64% of employees with workplace health plans agree that medical cannabis should be covered by their plan.¹

With injury, pain, and suffering prolific throughout the workforce, many workers have turned to dangerous medications such as opioids to simply get through another day.

This doesn’t have to be the case.

As patients continue to learn more about the benefits of medical cannabis, demand for benefits coverage is growing.

Employers should not assume that use of medical cannabis will impair an employee’s ability to do their job.

Starseed Medicinal is proud to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with LiUNA — Canada's largest construction union — in a growing global movement towards finding viable alternatives to opioids for treating chronic pain and other debilitating ailments.

19.5%

Legalizing medical marijuana was associated with a 19.5% reduction in the expected number of workplace fatalities among workers aged 25-44²

“We believe the members of LiUNA deserve access to innovative healthcare options. It is clear to us that medicinal cannabis is a critical part of treating chronic pain without the risk of dependency. Starseed's service-oriented approach and commitment to developing safe and reliable products are precisely why we chose them as our medicinal cannabis provider and invested in Starseed.”
