Cannabis

This flowering green plant has been used for 5,000 years throughout the world to treat a variety of ailments with minimal to no side effects when used properly. Learn more about cannabis facts vs. misconceptions.

CBD

CBD is a proven anti-inflammatory and neuroprotectant providing the perfect solution for those who want the medical benefits of cannabinoids, but do not want to feel "high".

Medical Cannabis


Many patients turn to cannabis because conventional therapies have proven ineffective, or because the side effects of traditional medications are unbearable. In the case of chronic pain and fibromyalgia patients, for example, cannabis is becoming the preferred alternative to opioid painkillers. Research shows that cannabis has a good safety profile, with no potential of overdose induced deaths, and with well-tolerated side effects.

Medical cannabis does not work for everyone, so the first question to consider is whether medical cannabis is right for you, your condition and the symptoms you are experiencing.

Education


Education about medical cannabis is the focus of Nurse Susan’s work. There is so much new information and so many old myths and misconceptions regarding cannabis that education is the key to effectively using medical cannabis. Walking into a dispensary can be an overwhelming experience for uninformed patients. Well-intentioned, yet untrained dispensary staff can create both a poor experience and ineffective treatment recommendations for patients seeking help. Traditionally trained medical professionals also are often uninformed on the latest research as medical cannabis use is making it initial steps into patient treatment. Nurse Susan works with each of these groups to provide timely information that is designed for their specific purpose.
