Our Cannabis Culture
MEND, or Medicinal Excellence for Neurologic Disorders, was created to challenge and change the way cannabis is regarded in the medical world and beyond. MEND is working towards creating a medical brand cannabis standard, in order to treat the often debilitating symptoms of neurologic conditions. By fusing the freedom of Colorado’s dispensaries and policies, with the medical expertise of physicians passionate about the use of medical cannabis, MEND offers a researched solution to ensure a patient is receiving the best practice standards and quality of products through the most effective mediums. We believe that medical cannabis has the ability to vastly improve patients’ lives and acknowledge that more quality research is imperative to its success.
“Wherever the art of medicine is loved, there is also a love of humanity”
