Parents may seem like some of the most difficult individuals to discuss medical cannabis with.

The lingering stigma some generations have toward marijuana may make this conversation seem a bit intimidating. However, the more you know about its benefits, the better you can explain your decision. Therefore, it is greatly recommended to perform thorough research on cannabis and how it can specifically aid your condition. Above all, parents will have your best interests in mind.

Firstly, clear the stereotype right away. The stereotypical marijuana user might smoke flower, while your situation may call for tinctures or even capsules. Cannabis comes in many forms, and each individual’s method of intake may vary depending on their medical condition, personal preferences, and endocannabinoid system.

Focus more on the benefits that helped you realize the potential of cannabis. Chances are, those same reasons may resonate with them.  Much like being a salesperson, sell the benefits of cannabis, not the plant itself. What initially appealed to you about medical cannabis could very well appeal to them also.

If a patient is under the age of 18, a parent or guardian’s approval is required in order to be certified for medical cannabis use, with the exception of anxiety. It is important that an agreement is reached before continuing to the next step. Once you have approval, visit our site at and schedule an appointment, or call us at 888-316-9085.
