marijuana recommendation.
The recommendation process is a legally valid one, guided by explicit standards written into Massachusetts law. At The Holistic Center, only a licensed healthcare provider will review your medical records and meet with you for an in-person evaluation, satisfying the law’s requirements.
If our healthcare provider partners deem it appropriate, patients may be written a legally valid medical marijuana recommendation that fully complies with state law.
The Center also provides educational information to outside doctors, holistic centers, and other individuals interested in learning about the potential benefits of medical marijuana.
Please use the Tele-Health Option. We also provide home visits for those patients who are homebound. The cost is more expensive than the office visit. CALL US TO DISCUSS THIS OPTION.
Patients suffering from any of the following conditions are candidates for a medical marijuana recommendation: cancer, glaucoma, AIDS, hepatitis C, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Crohn’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, or any condition our healthcare providers believe medical marijuana may be beneficial for. Some other conditions may also merit a medical marijuana recommendation, per the determination of a qualifying patient’s healthcare provider.
If you suffer from any of these conditions or feel as if medical marijuana would help you cope with other medical symptoms you may have, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with a Massachusetts-certified healthcare provider at The Holistic Center.
You can go to any of the 40 dispensaries located in Massachusetts. Go to the cannabis control commission website to find a listing.

No, the Center will not provide marijuana to patients; to do so would be illegal. Nor does the Center plan to pursue accreditation as a legal dispensing unit. The Center’s first priority is to provide the highest quality care to patients, within the bounds of Massachusetts state law. Caregivers may grow .crops for up to one patient (not including themselves) and are legally allowed to supply those patients with medicine.
The doctor’s recommendation is good for a period of time the doctor determines. From 15 days to 1 year.
