Educational Resources

Overall, medical cannabis shows great promise in helping patients feel better without the sometimes negative impact of traditional medications. In a survey of BPG patients, 85% said medical cannabis had far fewer adverse effects than their prescription medications; they also said that medical cannabis did a better job helping them manage the symptoms associated with their health conditions.

Part of BPG's mission is to foster a deeper understanding of cannabis and our relationship with the plant. It is our belief that by understanding how cannabis works as a medicine, you, along with your BPG Dispensary Specialist, can ultimately choose a more therapeutic treatment for your specific needs. For this reason, we are committed to providing excellent cannabis education to the community.

When requested, we can provide tailored presentations, educational materials  or other resources, and can organize special events for those seeking information about the plant, our operations, or the industry. We have developed such programs for cancer centers, doctors, health teachers, and other private groups.

If you have a question about cannabis, please reach out to us! We are happy to provide any information you may need, and we will use your feedback to develop future resources.
