How to talk to your
Healthcare Practitioner

Suggestions on talking with your Healthcare Practitioner

Have you considered discussing medical cannabis with your Health Care Practitioner? If so, here are a few ideas to get the conversation started:

Be your own advocate with your Health Care Practitioner, do your research before attending your appointment. You may wish to make note of how cannabis has helped others. Mention a documentary or news show you have watched and found highly informative or that had convincing, positive points about medical cannabis’ therapeutic uses. Share bits of information about research that you have discovered on the Internet. Research the different strains and methods of consumption ahead of time (www.leafly.com) to discuss with your Health Care Practitioner. Doing your own research shows you are interested in taking responsibility for your own wellbeing.

Do not be alarmed if your Health Care Practitioner tells you that he or she is uninformed about the subject or does not feel comfortable giving the referral or seems dismissive.

Start low and go slow is key in the beginning; also consider journaling your results.

Discuss a trial period and an assessment plan.

Focus on a successful outcome and what that looks like.
