Cameron Ogden, a business student at Trent University, says he’s planning to open his own marijuana store in downtown Peterborough – one that would sell products only for medical use.
Ogden, 24, studies business and entrepreneurship at Trent. He says his new store downtown store will be called Trent Holistic Centre.
He’ll sell marijuana for smoking, as well as cannabis products for topical use such as salves and bath salts.
Ogden said he would ask customers to speak with him first about their medical conditions – and fill out forms – to determine whether his products could be helpful.
Only then would he sell you marijuana. It’s a model used by several stores in Toronto such as Canna Clinic, he said – except they have a nurse practitioner and a doctor do assessments.
Ogden said he plans to have a nurse practitioner too, once the store gets established.
