A new non-profit medical marijuana dispensary has opened in Regina and owner Kelly Csada says she plans to donate a chunk of her profits to charity.
“There’s a lot of mental health and different things that I want to give back to so that’s why I decided to go the non-profit way.”
The business venture was a natural choice for Csada.
“I have Crohn’s disease and that’s what brought me here in the first place,” she said.
For years she was on a list of heavy doses of narcotics which she described as a tiresome routine until she started using a simple dose of marijuana oil.
“I have five grand children, I can spend more time with them and do more things with them. I’m not in bed or I’m not in the bathroom 20 times a day anymore.”
It’s a common story documented by numerous medical marijuana patients, many who’ve obtained their own marijuana card which Csada says is the only way people can access medicinal services at her business.
