While not all doctors have the same train of thought, it is always important to talk to your doctor before trying anything.

Even though CBD is legal in the United States, not every doctor could be as excited about CBD as you may be. It is important to do your research.

Some key things to keep in mind when talking to your doctor are:

  • Why are you interested in taking CBD?
    • If you're nervous about talking to your doctor having some knowledge about your interests and needs could increase your credibility as well as maybe your doctors willingness to discuss CBD and how it may benefit your health.
  • Be honest and open
    • Although CBD is legal in all 50 states, it can be an intimidating topic to discuss with your doctor.
    • Remember your doctor is a human. The more honest and open you are, the more receptive your doctor is likely to be.
  • Don't be afraid to ask questions
    • Your doctor is there to listen to your needs.
    • Don't be afraid to ask them any questions you have about taking CBD.
    • You may ask if it could be beneficial to your current condition.
    • Be sure to tell your doctor what medications you are currently taking, if any, to ensure taking CBD will not impact your current medications in any way. (Your pharmacist should have of your current medications.)
