tired of having your cannabis package confiscated by Canada Post? become a medical user
As the acceptance of cannabis as a legitimate therapeutic remedy continues to grow, so does the number of people turning to medical cannabis for relief from a variety of conditions. For recreational users considering making the switch to medical cannabis, there are several compelling reasons to make the switch.
The most immediate benefit for recreational users who become medical users is the ability to deduct medical cannabis expenses from their income taxes. The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has allowed medical cannabis expenses to be claimed as a medical expense since 2001. This means that if you are a registered medical cannabis user, you can deduct your expenses related to the purchase of cannabis from your income taxes, making it more affordable overall.
Another advantage of becoming a medical user is that it allows you to access discounted prices on your cannabis purchases. Medical users are able to purchase their medicine at lower prices than recreational users, since it is not subject to taxation and other fees associated with recreational sales. Additionally, because it is legal in Canada, packages won’t be confiscated in the mail and all products are thoroughly tested for harmful pesticides and insecticides.
In addition to the financial benefits of becoming a medical user, there are also important health benefits associated with having a health professional monitor and advise on dosing. A qualified health professional can help ensure that you’re taking the right dosage for your condition and can also provide advice on how best to use cannabis as part of an overall wellness plan. This can be particularly beneficial for those who are new to using cannabis therapeutically or those who need help managing their symptoms or side effects.
Finally, getting a prescription from High Hopes and its affiliated health care professionals is free of charge. This means that for recreational users looking to make the switch to medical use, there is no cost associated with obtaining a prescription and beginning treatment with medicinal cannabis.
In summary, recreational users should consider making the switch to medical use due to its many advantages: deductions on taxes; discounted pricing; access to qualified health professionals; and free prescriptions from High Hopes and its affiliated health professionals. Ultimately, making the switch can save money while ensuring access to quality-tested products with personalized dosing advice from a qualified professional – all while avoiding potential confiscation in the mail due to its legal status in Canada.
