HEALING OUR HEROES Veteran's Day Event
On a chilly Saturday afternoon in November, we were happy to host Baltimore-area residents and future patients in a heated tent just outside the dispensary building for our first-ever educational event! Attendees were able to listen to an incredible line-up of speakers to learn about medical cannabis — how it's grown, processed, tested — and how it interacts with the body to treat a wide variety of ailments.
Veteran's Day is especially important to our team at CCM, as cannabis has shown great promise in treating many ailments specific to veterans, including PTSD, traumatic brain injuries, insomnia and chronic pain. Retired Army Veteran and Founder of HappyHealing 420 LLC, Sarah Stenuf shared her incredible story about overcoming her symptoms of epilepsy and depression with the help of cannabis. Other speakers included:
Bryan Hill: Charm City Medicus
Reggie Alston: Prime Extracts (formerly 7 Points Agro-Therapeutics)
Jim Elftmann: gLeaf, Director of Cultivation
Dr. Brian S. Kahan: Medical Director at The Kahan Center for Pain Management
Dr. Andrew Rosenstein: Steep Hill Laboratories
Dr. Chanda Macias: Women Grow DMV/ National Holistic Healing Center
Attendees also had the opportunity to tour the inside of our dispensary. At CCM, we strive to ensure our patients are properly educated about their medicine and feel safe and comfortable visiting our dispensary. Healing Our Heroes presented a great opportunity for patients to ask questions pertaining to the Maryland cannabis program and the plant in general.
We look forward to hosting similar events in the near future to ensure the public and our patients are properly educated. Thank you to all those that showed up and braved the cold, and a HUGE thank you to our veterans. We appreciate your service!
