Why Choose Medical Cannabis?
Medical cannabis users have more leeway when it comes to where cannabis may be consumed. Medical users are allowed to consume cannabis anywhere tobacco is permitted, as opposed to recreational cannabis users who must consume the product in a private residence in some municipalities. Medical cannabis users may also possess a higher amount of cannabis, based on their medical recommendation, and are allowed to carry tinctures, edibles and CBD products.
Medical cannabis users may register to grow their own medicine or designate someone to grow it on their behalf and may be able to produce more than four plants based on their daily medical recommendation. This is contrary to recreational users who are only permitted to grow four plants per household.
Medical users also have a greater selection of cannabis products to choose from. Licensed Producers offer products that are not available on the recreational market, such as CBD oil, tinctures and decarboxylated flowers. Licensed Producers will also be able to guide patients towards appropriate products for their medical needs.
Finally, all medical cannabis purchases are tax deductible as a medical expense.
