Organigram

Growing organic medical cannabis isn’t easy, in fact, most licensed producers won’t take this on. It means more care, more testing, more rules… but in the end it means a product that we feel delivers on our goals in the best way.

Improving the quality of life for Canadians is not just about getting safe, quality product to them effectively. It’s about creating jobs, being good neighbours and contributing to our community.

MedReleaf is a Health Canada Licensed Producer, and the first and only ISO 9001 certified medical cannabis producer in North America. It is our mission to improve the quality of life of our patients and to expand the world’s understanding of cannabis through wide-ranging research initiatives.

How to choose an LP

You will need to register with a licensed producer (LP) of your choice to be able to order medical marijuana. It is important to understand the different products each LP produces before choosing an LP. If you are currently with an LP that doesn’t have a product you need, call or visit one of our locations and we’d be happy to get you registered with an LP that better suits your needs.

It doesn’t have to be confusing: we will guide you through the process, from Doctor appointment to ordering your cannabis!

The Basics

CBD vs. THC: What are they, what do they do, and are they right for you?

CBD and THC are both cannabinoids and are the main active ingredients in cannabis. You will see a percentage of each when shopping for cannabis online. For example, a popular strain is Sour Kush which has 20% THC and 0% CBD.

The main difference between CBD and THC is that THC has psychoactive properties and CBD does not. Most people will use a CBD product with little to no THC during the day, as they prefer to not feel “high”.

Your doctor will be able to recommend how much CBD and THC you should dose with at different times of the day. For example if you suffer from insomnia, you might be recommended to use a higher THC dosage at bedtime, but not during the day.

Oil vs. Dried Flowers: What are they, what is the difference and which one is right for you?

Most people are familiar with the dried flower form of cannabis that is used for smoking or vaporizing. It is the most widely available form of cannabis and is what all other forms of cannabis are produced from (oil, shatter, hash, etc.)

Cannabis oil is becoming very popular in the medical cannabis world because it is so easy to dose and does not require smoking or vaporizing to ingest. As well, it is easy to use in baking and can come in gel capsule form for a simple mess-free dose.

It is important to remember that when consuming cannabis oil through the digestive system, it is very different than ingesting cannabis through smoking or vaporizing. Through the digestive system, it will take longer to feel the effects of cannabis (anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours) and the effects will last much longer (several hours, vs. under an hour for smoking). When using cannabis oil for the first time, we recommend consulting with one of our experienced staff to find out what you can expect and how to “dose low, go slow”.

Vaporizers: What are they, what do they do, and are they right for you?

Vaporizers have gained popularity in the past few years and are available at most trusted retailers. There are two main types of vaporizers (table top and portable) but they both work in the same way.

Vaporizers are similar to smoking, but without combusting the dried flower and therefore saving you from the adverse health effects of smoke inhalation. Vaporizers work with a small heating element, usually made from ceramic or a metal coil. The dried flower is placed in the heating chamber and the resulting vapour is inhaled orally in the same way one would smoke.

Because vaporizers do not combust the dried flower, they emit much less smell and are therefore much more discreet when dosing outside of the home. Additionally, vaporizers use electric heating elements and therefore do not rely on lighters and lighter fluid.

Vaporizers are an overall upgrade to smoking dried flowers and are highly recommended by most doctors. In some cases, patients can receive partial coverage for the purchase of a vaporizer as a medical device. Call or visit one of our locations to learn more about vaporizers!
