In order to be considered for a prescription, the patient needs to be at least 25 years of age and have an officially diagnosed qualifying medical condition for which they have already undergone treatment. People under age 25 may be assessed for medical cannabis treatment if they suffer from a severe chronic illness and conventional treatment provides insufficient relief. Medical cannabis will not be prescribed if you are pregnant or attempting pregnancy. Diagnoses of schizophrenia or psychosis may limit medical cannabis treatment options.
There is no cost to the patient for seeing one of our physicians or experts in clinic. Associated costs are covered by Provincial Health Care.
New users are introduced to medical cannabis at low limits in order to best determine what dosage is best for them. Dosage amounts can be discussed with the patient and one of our customer care specialists but is ultimately at the discretion of the physician.
The patient’s chosen licensed producer will contact Canheal to verify dosage and patient information. Medical cannabis is then shipped to the patient’s home address. If the patient has no home address, the clinic address may be used.
