Americans have faced obvious mental health struggles during the pandemic. We are here to take proactive measures that help prioritize your mental well being. With social distancing and isolation, the topic of prioritizing mental health during this time should be a top priority. More than 40 million American adults struggle with mental health yearly. For some, medical marijuana in Colorado and other forms of cannabis maybe the answer. From terpenes like limonene and cannabinoids like THC and CBD, cannabis can support mental comfort during these challenging times.
We’re committed to providing the Denver community with the necessary Medical Marijuana they need to get through this pandemic period and in providing as many resources as possible to benefit our friends in the Denver area.
Here are a few resources you or a loved one may find helpful that support mental health:
Calm is an app that provides a handful of free meditations and guided exercises that can help you unwind during these stressful times.

Happify utilizes scientific approaches to improving mental health to help you overcome the stress, challenges, and negative thought processes you may have.
