Eligibility for Medicinal Cannabis Use

Under Health Canada’s program, tens of thousands of Canadians may legally possess and use Medicinal 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.

Our counsellors evaluate patient eligibility through a pre-examination questionnaire, medical document acquisition, and patient interview. In most cases our physicians require a referral – if this is not possible, please contact our staff to 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 (LP), 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.

A Medicinal Cannabis prescription is most often issued to relieve chronic pain or address other aliments such as arthritis, colitis/Crohn’s, fibromyalgia, anxiety, depression, and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
