The cannabis industry is barely surviving right now, just like most other businesses that are impacted by widespread closures due to COVID-19, but there are still plenty of players out there who have great big hearts, and they’re showing it by helping their community and customers as much as they can. With millions out of work, very little to do, and few options, particularly for patients who rely on CBD products to maintain a good quality of life, some of the biggest and best companies are stepping up to the plate by offering compassion pricing to those who qualify.

Since we wanted to help out as many of our readers as possible, this list includes CBD brands that carry products like CBD flower, isolate, edibles, or vaping goods from both the US and Canada, so be sure to check each website’s shipping terms before ordering. Some will mail CBD goods to customers in both countries, and others prefer to do their business closer to home, but they all have the same good intention in common, which is to help out the people and patients who need them now that the ‘going’s gotten tough.’

1. CanniMed

If you’re in need of a CBD vape, CBD isolate, CBD oil, or CBD flower, and are in receipt of either disability or some other government subsidy program, then CanniMed might be able to help you to save some money. CanniMed is a Canadian cannabis producer that was recently acquired by Aurora, and they have one of the largest selections of products out of anyone on this list. Unfortunately, the compassion discount of 25% is only available to a select number of consumers, but those who get it can order any of their medicinal cannabis products at a really great rate.

2. cbdMD

cbdMD makes some pretty fantastic medicinal products in the United States including CBD tincture, CBD oil, CBD rollers, and more, and one of the most widely praised things about this company is that they make everything from organically grown hemp, using no GMO’s or toxic fertilizers that might impact quality or safety of both their products and the environment. cbdMD also offers a heavy discount program of 40% off for customers with disabilities, and 30% discounts for veterans off any of their medicinal products, which includes some fun options like CBD bath bombs, gummies, and more.

3. Tilray


Tilray is one of the largest cannabis companies in Canada, and they’re doing their part by offering qualifying customers a 25% discount off one of their medicinal oils. This brand's compassionate pricing program is geared towards people who are earning a low income, treating pediatric patients, and anyone who is in palliative care. Their prized 2:100 CBD oil may be the only thing you can get at this reduced rate, but it’s also their most effective and clinically proven recipe, so we were really happy to hear about this fantastic program.

4. Bluebird Botanicals

Bluebird Botanicals is most widely known for transparency, as they’re one of the only CBD brands to offer easy and direct access to their third party testing results, but we’re mentioning them here today because of their amazing assistance program that is one of the most inclusive ones out there. Qualifying customers include veterans, teachers, low-income households, civil servants, students, and anyone in receipt of disability. Anyone listed can get a 20% discount and choose from a broad range of medicinal products that all comes from some of the highest quality CBD flower in the entire country.

5. Lazarus Naturals

Lazarus Naturals is a smaller Portland-based operation, but they still help thousands of people each year by advocating for equal access and improving the affordability of CBD products for those who need them the most. They are also offering one of the heaviest discounts out of anyone, which ranges from between 40% and 60%, depending on your situation. To qualify, you’ll need to be on long term disability, making a low income, or have proof of your status as a veteran, and once approved, you’ll have access to both full-spectrum and CBD isolate options aplenty.
