A local mother from Red Pheasant Cree Nation is among those who appreciate seeing a new cannabis retail outlet now available on the First Nation.
Red Flower Medicinal Cannabis Dispensary held its grand opening celebration Wednesday.
Lorena Gardipy said having a cannabis facility right on Red Pheasant will help her adult son who requires medicinal cannabis products for his health issues.
She said her son suffers from a rare seizure disorder due to a medical condition. Gardipy said since he has been using Cannabidiol (CBD) oil it has helped reduce his seizures.
