Medical cannabis is made up of the leaves, flowers, and buds of the Cannabis sativa plant. The flower portions of the cannabis plant contain the richest concentrations of terpenes and cannabinoids which are the most desirable compounds of the plant for medical and recreational cannabis users.
YES Health Canada has approved the use of cannabis as a legal medicine since 2001, and there are 35 Health Canada Licensed Producers (LP's) who sell and mail it to Canadians.
Medicinal cannabis can be used in a variety of ways. It can be vaporized, consumed in edibles or in concentrated oil. It can also be smoked although this method is not recommended. The intensity and duration of the effects of cannabis can vary depending on several factors, including how you consume it, the amount you use and how your body responds to the active ingredients.
The same way your current insurance covers prescriptions. The NIHB plan by Health Canada has a comprehensive list of products covered and more are being added all the time. IcMD and its team complete all applications for you to your private insurance or Health Canada NIHB plan. If your private insurance or coverage under Health Canada NIHB plan does not cover the product then you would have to pay the cost of the medication only.
To qualify for a medical cannabis prescription you must be at least 18 years of age. Patients under 18 can be assisted with parental supervision. There are several pediatric compassion programs available but do require a parent to be involved in the process. Contact us for more information firstname.lastname@example.org
You may travel freely within Canada. You cannot travel outside of Canada with your prescription. Medical patients may bring their product in their carry on for domestic flights. Please verify with your airline as regulations do change.
