Medical Marijuana Media Kit for Lauraine Kanders, Board Certified NP New York

My name is Lauraine Kanders. I am a seasoned adult nurse practitioner who is board certified and practices in the state of New York. I own and operate an online medical marijuana certification business and I am a practitioner registered by the State of New York for this purpose.


My expertise lies in the medical care of the chronically ill, many of which have conditions like chronic pain, cardiovascular disease, neuromuscular diseases, cancer, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, etc. I provide primary care to patients who are homebound on behalf of a house call medical company. I also have a medical marijuana practice which provides consultative services to those who seek medical marijuana and have qualifying conditions like, chronic pain, opioid replacement, cancer, HIV/AIDS, MS, etc. I provide follow up to ensure that patients are using the recommended medical cannabis to alleviate their symptoms effectively

What the public needs to know about Medical Marijuana

The public is understandably misinformed or under- informed about medical marijuana in New York.

A few of the frequent misunderstandings include:

  • What legalization means and why medical marijuana is only legal on a state level
  • Why medical marijuana cannot be prescribed
  • The differences between hemp vs cbd vs medical marijuana
  • That goal of medical marijuana is to improve your symptoms, not get you “high”
  • How one qualifies
  • How medical marijuana can benefit you
  • How it is dispensed
  • Why insurance will not pay
  • Why a practitioner cannot steer you to one particular dispensary
  • Why you do not need your doctor’s permission

Why I am a good choice to explain this to your audience and readership

My website, www.MedicalMarijuanaRecsNY.Com does a good job of explaining but I can do it best in person. I have 350 active medical marijuana patients and understand all the nuances involved in this field. I have seen over time how patients can improve the quality of their lives by utilizing medical marijuana to function better, sleep better and focus better. I make every effort to help patients replace their opioids with this safer alternative to pain relief. I have helped my patients to wean their opioids carefully in a controlled way so as not to have pain and experience withdrawal. I am very patient dedicated and caring, and patients appreciate this. I value education and incorporate it into my practice


***** I was very pleased with how easy it was to get certified for medical marijuana. Lauraine Kanders made what I thought was going to be a very complicated process into a simple smooth process. I was told everything that I needed to know. If I have known how easy this would be, I would have done this a long time ago. Lauraine is very professional and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Medical Marijuana Recs NY. *****

***** It was a pleasure working with Lauraine Kanders, NP, to get my registration for medical marijuana to, hopefully, get me off an addictive, synthetic, prescription drug. Lauraine is very professional and knowledgeable; and her response time is always amazing. I am a

profoundly deaf person and often find medical professionals to be too caught up in their work/themselves to actually make communicating with me easy and successful, but Lauraine was different right from the get-go. I truly appreciate her easy-going and cooperative attitude!*****

***** Best experience I have ever had with a healthcare provider! Super personable, and easily understood. 10/10 *****

***** A big thank you to Lauraine Kanders…finally, someone that really listened to me! I truly appreciate you taking the time to understand what I have been dealing with. I have a neuromuscular form of Muscular Dystrophy called Charcot Marie Tooth Disease (CMT), as well as Spinal Stenosis and other problems that cause chronic pain. Thank you for understanding that I am trying to keep active and alert. It’s been 6 months since I’ve started, and the pain level has dropped to a much more tolerable level. I am looking forward to cutting out my opioid intake altogether. Thank you so much for making such a difference in my life. I highly recommend your service to other patients. *****
