Canada House Clinics, formerly known as Marijuana For Trauma, was founded in 2013 by Canadian Forces veterans Fabian Henry and Mike Southwell.
Since its inception, the organization has focused on alternative treatment options for Canadians and veterans.
That mission is now expanding as the company has announced it has acquired Margaree Health Group Inc., a medical cannabis clinic that serves more than 350 veterans across Nova Scotia.
CHC has largely focused on treating post-combat conditions with cannabis, such as post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD) and chronic pain, as well as offering clinical support and educational resources.
Veterans Affairs Canada estimates that up to 10 per cent of war zone veterans — including war-service veterans and peacekeeping forces — will experience PTSD.
Margaree also focuses on education, as well as helping veterans acquire medical cannabis documents and establishing treatment plans. It was created by the leadership team at True North Psychological Services, which operates four clinics across the province.
