(TSX-V:WMD) (“WeedMD” or the “Company”), a federally licensed producer of medical cannabis, is pleased to announce that it will begin selling cannabis clones to patients registered for home grow under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations.
“With the recent announcement launching sales of dried cannabis and now sales of cannabis plants, we look forward to serving medical patients with our high quality genetics,” said Bruce Dawson-Scully, CEO of WeedMD. “We are extremely supportive of home grow and are excited to offer access to our unique genetics to those that would prefer to grow their own medical cannabis.
