Why Choose Medical Cannabis?
Medical cannabis users have more leeway when it comes to where cannabis may be consumed, and medical users are allowed to consume cannabis anywhere tobacco is permitted, whereas recreational users may only consume cannabis in a private space.

Medical cannabis users may register to grow their own medicine or designate someone to grow it on their behalf. The law in Newfoundland and Labrador states that four plants may be produced in each 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.
