This means that those wanting to know a bit more about medical marijuana but not necessarily sure that it’s for them can schedule an appointment to have a consultation regardless.

So, with Namaste MD there is nothing stopping Canadians who could benefit from the positive effects of marijuana from finding out more and even getting a prescription without having to leave their house. This could be an innovation which could change the way marijuana is prescribed forever and go some way to making it more socially accepted across Canada and ultimately the world.
