How to Talk to your Doctor
Talking to your doctor about medical marijuana should not be a difficult or uncomfortable experience, though you may be wondering how to approach the conversation. Below are some tips on how to broach the topic.
1. Share your experience and reasons why you think medical marijuana might be worth considering for your treatment. This could include the efficacy or side effects of current medications you are on. If you have had personal experience with using marijuana and found it to have a positive effect on alleviating your symptoms, say so. You may also wish to voice concern about your ability to access a safe and legal supply of medical marijuana, versus obtaining it from an untrustworthy source.
2. Once explaining your reasons, simply ask your Doctor if they are willing to sign your medical document.
3. If your Doctor is unwilling to sign your medical document ask them if they are willing to sign a referral form for a doctor that specialises in Cannabinoid therapy.
