Company reinforces support for patients wishing to grow their own medical cannabis supply
Smiths Falls, ON, March 14, 2017 /CNW/ - Tweed Inc. (Tweed or the Company), Canada's largest cannabis producer is proud to announce that it has launched sales of a variety of top tier seeds, under its HomeGrow Collection banner. Consisting of 10 cannabis varieties ranging from low & high THC to CBD options, the HomeGrow Collection is designed to meet the needs of a variety of patients managing a variety of symptoms.
"Our goal is to offer a wide selection of cannabis products in a variety of formats, from dried bud and blends, to oils," said Mark Zekulin, President of Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX: WEED), Tweed's parent company. "We know there is demand for high-quality cannabis seeds and we have long supported the patient's individual right to grow their own medicine so this is a special day for our company."
In addition to seeds, Tweed will offer authorized patients a stable interim supply of medical cannabis starting with a one-time $25 discount toward any available product in the Tweed shop.
Home growing was not a part of the regulatory framework for the first few years of Tweed's operations, but became possible after activists and legal advocates fought to have it reintroduced into the federal regulations.
While the Company is supportive of any patient choosing to grow at home, its primary focus remains on supplying ready-to-consume cannabis products to the rapidly growing number of Canadians choosing the convenience and quality that comes from Tweed's focus on producing the best possible cannabis under the strictest controls and care.
Here's to Future Growth.
