Get FREE Ganja and Education About High-Quality Cannabis and Medicine
Here’s the best news you’ve probably heard this year, hands down: a local NE Sandy dispensary is giving away FREE WEED. Well, it’s great news for you, if you have a local discounted Oregon Medical Marijuana Program card. At Panacea, they believe in the healing powers of medical marijuana and want to share the love!
How are they able to do it? After partnering with an all-natural cannabis provider, Bull Run Craft Cannabis, the dynamic duo has been able to provide a free eighth of their best stuff – again, at no charge – to those with a discounted Oregon Medical Marijuana Program card. This includes veterans, those qualified for SSI, and beyond.
Who Can Get the Free Ganja?
This brings us to our next bit of helpful information: who qualifies? Surely, not everyone can gain green that easily. The partnership’s goal is to raise awareness about how medical marijuana can change lives for the better, highlighting its benefits for patients who:
- suffer from the painful symptoms of cancer,
- have a condition known as glaucoma,
- possess a degenerative or pervasive neurological condition,
- have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD),
- are HIV/AIDS positive, or
- have a medical condition that produces one or more of the following symptoms: Cachexia (wasting syndrome)
- severe pain
- severe nausea
- seizures, including but not limited to seizures caused by epilepsy
- persistent muscle spasms, including but not limited to those caused by multiple sclerosis.
This guide is based on of the list of qualifying conditions and guidelines, directly from the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act. Feel free to refer to it, if you need more information on the best ways to find your natural way to pain relief.
They’re Working to Accomplish a Mission
Right on the homepage of Panacea’s site, they state that their biggest goal is to reduce suffering, through the use of cannabis. They even call themselves a cure-all medical cannabis dispensary (which is pretty awesome). They’re not just on the market to make money; they’re here to change lives in the best way possible. In fact, all of their profits go straight to social justice opportunities. Can it get any better than that?
Actually, yes! As mentioned above, Panacea is keeping their eyes on the prize: a healthier, stronger, and happier world. That’s why they also offer “Budtender” sessions, to further educate patients on the benefits of medical marijuana, hosted by their very own Clinical Herbalist.
Rebecca White, R.N., B.S.N., Clinical Herbalist at Panacea, has over a decade of nursing experience under her belt. Even better than that, she’s personally experienced the positive effects of medical marijuana, using medical cannabis during various stages of her own cancer treatment. As iconic Oprah Winfrey stated recently, during her Golden Globe speech, “What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have.” Rebecca White is able to help patients with similar, and maybe even worse conditions, recover and improve their overall quality of life, through these Budtender sessions.
Get Your Green and Get Schooled at the Same Time
Budtender sessions are informal conversations that cover a variety of topics around marijuana, as well as the way it interacts with our bodies. Although these sessions are geared toward industry professionals, anyone and everyone willing to learn more about the magic of cannabis is welcome to join for FREE.
Rebecca is in the shop every first Wednesday of the month, from 1-6 pm, and she is available by appointment all other Wednesdays of the month. If you’d like to make an appointment or get some information on cannabis from Rebecca, you can Email Her Here. In the meantime, here are a few upcoming Budtender sessions that you won’t want to miss out on:
