Tweed announces partnership with Arizer to bring high quality vaporizers to Tweed Medical Marijuana customers

OTTAWA, April 14, 2014 /CNW/ - Tweed Marijuana Inc. (TSXV: TWD) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary Tweed Inc. ("Tweed") has partnered with Canadian company Arizer to offer Tweed customers a choice of the Arizer Solo and Extreme Q vaporizers.

Tweed will be offering these vaporizers at an exclusive price available only to their registered customers. "We truly believe in the benefits of using a vaporizer to consume medical marijuana," said Chuck Rifici, Tweed's President and CEO. "For this reason we are proud to offer these vaporizers to our customers at a discounted price to encourage their use."

Vaporizing is a way to inhale the bioactive components of medical marijuana while avoiding burning of plant matter. The vaporization of cannabis is possible because the trichomes, which contain the main therapeutic components of cannabis, are converted to vapor at a lower heat than it takes to burn the plant matter. Vaporizing is an effective alternative to smoking which provides the same therapeutic effect without exposure to irritant compounds resulting from the burning of plant matter.

As quoted by Arizer, "We are pleased to work with a customer service focused company like Tweed.  Bringing premium products at discounted prices to the medical community is a great service and savings for its members".

The Extreme Q and Solo vaporizers are now available on Tweed's website, along with instructional information to help patients better understand the merits of using a vaporizer to consume medical marijuana.
