When the doctor prescribes medicine, it’s important to get exactly what you need. The doctor has to write the dosage, product, and the times when the medication should be taken. The doctor told my daughter that he thought medical marijuana would be a great choice for her to help with pain that she has had since a car accident occurred in 2015. The doctor didn’t really tell my daughter anything when he gave her the prescription. I thought that was very strange and odd. My daughter didn’t know anything at all about medical marijuana. She went to a medical dispensary and I went with her to see how things went. Thankfully there were lots of helpful people that pointed my daughter in the right direction. They suggested starting with a low dose marijuana edible. They pointed out some of the ones that were specifically for pain. The bartender also suggested starting with a CBD product as well, because CBD is another cannabinoid known to help with pain and swelling. The product recommendations were a great help. The staff members were a great help. They did more to help my daughter than the doctor did. He didn’t educate her on the dangers or the benefits. I find it rather unsettling that the doctor can prescribe marijuana to a patient without ever going through the process of explaining the difference between an indica and a sativa. My daughter didn’t even know there was a difference when it comes to the products. She really has a lot to learn about marijuana.
