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:

Shipped directly to your door from a Health Canada Licensed producer

  • When purchasing from a Health Canada approved Licensed Producer you’re purchasing directly from the grower. Your prescription is shipped discreetly and 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 treatment support

  • Our Cannabis Physicians work with our patients to develop a medical cannabis plan that is tailored to each patient’s needs medically and financially. Our clinic offers unlimited strain reviews to ensure our patient’s 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 devices (vaporizers) can be written off at tax time as a medical expense. Be sure to keep all your receipts.
