Welcome to the Canadian home of Med Marijuana™. We have been researching the health benefits of the cannabis sativa plant for over twenty five years and the benefits of that work are ready now for you, in our produce. Our natural health products are all manufactured from 100% organic cannabis sativa, grown especially for you on the finest agricultural land in the country.

Whether you are searching for a product for yourself, a relative, a pet or even your horse- we have developed products for all mammals because we believe that all creatures deserve optimum health. We invite you to come in and Read More...

We do it all for you. During the early stages of our research we looked at the health maintenace practices of rural third world areas. These people did not have the convenience of a pharamacy around the corner to sell them a drug for every conceivable situation- they had to make do with what was on the land. A large part of their pharmacopia were preparations made from cannabis sativa- which, we went on to learn, has been used for an untold number of health issues since time began...

People today are tired of ingesting synthetic molecules optimized for profit and not for health. People wish to return to the simple, effective natural health alternatives found in nature.

Med Marijauna™ distributors are people who care. We did not attempt to mass market our products as so many others do. We wanted our produce to be made available to all who could benefit from it. To accomplish this, we began our company with a unique system of community based distribution. We put the products into the communities- where they belonged. We now have community distributors in every area of the country. Call or email today to find the one closest to you for a free consultation or visit our distribution section here.

Recently, to broaden the reach of the products, we have made the products available in select retail outlets. Not mass merchandisers who put things on a shelf and leave you to sort through them, but stores that knew the products and knew health- health food stores, naturaopaths offices, veterinary clinics and such. Click here to find one close to you...

Our company and our products have always been found newsworthy due to the facts that they are unique, effective and natural. We are quite proud of them and are posting some to this site for you to see too... We've begun with some press clippings which may be accessed here.

Shortly we will be adding some TV and radio spots as well...stay tuned!
