What is Medical Cannabis?

Medical Cannabis (Medical Marijuana or Medical Marihuana) refers to the use of the Cannabis plant and/or its constituent Cannabinoids for use as medical therapy, to help treat disease, or in relief of medical symptoms. It has been recorded that the Cannabis plant has a history of medical use dating back thousands of years across many cultures.

Today we know that it is the unique Cannabinoid compounds found in Cannabis that provide the medicinal benefits of the plant.

Is Medical Cannabis Safe?

Medical cannabis has been authorized for sale in Canada for more than a decade and has been accessed by thousands of patients to treat a panoply of conditions and symptoms. It is best to consult with your doctor to find out whether medical cannabis may be appropriate for you.

Our products adhere to strict quality control standards and are tested for any possible contaminants. Before any product can be approved for sale it undergoes testing to determine accurate levels of cannabinoids. All of our products are assigned lot numbers, which allows us to recall our product and inform any affected clients quickly in the very unlikely event of a problem. Patient safety is top priority at Delta 9.

What is the proper dosage for me?

Studies suggest that an average dose of 0.5 – 3 grams/ day of dried cannabis when vaporized or smoked can provide effective relief of symptoms, however some patients, often those who chose an oral method of ingestion in conjunction to vaporizing or smoking have obtained larger prescriptions.

We recommend that those who have no prior experience with cannabis and cannabis therapy use a low starting dose and increase gradually if desired. Delta 9 is committed to working with patients and their Health Care practitioners to determine the proper dosage.

How much will my medicine cost?

Cost varies based on the strain and quantity purchased. Varieties are priced by gram and range between $5/ gram and $10/ gram based on the cost of production.

Here at Delta 9 providing compassionate care and service for Canadians of all walks of life is a priority.

Under this program, registered patients will be able to access CPP eligible strain(s) at the low price of only $5.75 per gram.
