TORONTO, Feb. 16, 2017 /CNW/ - MedReleaf, Canada's premium licensed producer (LP) of medical cannabis, today announced it is providing same-day delivery to patients in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). The same-day delivery service covers Mississauga, Vaughan, Richmond Hill, Brampton, Markham and Toronto. MedReleaf hopes the same-day service will encourage medical cannabis patients seeking quick access to medication to abandon unregulated dispensaries in favour of the safe, secure and regulated system.
This announcement follows closely on another pioneering first for MedReleaf, becoming the first and only LP to receive Health Canada approval to sell cannabis capsules, a format that is favoured by physicians and patients alike as it allows for more consistent dosing.
"Everything we do is driven by an unwavering commitment to our patients, the desire to lead Canada's medical cannabis industry and to strengthen our position as the country's premium licensed producer," noted Neil Closner, CEO of MedReleaf. "Being Canada's premium LP means every part of the patient experience should be premium and health focused. We offer our patients a consistent supply of superior products, the most well-trained patient support team in the country, the safest packaging and now the most convenient, fastest delivery options."
"Same-day delivery is also an important contribution to public health and safety in the GTA," noted Closner. "Same-day delivery is even more convenient than going to dispensaries or other unregulated channels."
