In brief: Who knows?
This is exactly the problem with "medical" marijuana.
Doctors are not trained in the ins and outs of marijuana use. All we can do is "recommend" it. It's not really a prescription. That said, smoking it may not be the safest way to consume it because of possible damage to your lungs. Consider eating it (in cookies or other food) or using a vaporizer. Ask specifics at your local dispensary.

In brief: Really?
Seriously? Ask your 'prescriber.' i've been in practice for 25 years and i've never been asked that question.
