Benefits for Medical Cannabis Patients after Legalization
As we move closer to the legalization of recreational cannabis, the buzz from the media about new laws and supply and demand becomes heightened. This leaves medical patients wondering exactly where they fit into their licensed producer’s plans for the future.
We want to assure you that CannTrust is committed to our medical patients and will continue to provide you with the same great product portfolio and services, like Trust Delivery, that you have come to expect from us. Here are some of the benefits for remaining a medical cannabis patient after legalization:
Medical patients are allowed to have in their possession up to 150 grams (or the maximum that your medical document allows) in comparison to recreational cannabis with a maximum limit of 30 grams per purchase.
Medical cannabis is permitted for public use and in rental spaces. Contrary to recreational cannabis, which is to be used only on private property.
CannTrust is committed to absorbing the excise tax for its medical patients and maintaining the same price on the same products that you have come to know. This is your medicine. CannTrust wants to ensure that patients will not see an increase in the price of their medical cannabis. Excise tax will, however, apply on all recreational products.
The expectation is that coverage for medical cannabis will only increase with time. Recreational cannabis will not be covered.
Medical cannabis is tax deductible! This is currently only available to patients with a medical document.
Medical products will only continue to evolve. Different and discreet methods by which to medicate, such as creams, dissolvable films, patches, along with capsules/oils and flower, will be made available through research and development, and will be available in selected pharmacies.
CannTrust is committed to always having our oil and capsule formulations in stock. There are no guarantees in the recreational space.
Theses are just a few of the benefits that will be offered to medical cannabis patients. As time goes on and as research progresses, we are hopeful that cannabinoid therapy will be well-recognized in the medical community. We remain hopeful that new research studies will bring about new innovations for this multi-purpose plant. Though we have only barely begun to scratch the surface, the future looks bright for medical cannabis.
