There is no referral required for patients who are seeking a medical cannabis recommendation in Winnipeg. In order to begin the process visit Apollo Cannabis Clinic 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 Winnipeg?
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 apollocannabis.ca 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, as opposed to recreational cannabis users who must consume the product in a private residence in the province of Manitoba. 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 Manitoba.
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.

Winnipeg is the largest city in the province of Manitoba and is also the capital city.
Winnipeg is located at the forks of the Assiniboine and Red River of the North and was named after Lake Winnipeg, which is the Western Cree word for “muddy water”. Winnipeg was a trading centre for aboriginal peoples long before it was settled by Europeans, due to the waterways that made the area easily accessible.
Nowadays, Winnipeg boasts a diverse, multi-cultural population with significant Scottish, German, Ukrainian, Irish, French and Aboriginal communities. The population of Winnipeg also represents 54.9% of the population of Manitoba.
