Dosing remains highly individualized and relies to a great extent on titration. Prior cannabis experience can guide starting dosages (self-medicating patients), but some general considerations when speaking with your healthcare practitioner are:
- Start low, go slow
- Preference for delivery of medicine
- Prior cannabis experience (tolerance)
- Lung capacity
- Pharmaceuticals being taken
Every Canadian has the right to medicate and your workplace must accommodate this. Here at Karthia Medical Group, we help human resource departments at workplaces write their policies regarding medical cannabis therapy. We also assist with implementing plans that allow the patient to medicate freely while eliminating liability from the employer’s side.
Medical cannabis patients are permitted to possess one month’s supply of cannabis or 150 grams – whichever is less.
The label on your container of medical cannabis and/or the documentation that your cannabis is sent with proves that you are legally permitted to possess your cannabis.
You are legally allowed to travel within Canada with your medical cannabis but we recommend contacting your airline to confirm what their exact policy is. It is not advised to ever attempt leaving Canada with your medicinal cannabis at any point.
Cannabis should always be kept out of reach of any children and pets and kept in a cool, dry area.
