How do I know if I am a candidate for prescription cannabinoids?
Prescription cannabinoids have been shown to be effective in improving symptoms of conditions for which other first-line treatments have failed. Symptoms include (but are not limited to) trouble sleeping, mood, chronic pain control, migraine, neuropathic pain, refractory epilepsy, poor appetite, nausea, and vomiting. Prescription cannabinoids are not first-line treatments for any of these conditions and will be considered only after these traditional treatments have failed.
The importance of being evaluated and formulated by a doctor
Due to the possible adverse effects and interactions with other medications that may occur, it is very important that medical cannabis is formulated by a trained and experienced doctor. By using extracts derived from cannabis, doctors formulate individualized master preparations from the different cannabinoids according to the pathologies of the patients, taking care not to do harm and controlling the adverse effects as much as possible. The prescribed formulas are made from scientific evidence and with the highest ethical, quality and safety standards, educating patients on how they should administer it. The patients they consult are subjected to a rigorous initial medical examination to assess their needs and suitability for receiving cannabinoids. If it is considered appropriate, the doctor will formulate cannabis derivatives in magisterial preparations according to the pathology of each user and using safe routes of administration (vaporized, oral, mucous or transdermal).
