HOW DO I PLACE MY ORDER WITH WEEDMD?

WeedMD offers secure online shopping here, or by phone.  We accept, from our registered patients, payment in the form of: Visa, Mastercard, money orders, and e-transfers.

How long will it take for me to become a registered patient?

Once we have received your necessary documents, and provided that no additional information is required, your registration may be approved in as little as 1-3 business days.

HOW MUCH PRODUCT CAN I ORDER AT ONE TIME?

As per Health Canada’s regulations, you may order up to a 30-day supply with no more than 150 grams per order. Registered patients may order as many times as they like without exceeding their 30-day limit.

For example, if your doctor authorizes 2 grams/day on your medical document, then your 30 day limit would be 60 grams (2 grams x 30 days). Registered patients may order the entire amount, or split it into separate, smaller orders throughout the 30 days. Patients with prescriptions greater than 5 grams per day will need to order multiple times within the 30-days due to the 150 gram maximum per shipment.

HOW WILL MY ORDER BE SHIPPED?

All WeedMD orders are packaged discretely and shipped by our trusted delivery partners, Canada Post & Purolator.

IS THERE A COMPASSIONATE PROGRAM AVAILABLE?

Yes!  We do offer compassionate pricing of 20% off our regular prices.  Contact a member of our Client Services Team to see if you qualify, or click here for more information.

I’m registered. What happens when my medical document expires?

Your registration with WeedMD is valid for the duration set out in the medical document or copy of the registration certificate as provided by your medical practitioner.  You will receive notification from WeedMD in regards to your expiration date upon approval of your registration. Once your registration expires, you must submit a new medical document/registration certificate and a new registration application for approval.

Please note that the expiration date is the final date that you can RECEIVE an order.  As such, the final date for ordering will be 3 business day(s) prior to expiration.

Will my medical plan cover the cost of any products I order?

In most cases, medical cannabis is not covered under provincial or private drug plans. However, it is always recommended to check with your provider. Medical cannabis purchased from a licensed producer can be claimed on your personal tax return, and if you are a veteran, you may have coverage through Veterans Affairs Canada.


Registration & Ordering of Clones

CAN I CHANGE MY SHIPPING ADDRESS?

The ACMPR indicates that the only address that can be used is the one that is listed on your ACMPR Registration Certificate. This can be the address where your medical marijuana is produced or stored. We are not permitted to make amendments to shipping address. This will have to be done through Health Canada. Please make sure to have someone available to receive your live plants at the address listed on your ACMPR.

Can I order an interim supply of oils and dried flower?

Cannabis has a 2-4 week vegetative cycle, an 8-10 week flowering cycle, followed by a 1-2 week drying time before it can be consumed. If you need an interim supply of oil or dried flower you may order an interim supply from a Licensed Producer.

This application is the same as the form used to register to receive live plants, however, on this application you must indicate you are looking for an interim supply of dried cannabis or oil.  Even existing WeedMD clients must register and apply for a ACMPR Production License, and for interim supply.

Can I order clones if I am already registered with an LP?

No. WeedMD requires a valid ACMPR personal production license from Health Canada. This is a document issued by Health Canada that is separate from your Personal Possession License.

HOW DO I ORDER LIVE CANNABIS PLANTS?

We will gladly help you place your order over the phone at (519) 765-2440 ext. 223.

Orders will only be processed once your registration is complete, and a copy of ACMPR Production License is obtained.

Please forward your official ACMPR Registration Certificate from Health Canada to WeedMD and then complete the WeedMD Registration Application. You will need to specify that your registration includes the intent to purchase live plants, which may be identified in Section C.

Is there a maximum number of clones I can purchase?

The maximum number of live plants that a client can purchase is determined by Health Canada.  This number is stated on your ACMPR Personal Production Certificate.
