Holistic Pain Management Institute (HPMI) to have booth set up for interested patients wanting to know about latest research on benefits of medical cannabis.

As the only medical marijuana collective participating in this year’s Music in the Park Series, HPMI is a proud sponsor of Chicago native singer, songwriter and keyboard artist, Tchiya Amet, whose ethno-native celestial-inspired music is sure to transform the crowd.

The concerts are held downtown at Plaza de Cesar Chavez, Thursdays at 5:30 p.m. from now until Aug. 26. Amet will perform June 16.

"As a healer I always give praises to other healers in the community whom are doing great work and have a community focus- to that end, HPMI is ‘the Jewel’ in San Jose,” said Craig Bright, co-sponsor representing the Humane Renaissance Movement, a grass-roots community organization focused on spirituality through sports, recreation, and music. He went on to say that that HPMI “offers a full service clinic with compassion for their members.”

HPMI is the oldest collective in San Jose.

“This summer is going to be spectacular,” said Van Hovey, founder of HPMI. “We expect more folks this year than last.” In 2010 HPMI worked with the Bright and the Stanford Blood Center and made news when it became the largest drive the center has ever had, signing up 300 donors at their booth. Despite the large donor turnout, this year Stanford declined to participate.

“We were disappointed that we are unable to help out with blood donations,” Hovey said. “HPMI is all about giving back to the community. We work with hospice and homeless charities where we can offer our best compassion power to those in real need.”

While the city works out details on limitations of collectives and co-ops, HPMI is pleased that new THC-based prescriptions offered in the U.S. and Europe are shedding light on this industry’s legitimate place in the medical market. It is well established in the medical community that medications like Sativex©, Cesamet©, and Marinol©, have shown that cannabis helps with MS spasticity, inflammation, and nausea.

“We continue to support the rights of legitimate businesses providing patients with legitimate medication,” Hovey emphasized. “Stop by our booth to find out the latest on medical marijuana.”
