Most patients are reluctant to be open regarding how much and how often they use Cannabis. I always encourage my patients to be as honest as possible, as this is the best starting point in any doctor-patient visit.
Further more, if we are discussing treatment for anxiety, depression or ADD……..we are talking about Sativa strains during the daytime hours. In my opinion, the most significant issue with daytime medicating is related to the smoking. If patients are using sativa tinctures, which are ideal for daytime mood disorders, they are no different than any other patient using xanax, valium or vicodan out of a pill bottle during the day.
The smoking and smell during the daytime are generally just not acceptable. I encourage everyone to learn more about the daytime use of sativa tinctures/concentrates. They just seem so much more like “real medicines”.
