Why Choose Medical Cannabis?
Did you know? Cannabis is used to manage a wide variety of symptoms because it contains multiple active ingredients, including a group of compounds known as cannabinoids. In many cases, cannabis is becoming increasingly recognized as a viable treatment option and/or adjunct to traditional pharmaceuticals. As of March 2018, over 295,000 Canadians were registered with a licensed producer for access to medical cannabis. *
