I love how this internship, and by extension Vireo, genuinely encourages inclusivity in its studies and efforts regarding cannabis.
Stephen suffered a bad second-degree burn and was dealing with painful nerve damage as a result. He tried a variety of more traditional pharmaceutical options before turning to medical cannabis.
Stephen became a Vireo patient after learning more about our company and how it had been founded by physicians and remained science- and patient-focused to this day. “What’s great about the medical marijuana program is that you’ve got actual scientists and pharmacists in charge of the products and therefore you know that you’re getting the real thing,” he said.
I am warmed by the fact that patients look to us for professional advice. It makes me happy when a patient leaves us a five-star review for the professionalism and quality our team provides.
I want to give a huge shout out to our dedicated essential workers – the pharmacists and patient care coordinators – for their hard work to provide stellar patient care services during COVID while putting their own safety and health at risk.
I have always had a passion and belief in cannabis — both its massive potential in business and its amazing healing properties in its many forms.
Working at Vireo is extra special because we get to help people that didn’t think there was any way for them to help improve their quality of life.
I love that the Vireo staff is all about making top quality, safe medicine for our patients. I love taking care of our plants and patients.
I am proud to be part of an organization that is an “essential service”, but is taking extraordinary steps to protect and support everyone in its circle of care— this includes not only our patients, but also our team members and their families, as well as the local community we serve.
Overtime, he found that Vireo Red was the product that worked best for his symptoms. Vireo Red is a THC dominant formulation that gave Michael energy without the aftereffects of drowsiness. Since Michael started using medical cannabis to alleviate his pain and take back his livelihood, he has been able stop taking both opiates and psychotropics and has lost more than 40 pounds.
I ended up at Vireo because I wanted to be an integral part of this medical transformation taking over the world for the betterment of our society
Roughly one in 10 veterans in the United States live with severe, chronic pain and I happen to be one of them. In the 14 years that I’ve lived with this issue, I have spent hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars trying different treatments. Medical cannabis is one of the most effective treatments I found for veterans suffering with chronic pain or other conditions PTSD.
He still has Autism and Tourette’s Syndrome, but with medical cannabis and people around him who love and care for him, he is developing into a wonderful young man who is learning to navigate the world and become the best version on himself.
When I returned home, I was diagnosed with PTSD. At the time, there was a major stigma against PTSD, both inside the Armed Forces and in the general public. I couldn’t tell anyone and I didn’t want anyone to know. When you’re apart of such an elite group of fighters that take so much pride in what they do and how professional they act the last thing you’re allowed to do is be weak.
After only few months of treatment at Vireo Health, I am able to get out of the house, take a walk on my own and sleep through the night. It may not seem like all that much to most people, but to me, these simple things… mean the world. After being diagnosed… with Transverse Myelitis four years ago, I was convinced that my daily routine would never be “normal” again.
Over the past few months, I have taken time to reflect on my life – or what I like to refer to as my past life and my new beginning. In between the many precious moments and cherished memories, I often find myself wondering… where would I be without my medical marijuana?
