Interested in trying medical cannabis, but worried about the cost?
Financial stress is the last thing you need to worry about on your healing journey, which is why CannMart has introduced the Compassionate Pricing Program (CPP) to help you purchase cannabis.
What is the Compassionate Pricing Program?
This program offers a 20% discount on all cannabis products (excluding cannabis accessories) for those whose annual income is less than $30,000. Whether you want to consume dried herb, oil, distillate for your vape, or the upcoming edibles coming to our online store, the CPP allows you to save money so you can focus on your health.
Not only can you pay less for your medicine using this pricing program, every cannabis consumer -- whether they qualify for the CPP or not, can additionally claim their medical cannabis on their tax return, helping to save even more. To learn how to claim cannabis as a medical expense, read this blog.
