The Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR) was introduced June 2013 and became effective as of April 1, 2014. The regulations put in place create a structure for an industry that is responsible for the production and distribution of medical marijuana. Their main focus is so Canadians with a medical need can access quality controlled cannabis grown under secure and sanitary conditions.
From 2001-2014, Health Canada granted access to marihuana for medical purposes to Canadians who have had the support of their physicians. Once approved under the Marihuana Medical Access Regulations (MMAR), individuals had three options for obtaining a legal supply of dried marihuana: 1) they could apply under the MMAR to access Health Canada’s supply of dried marihuana (ATP); 2) they could apply for a personal-use production licence (PPL); or 3) they can designate someone to cultivate on their behalf with a designated-person production licence (DPL).
Licensed Producer: Licensed Producers were developed as the MMPR program came into effect. They are a health canada regulated corporation that keeps up to date with quality control laws in order to produce and distribute cannabis as medicine.
Dispensary: Dispensaries have been around for 20 years, and came into existence when the MMAR (ATP/PPL/DPL) program was in effect (preMMPR). In the instance a patient was unable to produce their own cannabis, they would designate someone to grow their medicine for them, under the DPL. Majority of these growers became experts in their field and in turn took on many patients. For safety reasons the growers kept their grow sites private. In order for the patients to access their medicine, they needed a safe meet and greet site for both parties. That is when dispensaries were born.
Since 2015 multiple dispensaries have sprouted up in the GTA in hopes of filling a void. The void has been created due to the dosing cap placed on the Licensed Producers by Health Canada. Unfortunately this void puts patients who suffer from severe conditions such as cancer for example in a difficult situation. These patients require higher doses of cannabinoids which can only be found in extracts.

For a cannabis naive user, it is recommended to start low and go slow. Method of administration plays a major role in determining your dosage. Our physicians are educated on the amount of cannabis needed to make your own edibles and/or topicals. They use that knowledge plus your past history of cannabis use as foundations when prescribing. As your body becomes more accustomed to using cannabis as a medicine, the physician may gradually increase the dosage during your follow-up appointment.
