Tweed, one of Canada's first medical cannabis producers, recently renamed Canopy Growth Corporation, has opened a dispensary in Guelph. The storefront now known as Better by Tweed, opened Oct. 15 and is the town’s first dispensary.
In September, Tweed purchased MedCannAccess a company focused on helping new medical marijuana patients and acquired the group’s three community access centres in Guelph, Hamilton and the Greater Toronto Area. The Hamilton location opened earlier in the week and Better by Tweed will soon expand with the Etobicoke Better Centre.
The MedCannAccess locations had helped cannabis patients register with a licensed producer.
The Better by Tweed operation will provide patients with information packages to bring to their doctors to fill out and then return to the store where they can place orders for cannabis from Tweed’s production facilities in Smiths Falls, Toronto and Niagara-on-the-Lake.
“There will always be a market for medical marijuana, and, if the time comes, we’re well equipped for recreational use as well,” said Tweed president Mark Zekulin.
