With legalization in Canada on the horizon for spring 2017, it’s still vital to ensure you’re up to date on the in’s and out’s of the different ways you can ‘prove’ your need for medical cannabis at Nelson’s Potorium.
At Nelson’s Potorium, we only require proof of diagnosis. Essentially, this means that we simply need a written confirmation from a medical professional that you are experiencing any one of a variety of conditions, some of which include:
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Auto Accident(s)
- Back & Neck Problems
- Brain Injury
- Chronic Nausea
- Chronic Pain
- Crohn’s Disease

Proof of diagnosis simply means that your health care professional is affirming that you are experiencing a medical condition that could be treated with medical cannabis. It’s important to note that this does not mean that your health care professional is recommending that you use medical marijuana to treat this condition. It simply means that he or she is affirming your condition.
