Here in Canada, we've had a long history with marijuana and cannabis culture. For decades, the cannabis community has fought to bring medical marijuana to patients and to put an end to prohibition. That battle has resulted in countless patients getting access to medicine and at long last, the start of legalization in our country. It's the start of a new age for marijuana, and we're proud to be a part of this historic shift.
The team at Sweet Leaf YYC has been a part of the cannabis community for over a decade. In that time, we've met expert growers, learned about strains and their effects, and connected with thousands of patients. As the country changes, we're ready to change with it. Capitalizing on our experience and connections, we're excited to offer a wide assortment of products on our website. Patients under the M.M.A.R and M.M.P.R can browse, learn about, and purchase from dozens of products that can help to alleviate many different ailments. But it's just not products that we offer. We want to connect to the community and provide accurate, engaging, and important information about cannabis.
As marijuana becomes more accessible and mainstream, information is going to be more important than ever. This blog -- and our detailed product descriptions -- are our outlet to connect with the world and share our years of experience. We're going to cover everything from the changing legal status of cannabis, the history of the plant, all the differences between strains and products, and cool stories. We love weed, let's be honest, and we are excited to share that love with people all over Canada. A good place to start is telling you a little about ourselves.
Sweet Leaf YYC is a new company, but we've been at this for years. Western Canada is home to some of the highest quality marijuana out there, and we're proud to be a part of this community. Our time has been spent traveling across the region, meeting with growers, dispensaries, and experts in the field. From the grow room to your room, we've seen the origins of this industry from seed to plant. With an end to prohibition on the horizon, it was natural to start a company to connect with people. Currently, our focus is with patients who are a part of M.M.A.R and M.M.P.R and making sure they get exactly the medicine they need. It's been a fun, interesting, and rewarding journey to get here, but the best is yet to come.
