why recreational cannabis users should consider becoming medical users
As recreational cannabis use becomes more and more accepted, many users are wondering if they should switch over to medical use. Medical cannabis users have access to a variety of benefits that recreational users do not. In this post, we will discuss why recreational cannabis users should consider becoming medical users, including the ability to deduct cannabis as a medical expense with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), the health benefits of having a health professional monitor and advise on dosing, discounted costs of cannabis, and the fact that getting a prescription from High Hopes and its affiliated health professionals is free.
The CRA allows Canadians to deduct their medical cannabis expenses from their taxes as long as they have a valid prescription. This means that medical users can deduct their purchases on their taxes and save money in the long run. On top of this, medical users are also eligible for discounts when purchasing cannabis due to the fact that it is considered a medicine rather than a recreational product.
Another benefit of becoming a medical user is having access to professional monitoring and advice on dosage from a healthcare professional. This can help ensure that individuals are not taking too much or too little, which can be especially beneficial for those who are new to using cannabis for medicinal purposes. Additionally, having access to professional advice can help individuals make sure that they are using the right strains for their specific needs.
Finally, getting a prescription from High Hopes and its affiliated health professionals is free. This makes it easier for individuals to access medical cannabis without worrying about costly fees associated with getting a prescription from other sources.
There are numerous benefits associated with switching from recreational to medical cannabis use. From being able to deduct expenses with CRA and enjoy discounts on purchases due to them being considered medicine rather than recreational products, to having access to professional monitoring and advice on dosage as well as free prescriptions through High Hopes and its affiliated health professionals – there is no doubt that switching over has its advantages.
