Times are changing...
Since MediCann first opened its offices to the community, our providers have always been convinced of the medical efficacy of cannabis. Over the last 12 years, MediCann has seen the number of states joining the movement grow from 5 to 25 plus Washington D.C. The list of organizations that support medical cannabis include, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Nurses Association, the American Osteopathic Association, the American Preventive Medical Association, the American Public Health Association, the American Society of Addiction Medicine, the Lymphoma Foundation of America, The Montel Williams MS Foundation, Kaiser Permanente, the New England Journal of Medicine, and many more. High profile physicians, such as Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Dr. Dean Edell, and Dr. Andrew Weil also support cannabis for certain conditions. Those who continue to scoff at the potential of cannabis to help are simply without access to appropriate information or resource. Our discussion has changed from “Does cannabis help?” to “What does cannabis help?” The new MediCann would like to present itself as an intermediary to information and resources on the use of cannabis as medicine.
With greater acceptance comes greater responsibility…
Now, more than ever, there are so many questions. “Does it really cure cancer?” Can I use it and not get “high”? The many years of prohibition left vital questions unanswered. Science has eighty years of inactivity to overcome. MediCann takes on the responsibility of investigating some of the answers through its association with the Clinical Endocannabinoid System Consortium (The CESC), a non profit research organization and the launch of its flagship program, The Dosing Project. Additionally, MediCann educates patients on where to find the best cannabis preparations for their symptoms diagnosis through our new Medicine Locator. Our News and Events page will keep you up to date on the latest on the growing cannabis knowledge and industry. We still refer potential patients to top rated physicians who provide evaluations for optimal and legal medical cannabis use. Our Doctor Locator page provides you with contact information to assist in scheduling an appointment by phone or email.
Not everything changes….
Science has identified potential for anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, anti-seizure, anesthetic, anti-diabetic, anti-anxiety, anti-depressant and sleep agents all from the chemical components of the cannabis plant. Pharmaceutical companies are preparing cannabis based medicines for sale and financial investors are placing their bets on the best cannabis product. Our grassroots movement has blossomed into a burgeoning industry. Yet, you can still grow it easily and inexpensively in your backyard. We have a lot more to know. Throughout its existence, MediCann has always supported patients. As MediCann brings you more information and resources, our fundamental mission will not change. We look forward to many years as your partner in cannabis and health.
