Vireo Health / 1937 Cannabis
NCW is proud to partner with Vireo Health / 1937 Cannabis in a joint effort to provide safe access and educate our community about the wonders of this medicine. NCW and Vireo share passion when it comes to cannabis education, fighting the opioid crisis, ending the stigma and taking care of our troops. Vireo is outspoken in the field. You will find them at events promoting cannabis and advocating for patient rights. Vireo was at cannabis lobby day in Annapolis in support of our movement and the betterment of the program. Vireo is continually researching the science behind cannabis to create products that may help with symptoms resulting from opioid withdrawal. Vireo has done research with veterans to unearth and understand conditions common amongst veterans post service. Vireo also provides human resources for veterans looking for help understanding cannabis.
Vireo Health is a physician-led, patient-focused medical cannabis grower-processor dedicated to providing patients with best-in-class products and high quality care.
Dr. Paloma Lehfeldt serves as the Director of Medical Education for Vireo Health. Dr. Lehfeldt brings to Vireo more than ten years of experience in psychiatric research, community outreach, and teaching. She has expertise in neuroscience with a keen interest in pain management/analgesia in the endocannabinoid system. Her interest in cannabis as medicine is a direct result of working with patients and research participants unable to control chronic pain and their subsequent opioid dependence.
At Vireo, Dr. Lehfeldt is the direct line of communication with providers and physicians and organizes outreach events, conferences and lectures for both providers and patients. She is passionate about the use of cannabis as medicine, and looks forward to advocating it’s healing properties throughout her career.
