Whenever I’m at a new doctor’s office, I try to study the medical sheets provided in each respective lobby.
Even though I consistently have my phone with me and could just as legitimately browse the internet, I still like to read medical journals, especially if I’m seeing a specialist who I’ve never met before.
For example, I had to see a sports physician once after I ruined the muscles in my back. In the waiting room there were journals discussing all unusual kinds of muscle injuries from head to toe. There was one unique journal discussing all sorts of arm and back injuries. Before I even went back to see the nurse, I had a good idea of what could have happened and what I would need to do with physical therapy to get the muscles to be back in business. When the physician ran a few tests, including an x-ray and CAT scan, he said that I had torn a major muscle. This was one of the injuries I had read about in the journal in the nurse’s waiting room. When I was waiting in the lobby at the medical marijuana dispensary, I noticed that they had a number of journals to study themselves. There was abundant literature to study detailing all sorts of info regarding medical cannabis and it’s common uses. For someone who is new to cannabis and is trying the plant for the first time, these journals are seriously great. Even the best marijuana physicians can’t remember every fact or piece of info when they’re helping new customers see their way through the process. With all of the money spent on becoming a medical cannabis customer, there doesn’t seem to be enough info from the state regarding what a new patient should do.
