Acceptance into this program is approved on a case by case basis considering, but not exclusively, financial data as well as personal hardships.

VidaCann Assistance FAQ
Who can apply for VidaCann assistance?
If you’ve created a RoC Client Portal account(by signing up, it’s free!), and are (or plan to be) using one of the products that VidaCann sells, then you can apply. Multiple members of the same family may apply using separate applications. We continually break our previous record of the number of applicants per quarter, so be sure to also consider if you can garner help from your family, friends, or fund-raisers.
Previous assistance recipients are not eligible to reapply.
If I’m accepted, how will I receive the assistance?If accepted, you will receive a hard copy of your award letter on a monthly basis. You must present the letter and photo ID at your local VidaCann dispensary to redeem the subsidy.
For how long can I receive financial aid?If you’re accepted, you may remain in the program for up to one year, if you comply with our Terms and Conditions.
I submitted my application, when will I hear back?The Realm Cares Council reviews applications on a biannual basis, as listed above. You will hear back from the council within one month of the application deadline, via email (so check your Spam/Junk folder just in case).
Can I opt out of the program at any time?Yes, if you no longer need or want the assistance, please let us know and you will be removed from the program. You may reapply if needed, but we cannot guarantee re-entry.
If accepted, how much will I receive?The council determines the assistance amount based a number of factors, such as the clients’ diagnoses, financial information, and weight. Assistance amounts can vary between $50 and $150 per month.
Who is part of the Realm Cares Council that makes the decision on the process?The Realm Cares Council is comprised of compassionate, caring people who are familiar with the daily struggles that occur when chronic, debilitating conditions impact a family or individual. Currently, the council consists of a parent of a child who is medically complex, a RoC staff member, and a community member- one involved in the medical cannabis field, and the other in home healthcare.
