What is a Medical Document?

What is a Medical Document?

Your Medical Document (MD) is the document provided to you by a clinic or health care practitioner, entitling you to access medical cannabis. Clients registered via a Medical Document are able to access cannabis products, with the exception of clones & seeds.

While sometimes referred to as a prescription, a Medical Document is technically in its own class of healthcare documentation, as cannabis alone has not been assigned a Drug Identification Number by Health Canada. Please note that this may affect how you claim cannabis on your insurance or taxes - you may reach out to us if you need assistance in completing those processes.

An MD, by law, must contain a signed statement, indicating a specific daily gram allotment, as well as a timeframe for which the document is valid.

Medical Documents can be valid for a period of up to one year, but can be as short as a few months - be sure to book your follow-up appointments well in advance to prevent a possible lapse in your medical registration!

Once you have been issued your Medical Document, you may have your clinic or health care practitioner submit it to us. You may also submit your own original Medical Document, if it is in your possession, via secure fax.

Once we have your Medical Document, and your completed Registration Application form, we are able to register you immediately!
