Why Medical Cannabis?

Have you wondered why you should choose medical cannabis?

We’ve listed some of the main benefits you’ll notice when you choose medical cannabis over recreational:

  • Farm-to-Table from a Health Canada approved Licensed Producer
    • Farm-to-Table removes the middle man, when purchasing from a Health Canada approved Licensed Producer you’re purchasing directly from the grower. Your prescription is shipped discretely directly to your door.
  • Compassionate pricing based on income
    • Some Health Canada approved Licensed Producers offer compassionate pricing which can range from 10%-30% off your prescription price, depending on which Licensed Producer you choose. The compassionate pricing discount is dependent on your annual income, the Licensed Producer will ask for a notice of assessment to verify. **Please note, not all Licensed Producers offer compassionate pricing at this time.
  • Physician care and support
    • Our Cannabis Physicians work with our patients to develop a medical cannabis plan that is tailored to each patients needs medically and financially. Our clinic offers unlimited strain reviews to ensure our patients symptoms are improving.
  • Higher possession limits
    • When legalization is established on October 17, 2018, recreational users will be legally allowed to carry 30grams on them at one time (equal to 1gram a day). Medical cannabis users will be legally allowed to carry their entire monthly prescription amount on them at one time.
  • Medical expense on taxes
    • Medical cannabis, medical cannabis clinic fees, and medical cannabis devises (vaporizers) can be written off at tax time as a medical expense. Be sure to keep all your receipts.
