Why Are We Doing This?

We, at the NRG Wellness Group, have found that many people, most of who are between the ages of 45 and 75, are using medical cannabis and are unsure about what they are doing, or how to use it, or have little information at all. We organized the conference and workshop with the purpose of increasing the level of knowledge and connect people with local resources.

The knowledge and information you will gain from your participation will help you to improve your own life, as well as the lives of friends and relatives by having the information needed to make better informed choices with respect to medical challenges.

We all deserve to be healthy. We all have the right to choose how this happens. If you are considering medicinal cannabis, now is the time to be well informed.

Becoming a Medicinal Cannabis Patient

In 2010, Mr. Roycroft founded MCRCI, a private organization with licensed physicians that educate and sign in support of qualified patients looking for legal access and guidance for medicinal cannabis. MCRCI soon became the leading cannabis clinic in Canada with a team of doctors who specialize in prescribing cannabis.
