Schedule an appointment with a medical doctor today and learn more about what types of medical cannabis might be right for you.

In order to purchase medical cannabis through a medical platform, you will need a medical prescription from a medical doctor. Appointments take place over the phone, and are covered by Alberta Health Services.

Your doctor will ask you a series of questions to determine your candidacy for medical cannabis. If you are an appropriate candidate, your doctor will then write you a prescription and one of our educators will put you in touch with a licensed producer so that you can purchase the appropriate product for your needs.

Much of the research supporting the use of medical cannabis is still relatively new, so some doctors may be reluctant to prescribe it. The best ways to increase your chances of getting a prescription for medical cannabis are to provide documentation supporting your experience and be honest about your medical history so that your doctor can make an informed decision.

During your appointment, talk to your doctor about:

  • How your condition or its symptoms impact your life
  • The other therapies you’ve tried (and how they may have failed to provide adequate results)
  • Your plan for using medical cannabis responsibly (including how you plan to consume it)
