In order to become a member of the 5starorganic.com, an applicant must submit a confirmation of diagnosis from their practitioner. Depending on the medical condition, a recommendation for the use of cannabis may also be required.
Your health care practitioner (physician, naturopath, or doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine) must complete our Practitioner’s Statement, stamp it and fax it to us from her/his office. We accept Health Canada MMAR authorizations.
While many practitioners recognize the effectiveness of cannabis as a medicine, we realize that there are some who still may feel uncomfortable recommending cannabis or even completing the form. Some of them fear professional repercussions or may not feel that they have enough knowledge about this herbal medicine.
5starorganic.com has endeavoured to make our forms as undaunting and concurrant as possible. The practitioner is asked to confirm their patient's diagnosis, and whether they recommend the use of cannabis. If they indicate that they do not recommend the use of Cannabis, they are asked for the reason--legal, medical, or otherwise.
In order to maintain the confidentiality of our members and their health care providers, we are not able to refer you to doctors who have signed statements in the past. There are many compassionate doctors out there and we encourage you to keep trying.
