Discussing Medical Cannabis with the Doctor

Have your Medical Documents ready and clearly identify the symptoms you feel you can better manage with medical marijuana. Also make a list of medicines and therapies you have tried for these symptoms, and identify which have been effective and which have been ineffective. Explain how you are using cannabis (or want to use cannabis) to manage your symptoms, if you are presently medicating with cannabis take notes of how its helping you deal with your symptoms on a daily basis.

If you are concerned about your healthcare practitioner's reaction, remember that healthcare practitioners are there to work with you to help make the best decisions about your health. Bring someone with you for moral support if you are nervous and want to make sure you can bring up the subject of cannabis with your healthcare practitioner.
