PATIENTS

Your doctor is your partner in health care and he or she should be the first person you consult if you are interested in discussing medical cannabis as a potential treatment for your condition.

Speaking With Your Doctor

So how do you begin this conversation with your doctor? Here are some tips on how to discuss this therapeutic option.

Review all the information conveniently provided on our website. It may help you understand how using medical cannabis could help improve your condition.
Once your doctor’s appointment is made, be prepared to have an informed discussion about the use of medical cannabis.  Look for any supporting scientific studies on medical cannabis and your illness. You may also want to consider checking the websites for the Canadian Consortium for the Investigation of Cannabinoids  and the Canadian Medical Cannabis Council as well.
Be frank and upfront. If  you are one of those patients who are concerned about the many negative side effects associated with prescription medications, express that concern openly and ask about using medical cannabis as an alternative.
Tell your doctor exactly how you feel and why you feel this is an important medical treatment option for you to explore. In fact, if you have tried using marijuana to alleviate your symptoms and you feel it was successful, tell your doctor.
