Tweed Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canopy Growth Corp. (TSXV:CGC) launched “Better,” a new patient support centre for medical cannabis patients in Canada.
As quoted in the press release:
Better speaks to the core of marijuana as medicine. It isn’t a drug that cures conditions, it treats symptoms, making people feel better. The name represents our commitment to customers: to provide better access, better information and better quality products.
Better centres will act as community hubs for customers and patient groups who are looking for support and access to marijuana as a medicine. Patients, both active and prospective, will find the support they need with immediate assistance and real-time registration support and advice. Better further integrates Tweed into our local communities, building on our outreach efforts with patient organizations, local police forces and municipal governments who are increasingly trying to determine what marijuana access should look like in their communities.
Mark Zekilin, president of Tweed Inc, commented:
We’re combining the best of both worlds with Better. We are taking the support services traditionally provided by compassion clubs and combining it with a legal supply of regulated, clean, and consistent marijuana products. There are many advantages to knowing where your medicine comes from, and accessing cannabis through a Better centre adds a personal touch to a company that’s always been committed to a transparent and accessible conversation about cannabis.
