In today’s fast-paced world, instant gratification is the name of the game. You can order a cheeseburger and track its delivery right to your doorstep. Purchase a new pair of shoes, and they’ll be ready for pickup in just an hour. When it comes to most medications, your local pharmacy works tirelessly to ensure they’re in stock or can be supplied overnight. However, the story is a bit different when it comes to medicinal cannabis and other unregistered medicines. These products come with a few extra steps and restrictions that can cause delays in accessing the relief you need.
The Prescription and Approval Process
To get your hands on medicinal cannabis and unregistered medicines, you’ll need more than just a trip to the pharmacy. First and foremost, you’ll require a prescription from a qualified healthcare provider. But that’s not all; you’ll also need an approval, which your doctor will provide. Unfortunately, this approval process can take several days to complete. It’s important to be patient during this stage, as it’s a crucial step in ensuring the safe and appropriate use of these medications.
Pharmacy Orders and Patient Specificity
Once you’ve obtained your prescription and approval, your pharmacist can proceed with ordering the necessary medications. However, here’s where things differ from your typical pharmacy experience. Pharmacies can only place orders for these products when they have a copy of the approval form in hand. Moreover, any medication ordered using these forms is exclusively for the specific patient linked to the approval. In other words, these medicines cannot be kept on the shelf for anyone who walks in the door.
The Waiting Game
Once the order has been placed, it can take up to a week for the medication to arrive at the pharmacy. This waiting period is essential to ensure the safe and legal supply of these specialized products. While it may feel like an eternity when you’re in need, understanding these steps can help you avoid complications or confusion regarding supply.
