United Patients Group is thrilled that senior communities look to us for the best hands-on care, guidance, and information to navigate through this industry of so many questions.

With more and more seniors turning to UnitedPatientsGroup.com (formerly Doobons.com) for answers about medical cannabis, United Patients Group founder John Malanca recently gave a presentation at a Bay Area retirement community to clear up any misconceptions seniors might have about cannabis.

“We at UnitedPatientsGroup.com feel that it’s important to explain medical cannabis in a way that patients can understand, no matter what their age or situation,” said John. “Additionally, UPG believes that speaking with seniors at retirement communities helps us better comprehend the concerns of this age group.”

After the presentation, UPG founder fielded questions from the audience, including many that United Patients Group is commonly asked:

  •     Is medical cannabis legal?
  •     How can it help me?
  •     What are the psychological effects of medical marijuana?
  •     What can I expect from cannabis treatment?
  •     Is all cannabis the same and do all types of cannabis have the same reactions?
  •     What is a medical marijuana card and how do I get one?
  •     Can I get a card/recommendation through my primary physician?
  •     Does my insurance cover this?
  •     Are there any senior discounts to be had?
  •     Is it addictive?
  •     Do I have to smoke to receive the benefits?
  •     What is a dose? Is a dose/serving the same with every company and product?
  •     How important is testing?
  •     Where can I get it? Or I’m disabled, how do I get it?

“These are just a few of the many questions United Patients Group receives on a daily basis,” said John. “With that said, United Patients Group is thrilled that senior communities look to us for the best hands-on care, guidance, and information to navigate through this industry of so many questions.”

“I was thrilled to find out that I could use cannabis for my arthritis and appetite issues without smoking,” said Evelyn (a Santa Rosa, CA senior).
