What to Expect at Canopy Medical when seeking approval for medical cannabis?
An initial appointment will include a review of your medical history and a short physical exam. Outside medical records are requested regarding your qualifying condition. Education is provided about the risks, benifets and possible side effects of cannabis. We will review ND laws and review how to apply for your card.
Follow up appointments will occur at 3 and 6 months following your initial appointment. After you have been using cannabis for 6 months, appointments occur 2 times per year. These appointments are to check in to make sure you are not having any negative side effects, and to ensure your goals are being met with medical cannabis use.
