Tips For Getting Medical Advice About CBD From Your Doctor

Updated: Feb 27

Whether you are having sleeping problems, if your body is aching, living with chronic pain that just won't go away or your work life is filled with stress and anxiety making you want to turn to CBD and giving it a try. This is only normal as everyone has heard wonderful things about the natural holistic supplement we call Cannabidiol or CBD. CBD is a chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. It is among the 100s of cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Cannabinoids include THC, CBN, CBG, CBC, THCa, CBDa and of course CBD. CBD is often derived from hemp plants as hemp plants contain more CBD than THC. CBD has various health beneficial properties like improvement of sleep, treating insomnia, pain relief, anxiety and stress reduction, anti-inflammation, managing seizures and regulating the immune system.

However if you are already taking medications or have any health history then we recommend for your own benefit and safety to consult with your medical provider if you are planning on using CBD. So here are some tips to help you prepare for the discussion with your doctor to come up with a good CBD treatment plan.

It's always good to do your research before your appointment. Find out more information about the origin of CBD. Find out about the different types of CBD. Consider the pros and cons of CBD.

Be transparent with your doctor. If you are really interested and keen on trying CBD do discuss this with your doctor. Your doctor can discuss the options, treatment plan or the benefits and risk of using CBD.

Listen to what the doctor has to say. Go in with an open heart. Consider what the doctor has to say as it is the doctor’s job to choose what is right for you. The doctor will probably have more knowledge about CBD, medications and health.

Consider your health and search the internet whether using CBD could benefit your condition. Chances are CBD could help with your ailments one way or the other.

Know the local law concerning CBD. Find out if CBD is legal in your area or not. It is also good to know what is the limitation of the amount of THC allowed in your CBD product. CBD products should not have more than 0.3% THC.

There are three different types of CBD. Each has its own pros and cons. CBD Isolate is considered to be the purest form of CBD as it has been extracted to just include CBD. CBD Isolate is THC free and great for people that don't want to worry about THC. Broad Spectrum CBD contains CBD and other cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids but is THC free. Broad Spectrum is great for people who want the maximum benefit from the cannabis plant without THC. Full Spectrum CBD, just its name, does come with lots of CBD and has THC, other cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids. Using Full Spectrum CBD can guarantee that your body will experience the “entourage effects". That's when all the components from the cannabis plant work together to deliver the maximum benefit.

Consider different CBD products and decide which one is right for you. Today CBD is available as oil, tincture, topicals, capsules, edibles or vaping oil to name a few. Each works differently with your body. Vaping CBD oil does make your body feel the effects from CBD faster, but it doesn't last as long as using CBD oil. With the sublingual method (dropping oil under your tongue) it's roughly around 15-30 minutes before your body will feel the effects from CBD oil, but the effects last much longer than any other method.

List down questions you want to ask your doctor about CBD. These questions may be hep:

  • What type of CBD would be most effective for you?

  • The best CBD delivery method? Should it be taken orally, sublingually or vape.

  • Will CBD interact with other medications?

  • Where can I find information about CBD?

  • What kind of CBD product should I use?

  • What are the side effects of CBD?

It's your right if you wish to get a second opinion. Some doctors may not be open to trying CBD as there is still not enough information on CBD so they may be reluctant to prescribe or recommend any CBD product and if you still have any doubts it's perfectly okay to seek a second opinion.

Keeping track of your CBD usage is a good idea. If you are able to note down your daily use and result, it will make it easier to determine what dosage is right for you.

Remember to always start with low dosage and slowly add the amount until you find what works for you.

Be patient! Sometimes it takes time before you start noticing a difference with CBD and your health.

Consistency is also important. Using CBD regularly allows your body to get use to CBD and at the same time your body can accumulate the right amount of CBD to reach its goal.

Before buying your next CBD, always ask for lab test results or Certificate of Analysis to make sure that the product is organic and free from harmful chemicals.
