Patient Success Story: Richard

Due to an injury as a teenager,  I have suffered from chronic lower back pain for over fifty-five years. I’ve been through surgery, physical therapy, chiropractors, injections, muscle relaxers, and other pills but while they all provided some temporary relief, none were a permanent solution.

Tell me a little bit about how you were first introduced to cannabis therapy:  My sister turned me on to it, I was thirteen years old at a Grateful Dead concert. She’d talked to me about it before.

The Herbivore: Special Holiday Edition

The holiday season can be busy: filled with travel plans, dinners, parties — the list goes on. Without proper care, the season can easily go from magical to manic. This is why so many people experience heightened depression and anxiety during the holidays. Beyond simple exhaustion, some might notice amplified loneliness, nervousness, inability to sleep,…

Stoner Stereotypes No Longer Apply

Persistent stoner stereotypes equate using cannabis with being lazy, boring and unproductive. Movies (Dazed and Confused, Fast Times At Ridgemont High) and music (“But Then I Got High”), have capitalized on these negative assumptions about cannabis. These depictions have permeated our imaginations and convinced us that anything with THC eliminates all motivation. Today, though, the reality…
