Medical cannabis has been shown to be effective in alleviating symptoms for a variety of conditions. It is commonly used for the management of various types of inflammatory pain, and has helped to improve symptoms including (but not limited to) sleep issues, nausea and neurological conditions. Many patients benefit from medical management with regards to sleep issues in particular; sleep is restorative and imperative for the healing process at the cellular level.

Please consult the Health Canada website for more information.

The cost of medical cannabis is set by individual Licensed Producers (LPs), and prices for both oil and dried cannabis vary. Please contact us directly to discuss the costs of a treatment plan and to explore possibilities for coverage assistance.

Our online appointment booking system shows all upcoming appointments available. We prioritize critical patients, and may be able to conduct your initial consultation within 24 hours of receiving your completed intake form.

Medical cannabis patients are primarily prescribed either dried cannabis or cannabis oil. Dried cannabis can be used in cooking or added to foods, or inhaled using a vaporizer device. Cannabis oil can be consumed orally, either under the tongue or mixed with food or a beverage.

Our practitioners will discuss the appropriate mode of consumption for particular ailments as part of your initial consultation, and this recommendation will be reflected in your treatment plan.

COMMON MEDICAL CONDITIONS


Here are some of the most common medical conditions cannabis is prescribed for:

PTSD

Anxiety

Pain Management

Insomnia

Epilepsy

Arthritis

Eating Disorders

Cancer Symptoms

PTSD

(Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder)

While research is still ongoing to learn more about how cannabis works within our bodies to help those with PTSD, some of the latest research using brain imaging suggests that patients with PTSD have an abundance of cannabinoid receptors but produce few endogenous cannabinoids to lock into them. This means that supplementing the body with plant-based cannabinoids like THC might help some brain processes function as normal.

Anxiety

More and more people are turning to cannabis in hopes of managing anxiety or generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). A recent study found that cannabis can significantly reduce self-reported levels of depression, anxiety, and stress in the short term.

Although scientific research is still ongoing, there are anecdotal and new scientific reports of cannabis creating a calming experience that temporarily relieves symptoms of anxiety for many people.

Pain Management

Pain is the number one reason people seek help with cannabis medicines. Chronic pain seriously interferes with the quality of life for many patients. Those who receive cannabis treatment report that while it doesn’t completely take away the pain, they are no longer preoccupied with the pain and are able to manage it. In cases of inflammatory pain, cannabis can positively impact the inflammation that leads to pain. Most patients can significantly decrease or eliminate their use of other pain medications as a result.

Insomnia

Whether you have a sleep disorder or you’re having difficulty sleeping after a stressful day, cannabis might be a treatment for you. The analgesic properties of cannabis can provide some relief for those with chronic pain, while the anti-anxiety properties can soothe a stressed out mind and body.

This treatment is not right for everyone though. Talk to one of our medical professionals to find out if it is right for you.

Epilepsy

Early evidence from laboratory studies, anecdotal reports, and small clinical studies over a number of years suggest that the cannabidiol (CBD) from cannabis could potentially help control seizures. The research in this field is still ongoing, but in recent years, a number of studies have shown the benefit of specific plant-based CBD products in treating specific groups of people with epilepsy who have not responded to traditional therapies.

Talk to one of our medical professionals to learn more.

Arthritis

For people living with the chronic pain associated with Arthritis, the options for medication to assist with pain management are limited, and each has its drawbacks. For these people, medical cannabis offers a potential alternative to traditional pharmaceuticals such as NSAIDs, acetaminophen and opioids. Some patients have found that cannabis can positively impact the inflammation that leads to pain, helping patients reduce other pain medications as a result.

Eating Disorders

Cannabis has already been shown to positively affect mood and feeding behavior. A recent study showed the role played by the brain’s own endogenous cannabis neurotransmitter system, called the endocannabinoid system in those with eating disorders. In people with either anorexia or bulimia, the normal function of the endocannabinoid system becomes impaired. The regulation of appetite and feeding behaviors are complex phenomenon involving our brain, peripheral organs and the numerous pathways that connect them. Fortunately, there is increasing evidence of positive results using cannabis treatment to help.

Cancer Symptoms

Using cannabis as part of a comprehensive cancer treatment plan can help those living with cancer or undergoing cancer treatment in a variety of ways. Cannabis may help you relax and give you a sense of well-being while helping reduce side effects of common cancer medicines or therapies. Research has shown a clear connection to the reduction of nausea and vomiting while helping to increase appetite. Others have shown the positive results in reducing inflammation and pain, aiding in restoring a healthy sleep cycle, and lessening fatigue while undergoing cancer treatment.
