We are excited to announce that Vitality Health has teamed up with Green Medicine, Ohio’s leading company for Medical Marijuana treatment. Founded by two emergency medicine clinicians, who saw the need for patients to have better options than addictive medications, the team at Green Medicine is dedicated to helping patients find wellness.
While traditional medicine has cured countless diseases and saved many lives, we are still struggling to adequately help those living with chronic conditions. With the recent legalization of medical marijuana in Ohio, new options now exist. Marijuana has been used for centuries and has been found to be a safe and effective means for dealing with many chronic conditions. With medical marijuana, patients are finally being given the opportunity to take control of their medical treatment in a way that hasn’t been previously available. Unlike pills that must be taken in set amounts at specific times, medical marijuana provides the patient the ability to take what you need, when you need it, and in the route that is best suited for you.
Thank you for choosing Green Medicine at Vitality Health. We look forward to building a lasting relationship and are grateful to have this opportunity. Please take a look below at some commonly asked questions, and give us a call to see if this treatment might be right for you!
