Employers & Concerns
We offer employer and professional consultations to address questions and concerns that employers may have regarding their employees taking medicinal cannabis. These consultations also allow for the answering of complex clinical questions for anyone other than the client themselves. The use of medicinal cannabis by employees can raise various issues and questions that employers may not have the expertise to handle. Additionally, there may be clinical questions that require the input of a medical professional, which can be addressed through these consultations. By offering these consultations, we can provide guidance and support to employers and professionals to ensure that they have the information and resources necessary to make informed decisions and provide the best care possible for their employees and clients.
