Zenabis recognizes the sacrifices made by those who have served in our country’s armed forces.
Several key members of the Zenabis team are serving members or veterans of the Canadian Armed Forces. As a result, the ethos of ‘service before self’ guides our company as we strive for excellence as a leading provider of medicinal cannabis in Canada.
You bravely fought for our values. Your courage deserves our respect. Your sacrifice lets us be free.
We thank Canadian heroes for their service by offering Canadian Armed Forces Veterans access to high-quality medical cannabis at a discounted price through our Veterans Pricing Program. This program is available to all CAF veterans with a Veteran’s Service Card, regardless of their client status with Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC).
There are two versions of the Veterans Pricing Program, depending on a veteran’s status with VAC:
Veterans holding a Veteran’s Service Card who are not VAC clients are eligible to purchase medical cannabis from Zenabis at a discounted rate of $5/gram of dried flower.
Veterans holding a Veteran’s Service Card and who are VAC clients with a Medavie Blue Cross number are eligible to purchase up to 150 grams of prescribed medical cannabis per month at a 100% discount.
We will coordinate direct billing with VAC so veterans who are covered by Medavie Blue Cross do not have to pay for medical cannabis out of pocket.
From all of us at Zenabis, thank you for your service.

If you are ready to enroll in Zenabis’ Veterans Pricing Program, please complete the following two steps:
Step 1: Register with Zenabis as a medical cannabis patient
The Veterans Pricing Program is offered exclusively to Zenabis medical cannabis clients. To sign up with Zenabis, please follow the steps on our Medical Cannabis Patient Registration page and select Veterans Pricing Program before you submit your application for registration. You will need to speak to your health care provider to obtain a completed Medical Document.
Step 2: Send Zenabis proof of service and proof of VAC coverage, if applicable
Send Zenabis a copy of your Veteran’s Service Card and your Medavie Blue Cross number (if applicable), by mail, fax, or email to:
After we receive your documents, please allow 2-3 business days for processing. You will be notified by e-mail about the status of your application.
Once you are approved, your price adjustment will be applied automatically to your orders for the remainder of the term specified in your Medical Document. You will not need to re-submit proof of service when renewing your medical document.
The Veterans Pricing Program provides veterans with access to high-quality medical cannabis at a discounted price. It is our way of saying thank you for your service.
We will work with Veterans Affairs Canada to coordinate coverage and provide discounted medical cannabis to VAC clients covered by Medavie Blue Cross, so veterans do not have to pay out of pocket for up to 150 grams of prescribed medical cannabis per month.
For veterans who hold a Veteran’s Service Card but are not VAC clients, we are proud to offer medical cannabis at a discounted rate of $5/gram of dried flower.
For veterans who are not VAC clients, Zenabis will cover the costs of prescribed medical cannabis above $5/gram. For example, if you purchase a medical cannabis product that normally costs $12.50/gram, Zenabis will cover $7.50/gram, and you will only pay $5/gram.
Under VAC’s current policy, veterans receiving coverage Medavie Blue Cross as VAC clients can be reimbursed by VAC for up to 3 grams of dried cannabis (or cannabis oil equivalent) per day, up to a maximum price of $8.50/gram. Zenabis will cover all costs above $8.50/gram for 3 grams per day, up to 150 grams of medical cannabis per month. Zenabis will also work directly with VAC to coordinate coverage so veterans do not have to pay out of pocket for medical cannabis.
We are pleased to offer enrollment in our Veterans Pricing Program to all honourably-discharged Canadian Armed Forces veterans with a Veteran’s Service Card and a Medical Document for medical cannabis.
Additional coverage is available to VAC clients with a Medavie Blue Cross Card.
You must also register with Zenabis as a medical cannabis patient in order to be eligible for this discount program.
Signing up for the Veterans Pricing Program can be done in two simple steps detailed above. Please note that you will need to speak to your health care provider to get a completed Medical Document, which is your prescription for medical cannabis.
Yes. In order to purchase medical cannabis from Zenabis, you must register with Zenabis as a medical cannabis client.
If you are already registered as a medical cannabis client with a different licensed provider, improvements to the Cannabis Act now allow medical cannabis patients to request the transfer of their Medical Document to a different federally licensed seller. Please speak to your licensed provider if you would like to transfer your Medical Document to Zenabis.
Access to medical cannabis requires a Medical Document, which is like a prescription. Only licensed health care practitioners can complete Medical Documents for medical cannabis. Please speak to your health care provider to determine if medical cannabis is right for you.
The Veterans Pricing Program is designed to assist veterans of the Canadian Armed Forces and current Veterans Affairs Canada clients access medical cannabis. We will be expanding our Veterans program to a broader category of patients in the future so please stay tuned.
