A local business has recently opened shop to add its presence to the growing medical cannabis trade.
Cannabis Supply Co. in St. Catharines is a retailer of medical cannabis supplies, including bongs, pipes and vaporizers.
But its core service is as a provider of clinics to help people obtain a medical cannabis licence approved by Health Canada.
Sarah Havard, manager of the recently opened store at 314 Lake St., at Nihan Drive, describes a process that uses a telemedicine appointment on the premises in a private room with a licensed Ontario doctor.
“We do carry the paraphernalia, but that’s not what our goal is,” she says, explaining the business operates as a support clinic that works with Health Canada-licensed cannabis producer Tilray from Nanaimo, B.C.
