Canada’s First Mobile Cannabis Clinic

Canadians will soon have a chance to access medical marijuana recommendations via a Mobile Cannabis Clinic that will be making its way through the country starting June 6th of this year. The Mobile Cannabis Clinic was created in order to ensure that all Canadians are able to find out whether or not they are eligible for the Canada Health medical marijuana program, without having to find a physician ready to recommend them.

“Educating patients about medical cannabis and how they can access it is an important priority for Tilray,” says Philippe Lucas, Vice President of Patient Research and Advocacy. “The Mobile Cannabis Clinic will allow us to share this important information with Canadians in various cities across the country and help connect patients with physicians who can address their questions.”

Since there are still many doctors who feel they don’t know enough about the plant or how to best supervise a patient’s use of it and there is no list of doctors who are prepared to work with medical marijuana, many patients either go without or self-medicate and purchase it outside legal means.

The mobile unit would make stops in major cities and would be on a walk-in basis so anyone can come in and learn more, find out if they qualify and even order their first medical marijuana.

“We’re not actually selling cannabis on site, that’s different from the current dispensaries. In this case, patients will be talking to physicians and being signed up to the MMPR — in other words, getting federal authorization to use cannabis through the Health Canada program,” he said (Tilray Vice-President Phillippe Lucas).

“After they’re registered, they’ll be able to order cannabis through the authorized system in Canada. We ship cannabis anywhere in Canada in 48 hours for $5.”
