We at Spectrum Therapeutics are pleased to introduce our new Older Adult Discount program, which offers an automatic 10% discount* to all current and new Spectrum customers aged 65 or older.
The discount currently offered to members of CARP will continue; this new discount expands on our commitment to older adults, and will benefit a much wider group that includes all other current and new Spectrum Therapeutics customers aged 65 or older.
The 10% discount is applied automatically at checkout. No code to apply. No forms to complete.
If you’re an older adult, there’s nothing to do but enjoy the savings!
Designed with the needs of older adult cannabis users in mind
We at Spectrum Therapeutics initiated this discount because we know that older adults are the fastest-growing group of medical cannabis users.
In 2012, only 1% of Canadians aged 65 or older was a medical cannabis user; in 2019, that number had grown to 7%, and it continues to increase.
More and more older adults worldwide are turning to medical cannabis for relief from chronic pain, arthritis, sleep difficulties, and other conditions not being treated well with traditional approaches. Medical cannabis treatment has even been shown to help older patients reduce their use of other medications, such as opioids.
Research shows that THC may be helpful for:
- Pain relief
- Relief from nausea
- Improving appetite
And that CBD may be helpful for:
- Reducing inflammation
- Improving sleep

Responding to the unique needs of older adults
We at Spectrum Therapeutics also understand that, due to their age or concurrent use of other medications, older adult cannabis users may face different challenges than younger consumers. That’s why we consider it important that older adults be able to purchase their medical cannabis from a reputable source—and do so affordably.
For the same reasons, we also believe that decisions regarding medical cannabis treatment should always be made in consultation with a trusted healthcare professional. If you’re an older adult who needs advice regarding medical cannabis, authorization to use medical cannabis, or help registering to order, please consult our Find a Physician page.
