Medical Marijuana Certifications

What is Medical Marijuana?

Benefits: 

Medical Marijuana (MMJ) is a natural alternative for pain relief with little to no side effects. It helps modulate inflammation therefore reducing overall pain. Many patients report that as a result of reducing their pain they can sleep better, are able to relax, and have overall less stress. 

MMJ is a great alternative for patients with debilitating medical conditions, patients that have suffered various unwanted side effects from medications, and patients seeking an alternative to opioid use.
