Cannabis Edibles At No Cost For Coloradans With Physical Disabilities, Thanks To This Partnership

In advance of the upcoming 33rd anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act on July 26th,, the Chanda Center for Health, a local nonprofit organization that delivers and advocates for integrative therapy, primary care, and other complementary services to improve health outcomes and reduce healthcare costs for people with long-term physical disabilities, is partnering with Wana Brands edibles brand and Native Roots, a dispensary retailer with 20 locations across the Front Range, to launch the Cannabis Cares program.

Pioneering modern wellness, the Cannabis Cares program was created to give access to cannabis products for participants of the Chanda Center for Health at no cost. By applying on the online form, participants receive up to $50 worth of Wana products per month at designated Native Roots locations. Chanda Center participants have used cannabis to help manage pain, achieve restful sleep, lower anxiety, and decrease or eliminate the use of prescription medication, including opioids.

“After utilizing the “traditional” medical model, which included no movement and a lot of medication, resulting in poor outcomes and chronic conditions, complementary & integrative treatments like acupuncture, massage, and chiropractic saved my life. Cannabis, like these other alternative treatments, reduces my pain, allows for greater mobility due to reduced spasticity, and better sleep for an improved quality of life, stated Chanda Hinton, executive director, Chanda Center for Health. “Creating access to proactive healthcare options was one of the primary motivations for founding the Chanda Center for Health. We are grateful to Native Roots and Wana for making the Cannabis Cares program possible, and we are eager for our participants to have access to high-quality products and a personalized customer experience.”
