What is Medical Cannabis?
There has been a growing acceptance and body of literature to support the therapeutic benefits of medical cannabis for various conditions and ailments.
Cannabinoids, THC and CBD, the main active ingredients in the cannabis plant, are part of the current prescription medical approach (Nabilone, is a synthetic THC and Sativex is a cannabis extract with a fixed ratio mix of THC and CBD) for treating various conditions such as weight loss due to cancer, neuropathic pain, analgesia, spasticity, etc.
The cannabis plant contains 70+ cannabinoids (THC and CBD being the most common active ingredients) and 400 or so compounds including terpenes which all work synergistically and collectively to form the essence of the cannabis plant’s healing properties.
Cura-Can is a patient-centric company with Resource Centres & Virtual Clinics across Canada geared to provide safe access to patients seeking treatment alternatives to their medical conditions with the use of cannabis.
Each site is staffed with an intake coordinator, a nurse/patient educator and physician with training and expertise in the consultation and prescription of medical cannabis.

Medical grade cannabis can only be obtained through a federally approved licensed producer with strict pharmacy grade growing facilities and laboratories. The product is tested at approved labs for consistency of product, levels of THC and CBD (active ingredients in the cannabis plant) and for contaminants.
They provide a clean source of cannabis which is mould free, bacteria, pest and pesticide free. A recent Globe and Mail article indicated that over 1/3 of dispensary product is not safe and would not pass Health Canada standards given high levels of contaminants.
