Patient agrees by initialing the following
I understand that medical marijuana is a medicine used in treating the suffering caused by serious and debilitating medical conditions. Serious and debilitating medical conditionsinclude: Cancer, HIV, Nausea, Arthritis, Chronic Pain, Glaucoma, Cachexia, Seizures and persistent muscle spasms. Additionally, medical marijuana is used in the treatment of other chronic or persistent medical symptoms that: Substantially limits the ability of the person to conduct one or more major life activities Other conditions for which marijuana provides relief If not alleviated, may cause harm to the patient's safety or physical or mental health.
I have been advised that the use of medical marijuana may affect my coordination, motor skills and cognition in ways that could impair my ability to drive and agree not to operate heavy machinery, drive or engage in potentially hazardous activities.
I understand that side effects may occur while I am taking medical marijuana. Side effects of medical marijuana can include but are not limited to: Euphoria, difficulty in completing complex tasks, low blood pressure, sedation, dysphoria, alterations in the perception of time and space, dizziness, anxiety, confusion, impairment to short term memory, inability to concentrate, suppression of the body's immune system, increased talkativeness, impairment of motor skills, delayed reaction time, loss of physical coordination, paranoia psychotic symptoms and overeating.
I understand that some patients become dependent on marijuana. This means they experience withdrawal symptoms when they stop using marijuana. Signs of withdrawal symptoms can include: Feelings of depression, sadness, irritability, insomnia, restlessness, agitation, loss of appetite, trouble concentrating, sleep disturbances and unusual tiredness.
I understand that chronic use of medical marijuana can lead to laryngitis, bronchitis and general apathy.
I understand that although marijuana does not produce a specific psychosis, other possibilities exist such as exacerbating schizophrenia in persons predisposed to that disorder.
I agree to tell the attending physician if I have ever had symptoms of depression, been psychotic, attempted suicide or had any other mental problems. I also agree to tell the attending physician if I have ever been prescribed or taken medicine for any of the conditions stated above. Furthermore, I understand that the attending physician does not suggest nor condone that I cease treatment and or medication that stabilize my mental or physical condition.
I understand there are few known interactions between marijuana and medications other than herbs. However, very few interactions between herbs and medications have been studied. I agree to tell my attending physician if I am using any herbs, supplements or other medications.
I am aware that the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (CDSA) prohibits possession, trafficking, import and export, and production of controlled substances, including marijuana, unless authorized by regulations. Neither the MMPR nor any other Health Canada regulations authorize licensed producers to provide marijuana for medical purposes through a storefront.
I am aware that dried marijuana is not an approved drug or medicine in Canada. The Government of Canada does not endorse the use of marijuana, but the courts have required reasonable access to a legal source of marijuana when authorized by a healthcare practitioner.
I understand that Under the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations, an authorized healthcare practitioner includes physicians in all provinces and territories, and nurse practitioners in provinces and territories where supporting dried marijuana for medical purposes is permitted under their scope of practice.
I understand some users might develop a tolerance to marijuana. This means higher and higher doses are required to achieve the same benefit. It is recommended for patients to have an intermission with the drug for at least 3 weeks every 3-4 months. If I think I may be developing a tolerance to marijuana, I will notify the attending physician.
I understand the benefits and risks associated with the use of marijuana are not fully understood and that the use of marijuana may involve risks that have not been identified. I accept such risk.
I understand should respiratory problems or other ill effects be experienced in association with the use of medical marijuana, I agree to discontinue its use and report any such problems or effects to the attending physician. Although smoking marijuana has not been linked to lung cancer, smoking marijuana can cause respiratory harm, such as bronchitis. Many researchers agree that marijuana smoke contains known carcinogens (chemicals that can cause cancer) and that smoking marijuana may increase the risk of respiratory diseases and cancers in the lungs, mouth and tongue. I have been advised that medical marijuana smoke contain chemicals known as tars that may be harmful to my health.
I understand that there are many methods of intake that substantially reduce the harmful effects of smoking such as vaporizers, edibles, drops, etc.
