Online portal takes guesswork out of prescription pot
TORONTO, May 8, 2014 /CNW/ - With the dust settling from the birth of
Canada's new medical marijuana industry, CanvasRx launched the first comprehensive database for medical marijuana today.
Aiming to simplify the process for both doctors and patients, CanvasRx
not only matches strains to symptoms, it also connects patients
directly to licenced producers.
The new regulations have made it easier for patients to obtain a
prescription, but many people are still left with questions. Different
strains of marijuana alleviate different symptoms, and patients aren't
sure which producer to use. CanvasRx solves that problem by helping
both doctors and patients navigate this new landscape.
"CanvasRX operates much like an online marijuana pharmacy," says Ronan
Levy, co-founder of CanvasRx. "Because pharmacies in Canada cannot
carry marijuana and the dispensary model is prohibited by the
regulations, we step into fill the knowledge gap by providing patients
and doctors with the information and resources they need to best
utilize this treatment option."
With no cost to patients or doctors, CanvasRx marks the creation of a
new sub-industry: businesses that exist to support patients, doctors,
and licenced producers. Patients can now research which exact strain
best suits their symptoms and download a Medical Document to bring to
their doctor that they then mail to the licensed producer. Once the
producer verifies the patient's information they can ship the marijuana
directly to the patient.
"When a patient has a prescription for traditional medicine, we don't
expect them to get it directly from the pharmaceutical company,"
explains Levy. "CanvasRx gives patients the ability to make an informed
decision. By connecting patients, doctors, and licenced producers in
one place, we can eliminate a lot of confusion for all parties
