Education

If you’re new to medical marijuana, you likely have a lot of questions. Patient education starts with understanding that medical marijuana works differently than traditional prescription drugs.

Most of our patients come to us to reduce or eliminate their reliance on traditional prescriptions, or because their doctors reduced their dosages to prevent other side effects and health risks.

Others come because their medications simply aren’t effective any more, or because they prefer simple, clean, natural solutions for traditional ailments.

Whatever your personal reason for considering medical marijuana, we think you’ll find it a refreshing alternative!

Medical marijuana: a natural alternative

Rather than just treating symptoms, medical marijuana seeks to address the underlying causes of symptoms – and, because it’s plant-derived, any side effects are naturally processed within the body.

Here’s how it works: medical marijuana seeks to balance the body’s own natural endocannabinoid system – a system we’re all born with, but which can be damaged over time by disease, injury, and ordinary aging.

When any part of this natural system gets disrupted, other parts work harder to compensate. Over time, that causes disruption throughout the entire body, and results in ailments such as advanced disease, chronic pain, inflammation, fatigue, and other life-limiting conditions.

Medical marijuana seeks to bring the endocannabinoid system back into its naturally-balanced state, helping the body from the inside out.

Patient freedom

Medical marijuana provides a refreshing option for patients – empowering each patient with choices of what type of effects they want to experience, how strong, and how often:

  • Patients new to cannabis will find a variety of options to meet their needs. Our dedicated Patient Advisors are always available to answer questions, and will happily take the time to guide even the most novice of patients on the best options to meet their needs.
  • Connoisseurs of cannabis will be equally happy with our large selection of high quality flower, concentrates, edibles and more – often at the most affordable price in town. Whether a patient wants a speedy stop on their lunch break, or an in depth discussion on product-specific details, our Patient Advisors are ready to provide the highest level of patient service.
  • Patients who would like relief without experiencing psychoactive effects will appreciate options with THCA – a form of THC that can provide similar relief, without the high. We also have a CBD store open to the public age 21+, and multiple options for safe, tested, CBD products.
  • Patients looking to learn more, we offer a number of classes – most at no charge. Education is a top priority for our team. We want to support our community in making the best possible choices for their needs.

The point is, you’re the one who is in charge of what you need and how you want to feel. Our Patient Advisor’s job is to present you with product options that can help you meet your personal challenges and goals. The choices are entirely yours.
