How do I access medical cannabis and get a prescription in Canada?

Through the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR), Canadian residents can access medical cannabis from Emerald – a federally licensed producer. Due to this, you must acquire a Medical Document (section 129) – which is similar to a prescription – from your doctor or health care practitioner. Both your Medical Document and a Registration Application need to be submitted to Emerald to access medical cannabis. To learn if medical marijuana is right for you, speak to your physician.
