CANADIAN CANNABIS CLINIC
In order to obtain medicinal marijuana, a patient must purchase it from a Licensed Producer (LP). There are many Licensed Producers across Canada that a patient can choose to register with. In order to register with a Licensed Producer, a patient must have authorization from a doctor in the form of a Medical Document (i.e. prescription).
The service we provide is the doctor’s authorization portion of the process. We help to arrange the appropriate paperwork, schedule an appointment with a doctor willing to review the file and complete the Medical Document if they feel it is appropriate, and send all required paperwork to the producer of the patient’s choice.
How do I obtain the supporting medical documentation?
Asking your health care practitioner for the above mentioned documentation is the simplest way to go about obtaining the documentation. We also have an Authorization for Medical Release form that we can send for you to sign and submit to your doctor.
Is there an age requirement?
Yes. If you are under the age of 25 you must have a parent or guardian sign a consent form and they must be present during your appointment. We understand you are above the age of majority, however long term cannabis use in patients under the age of 25 may be related to reducing neural development of the brain, which has not fully developed until the age of 25.
Can I choose more than one LP?
No. It is easier and more efficient to register with only one LP. If you are unhappy with the original LP that you have chosen then one change of LP per year without a scheduled appointment is included in the annual membership.
How often can I order from the LP?
You may only order up to a one month supply at a time. If you run out before the month is over, you must wait until the end of the month cycle to order again. However, you do not have to order every single month if you do not need to (if it lasts 6 weeks, you can wait until that time to order).
We are looking for any documentation that represents your diagnosis or conditions. Essentially, the doctor here is not doing a full assessment to determine a diagnosis, they are trusting the diagnosis of an alternate health care professional and we require some form of documentation to verify that. Proper documentation can be:
- A note from your GP stating the diagnosis, results of investigations and treatments attempted;
- Copies of specialists notes; or
- Copies of X-ray , CT scan, Ultrasound , or MRI reports.
How long does the process take?
Typically, we have availability for appointments within two to three weeks after receiving your documentation. After your appointment, it may take up to 3 weeks to be registered with the LP and begin ordering.
How much does it cost to purchase the actual marijuana?
The price varies between the different LPs and different strains, it typically ranges from $6-15 per gram. You are best to contact the LP you are interested in to discuss pricing options with them.
