When you have identified it, you should also explain to the doctor why you would like to use cannabis (or want to use cannabis) to help you heal your health problems. It is a common nature of all medical doctors to understand your situation but they are oblige to know your reason behind it. Apart from that, medical doctors would also tell you the possible effect this alternative medicine could affect your welfare. To give you an idea, medical cannabis can be smoked, can be eaten, or can be used in some other form, but patients can use this cannabis to heal various health cases in limited grams only.
