Calgary will soon be home to Alberta’s first medical clinic solely dedicated to providing access to medical marijuana. The 420 Clinic will be located in Inglewood, and operators hope to be open by the end of March. The clinic is not a dispensary, and no marijuana will be kept on site. Instead, the 420 Clinic will help patients navigate new federal rules around how medical marijuana can be accessed.
“Basically a patient will come here and we help them through the Health Canada process,” explained Jeff Mooij, director of operations for the 420 Clinic.
Under Health Canada’s medical marijuana program, patients must first obtain a medical document from a qualified healthcare practitioner. In Alberta, only physicians are able to provide such a document. Once a document is obtained, patients must register as a client with a licensed producer before being allowed to place an order. Marijuana orders are then shipped in dried form to a patient’s home using Canada Post. Patients are only allowed to receive up to a month’s supply per order.
Although the 420 Clinic will be Alberta’s first facility dedicated to helping patients access medical pot, the Oasis Medical Centre in northeast Calgary also offers medicinal marijuana consultations.
