Starting July 1st, the Vermont Cannabis Nurses Association (VTCNA) will be launching a new program offering free cannabis clones to anyone currently being prescribed opioid medications.
A statewide group inspired by the nationally-based American Cannabis Nurses Association, VTCNA will be working with support from Homegrown Consulting and other several local cultivators, all of whom will be producing the herb using organic methods. Homegrown Consulting has also recently announced a similar program. When someone purchases a consulting package which includes gifted seeds, a veteran will also be gifted free seeds.
Anyone who is currently being prescribed an opioid medication would qualify for the program, and could choose a couple of clones from a wide variety of available strains. “We have high-quality genetics in everything from pure Sativa, to great hybrids, 1:1, and Indica dominant to help with sleep, and so on,” said Jessilyn. And while some folks may already know which strains work well for them, VTCNA will also help people who are new to the cannabis world pick the appropriate plants based on what health issues they are facing.
