Edible derivatives of medical cannabis in the Greater Victoria Area are essential to a large number of medical cannabis users in the city.

It is easier to determine dosage using edibles from a professional producer than to estimate smoke-able concentrations for dosing, or to bake them at home, Edibles are the healthiest and most effective vehicle for most medical cannabis users and it is a problem to prohibit their sale in cannabis related businesses.

Edibles are used to produce a longer-lasting effect that assists with pain relief and aids sleep, and this is imperative for those struggling with conditions like chronic pain, advanced disease, or seeking relief from the effects of radiation and chemotherapy.

The patients who need it the most are those who are most limited in their ability to consume cannabis by other methods, and have the least capacity to bake these edible derivative products themselves. Regulations should exist to protect the patient, not prevent them from receiving the medicine they need.

Patients who cannot consume their medicine any other way are forced to use their own methods of extraction and production to create their own edibles at home. However, this creates a very serious problem with inaccurate dosage levels and imposes unnecessary labor on those with the least capacity. Professionally produced edibles from established and experienced producers can be trusted with accuracy of dosage and quality of product.

Ensure that edible cannabis products are not prohibited from those who need it most.

Sign the petition to enlist your support for making edible cannabis products available in storefront dispensaries in the City of Victoria's proposed regulations for cannabis dispensaries.
