GrowWise Health is here to provide patients with the necessary support to access and effectively use their medical cannabis medication. We are committed to helping patients achieve optimal therapeutic benefits from their medication and improving their quality of life.
Currently, medical cannabis is the only medication in Canada for which patients are expected to directly interact with the manufacturer (Licensed Producer), and for which patients do not have access to a healthcare professional during the dispensing process.
Although your physician may have provided you with the authorization to obtain medical cannabis, you may still find yourself asking these important questions:
What is cannabis? How will it help my health condition? Is it safe? How do I use it? What is a “strain” and how do I choose the strain most appropriate for my condition? How do I access my medication? Who can I talk to for more information and support?
The Patient Education team at GrowWise Health is here to answer all of your questions and assist you in becoming knowledgeable on issues regarding strain selection, dosing, safety concerns and side effects. We are here to provide you with continuous support through our ongoing care program and exclusive patient hotline.
GrowWise is dedicated to helping patients achieve the best quality of life possible with their medical cannabis treatment.
Our Patient Educators can help guide you on your journey.
