Canada’s First Home Health Care Provider To Carry Medical Cannabis Access For Clients!
Are you seeking Medicinal Cannabis? Loving Home Care Services is pleased to be partnered with Apollo Cannabis & Spectrum Therapeutics – a medical division of Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX: WEED.TO) – as Canada’s first home health care provider to provide online access, education and support for ageing adults, seniors and immediate family members.
It may surprise you to know that the fastest-growing demographic for medical cannabis use is for seniors. Since 2014, according to a publication by Schauer et al., in the American Journal Preventative Medicine in 2016, there has been about a 700% growth with adults over the age of 50 utilizing medical cannabis.
Cannabis has been legal for medical use in Canada since 2001 under different regulations. Fast forward to 2017 and in a monumental moment on October 17th cannabis became federally legal for recreational consumption. The history behind cannabis starts much earlier than most know of as far as about 5,000 years back it was being used as a medicine. Commonly used in the 1800s and early 1900s, however, under the first federal marijuana law of 1937 in the United States the substance was prohibited and effectively banned the use of cannabis.
