MARANA, AZ — Arizona’s newest medical marijuana dispensary, Nature Med, located just North of Tuscon in Marana, will be welcoming new patients with an open house Saturday, July 20, from 10 am until 5 pm.
The event is open to all current Arizona medical marijuana card holders, as well as non-patients who are interested in learning how to obtain medical marijuana certification. Snacks and refreshments will be provided, and staff will be on hand to answer any questions from current and future medical marijuana patients.
Located less than a mile west of Interstate 10, Nature Med is a non-profit, state licensed medical marijuana dispensary operated by a father and son team with a medical background.
“My father is a registered nurse, and has been in the healthcare field for over 30 years,” says dispensary general manager Jacob Schmidt. “He has seen great suffering and pain in patients who are most often prescribed pharmaceutical pain medication. While these may work for many people, others find the negative benefits of these opiates to outweigh the positive.”
“We believe in a natural approach to physical and mental relief,” Schmidt added. ”The cannabis plant is a great alternative for treating the body and mind for a variety of ailments, naturally.”
The dispensary, which opened last week, is already receiving high reviews from patients who praise the knowledge of the friendly staff, as well as the security and comfort of the dispensary itself.
“We believe in the medicine, and we want patients to have access to high quality product in a safe and professional environment,” Schmidt says.
In addition to their current supply of several indica, sativa and hybrid strains, the dispensary says edibles and essential oils will be available soon, and plans an on-site cultivation center.
Nature Med has teamed with the Arizona Medical Marijuana Certification Center (AZMMCC), and will have a doctor available for new patients and renewals every Thursday afternoon, but appointments are recommended.
Patients who are unable to come to the open house are invited to stop in anytime and receive a free gram with any cannabis purchase of an eighth or more.
Nature Med is located just off of exit 248 from Interstate 10 at 5390 West Ina Road, and is open daily from 10 am until 5 pm.
