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, regardless of municipal bylaws which may restrict the consumption of recreational cannabis. 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. This is contrary to recreational users who are not allowed to grow their own cannabis in Quebec.
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.
