New Practice Guideline
At its meeting on October 24, 2018, the Council of the College of Naturopaths of Ontario approved a new Practice Guideline: Non-medical (Recreational) Cannabis
. The document establishes a guideline interpreting, for Ontario's naturopathic profession, the Cannabis Act, 2018
, in conjunction with the College’s regulations and standards of practice. Note that medical cannabis will continue to be subject to the requirement of a prescription by a medical doctor or nurse practitioner.
Like all College guidelines, the new document is intended to provide recommendations on how naturopaths can deal with particular situations to be compliant with rules, regulations and standards. The new Guideline can be accessed below and is also available in our Resources section