I understand Marijuana varies in potency. The effects of marijuana can also vary with the delivery system. Estimating the proper marijuana dosage is very important. Symptoms of marijuana overdose include, but are not limited to nausea, vomiting, hacking cough, abnormal heart rhythms, numbness in the limbs, anxiety attacks and incapacitation.
If I start taking medical marijuana, I agree to tell my attending physician if I: Start to feel sad or have crying spells, lose interest in my normal activities, have changes in my normal sleeping patterns, become more irritable than usual, lose my appetite, become unusually tired, withdraw from family and friends, or any other side effect that is not to your liking.
I agree that if I am a female patient that I will contact my attending physician if I become or are thinking about becoming pregnant. I acknowledge that the use of medical marijuana creates pass-through problems to a fetus during pregnancy and to a baby during breastfeeding.
I understand that using marijuana while under the influence of alcohol is not recommended. Additional side effects may become present when using both alcohol and marijuana.
I should not be driving a vehicle while using marijuana and that I can get a DUI for driving under the influence.
I am aware that medical marijuana is not regulated by the Food and Drug Regulations.Studies supporting the safety and efficacy of cannabis for therapeutic purposes are limited and do not meet the standard required by the Food and Drug Regulations for marketed drugs in Canada, and therefore may contain unknown quantities of active ingredients, impurities and or contaminants.
I am not permitted to smoke within 1,000 feet of any daycare or school. If I reside near those institutions, I must use my medicine within the privacy of my own home.
I agree to follow up with the attending physician with supporting medical records pertaining to my medical conditions.
I understand the attending physician, staff and or representatives of Marijuana Access Canada are neither providing, dispensing nor encouraging me to obtain medical marijuana. I also acknowledge that the attending physician, staff and or representatives of Marijuana Access Canada will NOT be providing or discussing information regarding dispensary, co-op, delivery service or any other way to obtain marijuana.

I affirm that I have a serious medical condition that negatively affects my quality of life. I have found or am interested in finding out whether or not medical marijuana provides substantial relief and improvement in my condition.
I understand that the cannabis plant is not regulated by Food and Drug Regulations and therefore may contain unknown quantities of active ingredients, impurities and/or contaminants. I understand the potential risks associated with an elevated daily consumption of medical marijuana including risks with respect to the effect on my cardiovascular and pulmonary systems and psychomotor performance, risks associated with the long-term use of marijuana, as well as potential drug dependency. I am aware that the benefits and risks associated with the use of marijuana are not fully understood and that the use of marijuana may involve risks that have not been identified. In requesting an approval or recommendation for the use of medical marijuana, I assume full responsibility for any and all risks involved in this action.
I have been advised that medical marijuana smoke contains chemicals known as tars that may be harmful to my health. Recent research indicates that vaporizing cannabis may eliminate exposure to tar. Should respiratory problems or other ill effects be experienced in association with its use, it should be discontinued and reported to the physician immediately.
I was also advised that the use of medical marijuana may affect my coordination and cognition in ways that could impair my ability to drive, operate machinery, or engage in potentially hazardous activities. I assume full responsibility for any harm resulting to me and/or other individuals as a result of my use of cannabis.
I, the undersigned, hereby request a consultation by the physician for purposes of determining the appro-priateness of medicinal marijuana treatment. I acknowledge that using cannabis as a medicine has been explained to me and that any questions that I have asked have been answered to my complete satisfaction. The physician, staff, and representatives are addressing specific aspects of my medical care, and unless otherwise stated are in no way establishing themselves as my primary care provider. Should an approval be made for my medicinal use of marijuana, I understand that there is a renewal date specified by the physician depending on the condition. I understand that it is my responsibility to see the physician to assess the possible continuance of cannabis use beyond the term of the approval. Furthermore, the undersigned, or anyone acting on my behalf, hold the physician and his/her principals, agents, and employees, free of and harmless from any liability resulting from the use of medical marijuana.
