99 North Medical Cannabis Dispensary was established on Valentines day in 2015.
We provide information regarding the medicinal use of cannabis and offer a safe and dependable source of medicine for patients who have the support of Health Canada and their physician.
Cannabis has been used effectively for thousands of years in the treatment of various medical conditions. Cannabis has been shown to be safer and more effective than many pharmaceutical pain relief treatments while presenting less physical dependence issues.
Symptoms alleviated by cannabis use include:
Nausea, chronic pain, muscular spasms, loss of appetite, weight loss, sleep disorders.
Research has shown that cannabis can alleviate the symptoms of numerous chronic illnesses including but not limited to multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury/disease, cancer, HIV/AIDS, severe arthritis and epilepsy. It is up to the physician to determine if cannabis is an appropriate treatment for a particular condition. 99 North does not advise or otherwise interfere with the doctor-patient relationship.
Canadians have shown that they overwhelmingly support the right of patients to access cannabis for medicinal purposes. A general population survey conducted in 2000 by the Centre of Addiction and Mental Health, published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, revealed that approximately 2% of the Canadian population reports using cannabis for medical purposes. In July 2006, a Maclean’s magazine poll found 93 percent of Canadians support “the legal use of marijuana for medicinal purposes”.
Health Canada’s Marihuana Medical Access Regulations (MMAR) came into force in 2001 as a result of R.v Parker . While the federal government licenses patients and production facilities, it is associations such as 99 North that facilitate the day-to-day needs of patients in the form of support and training on safe and effective use.
99 North strives to be transparent, accountable and professional. The friendly staff at 99 North are eager to aid and assist individuals in the community to perform activities with comfort and success. At our conveniently located downtown office, patients can pay using cash.
