Canada Is Getting Older: Spectrum Therapeutics partners with CARP to simplify the conversation around medical cannabis for its members

April 12, 2019 Spectrum Therapeutics

As the fastest-growing segment of medical cannabis users, older Canadians need information they can trust and a simple way to access safe and effective products. This is why we have partnered with CARP, Canada’s largest advocacy association dedicated to improving the lives of Canadians as we age.


The partnership will see Spectrum Therapeutics offer tailored educational initiatives for over 320,000 CARP members seeking more information on medical cannabis, along with preferred pricing for Spectrum Therapeutics branded products which have received the “CARP Recommended” seal.  


Older Canadians are hungry for education

Understanding the utility of medical cannabis is increasingly becoming of interest to older Canadians, especially its potential to displace other, less-desirable therapeutics for both pain and cognitive function.  The appeal of Spectrum Therapeutics, particularly with this demographic, is the simplification around strength and dosage of our products by applying a colour-coding system to categorize medical cannabis products according to THC and CBD levels.


“Our partnership with CARP will help provide accurate information and standardized products to a patient demographic that is highly engaged in learning more about how medical cannabis may be able to help them,” said Mark Ware, Chief Medical Officer, Spectrum Therapeutics. “Older Canadians living with chronic pain, mood disorders like anxiety and depression, and sleep problems deserve to better understand that medical cannabis is a potential therapeutic option for these and a range of other symptoms.”

“As this new therapeutic industry continues to blossom in Canada, inaccurate and misleading information can be very detrimental to patients’ health and wellbeing, as is self-medication through the recreational system,” said Moses Znaimer, CARP president. “Accordingly, Zoomers are eager for knowledge and assistance regarding medical cannabis. After surveying the market carefully, we can confidently recommend the medical cannabis products offered by Spectrum Therapeutics. Equally important, the company is not only devoted to the science-based medical cannabis of today but also research and development into improved strains and delivery formats for the future.”
