Cannabis can provide relief for patients with numerous medical conditions

Could medical cannabis be a therapeutic option for you or your loved one?

Some patients are hesitant to use cannabis and do not realize that it has been consumed as a safe medicine for thousands of years.  In fact, cannabis was part of the U.S. Pharmacopeia from 1850-1942.  In 1970, cannabis was categorized as a Schedule 1 substance.  However, 28 states have passed medical cannabis laws so their citizens are able to have safe legal access to this plant based medicine.  There is plenty of data showing that cannabis has a stronger safety profile than many federally legal substances like alcohol, tobacco, and prescription drugs like opioids and benzodiazepines.
