Did you know that there are benefits to getting a medical cannabis prescription?
For many of our customers, they’re surprised to discover that a medical doctor can specialize in cannabis. This means that a medical professional can overlook a patient’s cannabis use for a condition such as anxiety, chronic pain, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, and such. So how can this type of prescription help you? Here’s how:
- You can discus your health condition with a formal medical doctor and they can assist you with individualized dosing.
- A cannabis medical doctor can determine interactions if you’re currently on medical prescriptions. They can also discuss how to implement delivery methods such as sublingual oils, capsules, flower for smoking/vaping, etc.
- You can inquire about growing cannabis at home and get a prescription for this, too. (You can get permission to grow 25-450 plants! In Ontario, each household can only legally grow four cannabis plants.) If you’re interested in growing cannabis for your medical condition, click here to learn about our authorization program.
- You get to write off formal cannabis prescriptions on your taxes.
Unfortunately, it can be difficult to obtain this prescription, as doctors who prescribe cannabis are limited. But at Canna Relief, we can connect you to a cannabis medical doctor through a referral. If you’re interested in a cannabis prescription and you live in Ontario, fill in this form to see if you’re eligible.
