This will be the first Canadian company supporting and providing insurance and launching into providing medical support solutions for clients.

Community groups and advocates have long known that medicinal cannabis is important.

Community groups and advocates have long known that medicinal cannabis can have seemingly miraculous effects in the treatment of patients with any number of afflictions. Read, for example, the story of Joanne and Dina Dedes. Dina has autism and cannabis was used to alleviate her anxiety and aggression. Every shared story where cannabis has impacted patients and their families for the better, affirms our belief that patients all across Canada should have easy and convenient access.

It’s heard time and time again. Medicinal cannabis is a solution to assist with suffering from a condition that could otherwise handicap them. There is a difference between medicinal and recreational, as outlined in the Financial Post, and it is quite clear that thousands of Canadians are seeking cannabis as a solution to replace their prescriptions.

End The Patient Paradox

When it comes to crafting cannabis legislation in Canada, it is important to keep in mind the key differences between recreational and medicinal cannabis because there is a difference. Medicinal users have been prescribed cannabis for a range of ailments – from anxiety to chronic pain- and in many cases it removes the need for highly-addictive and dangerous opioids and other prescription medication. There have even been cases where medicinal cannabis has successfully treated conditions where other medications failed to do so.
