The passing of the Cannabis Act paved the way for cannabis legalization in Canada in October 2018. It was indeed a definitive moment of celebration for both recreational and medical users alike.
However, the Act also called for the implementation of a completely new system which regulates the production, distribution and sale of cannabis. Because of this, a number of Canadians have found that their usual go-to dispensaries have closed down due to new federal and provincial laws, even stores that were formerly municipally-regulated. Across most of the country, physical stores have been slow to open, and those are have been plagued with stock shortages, limited selection and higher-than-expected prices.
All of this can be exceptionally frustrating to medical cannabis users who rely on ease of access to combat a variety of health issues. But here's the good news:
Medical cannabis is available online
In Canada, the only way to purchase lab-tested medical cannabis from licensed producers is to shop online. One major advantage is that this can be done from the comfort of one’s own home (a particular advantage to those facing harsh northern winters).
The first step is to get a Medical Document so that you can shop for cannabis. This can be done through one’s own doctor, should they be willing to offer a recommendation to purchase. Another fast and easy way to receive your Medical Document is through NamasteMD.com, an integrated telemedicine portal that provides secure online access to a nurse practitioner who can assist you.
Fast and easy delivery
The NamasteMD team can forward your documents directly to our CannMart team, where our selection of cannabis products is growing. CannMart has also partnered with delivery services like Pineapple Express Delivery, who can offer same-day services in the Greater Toronto Area. Otherwise, CannMart offers next day delivery through Purolator, or service within one to three days via Canada Post XpressPost.
