We understand that the paperwork required to apply with the Marihuana Medical Access Division (MMAD) can be complicated and hope this will help you.

By answering a few simple questions we will provide you with a list of the application forms you will need, detailed instructions and important things to remember when filling them in.

Is your doctor reluctant to sign your MMAR forms?
Often it is useful to show, explain and sign this Marihuana Liability Release Form that releases them from the liability of signing your application.

What category patient are you?
Category 1 is for applicants who suffer from symptoms related to the following medical conditions:
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Spinal Cord Injury / Disease
  • Cancer, AIDS / HIV Infection
  • Severe Arthritis
  • Epilepsy

Symptoms treated within the context of providing compassionate end of life care If you do not suffer from one of these conditions you will need to apply as a Category 2 patient.

Get more information on our Who Is Eligible page.

Category 2 is for applicants who suffer from symptoms of a medical condition other than those in Category 1:
  • An assessment of your case by a specialist is required, if your medical practitioner is not already a specialist in the field you are diagnosed
  • Your medical practitioner can fill out this form and confirm that a specialist has assessed you condition
  • Get more information on our Who Is Eligible page
Renewal is for applicants who:
  • Currently hold an Authorization to Possess issued under the provisions of the Marihuana Medical Access Regulations
  • Have had no changes to the information provided since their last approved application for an Authorization to Possess
Made changes?
  • If you are making a change to your address you must submit Form A along with Form R.

How would you like your marihuana grown?

MedicalMarijuana.ca has a large network of professional growers that can provide you with the right strains at an affordable price.

If you would like more choice than Health Canada, cannot afford a compassion club or have difficulty growing your own, let us help by applying now for a designated grower.

Before you decide to make your friend your designated grower make sure you know they have the knowledge and skill to grow you safe, high quality medicine and deliver it you reliably.

Often a friendly offer to produce your medicine can put stress on a friendship when problems arise in the quality, price or timeliness of it.

Additionally, this person cannot have a conviction for a drug offence in the last 10 years and be able to properly secure his/her facility to satisfy Health Canada.

Whether you are an old pro or new to the art of growing make sure you have the right knowledge and the right supplies.

Check out our section for growers.

Health Canada provides the ability to purchase a single strain at $5/gram (plus taxes) from them directly.

Reviews have been mixed regarding its medicinal benefit because of the ability to only purchase one strain.

Do you or the designated grower own the proposed growing location?

If you or the designated grower owns the growing location no additional forms need to be filled out.

If the growing location is rented you must get the landlord's consent on Form F.
