Participate In A Cannabis Study Through the University of Michigan!

Om of Medicine is partnering with the University of Michigan for our 2nd, IRB approved, research study and we need your insight! This new study will help uncover how cannabis is related to pain management, quality of life, and the use of other medications. The information you provide will help inform physicians, researchers, policy-makers, and patients about potential benefits and risks of cannabis as a therapeutic or recreational agent. You are eligible to participate in this study if you qualify for all three of the following: 1) You are 18 years of age or older. 2) You have either been using cannabis for chronic pain management for less than 6 months OR you plan to but have not started using cannabis for chronic pain management. 3) You have a medical cannabis certification in your state of residence. If you are interested in participating, please contact: Kevin Boehnke at kboehnke@med.umich.edu. To view the results from our 1st, IRB approved study with U of M, click here!

Food Gatherers Kitchen Volunteers

Since our members have been so charitable with our ongoing food drive, we are currently looking for volunteers to help with the Food Gatherer’s Community Kitchen on W. Huron Street. Volunteering will take place during the first week of each month, and shifts are 2-3 hours each. If you are interested in volunteering, stop in and sign up today so that we can continue fighting hunger in Washtenaw County.  

Food Drive Update

Exciting news: If we raise 50,ooo pounds of food this year, we will have helped raise over 100,000 pounds of food! This year alone, we have already collected 20,000 pounds of food; and last year, we were able to collect over 33,000 pounds of food. We are so grateful to those who contributed! Our goal for 2016 is to raise 50,000 pounds of food – that’s 20,000 pounds more than our goal for 2015! Food Gatherers accepts both cash donations and food donations (dry, non-perishables, or canned foods), and you may contribute in either form right here at Om of Medicine. Help us reach our goal for this year and show Washtenaw county what we’re made of! Your support helps keep hungry stomachs full.  

Veterans Alliance

Please consider bringing in brand-new hygiene products, such as toothbrushes, razors, soap, etc. or a dollar or two to donate to this wonderful organization. It is simply not right that Veterans have to jump thru so many difficult hoops in order to obtain the benefits they deserve.

Past Involvement

Om of Medicine is a non-profit organization that prides itself on giving back to the community. Not only are we dedicated to assisting registered medical marijuana patients and caregivers in obtaining medication in a safe and professional environment, but we also involve ourselves in a number of charitable endeavors. The positive impact of charities is considerable, and together we can make a difference. The following are examples of how we have reached out to the community.
