Frequently Asked Questions:

How will I know if medical cannabis is working?

You will notice an improvement in your quality of life and symptoms.

What am I allowed to purchase with my medical document (Rx)?

You are allowed to purchase any products from a Health Canada regulated Licensed Producer. This may be dried cannabis flower, cannabis oil, cannabis spray, cannabis capsules, etc, depending on the recommendations in your personalized care plan.

Why do I need to have access to more than one Licensed Producer (LP)?

It is important to have access to more than one LP in case your chosen LP has a product supply shortage.

Do I have to purchase from all LP’s?

No, you can purchase from just one LP if they have all the medical cannabis products that are part of your personalized care plan.

Do I need to use the daily prescribed amount?

No, please refer to personalized care plan / titration table. Your daily prescribed amount is more of a limit guideline rather than a recommended dose.

What happens if I miss a dose?

Do not worry if you miss a dose. Resume dosing as usual according to your personalized care plan.

Can I take too much?

In some cases, patients can consume too much THC. Please always refer to your personalized care plan to understand dosing or contact us.
