Corporate Social Responsibility
At Tilray, our mission is to improve patients’ lives through the power of medicinal cannabis by building the world’s most trusted and valued medicinal cannabis company. On this mission, we’re committed to work together with researchers, physicians, authorities and governments to reduce barriers for medicinal cannabis legalization around the world while supporting global access, advocacy and understanding.
Patient Advocacy and Access
We believe that patients around the world should have access to safe, high-quality and affordable medicinal cannabis. Our efforts to achieve this goal include:
Tilray sponsors ‘Medical Cannabis Today’, a journal written by and for health care providers, and is working with healthcare providers to launch ‘Cannab_Is Medicine’, a hub for patients and healthcare professionals to get the latest information on medicinal cannabis treatments. We also continue to present cannabis research at medical conferences and for patient groups globally.
Fighting for reasonable taxation
Tilray works with regulators and governments around the world, urging them to minimize taxes of pharmaceutical medications such as medicinal cannabis. We do this e.g. in Canada by testifying before the Canadian House of Commons and Senate, and by partnering with Canadians for Fair Access to Medicinal Marijuana in support of a patient-led campaign and petition to end taxation.
Improving coverage of cannabis-based treatments
Tilray is researching patient use in multiple conditions and is partnering with leading hospitals and universities across the globe to advance the clinical applications of cannabinoids. On top of that, we are working with insurers trying to increase cost-coverage for patients being treated with medicinal cannabis.
