Direct Billing With Tweed & Veterans Affairs Canada.

Tweed will work directly with Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC) to verify coverage, arrange Direct Billing and ensure your coverage is seamless and fully supported throughout the entire process. It typically takes around 4-6 weeks for the approval to be received from VAC. Tweed will contact you when approval is received.

Cannabis Oils Coverage

Tweed is pleased to inform Veterans that coverage for cannabis oils is now available. For the time being you will need to call in to our care center to place your orders for oils. If you have purchased cannabis oils, you can submit your receipts to VAC for reimbursement. You can view and print your receipts by clicking on the order numbers visible in your order history, on the main page of your online account at Receipts can also be requested by emailing

Tweed Will Cover The Difference

VAC will cover the cost of $8.50 per gram. Tweed offers cost coverage on the difference for any of our strains that exceed that limit. This means, if you need a strain that is over $8.50 per gram, we’ll pay the difference. Every 3 years, Vets can claim $300 for a vaporizing device. At Tweed, we’ll cover the difference between the device you want and the device VAC will cover.

Approved Prior to Nov. 21st, 2016

For Veterans with Approval Letters from VAC dated prior to November 21st, 2016, Tweed will continue to cover the prescribed and approved amount. Tweed is also happy to cover the difference for any strains over $8.50 per gram. This means, the only changes for those who received approval prior to November 21st, 2016 is that you may now purchase cannabis oils and submit the receipts to VAC for reimbursement.

Approved After Nov. 21st, 2016

For Veterans with Approval Letters from VAC dated after November 21st, 2016, VAC requires additional documentation to cover more than 3 grams per day. Tweed is happy to make arrangements to process orders and accept payment for additional cannabis if you have been prescribed more than 3 grams per day. Regardless of the amount you order, we will only be able to invoice the initial 3 grams per day to VAC for you.
