FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are there any age limits on who you will see?
Not at all. At Weedwell™ we currently have patients from 3 years old to 100 years old and are open to seeing both younger and older than that!
Do I need a referral from my doctor?
We do not require a referral from a doctor, that said, a referral is always great for us to have. It establishes a working relationship with your current care provider and can help to ensure that our team best understands your medical conditions.
Do you provide a license so I can grow my own cannabis?
We do not provide a license for clients to grow their own cannabis at this time.
What if my doctor doesn't "believe" in Cannabis?
Some clients choose to keep their use of medicinal cannabis private and do not share this information with their doctors. We will only share information with your doctors if you want us to. We do, however believe that more and more doctors are becoming comfortable with their patient’s use of medical cannabis as they see positive results and get more familiar with the endocannabinoid system and how cannabis can be used to affect it. Remember, it is highly likely that your doctor received no training at all about the endocannabinoid system as it was only discovered in the 1990’s!! We feel the best way for doctors to start to feel comfortable with cannabis is for our patients to share their experiences, good or bad, with their own doctors.
Can you work with my current doctors?
Absolutely! This is an area on which we pride ourselves. We are dedicated to ensuring the best care for you and this involves including your current specialists and family doctors, so that they understand our care plan and goals. It is also important that doctors learn about some of the potential cannabis related drug interactions that can occur with medications you may be taking. Part of our obligation is to share what we have learned with others.
Do I have to come in to the office?
Not at all! We have a secure video system that you can use from your home or work computer or even from your cell phone. It is as easy to use as clicking on a link just before your appointment time.
How do I get an appointment?
From various locations on this website, you will be directed to a secure page requesting your email. Be assured this is not shared with anyone and is used only to assist you with booking your appointment and for communication from us. Simply follow the instructions and you will be taken through an intake questionnaire which you can complete in about 5 minutes. You can even book your own appointment time. Of course, if you have any issues and want to speak to a real person…we can do that too.
Is there a fee to me to see the doctor?
No. There is no fee to see the doctor. There are no other associated fees. The visit with the doctor is covered under your provincial health care plan.
How much does treatment with cannabis cost?
This is a great question. Cost obviously depends on the amount, but also the type of cannabis medicine that you consume. Many clients spend between 75-150$ per month. Some Licensed Producers have special prices for children, others have discounts for first responders. It is our responsibility to guide our clients to the Licensed Producers with the best product and price, to suit their needs.
