Cannabis is medicine, so shouldn’t doctors guide patients on how to use it for symptom relief? We think so. This is one of the many things that make Innovative Wellness unique. We are one of the only physician offices in Chicago offering cannabis consulting and cannabis focused primary care.
Our team has collected patient data over the last three years to develop medical protocols for eleven common medical conditions. Our goal – to help patients feel better faster. Whether you are considering medical cannabis for the first time, or looking for guidance to help you achieve optimum symptom relief, we can help. Our team certifies patients for medical cannabis, and more importantly, educates patients so they can enter the dispensary with confidence. We are experts in cannabis strains and can share the best types for anxiety, pain, insomnia, nausea and more.
Innovative Wellness has established medical cannabis protocols for the following conditions:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Cancer (pain, nausea)
- Parkinson’s Disease
- PCS/Traumatic Brain Injury
- Crohn’s Disease/IBS
- Spinal Stenosis
What to Expect
During a consulting appointment, our team will review your symptoms and goals, offer product overviews and educate you on the options available that are best suited to your individual needs. We continue to work with our patients as they explore medical cannabis to answer questions and made adjustments to their regimen as necessary. Here’s what you can expect:
- Step 1: Review Symptoms and Goals – during out initial consultation, we’ll discuss your medical symptoms, goals for using cannabis, and your lifestyle. This information will help us identify the best product strains and consumption methods to fit your needs.
- Step 2: Product Overview – Our team of cannabis consultants will educate you on the products available, and make recommendations based on what is in stock at your dispensary. We’ll even call ahead to have your dispensary put it aside for you.
- Step 3: Follow Up – As with any new medication, there can be a brief trial-and-error period with cannabis. We suggest that you take detailed notes, keeping track of how you feel after taking each product, to identify which strains best achieve your goals. Together, we’ll review this information and make any modifications necessary.
Innovative Wellness patients can also see a medical provider who supports cannabis for their ongoing healthcare needs. Contact us for more information or to schedule an appointment.
