Thousands of Canadians are federally licensed to possess and use medical marijuana through Health Canada. Medical marijuana is a proven safe, virtually side effect-free alternative to all pharmaceuticals. Different strains affect different illnesses. We want to help find the right one for you.
Who is eligible to use medical marijuana? The regulations outline two categories of people who can apply to possess marijuana for medical purposes.
This category is comprised of any symptoms treated within the context of providing compassionate end-of-life care; or the symptoms associated with the specified medical conditions listed in the schedule to the Regulations, namely:
Applicants must provide a declaration from a medical practitioner to support their application.
This category is for applicants who have debilitating symptom(s) of medical condition(s), other than those described in Category 1.
Under Category 2, persons with debilitating symptoms can apply to obtain an Authorization to Possess dried marijuana for medical purposes, if a specialist confirms the diagnosis and that conventional treatments have failed or judged inappropriate to relieve symptoms of the medical condition. While an assessment of the applicant’s case by a specialist is required, the treating physician, whether or not a specialist, can sign the medical declaration.
You can check eligibility requirements directly on Health Canada’s Site
This category is for applicants who hold a current ATP from a Licensed Producer or have a MMAR (pink paper from Health Canada) valid after April 1st, 2014.
