VAC was missing a piece of paperwork from my prescribing doctor, like I said it took only a matter of days to sort out.

I'm very grateful for the support I was shown. I had an absolute meltdown when VAC cut my funding. And VAC knew there was an essential piece of the puzzle missing and rather than send me a letter or calling me to say they needed something further they opted to cut me off instead. I'm sure it was a ploy to see if I would just give up and forget that I needed my medication.
But, Marijuana for Trauma, my prescribing doctor, the OVO and Aphria stepped in and literally saved the day.

No, it'll state in your approval letter that VAC will cover what you were prescribed. All you do is order and wait for the delivery.

Yes, but you will likely get a letter from VAC saying that continued coverage beyond 6 months will require additional paperwork from your doctor.

Vet1234 or anyone else who has been approved for medical cannabis.   VAC will cover the cost of a vaporizer up to $300 every 3 years if I remember correctly.

I chose one called The Ascent, but wish I had chose one with less moving parts.  I used mine daily for 3 months at it's already broken.  

Choose wisely everyone.  I learned the hard way.

I'm looking at the Vapir Rise 2.0. Had some decent reviews.
