Referring Doctors

PlantMed doctors accept all patient referrals in the area of Cannabis Medicine only.  We work in conjunction with the patient’s treating Medical Specialist and General Practitioner to help track patient progress, symptom relief, medication interactions, and overall patient wellbeing. Referring doctors will be kept up to date on Governmental approval progress (patient’s SAS -B approval progress) and medication titration.

There is growing evidence that Medicinal Cannabis can benefit patients for a range of clinical conditions including:

  • Epilepsy
  • Chronic Pain
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Palliative Care
  • Cancer treatment induced nausea, appetite loss and sleep disturbance
  • PTSD
  • Autism

Inclusion of the items outlined below in the referral facilitates a more streamlined application process and reduced Governmental (SAS-B) approval time:

  • Patient’s condition
  • List of symptoms which are not relieved by current medications/ treatments
  • List all current medications/ treatments
  • List past treatments and medications which have not relieved symptoms/were not effective
  • Any associated adverse side effects of existing medication
  • Inclusion of wording such as “Thank you for seeing my patient in regards to a trial of Medicinal Cannabis to help relieve the symptoms outlined above” or “Thank you for seeing my patient in regards to potential adjuvant treatment with Medicinal Cannabis”
