Who are the doctors who prescribe medical cannabis?
The doctors who prescribe medical cannabis are specialists, experts in fields ranging from pain to neurology to cancer, explains Mamedica founder Jon Robson.
Robson says, ‘Many of our consultants have been prescribing medical cannabis in the UK for anywhere between six months to two years.’
‘A lot of the feedback we’re hearing from prescribers is that they’re getting tremendous job satisfaction from patients coming back and actually saying, this is really helping me.’
What does the consultation involve?
The consultation will establish whether you are an experienced or inexperienced medical cannabis user, says consultant Dr Neel Umapathy.
The consultant will also discuss your conditions and your medical history, Dr Umapathy explains.
Dr Umapathy says, ‘The consultation takes into account your medical history, the indication for cannabis and whether there are any contraindications – and also issues such as side effects.’
