My doctor prescribed cannabis to me two years ago and it has worked wonders! I don’t have internet at home so I go to my oldest daughter’s place and she helps me order when I need to but I also got set up at a dispensary for patients so I can get what I need on my own. I like talking with the staff too about the different products that could work for me. If it’s closed for good, I’m really upset. Why did the city shut it down? It’s hard enough when there are shortages of what I need to use and then to be stuck with one option to get it doesn’t seem fair.
The challenges and triumphs of medical cannabis patients are as unique as the individuals facing them, but our stories tell a shared message: We all deserve a better quality of life- and better access to it too. We believe in and understand what medical cannabis can do for your health, your healing process and, the well-being of the wounded mind and body.
Medicinal My Way prioritizes the voices of patients and empowers individuals to be positive ambassadors of medical cannabis. We want patients to be the change-makers and the conversation leaders at all levels of Canadian government.
Every story will help to lead the conversation about medicinal cannabis within Canada and also to change it. When a story is shared, we are not only furthering our commitment to an issue, but renewing our commitment to thousands of patients who are part of the struggle for better healthcare, their way.

Dispensary Closure Cut Me Off From My Medicine
I have esophageal and liver cancer and I am highly dependent on cannabis oil to alleviate pain and nausea. I have relied on a medical dispensary in a nearby community to get my medication often, especially this season when poor weather has delayed mail. With my symptoms, I can’t afford to run out or wait for my meds to be shipped to me. Last week, mail deliveries were delayed again because of bad weather, so I made the trip to the dispensary. Unfortunately, it had been shut down. I’m kind of stuck now for access to my medicine and very frustrated on top of being in a lot of pain. Something needs to change.

A Cannabis patient since 2014. Registered with 6 Licensed Producers and sampled 8 to this day. I’ve have some the worst time with getting a doctor to sign. They have all the refer madness slogans for us. When I did get a doctor to sign it wasn’t my doctor, it was a Skype doctor. Not that I had the funds anyway…a disability of $840 had to be given up for meds each month while my bills overran and a creditor came looking for money I couldn’t spare. After signing all the waivers I had to teach a psychiatrist making a couple hundred thousand a year what exactly Herbal Cannabis and Healing was. I was his first patient ever on Cannabis as a treatment and I had to force him to do it. “I don’t know how he said. “Call a doctor running any rehab and they’ll answer your basic questions”,…
