We are passionate about the health benefits of medical marijuana

A Strong Partner

Our Organic Remedies team strongly believes in the health benefits of medical marijuana. We are passionate about bringing the healing properties of the plant to qualified patients in our communities.

As a Pennsylvania state-approved clinical registrant, Organic Remedies has signed a long-term research agreement with Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine to study the therapeutic applications of medical marijuana.

This partnership is part of the Pennsylania’s first-in-the-nation research program for medical marijuana and is expected to broadly advance the knowledge base of medical cannabis and its therapeutic properties.

Organic Remedies is devoting significant resources to research and development with the goal of creating unique strains of medical marijuana with distinct cannabinoid profiles and precise formulations to treat adverse health conditions nationwide and globally.

Organic Remedies’ medical advisory team consisting of physicians, scientists, pharmacists, and researchers are guiding these research efforts which will be of great benefit to our patients in Missouri.

The Organic Remedies team is looking forward to the potential opportunities to improve patient outcomes through ground-breaking clinical research studies in the medical marijuana industry.

Initial research studies will focus on:

  • Chronic pain
  • Opioid management
  • Impact on behavioral health and quality of life
  • Trends in usage

Pennsylvania’s medical marijuana program continues to be a leader for the country as we conduct comprehensive research through this program. The work already being done by these partners is providing physicians with more evidence-based research to make clinical decisions for their patients. This is the cornerstone of our program and the key to our clinically-based, patient-focused program for those suffering with cancer, PTSD and other serious medical conditions.

Pennsylvania remains at the forefront of clinical research on medical marijuana. We, at PCOM, in partnership with a best-in-class clinical registrant partner, Organic Remedies, will collaborate with other academic clinical research centers to increase the pace of discovery. Only through research will we more fully understand medical marijuana’s therapeutic applications and improve patients’ lives.
