How Do I Get Medical Cannabis In Montreal?
Apollo’s services are covered by the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec and accessible to all residents of the province, providing convenience and accessibility to remote areas. All appointments are conducted over a secure video conferencing network from the comfort of home.
There is no referral required for patients who are seeking a medical cannabis recommendation in Montreal. In order to begin the process visit Apollo Cannabis at apollocannabis.ca and fill out the contact form. Once completed an Apollo Cannabis Clinic representative will be in contact to schedule an initial appointment.
The Apollo doctor will make a medical cannabis recommendation which includes daily dosing and specific products that will benefit the user. Once the recommendation has been made individuals will register with one, or several, Licensed Producers (LPs) of their choosing.
A Licensed Producer is a cannabis company who is registered to sell medical cannabis to medical cannabis users and does not offer recreational cannabis that is available to the public. All orders for medical cannabis are completed online, through a LP, and will be shipped directly to the individual’s doorstep.
How Do I Get CBD Oil In Montreal?
CBD offers a unique alternative to traditional cannabis-based therapies as it is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid which has the potential to act on a number of symptoms including pain, inflammation, mood, and anxiety. Visit Apollo Cannabis Clinic to set up an appointment with an Apollo Doctor to determine whether CBD is right for you.
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?
Medical cannabis users have more leeway when it comes to where cannabis may be consumed. Medical users are allowed to consume cannabis anywhere tobacco is permitted, regardless of municipal bylaws which may restrict the consumption of recreational cannabis. Medical cannabis users may also possess a higher amount of cannabis, based on their medical recommendation, and are allowed to carry tinctures, edibles and CBD products.
Medical cannabis users may register to grow their own medicine or designate someone to grow it on their behalf. This is contrary to recreational users who are not allowed to grow their own cannabis in Quebec.
Medical users also have a greater selection of cannabis products to choose from. Licensed Producers offer products that are not available on the recreational market, such as CBD oil, tinctures and decarboxylated flowers. Licensed Producers will also be able to guide patients towards appropriate products for their medical needs.
Finally, all medical cannabis purchases are tax deductible as a medical expense.
Montreal Cannabis Laws
Provincial laws in Quebec dictate that consumption of recreational cannabis is allowed in designated public smoking areas, however some municipalities have tightened consumption restrictions and banned cannabis consumption in public. Medical cannabis users may consume cannabis anywhere tobacco is permitted.
Additionally, provincial laws do not allow recreational cannabis users to grow their own cannabis plants, whereas medical users may register to grow their own plants.
