Frequently Asked Questions About Medical Marijuana
If eligible, how do I get medical marijuana?
We review your referral package and accompanying medical documentation after you send it in. Patients that are assessed by a physician and deemed eligible for medical cannabis receive a medical document, which can be sent to one of the Health Canada approved Licensed Producers of medical cannabis. Patients place orders directly with their licensed producer, and all orders are shipped via courier to the patient’s address. Our partners GrowWise Health can help you choose the Licensed Producer that is right for you.
What forms of medical marijuana are available to me?
In addition to dried marijuana, Cannabis oil (otherwise known as thc oil or cbd oil) is also available to patients under the ACMPR. You can also make cannabis oil from your dried marijuana.
Do I get a medical marijuana card?
All orders from Licensed Producers will come in a bottle with an accompanying label. Some LP’s do include a client card as a courtesy, although clients should always carry their medical cannabis in a bottle with an accompanying label from the Licensed Producer.
What conditions may medical cannabis be appropriate for?
Medical cannabis has been shown to be appropriate for a wide range of conditions and symptoms. To see just a few examples, visit GrowWise Health’s Benefits of Medical Cannabis Page.
A new dispensary just opened up around the block in Toronto. Should I go there to access my medical cannabis?
White Cedar operates within the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations, Canada’s legal medical cannabis system. Medical cannabis under the ACMPR is accurately dosed and stringently tested to ensure it is free of contaminants.
