TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR WELLNESS

It is important to understand that cannabis medicine is highly individualized.

It takes time, persistence, active participation, and a little experimentation to find the right concentration and delivery system that works for you.

But luckily, this gives you the opportunity to take control of your medicine and decide what works best for your needs!

The education services at Verdes are here to reduce your learning curve and save you money as you learn.

Our goal is to educate and empower YOU so that YOU understand how to adequately and safely use this medicine.

Our Educators

Our Customer Service Representatives (CSRs) are here to help you achieve the best possible outcomes with the least amount of cost.

Our CSRs are each trained by a registered nurse to help clients find cost effective products that manage symptoms safely and effectively.

What Verdes Cannabis Educators CAN do:

  • Teach YOU how to effectively manage YOUR cannabis medicine
  • Provide ongoing support and guidance on cannabis products, delivery systems, & onset times
  • Teach you about the cannabis plant and its impact on the body and typical* symptom relief

* It is important to understand that cannabis is highly individualized. It takes time, persistence, active participation, and a little experimentation to find the right concentration and delivery system that works for you.

What Verdes Cannabis Educators CANNOT do:

  • “Prescribe” in any manner
  • Make changes to your current pharmaceuticals
  • Provide guidance to non-medical cannabis card holders
  • Offer guidance on how to “cure” your condition
  • Applications or renewals for medical cannabis cards
  • Act as a physician

Always share any concerns you have about medical cannabis with your prescribing doctor or primary care doctor.  These concerns can include any medications you are taking that may interact negatively with cannabis or how-to best time your cannabis consumption around other medications.


Cannabis 101 Classes

Attend our Cannabis 101 to get an in-depth overview of the properties of the plant and how those properties interact with your body. The class covers delivery systems (such as edibles vs. smoking), onset times (how long it takes to feel the effects of cannabis) and our endocannabinoid system (why we can feel the effects of cannabis).

In preparation for the class, please consider the following:

  • Space is limited. Slots are reserved for medical cannabis card holders only and their caregivers
  • No-call, no-shows will not be allowed to sign up for another class except for an extenuating circumstance
