Patience, positivity and proof has paid off. We are thrilled about our new partnership between Hope Grows for Autism and pediatric physician Dr. Lewis Jassey of Leafwell.
Medical marijuana (otherwise known as cannabinoid medicine) could literally be called a “pharmacy in a plant,” says Leafwell and we could not agree more!
With up to 150 cannabinoids, over 200 terpenes and 20 discovered flavonoids so far, many of which are used together (aka the entourage effect) help treat a variety of conditions and symptoms, such as chronic pain, improvement of mood, reduction of anxiety as well as inflammation.
Dr. Jassey has practiced pediatric medicine for 26 years and sculpted his devotion to autistic patients. Not only is he a successful pediatric physician, he is also the Medical Director of Leafwell.
Leafwell helps eliminate stressors that parents/caregivers already experience because of its ability to provide people with quick access to see a physician or consult on-line.
Leafwell’s entire team is dedicated to any and all research pertaining to cannabinoid medicine. They are welcoming and encourage people to share their stories.
If you live in the following states: Arkansas; California; Connecticut; Florida – renewal only; Illinois; Maine; Maryland; Massachusetts; Marland; Missouri; Montana; New York; Ohio; Oklahoma; Pennsylvania; Rhode Island;or Virginia; visit leafwell.co to obtain your medical marijuana card and/or obtain a physician certification/recommendation.
The autism community lacks support from most pediatric physicians. And it is our duty as parents/caregivers to combine forces and educate the uneducated.
The fact is, healthcare providers are finally seeing that cannabinoid medicine actually improves the quality of life by huge percentages.
