Abby Services Supports seniors who are considering medical marijuana.

In his work with local seniors in Fort Myers and Cape Coral, Scott Strachan RN saw a trend. Many seniors were suffering from pain, anxiety, insomnia, and other afflictions commonly treated with medical marijuana. Through his discussions, he was finding routinely that seniors were curious about the benefits of medical marijuana but were either intimidated about the process and stigma of marijuana as medicine or had tried and failed to use marijuana as medicine.

Abby Services saw this as an educational opportunity and began meeting with seniors to help them through the process of obtaining a medical marijuana card and supporting them through their journey. This was accomplished through free support groups and personal consultations. 

Scott Strachan RN had professional clinical experience with hospice, oncology, and general home care. He saw the many opportunities where medical marijuana would help seniors.

Unfortunately with COVID the in-person medical marijuana consultations and support groups were put on standby. However, Abby Services recommends anyone considering medical marijuana contact Dr. Sonn and his team at The Iona Cannabis Clinic. They have a well-informed staff who are there to help. AARP also has some informative articles on medical marijuana.
