Medical marijuana prices can be very expensive, on average you are paying about $8.00- $10.00 a gram. When a doctor prescribes you a gram a day to medicate that can add up exponentially! You are looking at roughly $300 a month with taxes and such.
To some that is a cost they cannot afford to have, unless you have insurance buying medical marijuana may not be attainable.
So what are your options? Well luckily there are some options available for low incomes or for those that have a specific status. Below we will explore some licensed producers and other services that are accessible to you in Canada and see what they offer.
To get cannabis it is really easy now, now that marijuana is legal in Canada as of October 17, 2018.
But even though recreational cannabis is legal you still need to apply to be eligible to access medical cannabis.
It is important to note there is much difference between medical cannabis versus recreational. One important factor is that licensed medical cannabis producers will be focusing on engineering high-quality strains and ensuring patients receive their order before recreational cannabis is distributed.
