The definition of chronic pain as a qualifying condition.

(b) Intractable pain, limited for the purpose of this chapter to 27 mean pain unrelieved by standard medical treatments and medications;


There are new requirements from the Department of Health that we must follow in our clinic.

To prove that you qualify for medical cannabis under the new requirements for intractable pain, we need chart notes, imaging reports or other appropriate documents from your primary care or other specialist (pain clinic, rheumatologist, neurologist, orthopedist are a few examples of specialists).  You will need to provide updated documents in every year. These documents must show that you have seen this physician in the past 12 months for your chronic pain and that your condition is debilitating, interfering with your ability to function on a daily basis. All documents must be ON PAPER and HAND CARRIED TO THE APPOINTMENT or E-MAILED/FAXED in advance of your appointment. We cannot accept discs or CD’s. Without these documents we will be unable to serve you.

We understand that you are in pain and additional requirements are challenging for you, but please allow us to do our job to ensure your safety.
