This was a really great episode getting to know Elev8 Veterans with Theresa and Junior.
Here is the info from the Elev8 Veterans site and what they are looking to do.
Our mission is a simple one, we are focused on assisting veterans who are using alternatives as a solution for pain management, PTSD and any other ailments or conditions. We want to improve veteran lives. Veterans deserve full legal access. Through Elev8, our team of veterans, counselors, and staff is dedicated to providing you top quality products. We want to be in a position to give away vaporizers to war veterans that are seeking cannabis as a healthier medication method. That’s right free stuff!
Purpose and Background:
Help us change the conversation about the transformative, life-saving health treatment value of medical cannabis. This health issue and the use of medical cannabis to resolve these issues is long overdue!
Many alternative healing styles are a proven, safe and common-sense approach to personal health management. It also provides a healthy option to the nightmare that is opiate-based drugs.
The US military conflicts over the past 17 years have revealed an overwhelmed ineffective health care system, ill-prepared for the type and severity of the war-related injuries we are seeing today. Almost 20 percent of the 2 million+ Iraq and Afghanistan veterans will experience post-traumatic stress or depression, according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The VA is not properly equipped or trained to treat the complexity of every veteran’s mental and physical wounds, leaving former service members to cope with limited and inadequate treatment options. Veterans are normally forced into using harmful and addictive prescription drugs, including powerful and addictive opiates. This is not productive for our veterans
