As CBD is not available on the recreational market in Canada, a medical recommendation must be obtained prior to purchasing CBD products from a Licensed Producer.
Why Choose Medical Cannabis?
Both medical and recreational cannabis are now legal in Canada under The Cannabis Act, and millions of Canadians are taking advantage.
When comparing cannabis use for medical and recreational purposes, it’s vital to keep in mind that each person’s preferences and intentions will ultimately determine how much cannabis is consumed, how it is dosed, and what effects are expected.
Using medical cannabis is similar to any other medication, and when guided by a medical professional, can yield positive results in terms of symptom management and improvement in patients’ overall quality of life. That said, cannabis is a personalized medication and success in symptom relief can rely on a number of factors that a medical professional can help provide guidance for including cannabinoids utilized, strength, ingestion method, dosing times, and more.
When used with medical guidance, cannabis has been shown to have a wide range of benefits including pain management, anti-inflammatory, and as an aid for insomnia. It is also highly acclaimed for its capacity to prevent seizures and help manage the symptoms associated with cancer.
Canadians who have a prescription for medical cannabis obtain benefits over recreational users that include an increased personal carrying limit, wide selection of CBD products, tax deductible medication, compassion pricing, and more.
Fort McMurray Cannabis Laws
Provincial laws in Alberta dictate that recreational cannabis may be consumed in designated smoking areas, however many municipalities have tightened consumption laws and only allow cannabis to be smoked in private areas. Medical cannabis may be consumed anywhere smoking tobacco is permitted, regardless of stricter municipal consumption laws.
Additionally, provincial laws allow recreational cannabis users to grow four plants per household, however medical cannabis users may register to grow more plants based on their medical cannabis recommendation.
