SASKATOON, June 17, 2015 /CNW/ – Patients registered with CanniMed Ltd., Canada’s most well-established and reliable producer of medical cannabis, have just learned that membership has its privileges. Effective immediately, all patients will automatically be enrolled in the most comprehensive and straightforward patient appreciation initiative currently offered by any Canadian Licensed Producer. The CanniMed Care Program has been designed with patient’s specific needs and care in mind.
"At CanniMed, we are first and foremost committed to superior care and supporting our patients through every stage of their medical journey," said Brent Zettl, President and CEO. "Our two new patient-oriented CanniMed Care Programs are designed to provide additional support to each and every one of the patients who rely on us for their medical cannabis needs. We do not ask for income justification or disability status – we truly feel that all patients deserve extra care."

Effective immediately, all CanniMed® products are priced below $10/gram, and our top selling CanniMed® 12.0 is priced below $5/gram.
Renewal Rewards: As a loyalty benefit, CanniMed will credit renewing patients’ accounts up to $500.

CanniMed Care Veterans Program
For the thousands of Canadian military personnel who have risked their lives for our safety, we thank you. This CanniMed Care Veterans Program was designed uniquely for your particular needs.
No Waiting: CanniMed will now finance each Veteran’s initial month of medical cannabis to eliminate the standard waiting period instituted by Veterans Affairs Canada.
Online Orders: CanniMed Veterans will have 24/7 access to our unique online ordering system, complementing the personalized customer care and ordering service already delivered over the phone.
Veterans Rewards: All new and renewing veterans will receive an annual thank you reward upon registration. The rewards offered will grow over time and at present we are offering our veterans their choice of an Apple iPad Mini 2, a RIDGID 4pc x4 Lithium Combo tool kit or a financial donation to a charity that we will coordinate on the veteran’s behalf.
CanniMed Ltd. was the first producer to be licensed under the new Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR). Our pharmaceutical-grade marijuana is produced under Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) regulations, the criteria used to manufacture all pharmaceuticals in Canada. Our primary focus is on patient safety, undertaken by strictly following a 281 point quality control process.
CanniMed’s parent company, Prairie Plant Systems Inc. was the sole supplier to Health Canada under the former medical marijuana system for 13 years, and has been producing safe and consistent medical marijuana for thousands of Canadian patients, with no incident of diversion.
