From a Jamaican Dream to a Canadian Reality

Cannabis Health
February, 2003


Providing a legal, therapeutic cannabis to the Canadian market has been a dream come true for the founders of Med Marijuana Inc., Michael and Melanie Patriquen. They have seen first hand the health wonders of the cannabis plant during their time spent in Jamaica in the '70s & '80s. Cannabis was being used in most of the homes for many different ailments, ranging from influenza to arthritis, and for more serious disorders such as chronic pain.

When Canada finally cracked open the door to total legalization by allowing the production and distribution of low THC cannabis, Med Marijuan Inc. was born. From years of accumulated research between them, they knew that low THC cannabis had been effectively used to treat high blood pressure, arthritis, high cholesterol and weakened immune systems. Research determined the most benefical type of low THC cannabis to grow, as well as the best area in Canada for doing it. Then a licensed cannabis grower was chosen to provide raw cannabis for the company's product. At the same time, financing, marketing, distribution, production and packaging was being set up and coordinated.

In the Summer of 2001 the first crop for Med Marijuana Inc. was harvested, the oil was extracted from the plants in an "inert environment" (on a cold press in the absence of oxygen and light to preserve the delicate medicinal qualities). After micro bioligical testing is completed, the extract is packed into vegan gel caps and then into plastic containers to be distributed throughout Canada.

Med Marijuana Inc. has been moving forward ever since. They have wholesale and retail distributors in every province as well as a recent agreement with an agent to provide global marketing via the internet.
The success of the product has been proven through its personal benefit to our clients, some who have become wholesale distributors themselves. Age has never been a barrier for the inquiring customer.

In our expanding business we have recently introduced a new veterinary suplement, Medi-Paws-tm. Med Marijuana benefis all mammals and is guaranteed to make your "critter fitter".Under development is a cannabis weight gain product for those suffering "Wasting Syndrome" and along with their cannabis epidermal lotion, are expected to be on the market later this year.
