If a person is suffering from any disease and want to be cured using medical marijuana, the choice can be exercised by the patient to a doctor so that the needful can be done if the doctor is convinced about it. Most doctors at first won’t prefer using the weed as a therapeutic drug though legislations do support it. This is due to the taboo attached with its usage. The abusive behavior that is attached to it generally restrains a medical practitioner to prescribe the drug to a patient but if a patient can discuss it with the doctor, things can be different. Therefore, it is very important that a patient highlights his condition and carefully makes a case of his treatment with the weed.
• Be frank and express yourself – It is very important for a patient willing to be treated with medical cannabis to be bold and upright. An open nature will always be respected by any person and therefore if the patient has any concern regarding negative side effect of the prescription medicines that should be told freely. Also, as an alternative the patient can seek to be treated with cannabis.
• Don’t beat around the bush – Without going around in a circle, a patient should clearly mention to the doctor the reasons of why he thinks that medicinal cannabis can be effective for his ailment. If sufficient knowledge has been attained, the patient can further discuss how it can be useful. Moreover, if the patient has already used marijuana earlier to get relief from the symptoms of the disease that also should be shared during discussion. All of this can be helpful to the patient as well as to the doctor to understand the disease better and suggesting remedies thereby.
Hence, if sufficient faith is placed on this type of medication a patient should not hesitate to ask the doctor about it.
