How to Access Medical Marijuana in Canada
Accessing medicinal cannabis and its derivative products has never been easier in many markets across Canada. Understanding what is legal and what lies in the gray area is what we are here to help with.
Accessing Legal Medicinal Cannabis
To legally access dried marijuana flower a patient needs a prescription from a medical doctor and must order from one of the 20+ licensed producers listed on the Health Canada website. By the letter of the the law this is how it is supposed to be done.
The issue for a lot of our clients is finding a medical professional that is open minded and understands the benefits of medicinal cannabis. Our medical doctor is legally authorized to conduct patient examinations via skype and providing you suffer from a condition recognized by Health Canada as medicinal cannabis eligible the doctor will provide a prescription for medicinal cannabis that can be filled at any licensed producer in Canada.
Our medical doctor will see you within 3 to 5 business days of the moment your request for an appointment is approved. We will help you every step of the way to ensure that you are treated the way you deserve to be treated.
Accessing Cannabis Products through Local or Online Dispensaries….The Gray Area
So here is where things get a little confusing for some people and we will do our best to explain how the majority of dispensaries operate and essentially why it is becoming difficult to shut them down. As we all know governments in general tend to be reactionary and in the case of new or emerging technologies or treatments they are late to the party and by the time they get to the party it has moved down the road to the next big thing. This is where we are in what must be a nightmare for governments at all levels.
The primary issue is that patients deserve access to all sorts of marijuana derivatives which the licensed producers are not allowed to provide. Here is an example, Joe the cancer lung cancer patient wants to use medicinal cannabis to help with symptom management with a hope that the cannabis oil he is taking will also help eliminate cancer cells.
According to Health Canada he must order dried medicinal cannabis from a licensed producer and make the cannabis oil himself in order to be doing things in a legal manner. Joe is not healthy enough to do that nor does he posses the equipment or knowledge to make the oil so his legal access is non existent.
Enter the dispensaries. They are based in more and more Canadian cities and are readily available on line and typically stock all of the items that the licensed producers are not allowed to produce at the current time. Reputable dispensaries require a confirmation of diagnosis from a licensed naturopath that confirms a patient suffers from one of the conditions listed in the table below. Cannatours is very lucky to have one of the top ten naturopaths in the country taking good care of our patients. So if you are seeking a simple confirmation of diagnosis we can help you there regardless of your location.
