No. Simcoe Holistic Health will work with you to acquire all information required and complete a medical assessment and file for review of your medical condition prior to physician assessment.

Simcoe Holistic Health will provide you education and recommendations on the best course of treatment for your conditions. Vaporization is the safest route for taking your medicine.

Vaporizing, or treating through a nebulizer is a process where a device (vaporizer) heats up the marijuana to deliver a medicated vapour of the marijuana. Receiving your medication through a vaporizer will deliver the highest concentration of the medicine over smoking it or any other forms.

Health Canada requirements only allow licensed producers to ship dried marijuana leaves to patients. LP’s are unable to send oils, extracts or able to send edibles.

A licensed producer is able to ship to you the lesser of 30x your daily amount or 150 grams.

Example:
▪ 3 grams/day is the amount prescribed by your physician
▪ X 30 days
▪ = 90 grams is the most you can have shipped
Or:
▪ 6 grams/day is the amount prescribed by your physician
▪ X 30 days
▪ = 180 grams. You would be able to have 150 grams shipped to you.

There is no definitive answer to this question. Cost varies by strain and license producer. There are a variety of options to help each particular condition we are seeking to treat coupled with options from licensed producers. Many licensed producers offer a compassionate pricing program to help those on disability or other contributing factors. Simcoe Holistic Health can help understand the different programs available and present you with options.

The average patient’s daily consumption ranges from 1.0 – 3.0 grams per day of medical marijuana. Costs can vary from under $2.00 for a trimming to over $15 per gram, for an organic product. Simcoe Holistic Health will help find the best solution for you and describe the associated costs you may incur (shipping, accessories, vaporizer, etc.)

Simcoe Holistic Health will work with you and your health care provider to ensure that the selected treatment plan is the most appropriate for you. Each individual patient is evaluated on its own presentation. In generality, patients should be over the age of 25 to consider medicinal marijuana, but Simcoe Holistic Health will evaluate younger patients based on past medical history and current medical conditions, which treatment is sought. While all cases will be considered individually, generally patients should be over the age of 25.

The Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR) regulates the medical marijuana supply in several ways. Like pharmacy grade pharmaceuticals, Licensed Producers must comply and demonstrate a high level of quality assurance in their products. You are not able to guarantee the product and product contents/efficacy with non-regulated products. For your safety, it is important to acquire your medicinal marijuana from a licensed producer as prescribed by your health care provider. Your medical document or “prescription” does not provide you legal coverage for acquiring marijuana not from a licensed producer. You are required to keep your “prescription bottle” from your licensed producer or the shipping document as your proof to be in legal possession of medicinal marijuana.

YES – The Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR) were created by Health Canada and enacted by the Canadian Government.
