Tips & tricks on how to prepare for your medical marijuana evaluation

Scheduling a medical marijuana evaluation can seem a bit daunting. But there are tips and tricks that we can give you in order for you to have the best chance at success!

At West Virginia Marijuana Card, we never want you to go into a medical marijuana evaluation with us nervous about the outcome. Our goal is to make getting your medical marijuana card as easy as possible if you have a qualifying condition.

This article is all about how to be prepared for your medical marijuana evaluation which will help increase your chances of getting approved!

1. Start with Finding a Good Doctor

The doctor holds all the cards when it comes to getting medical marijuana treatment. They are the only ones that can approve you if you have a qualifying condition.

One of the simplest ways to have some more control over your medical marijuana evaluation is to do your homework. Make sure that you are scheduling your evaluation with a reputable company who has a good track record.

Be aware that there are scammers out there. There have been cases where fake companies will give you an evaluation, approve you and send you a fake card. There have also been cases where a legitimate company does not send your approval through, stealing your money and leaving you without a card.

Lucky for you, you’re in the right place! At West Virginia 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 patients. We also have a pre-dispensary promotion where you get $50 off your evaluation right now until dispensaries are open. We are a company that you can trust!

2. Show Yourself at Your Best

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

Coming to your evaluation as your best self just makes it easier for the doctor to take you seriously and is an easy way to gain trust and respect. Come to your appointment well dressed, showing proper etiquette, and being polite.

While this comes as second nature to most of us, some people just need the extra reminder to treat your evaluation more like a light interview rather than a doctor's appointment.

3. Share Your Previous Treatment

In order to get medical marijuana treatment in West Virginia, you have to be diagnosed with a qualifying medical condition. You can increase your odds of being approved for medical marijuana treatment by having experience with other treatments.

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

4. Do Your Homework

We are not expecting you to know everything about medical marijuana. We know this is a niche subject that you will learn more about once you get approved. But, overall, it doesn’t hurt to have a little bit of background knowledge on medical marijuana.

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

5. Ask Many Questions

Remember that your evaluation is a two way street. It is not only a time for your doctor to ask you questions, but it is a time for you to ask them questions too. Ultimately, you are seeing if medical marijuana is right for you and your condition.

So just ask away! Ask as many questions as you would like to your doctor. You will get a better understanding of what medical marijuana is, available dispensaries and what to expect on your medical marijuana journey altogether.
