Preparing for Your Medical Marijuana Evaluation in Missouri
Preparing for your medical marijuana evaluation in Missouri is easier than you might think!
Lots of patients are nervous for their first marijuana evaluation with a Missouri doctor, and we get it! Even if you have been diagnosed with one or more of the clear-cut qualifying conditions, you may still be affected by the stigma associated with cannabis use.
People are often nervous to talk to a doctor, because the fact that cannabis is a legitimate medicine used to treat a whole host of symptoms has been drowned out by the common images associated with the counterculture movement of the 1960s.
The good news is that it’s 2021, and marijuana is no longer a counterculture issue. More and more, people are recognizing the value in our favorite plant. A full 90 percent of US adults think that marijuana should be legalized in some form or another, and new reform laws are sweeping the country.
At Missouri Marijuana Card, we want all our patients to feel confident and empowered to take charge of their treatment plan with us. In this post, we’re going to give you the insider tips and tricks for preparing for your medical marijuana evaluation appointment, and help put your mind at ease for the big day.
1. Find a Marijuana Referral Provider You Can Trust
Cannabis as medicine is not a recent development. In fact, it dates back thousands of years. US medical texts even recommended cannabis to treat a number of ailments back in the 19th century.
However, due to Federal regulations starting in the 1930s, marijuana was discontinued as a popular medicine. As a result, most general practitioners today are completely unfamiliar with the benefits of marijuana. So it can be hard to find a Missouri doctor who is informed and thorough in their understanding.
In addition to that, there are plenty of companies operating in Missouri that don’t actually offer the kind of service they promise. This can make it a real challenge to find a marijuana referral provider you know you can trust!
Fortunately, Missouri Marijuana Card checks all the boxes for what you should look for in a marijuana evaluation provider. With over 700 highly-rated Google reviews, we have an excellent reputation. We’ve been around for as long as Missouri has had a medical marijuana registry, we are known for answering our phones and providing friendly, informative service, and our patient resources are some of the best in the business!

3. Let Us Help You With Your Medical Records
If you have a formal diagnosis, it always helps to have medical records documenting the condition. If this is something you’re having trouble with, don’t hesitate to reach out to us! We can help you gather all the documentation that you will need for your appointment.
If you don’t have a diagnosis or medical records to prove it, give us a call at (877) 303-3117. We might still be able to help you get your medical marijuana card for the kind of natural relief you deserve!
4. Do Your Research
We are not suggesting you get your WebMD Ph.D. before your appointment. However, learning about ways that medical marijuana can help your condition is an excellent precursor to talking to our doctors. This way, you’ll be able to have an informed conversation.
Research often sparks more questions, and you should continue writing them down as you go. We want to make sure you walk away from your appointment with all the information you need in order to make satisfying and effective decisions regarding your treatment plan!
