No, you do not need a referral to see our doctors. However, we do accept referrals as they can provide greater clarity on the medical condition. With your permission, we can also send a request to your family physician to release any relevant medical information for your assessment.
How do I choose the right Licensed Producer (LP)?
Our Cannabis Educators will help you identify and register with a Licensed Producer (LP) that is appropriate to your needs.
What is a Licensed Producer (LP)?
A Licensed Producer (LP) is a company regulated by Health Canada that can legally produce and sell medical cannabis to patients in Canada.
Is there a charge/fee to see the doctor?
No. All visits are covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP).
Can I legally purchase medical cannabis from a dispensary?
No. Health Canada and the Accesses to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) stipulate that medical cannabis can only be sold by a registered Licensed Producer (LP).
Is there a charge/fee to see the Cannabis Educator?
No. Education sessions with our Cannabis Educators are provided free-of-charge.
Can the doctor see me remotely?
Yes. At CannaMed Clinic we use the Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN) to facilitate secure web visits for patients in Ontario. We will send you a secure link to join an appointment with the doctor. At present, OTN visits can only be arranged for patients who have a completed referral form from a referring physician.
What is the legal age to obtain a medical cannabis prescription?
According to Health Canada, a patient must be at least 18 years of age to receive medical cannabis. However, most of the medical literature has recommended against the use of cannabis in individuals younger than 25 years. At CannaMed Clinic, we still take a case-by-case approach to determine if medical cannabis may be appropriate.
