How is Medically Compliant Weed Different?

The reason Canna West Seattle is in the cannabis business is because of medical marijuana. Its owner has deep roots in the medical pot scene. In fact, Canna West is currently one of the few ‘medically licensed’ dispensaries in all of West Seattle. As a result, the store’s customers often ask what gives cannabis a medical designation, so I thought it would be nice to break it down here, for you.
The WA Department of Health and the WA State Liquor Cannabis Board offers a Medical Marijuana Product Compliance program that gives medical use customers the option to purchase cannabis that has been produced without the use of:
Essentially, if you are buying medical grade cannabis you are buying what Canna West classifies as Clean Cannabis. In addition to providing regulations to promote safer products, the DOH and WSLCB’s medical compliance program also provides customer choice, allowing consumers the choice of purchasing medical compliant or regular products. It also allows consumers to purchase high CBD/low THC products sales tax-free.
One of the brands featured at Canna West, Eagle Trees of Bellingham, not only qualifies under DOH/WSLCB’s medical compliance program, it is also Dragonfly Earth Medicine Certified. What does that mean? According to Dragonfly Earth Medicine, “a Pure Certificate redefines what the Cannabis industry sees as pure, clean medicine.”
Essentially a Dragonfly Pure Certificate is one of the most difficult grower compliances to obtain as it not only implements the practices recognized by King County, but also a commitment to medicine, regenerative farming practices and more.
If a cannabis flower brand is Dragonfly Earth Medicine certified I am its target consumer, not because I’m a medical user, but because it represents some of the finest cannabis flower grown on this planet.
The folks at Eagle Trees – Jesse and Kenny, do it right!
