Harvest of Tempe medical marijuana dispensary, located at 710 W. Elliot Rd., will host their annual Patient Appreciation Day on Saturday, December 3rd from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM, as a way of giving back to Arizona’s community of medical cannabis patients. The event will provide sales and product specials, free giveaways from local vendors, raffles, food, and on-site medical marijuana card certification to those in attendance.
As part of their continued effort towards education, Harvest will also hold a lecture on traditional and alternative treatments for insomnia, delivered by Dr. Joyce Lee-Iannotti, MD and Harvest’s Medical Director, Dr. William Troutt, NMD. Dr. Lee-Iannotti, a triple board certified neurologist and assistant professor of neurology, specializes in stroke neurology and sleep medicine and will discuss traditional treatments for insomnia. Dr. Troutt will complement her discussion with an explanation of cannabis use for insomnia.
Although not a qualifying condition in Arizona, a study conducted by Dr. Troutt and published in the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs showed that 39.5% of the Arizona medical cannabis patients surveyed had used cannabis to combat insomnia, and 82.7% of those patients experienced nearly complete relief from the condition. “While insomnia won’t qualify someone for a medical cannabis card, this research demonstrates medical cannabis’ positive effects on the ability to maintain healthy sleeping habits,” said Dr. Troutt.
All are welcome to attend the event, even those without a medical cannabis patient card. “Dr. Lee-Iannotti and I are happy to welcome anybody who’s been struggling with insomnia and is interested in conventional and alternative therapies.”
Harvest dispensaries provide a safe, clean, comfortable, respectful, and compassionate environment for patients looking to obtain medical cannabis. More information on Patient Appreciation Day can be found at www.harvestofaz.com/PAD
