Last year, 21.7 million opioid prescriptions were dispensed in Canada, a figure that places our nation as their second-highest consumer in the world.  Across Canada, there have been over 4,000 hospitalizations due to acetaminophen overdoses. 
In response to these troubling statistics, a group of compassionate health care providers launched Plants Not Pills, an organization that connects patients with cannabis-trained physicians willing to consider medical marijuana as an alternative to prescription medication.

Do I have to smoke it?
Rather than inhaling it, you now have the ability to ingest medicinal cannabis as a cookie or candy, oil, capsule, spray or in a vaporizer. While cannabis may not yet be called a cure for any illness, it can help alleviate insomnia, chronic pain, migraines, depression, anxiety, PTSD and a host of other symptoms associated with serious illness.
Who supplies the medical marijuana?
Under the Canadian government’s new program, all Canadians are able to access medical cannabis through licensed producers such as Aphria, who expertly cultivate regulated medical cannabis that is lab-tested for contaminants, additives, microbials and molds.
Ontario-grown greenhouse cannabis differs greatly from “street cannabis”. A wide range of low to high and balanced THC and/or CBD strains offer variety to give relief from a wide range of health conditions. This selection can provide our patients with a better quality of life and increased ability to function normally while ensuring product consistency and availability.
The CBD-dominant strains provide pain relief without any psychoactive side effects, there is no ‘high’ and many of our patients use this medical marijuana to treat their ailments while continuing to lead busy, productive lives.
