Medical Cannabis Prescription
A medical cannabis prescription is a legal authorization from a licensed Canadian Medical Doctor authorizing an individual to obtain and use cannabis legally for medical purposes in the country of Canada.
In the Canadian constitution, the license allows for the individual license holder to use any products derived from the cannabis plant including, dried flowers, concentrates, oils, and other products.
While cannabis has been legalized for recreational use in Canada, it is important to note that there are still are some strong benefits to obtain a medical cannabis license. The first is that you will get a personalized medical cannabis treatment plan for your specific condition, symptoms, goals, and level of comfort with cannabis. This can not be said for the legal recreational market.
Another benefit is that some insurance companies are now recognizing the medical benefits of medical cannabis to treat such illnesses as multiple sclerosis, HIV-AIDS, cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, and palliative care.
Having a medical cannabis prescription allows the user to freely use cannabis in a public space without the worry of fine. It is important to note that patients will still have to abide by rules and laws that obtain to “Smoke Free” areas that restrict smoking or vaporizing cannabis in enclosed public places including some outdoor spaces.
