Veterans Medical Marijuana Educational Event (MD) February 22 2018
Bloom Medicinals is honored to host a Free Veterans Event, to discuss the efficacy of medical cannabis in treating PTSD and chronic conditions with an expert panel and fellow veterans who have been effectively treated by medical cannabis. Caregivers, family members, and patients suffering from these conditions are also welcomed, as there will be helpful information everyone at this event.
Experts will present information on the use and effectiveness of cannabis in treating PTSD and chronic conditions. Veterans will be able to share their experiences, ask questions and connect with other veterans who have gone or are going through the same struggles.
There are about 22 million veterans in the US and 2.8 million veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan wars. The PTSD rate in this group is about 15% to 20%. That’s almost 3 million people suffering through PTSD. Even worse, only about half seek treatment.
We hope to reach out and give a hand to the veteran community by providing information on how medical cannabis can help. Anyone suffering from PTSD and chronic illnesses is welcomed to join, as these conditions affect more than just the veteran community.
