CMClinic Information

Canabo Medical Clinic (CMClinic) is at the forefront of patient care in the field of prescription cannabinoids and medical marijuana. Through the use of these therapies, CMClinic treats the needs of patients suffering from chronic pain and disabling illnesses. CMClinic is dedicated to helping patients find effective treatment for chronic and serious conditions through the use of prescription cannabinoids and medical marijuana, educating patients, physicians and the community and advancing research in the medical marijuana field.

When prescribed correctly by knowledgeable physicians, prescription cannabinoids and medical marijuana can play a meaningful role in a patient’s recovery plan, effectively managing symptoms and improving quality of life.

Patients referred to CMClinic will undergo an initial medical examination to assess their needs and suitability for prescription cannabinoids or medical marijuana. If deemed appropriate, the doctor will prescribe a prescription cannabinoid or medical marijuana. Our cannabinoid educators will help patients navigate the new medical marijuana regulatory system, providing patient education on their prescription and advising on accessing a licensed producer. Through regular follow up appointments, the clinic ensures that the medication prescribed continues to have its desired outcome.

There is no fee to see a physician at CMClinic, although we do require a referral from your family physician or specialist.

With your initial visit you will receive a consultation with a physician as well as a free introductory cannabinoid education session with one of our trained cannabinoid educators.
