On April 20, Arizonans can participate in a blood drive at Oasis Cannabis dispensary in Chandler, which is sponsored by Oasis Cannabis, Copia and Ogeez. All participants that are 21 years of age or older will receive a $10 Amazon e-gift card, a free 100mg pack of OGeez gummies, and a 1g Oasis hybrid pre-roll for their generous donation.
Copia/Ogeez is the only medical marijuana company in the nation that has an official partnership with the American Red Cross to support blood donations and host on-site drives. Not only are blood donations in extremely high demand right now, but donating blood is personally important to the companies because, in 2017, the owner of Copia/OGeez – Peggy Noonan – was diagnosed with an aggressive form of leukemia. Since her diagnosis, Copia/OGeez has partnered with numerous companies to host blood drives and raise awareness for Peggy’s condition.
Donating blood usually takes anywhere between 1-2 hours. However, everyone is different so this time will vary and also depends on what type of donation you are giving. People can still donate blood even if they have THC in your system because all donated blood goes through a post-process filtration to ensure the recipient is getting clean platelets or cells.
Time: 9am – 3pm
Location: Oasis Cannabis (17006 S Weber Dr, Chandler)
