Under Health Canada’s ACMPR program, tens of thousands of Canadians are legal to possess and use medical cannabis. When used as part of a health care strategy, Cannabis for Therapeutic Purposes (CTP) is an effective and safe adjunct or alternative to other pharmaceuticals. The decision to prescribe medicinal cannabis is made solely by a Medical Doctor (MD) in consultation with the patient.
Our counsellors will evaluate patient eligibility through a pre-examination questionnaire, medical document acquisition and patient interview. In most cases our physicians require a referral – but if this is not possible please contact our staff who will make arrangements with one of our physicians. Medical documentation must be available from your physician, records department, clinic or hospital.
Following the patient/physician consultation, patients will work with one of our educators and a decision will be made as to which Licensed Producer (L.P.), strain or oil best suits their needs. Recommendations will be made based on medical history, patient consultation, the patient’s previous cannabis experience and physician oversight.
