LivWell Cares Helps Thousands of Cannabis Patients in Need this Holiday Season
Date:1/3/2017

LivWell Cares, the philanthropic arm of LivWell Enlightened Health, announced today that it had given away almost $800,000 worth of high cannabidiol (CBD) cannabis over the holiday season to members of two patient advocacy groups: American Medical Refugees and the CannAbility Foundation. Charging the nominal price of one penny per ounce, LivWell Cares provided almost 8,000 individual ounces of high quality cannabis to thousands of patients in need over the course of two weeks through each of LivWell Enlightened Health’s recreational locations in Colorado. After running a similar promotion for our veterans during Memorial Day earlier this year, LivWell Enlightened Health has effectively donated over $1.6 million in cannabis to veterans and patients during 2016.

"This promotion was one of the best gifts our members could have asked for," said Stacey Linn, Executive Director of CannAbility Foundation. "By offering these penny ounces, LivWell Enlightened Health has helped our network of thousands of patients gain access to the medicine they need for themselves and their loved ones."

"Many of our members have traveled so far in order to access cannabis medicine," said Amy Dawn Bourlon-Hilterbran, founder of American Medical Refugees. "LivWell Enlightened Health’s generous offering of penny ounces has made all the difference to families across Colorado this holiday season."

The two patient advocacy groups represent a network of thousands of medical marijuana patients in Colorado, from locals struggling to afford the medicine they need to those who moved to Colorado in order to access cannabis products to treat themselves or their loved ones.

“It is part of our company’s DNA to give back to our communities,” said John Lord, owner and CEO of LivWell Enlightened Health. “Getting this medicine into the hands of patients who truly need it reminds us all of both the incredible medicinal power of cannabis and the importance of giving, especially at this time of year.”

This promotion marks the second time this year that LivWell Cares has sponsored a promotion to give away ounces of cannabis that are high in CBD, one of many non-psychoactive cannabinoids that have been shown to be useful for a number of medicinal purposes. Earlier this year LivWell Cares sponsored a promotion which gave away more than 8,000 high CBD ounces to Colorado veterans, resulting in more than $800,000 of product being sold for the nominal price of one penny. Colorado state law prohibits cannabis companies from giving medicated product away for free.
