Tips on Preparing for Your Medical Marijuana Evaluation

Updated: Sep 21, 2021

Booking a medical marijuana evaluation can be a bit daunting. But there are tips and tricks that you can look for in order to best optimize your chance for success!

At Ohio Marijuana Card, we never want you to go into a medical marijuana evaluation with us worried, nervous or stressed. Our goal is to make getting your medical marijuana card as easy as possible if you have a qualifying condition.

Today’s blog is all about how to best be prepared for your medical marijuana evaluation which will help increase your chances of getting approved!

1. Find the Best Doctor

The doctor holds all of the power when it comes to getting your medical marijuana card. This is because they are the only ones that can approve you if you have a qualifying condition.

One of the easiest ways to have some more control over your medical marijuana evaluation is simply to do your homework. Make sure that you are scheduling your evaluation with a reputable company.

Do take note that there are scammers out there. There have been cases in the U.S. where fake companies will approve you and send you a fake card. There also have been cases where a legitimate company doesn’t send your approval through, stealing your money and leaving you without a card.

Lucky for you, you’re in the right place! At Ohio Marijuana Card, we specialize in providing patients with medical marijuana cards after approval from our compassionate certified doctors. We have over 4,000 5-star reviews on Google and we have proudly served over 102,000 Ohio patients. We are a company that you can trust!

2. Present Your Best Self

While your medical marijuana evaluation is nothing to be overly concerned about, it is a serious process. This is because a physician could lose their license if they qualify someone for medical marijuana treatment when they shouldn’t be.

Presenting your best self just makes it easier for the physician to take you seriously and is an easy way to gain respect. Come to your appointment dressed well, show proper etiquette, and be polite.

While this is second nature to most of us, some people just need a little reminder to treat your evaluation more like an interview rather than a doctors appointment.

3. Explore Treatment Options

In order to get medical marijuana treatment in Ohio, you have to be diagnosed with a qualifying condition. You can increase your odds of getting medical marijuana treatment by having previous experience with other treatments.

When you are at your evaluation, just be open and honest with the physician. Tell them about your condition, the symptoms that you experience and what treatments you have tried in the past. This will give the physician a better idea of if medical marijuana treatment can be right for you!

4. Do Your Homework

We are not expecting you to be a medical marijuana genius. We know that this is a niche subject and that you will learn more about medical marijuana once you’re approved. But it is a good thing to have a little bit of background knowledge.

When you are talking to your physician, make it clear that you know the basics about medical marijuana and why you believe it could help your medical condition. This will help create trust between you and your physician which can better your chances of being approved.

5. Ask Questions

Remember that your medical marijuana evaluation goes both ways. It is not only the time for the physician to ask you questions, but it is a time for you to ask them questions. Ultimately, you are seeing if medical marijuana is right for you and your desired treatment plan.

So ask and ask and ask! Ask as many questions as you would like. The evaluation is the time for you to get a better understanding of medical marijuana, dispensaries and what to expect on your medical marijuana journey.
