The country has been transforming and evolving towards offering citizens more options for medicine.

For thousands of years, countless cultures have used marijuana for medical and wellness purposes. Even Queen Victoria used cannabis to control her cramps and assist with labor pain. If you have been following the latest research news, you have probably heard of the strains “Hailey's Hope” & “Charlotte's Web”.

It is non-psychoactive and research has shown it to have an increasingly large list of medical benefits.
