Forces & Families on Monday announced a new partnership with CannTrust, the only pharmacist-controlled and operated producer of medical cannabis in Canada.

Created in 2007, Forces & Families is a Canadian volunteer organization that provides support to Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members and their families. Under the leadership of founder and chairman John Randolph, Forces & Families has helped raise charitable monies in support of the Military Families Fund and also involve CAF men and women, their families and veterans to connect with Canadians to help build mutual understanding, awareness and respect.

"Today's partnership announcement with CannTrust adds to our growing list of significant corporate supporters from across Canada," Randolph said. "Support comes in many shapes whether it's special events for members of the Canadian Armed Forces, their families and veterans or fundraising for the Military Families Fund.

"This new relationship with CannTrust will assist us not only in these areas but will also offer education, awareness and support to help address some of the critical health and wellness issues faced by the CAF, Veterans and their families," Randolph said.

Throughout 2015, Forces & Families said it will continue to increase the awareness of CAF members and their families and also provide a series of visible support mechanisms aimed at fighting illnesses such as PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) with a goal of helping its members achieve mental wellness.

CannTrust, which describes itself as "Canada's only pharmacist-controlled and operated producer and distributor of medical cannabis," on Friday announced an incentive offer for qualified patients that encourages vapouizing to consume medical cannabis.

In a partnership with Arizer, a Canadian manufacturer of personal vaporizers, patients can now access the latest in vapor technology with an exclusive price for three devices, not offered at these prices by any other Health Canada approved provider of medical cannabis, according to CannTrust.

"Patient safety is our priority and we've built our business on that," says Normal Paul, chairman of CannTrust. "We've created a state-of-the-art growing and testing facility to ensure our patients have access to consistent quality medical cannabis in Canada. It would be irresponsible for us not to make every effort to ensure patients have access to safe consumption and that is what our vaporizer program is all about."

CannTrust patients who place any order of 15 grams or more of medical cannabis can purchase one of three vaporizers for the lowest price in Canada. The patient can choose from three different starter packs depending on which vaporizer model selected.

Combo pack A includes the Solo model for $250, which includes the vaporizer and 15 grams of medical cannabis. (Just a Solo model retails for $224.) More advanced packages include the Extreme model with 15 grams of medical cannabis for $265 or the Air model for only $295.

CannTrust Inc., a licensed producer and distributor of medical cannabis in Canada, today announced CannTrust Access, a comprehensive patient assistance program for medical cannabis compassionate use in Canada.

The CannTrust Access program is a Canadian first in medical cannabis programs and is available immediately to eligible Canadians whose health plans do not reimburse medical cannabis.

To enroll, a patient must have a signed CannTrust medical form from their physician, the required qualifying documents listed at canntrust.ca, a letter from their physician indicating a need for financial assistance to access medical cannabis, and proof of their financial status (Revenue Canada Notice of Assessment).

Qualified patients will be eligible for up to 30 grams of medical marijuana per month. Three levels of financial assistance are available through the CannTrust Access program depending on the patient's income status, which will be reassessed every six months.

CannTrust anticipates that a number of patients' financial status will qualify them to receive their monthly order at no cost. A patient is obliged to notify CannTrust if their status changes in any manner.
