A “Better” idea for marijuana dispensing

October 15, 2015  By Dave Harrison

Oct. 15, 2015, Smiths Falls, Ont. — Tweed Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canopy Growth Corporation, has launched “Better” – the only legal marijuana producer with a face-to-face customer service option for Canadians looking to learn about medicating with marijuana.

Better speaks to the core of marijuana as medicine. It isn’t a drug that cures conditions, it treats symptoms, making people feel better.

The name represents the company’s commitment to customers, to provide better access, better information and better quality products.


Better centres will act as community hubs for customers and patient groups who are looking for support and access to marijuana as a medicine.

 Patients, both active and prospective, will find the support they need with immediate assistance and real-time registration support and advice.


Better further integrates Tweed into local communities, building on outreach efforts with patient organizations, local police forces and municipal governments who are increasingly trying to determine what marijuana access should look like in their communities.

“We’re combining the best of both worlds with Better,” said Mark Zekulin, president of Tweed. “We are taking the support services traditionally provided by compassion clubs and combining it with a legal supply of regulated, clean and consistent marijuana products.

“There are many advantages to knowing where your medicine comes from, and accessing cannabis through a Better centre adds a personal touch to a company that’s always been committed to a transparent and accessible conversation about cannabis.”

Tweed has spent the last year building a growing platform that can service tens of thousands of customers with dried cannabis and, pending Health Canada approval, cannabis oils.

As the medical marijuana industry continues to accelerate, Better locations in Guelph, Hamilton and the Greater Toronto Area will help many more customers gain access to Tweed and its sister company Bedrocan.
