Medical cannabis has changed my life by giving me safe and affordable access to quality products that improve my symptoms. I don't worry about availability because the dispensaries have ample amounts of various products to choose from.

Why It Matters
Columbia Care patients and customers experience the power of the plant.
Daniel, Patient
"I have a serious back injury and have undergone multiple surgeries. This all causes me chronic, terrible pain every day. Since I started using medical marijuana, I am able to sleep at night and I have noticeable relief from the muscle spasms and the pain itself. The staff has been patient and kind as I continue to search for the combination of products that treat my symptoms most effectively, including the chronic anxiety that comes with the uncertainty of a future living every day with severe pain. I would suffer greatly if not for the help of cannabis and the staff. I remain able to work full time, walk my dog, and other basic life activities that those with healthy bodies take for granted. I am very grateful for the measure of relief that medical cannabis has given me."
Patrick, Veteran & Patient
“There’s still a negative attitude and stigma towards cannabis, especially for military personnel who are afraid that Veterans Affairs will take away their pension. But after my accident, when I was in so much pain and unwilling to get hooked on opiates, I knew I wanted to investigate this as an option. Today, cannabis helps me out so much.”
Our Staff Weigh In
It's why we do what we do.
Sheri, Virginia
“My interest in the industry stems from offering relief to patients that was not available to me and my family. I want to destroy the societal image of all cannabis users as ‘stoners’ and normalize cannabis consumption in the same manner as people taking Tylenol for a headache. It all starts with education. My driving force is knowing that the actions of myself and my team have a direct effect on improving someone else’s life. Every day we make the decision to do better, to be better. It is an honor knowing that the quality of our work eases someone else’s pain.”
Jason, Utah
“This plant has helped me for years after the military. It feels good to help patients and let them see they do not need the harsh over-the-counter drugs to combat pain and feel okay.”
Sarah, Arizona
“Growing plants has been a passion of mine most of my life. Whether it be gardening, landscaping, or cannabis cultivation. I've been in the cannabis industry since day one where I started as a caregiver for my mother. My love of plants fueled my interest in a new career path and I began taking horticulture classes. It was an internship at a local community supported agriculture (CSA) program that led me to an opportunity to where I am today.”
