From 2001-2022: 7075 members passed away while in duty.
Since 2001 it’s been reported that more than 114,000 veterans have passed away by suicide. This is an average of 17 veterans lost to suicide every single day.
This does not include attempts.
Aside from the elevated risk of suicide due to mental and emotional health crisis, over 65% of our veterans suffer with chronic pain. They are two times more likely to pass away from an accidental overdose than others.

In a number of studies cannabis, especially CBD, has shown the potential to help veterans relieve symptoms of:
Anxiety, Chronic Pain, PTSD, Mood, etc. and decrease the need for opioids.
CBD and THC are known to work even better together, but THC is to be used with caution, especially in milligrams larger than a microdose.
Cannabis is not a cure all, but it may be a great option for many of our military members.
⏰ 491 is remaining open from 10 am - 6 pm on Memorial Day to support you in what may be nothing to some, but something impactful to many.
We offer a Military Discount year round as a way to make cannabis more accessible and to show you our gratitude.
