Imagine you are a new medical marijuana patient in Canada. You suffer from various ailments and you’ve done your research. You know cannabis helps you and is more effective than the pills you’ve been on for years. You have a basic idea of what you’re looking for; you may even know the names of some strains that help alleviate your symptoms and allow you to function as a somewhat normal human being.
But you’re not done. How do you know what you’re buying is what you need? Even in Canada medical marijuana is a relatively new industry and standards are just now being formed and regulated.
