Established in 2018, Leaf for Life’s mission is to help educate veterans and families on medical cannabis alternatives. The organization develops programs and events that are inclusively designed for veterans and their family members.
Leaf for Life co-founders Danielle Sedgwick and Laura Franklin both have family members who are American military veterans and suffer from PTSD. Their shared experiences served as an impetus to start a larger support network for those in need.
“We are both cannabis industry professionals and have witnessed firsthand how holistic medical cannabis treatments can help. We started Leaf for Life to provide support for the entire family, because it’s not just veterans who are experiencing the residual side-effects of the war at home,” stated Sedgwick.
Through its programs, Leaf for Life is dedicated to destigmatizing the myths surrounding the cannabis plant, while offering a safe discussion forum for healthcare matters affecting veterans.
