So, how exactly does the Medical Cannabis by Shoppers program work? Read on to find out some of the most commonly asked questions about purchasing medical cannabis through the online platform.
Can I get a medical cannabis prescription through Medical Cannabis by Shoppers?
No, you cannot get your prescription through Medical Cannabis by Shoppers; they do not have doctors or prescribing health care professionals through their program. Instead, they work with partners like CannaWay Clinic to provide patients access to medical professionals who develop a treatment program that is right for them. Once you have your prescription, a Patient Educator can register you with Medical Cannabis by Shoppers program. From there, you will have access to a variety of products at different price points from over 18 Canadian licensed cannabis producers.
Who can I talk to at Shoppers Drug Mart if I need help?
Once a patient is registered with Medical Cannabis by Shoppers, their treatment plan and product information is shared with the Shoppers Cannabis Care Team. This way if you need help placing an order or need a refresher on any information regarding your treatment plan, the Cannabis Care Team is available for support via phone or online.
