TORONTO – In 2001, the Canadian government launched the Canadian Medical Marijuana Access Regulations Program allowing patients across the country safe access to medical cannabis. In 2016, the program was extended to permit medical patients in Canada to attain a “Grow Your Own License”, legally permitting patients to grow their own cannabis at home. Fast forward to 2020, there is an increasing amount of research focusing on the medical benefits of cannabis and cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD — these treatment options being accessed by patients experiencing a wide variety of medical conditions.
Medical cannabis patients often cite the cost of medical cannabis and the lack of healthcare coverage as a barrier for becoming a patient. Maximus Rose Living Benefits, a company that started in Northern Ontario and has expanded to Southern Ontario, recognized a gap in healthcare services in terms of employee benefits plans. With their understanding of marketplace trends, they realized the importance of offering their clients’ safe and discrete access to medical cannabis solutions as a necessary next step. Evidence shows that proper medical oversight when using medical cannabis can increase successful outcomes for patients versus self-medicating.
“Maximus Rose is proud to partner with Medical Marijuana Consultants to provide our clients with Virtual Marijuana Consulting Services as well as access to the highest industry standard of medical cannabis,” explains Tony Fasulo, CEO of Maximus Rose. “We want to offer our clients’ and their employees a variety of pharmaceutical and relief options, and that includes a holistic approach to healthcare through access to medical cannabis.”
