Rylan Usselman has depended on cannabis to treat migraines and insomnia for the past two years, but after his licensed cannabis producer ran out of the type of cannabis he uses, he ran into a challenge.
Canadians have to order medical cannabis directly from the Health Canada-licensed producer (LP) they’re registered with. When the 28-year-old Saskatchewan resident wanted to try a different licensed producer, he discovered he would have to obtain his health document from his producer, and then re-register with another.
Cannmart, a new company owned by Namaste Technologies Inc., has emerged to address problems commonly faced by Canada’s medical cannabis consumers. While some licensed producers are signing supply agreements with pharmacies, Cannmart is taking a different approach: it was recently granted its Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) production license with the plan to become the country’s first aggregator of cannabis – meaning that if one LP runs out of your precious high-CBD cannabis oil, you could simply buy another brand’s offerings from the same shop. All suppliers will be sourced from both Canadian and International producers, such as Marigold Projects Jamaica Ltd.
