Medical cannabis has shown great success in the management of various health conditions, and access to this is being made possible by the team at IntroCann.
Technology has changed everything about the world, and more so everything we understand about it. It is imperative to keep up with the changing times that we have been presented with. Especially when bearing in mind that technology is matching the changes in the landscape of cannabis medicine specifically. Being the first online portal that brings doctors and patients together is exactly what this changing landscape was asking for, and IntroCann has delivered.
”South African legislation has changed and enabled us to be a part of so many more patient’s health journeys. At the end of 2018, there were only 56 patients importing medicine in South Africa under section 21 of the Medicines and Related Substances Act. This process, which was traditionally filled with red tape, has become much easier thanks to the IntroCann portal and recent legislative changes. On the IntroCann portal, it becomes possible to be prescribed medicinal cannabis with ease – and that is our mission.” said James, IntroCann’s General Manager.
The IntroCann portal brings together doctors, patients, and section 21’s under the same umbrella. Applications can not only be done by licensed medical professionals on your behalf but statuses of these applications can also be viewed in one simple to navigate space. Worrying about the management of your health conditions should not be the most strenuous part of your life, especially when trying to stay healthy. With this ideal in mind, IntroCann has brought together the necessary tools to facilitate the prescription of medical cannabis products, because everyone should have equal opportunities to access this emerging medicine.
Using IntroCann is about as simple as using your favourite form of social media, registration on the portal is fast, but it is after registration that your process becomes even more simplified. After registration, you can invite your doctor via their email, or alternatively, the IntroCann team can match you with a suitable doctor. It is in this freedom of choice that a health journey really becomes your own.
After inviting or being matched with a doctor, the doctor will complete a section 21 application on your behalf and submit it, all the while being tracked on the portal. Transparency and ease of access makes you a part of this journey. After approval from the South African Health Products Regulatory Authority, your prescription can be delivered, and details like expiry dates and how many repeats you have left can be viewed freely on the portal.
Putting your medicinal cannabis journey in your hands, alongside medical professionals is what IntroCann is about. Having the freedom to participate in this process privately is what empowers you, the individual. Medicinal cannabis meets the 21st century, become a medicinal cannabis patient today.
