Testimonials

  • "MMC provided all the help I needed to get my medical marijuana covered by my auto insurer."
    Linda D
  • "After my car accident, I was in excruciating pain. The medications I was prescribed gave me insomnia and severe digestive issues. The staff at MMC understood my frustrations. Thanks to their knowledge and professionalism, I was able to access a high CBD strain of medical marijuana that continues to alleviate my pain and enable me to function in my day-to-day."
    Carl M
  • "My personal research into the benefits of cannabis began two years ago. Recently with MMC's help I obtained my medical marijuana card because of osteophyte (bone spurs) in my knees. Years of running & weight training. However, in the short time I started ingesting coconut cannabis oil, my knee pain has become minimal. I can bend to a squat position & not have an overwhelming burning sensation in my knees. Years of glucosamine did nothing. I tested cannabis and confirmed it works for me. I'm convinced it can benefit others..."

Frequently Asked Questions

We are always listening to our patients and physicians! If you have any comments or questions please CONTACT US so we can help you find the answers you are looking for.

What is medical marijuana?
Medical marijuana is a prescription narcotic. It is currently available in two different forms through Licensed Producers – dried flower and edible oils. The active ingredients in medical marijuana can vary depending on the strain, but Licensed Producers do measure both THC and CBD levels. THC and CBD are cannabinoids that have medicinal properties and may offer relief for a variety of conditions.
Who should avoid marijuana?
Patients with a history of heart disease, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or other disease of the airways, drug or alcohol abuse or dependence, or a serious mental disorder, such as schizophrenia should all consult their doctor before trying medical marijuana. You should also avoid marijuana if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, planning to get pregnant, or if you are allergic to any cannabinoid.
Am I eligible to receive medical marijuana?
To determine your eligibility for a medical marijuana prescription you will need to speak with your physician regarding your symptoms and diagnosis to determine if medical marijuana will be an appropriate treatment. Medical marijuana is considered an alternative treatment, so many physicians require other treatments to have been tried prior to considering medical marijuana. If your doctor is not open to prescribing medical marijuana, we are here to help you.
How do I get a medical document to receive medical marijuana?
The first step in acquiring your medical document is to talk to a doctor or nurse practitioner. They will help you determine your treatment needs, and how to complete a medical document to be sent to the licensed producer of your choice. We are also here to help you through the process!
What conditions can medical marijuana be prescribed for?
Medical marijuana can be prescribed for a wide range of conditions. Though the clinical data and research in support of medical marijuana is constantly changing and growing, the most common conditions treated with Cannabis include: Chronic Pain, Arthritis/Inflammatory conditions, Crohn’s Disease/Colitis/IBS, PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, Insomnia, Brain Injury, Wasting Syndrome (commonly associated with chemotherapy and other Cancer treatments), Multiple Sclerosis, HIV, and Epilepsy.
How long will it take to receive medical marijuana?
Shipping times vary with each Licensed Producer, but many offer expedited shipping options. In general, shipments will arrive within 1-3 business days from the date the order was processed.
How should I approach my doctor about medical marijuana?
Before approaching your physician about medical marijuana as a treatment, it is important to educate yourself about cannabis as a treatment and the potential therapeutic effects it can have for your symptoms as well as the side effects associated with it. Many physicians are unaware of the potential therapeutic uses for medical marijuana, which can make them reluctant to prescribe it. If you find your doctor is closed to the idea of medical marijuana, we are here to help you!
Can I carry medical marijuana with me on trips outside Canada?
You cannot carry your medical marijuana outside of Canada, even with a prescription. As marijuana laws vary greatly between countries, there can be severe consequences for attempting to leave or return with marijuana.
What are the side effects of marijuana use?
Side effects of marijuana vary among strains and patients. In general, the side effects range from drowsiness and loss of focus to agitation which can lead to fear and paranoia. Such effects are temporary and go away within a few hours. Smoking marijuana carries many of the same risks as smoking cigarettes and is not advisable. Because of the adverse health effects of smoking it is not the recommended method of consumption.
How does one take medical marijuana?
There are many methods of ingesting marijuana including eating/drinking, sublingually, and vaporizing. Each method can be effective for treating different symptoms in each patient. We are here to assist you in finding what will work best for you.
Is there a minimum age to participate in the ACMPR program?
The current regulations only allow for those 18 years of age or older. Many physicians will not prescribe to those under the age of 25 due to the effects that marijuana can have on a developing brain. However, there are extenuating circumstances we will take into consideration. If your children have serious conditions that may benefit from medical marijuana you should speak to your doctor about obtaining a referral for medical marijuana, or contact us.
How should I approach my doctor about medical marijuana?
The best approach is to be as informed as possible about your potential treatments, their side effects, and what you want to get out of your treatment. Using our website as a resource can help you achieve this, and being open and honest with your doctor is always the best approach. If you find your doctor is closed to the idea of medical marijuana, we are here to help you as best we can!
Can you use marijuana while on other medication?
Some pain medications have been proven to be more effective in combination with marijuana. However, with all medication, different combinations can have unpredictable effects. You should always consult your doctor before combining any medications.
Is marijuana legal?
Medical marijuana is legal when a patient purchases it from their Licensed Producer with their prescription. Dispensaries/Compassion Centres and marijuana for recreational purposes is illegal.
What’s the difference between Sativa and Indica?
There are two basic types of Cannabis plants, Sativa and Indica. Sativas are known for their stimulating, uplifting effects. Indicas have a more sedative or relaxing effect. Many strains available through Licensed Producers are hybrids of the two types, but are categorized as either a Sativa dominant or Indica dominant strain depending on the ancestry of the strain.
How much marijuana do you need to take, and how often do you take it?
Your doctor can help you determine the right dosage for your symptoms. The average use of marijuana for medical purposes is from 1 to 3 grams per day, but this varies depending on symptoms.
How do I store my medical marijuana?
Marijuana is to be stored in the original containers that it is shipped to you in. These containers should be kept in a secured, dry, cool place. Many patients choose to store their medical marijuana in a lockable cupboard, or safe to keep it out of the hands of children and others. It is important to make sure that all edible products are clearly labeled to ensure that they are not mistaken as unmedicated products.
