• Licensed Producers

    Emblem

    Cannabis Canada Association looks forward to welcoming new Licensed Producers into the national association as the federal government continues to license regulated cannabis producers.

    Cannabis Canada Association, collectively, represents the majority of Licensed Producers of cannabis for medical purposes as licensed and regulated by the Office of Medical Cannabis and the Controlled Substance and Tobacco Branch, under the Health Canada’s Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR), in force as of April 1, 2014, recently modified on August 24, 2016 and renamed Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR).

    If you are a patient looking for medical cannabis, all of our members have well-educated and trained client service teams to assist you with finding the best product for your needs. If you don’t know what product form you would like or need to know where to find cannabis clinics with licensed physicians available to consult, the client care teams can help you. Compassionate programs are available, if needed. And, you can file the costs in your federal tax return as a medical expense.
