A company that says it provides medical marijuana and services to people dealing with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and chronic pain is opening a wellness centre in Edmonton.
Marijuana for Trauma, a Canadian veteran-owned and operated company, will hold the grand opening of its new Edmonton centre Saturday.
The company said it’s not a dispensary, rather a support system for safe and responsible patient access to medically prescribed cannabis treatment. Clients have prescriptions for medical marijuana from a licensed medical professional and are approved users of the drug, according to Marijuana for Trauma.
The company also said it offers specialized support programs, peer networks and wellness programs for military and retired police officers and other first responders.
The Edmonton facility will be Marijuana for Trauma’s 12th centre in Canada.
