Medical Marijuana Event
NEHA was excited to offer an educational event that included a private tour of Insa Easthampton: a cannabis (marijuana) cultivator, manufacturer and dispensary and an educational presentation by Jennifer Sacco, PharmD.
The speaker addressed the benefits of medical marijuana to manage pain and reduce inflammation and reviewed different consumption methods that are currently available. They discussed terpenoids, cannabinoids, delivery methods, and potential drug interactions. Mark Zaytrka, a NEHA community member, Blood Brotherhood Coordinator, and co-owner/CEO of Insa, lead our tour of the facility, along with the heads of the cultivation and lab departments.
This event was open to any adult (ages 21+) with any type of bleeding disorder and their family members living in any of the six New England states. There was no cost for all 2019 NEHA members. There will be no consumption at the event.
