FAQ's for Canada medical marijuana document
Why do I need a medical document for cannabis?
You need a medical document in order to purchase cannabis from a Licensed Producer. Your medical document needs to be approved by a licensed Practitioner when you have an in-person or Telehealth consultation.
What are the benefits of getting a medical prescription instead of just buying recreationally?
There are many reasons to obtain a medical document to buy medical cannabis in Canada. Overall, medical patients vs. recreational buyers:
- Pay less taxes
- Have a wider selection of flowers and oils
- Access a more consistent supply chain
If I already have a medical prescription, do I need to use this HelloMD Telehealth service?
No, you do not. Our service is to obtain a new medical document or to renew an expired one.
If you already have an active prescription you can switch Licensed Producers. You’ll need to contact your current LP and have your medical document transferred to the new one.
How long is my online consult with the Practitioner?
A typical consult takes between 20-30 minutes. Please be prepared to have your consult in a private, well-lit space, away from distraction. Your Practitioner will also want to discuss any medications you may be on and your prior medical history.
Will I receive advice about cannabis from my Practitioner?
Yes. Our Practitioners will guide you in determining if cannabis is the right for you. From the privacy of your own home or office, ask all of your cannabis questions and be sure you’re getting sound medical advice.
What do I do now that I’ve had my consultation?
We will send your medical document directly to the Licensed Producer discussed you’ve selected. You’ll need to register for an account with your selected LP and they should contact you when your account has been approved for purchases.
How do I know if I will be approved for medicinal cannabis?
Cannabis can be used to treat a number of conditions; however, it’s not guaranteed you will be approved. Cannabis use is not always recommended to patients under the age of 25, those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, or those who are seeking cannabis as a first attempt to treat symptoms.
Will my insurance cover the cost of medical cannabis?
Some insurance carriers will cover the cost of cannabis. We suggest checking with your carrier to see if your plan covers it, and making sure your symptoms are on the list of pre-approved conditions.
