Medical Cannabis Program

    The reliable and responsible choice for employees facing medical conditions that can be treated with cannabis.

    Specialized advisors and ongoing support

    Employees can connect with medical cannabis advisors for guidance, advice, and support with the treatment of their condition. Our program has rigorously and carefully selected Licensed Producers and high-quality products to help employees safely get their conditions under control.
