Where can I find more information on medical cannabis?
General information on medical cannabis is available on the GrowWise website here. If you believe medical cannabis may be appropriate for your patient, GrowWise can work with you to help you learn more about medical cannabis.
How does a patient purchase medical cannabis?
Under the federal Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR), patients are required to purchase medical cannabis from a Licensed Producer. Licensed Producers are regulated by Health Canada and follow strict quality control guidelines. Health Canada provides information on the MMPR for medical practitioners here. Once a physician authorizes medical cannabis by completing a Medical Document (similar to a prescription), patients are required to select and register with a Licensed Producer, and place an order directly with that producer.
How does a patient choose a Licensed Producer?
Licensed Producers offer different strains of medical cannabis at different prices. A list of all Licensed Producers is available on Health Canada’s website. GrowWise’s Patient Educators will work with patients to assist in choosing the most appropriate strain from the most appropriate producer.
