The Difference between Buying Medical vs Recreational

Why purchase medically when recreational cannabis is legal? We hear this question all the time, and it’s our favorite to answer – because it’s cheaper! Most companies operating in the cannabis market right now offer products both medically on their secure website, and through recreational channels such as OCS.ca or dispensaries. Sometimes the products are identical but usually the branding is different, which means directly comparing medical vs recreational products can be very difficult if you don’t know the companies.

What we find in general is that the products available medically tend to be 10-15% cheaper than a similar or identical product on the Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS), and if you’re going to be using that product consistently that extra cost definitely adds up.

Don’t believe us? Here are some examples we found:

The Solei Balance Disposable Pen, 0.25g 

Recreational (ocs.ca) Medical (Licensed Producer Website)

On the Ontario Cannabis Store (ocs.ca), the Solei Balance Pen is $44.95. On Aphrias medical site (aphria.com) the exact same pen is $29.95

Tweed CBD Softgels, 20mg CBD

Recreational (ocs.ca) Medical (Licensed Producer Website)
 

On the OCS (ocs.ca), Tweed CBD softgels are $42.95 for 15 capsules ($85.90 for 30 capsules). On Spectrum Therapeutics medical site, the exact same capsules can be found under the Spectrum branding at $72 for 30 capsules.
