The Sanctuary, a high-quality medical and recreational cannabis dispensary with two north and downtown Las Vegas locations, is paying homage to U.S. military veterans with an exclusive store discount of 15% off cannabis products, as well as ready-to-light pre-rolls, priced at just a penny each ($12 value) during the entire month of May.
Founded by award-winning emergency and family medicine doctor of over 29 years, Dr. Pejman Bady DO, The Sanctuary places extensive emphasis on providing an alternative approach to healing for those suffering from mental, physical and emotional pain. “Sadly, many of the dispensary’s veteran clients have expressed triggers to their post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms due to the current state of affairs in Ukraine,” says Dr. Bady DO. “We wanted to support our local Las Vegas veterans by offering discounts on medical and recreational vapes, flower, CBD, tinctures and more that can help relieve negative effects during this sensitive time.”
According to the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, it is estimated that 6-10% of the general population and 13-31% of U.S. veterans experience PTSD. Unfortunately, many veterans still experience PTSD symptoms following currently FDA approved treatment. Alternative means like cannabis, thankfully, are finally being analyzed. The first FDA-regulated study on cannabis’s potential benefits for patients suffering from PTSD, released in March 2021, yielded favorable results. “As a medical professional of over 30 years, I’ve witnessed, firsthand, the life-changing benefits that cannabis provides patients suffering from PTSD, anxiety, and other painful ailments,” says Dr. Bady DO.
In addition to the monthlong veterans discount and penny pre-rolls, The Sanctuary dispensary will donate $5,000 of proceeds made during the month of May to the Veterans Care Charity. This local non-profit is committed to improving the lives of our veterans, the true American heroes, through community outreach and advocacy.
Driven by community, The Sanctuary dispensary will also offer a complimentary webinar discussing the therapeutic benefits of cannabis on those suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) hosted by Dr. Bady DO and Dr. Sunil Aggarwal MD, Ph.D., FAAPMR, co-founder and co-director of the AIMS Institute, at 4 pm PST on Wednesday, May 11. Guests can register for the webinar on our website or via the link, thesanctuarynv.com/webinar-registration/.
With valid proof of veteran status, shoppers can take advantage of the exclusive Military Appreciation Month discount from now through May 31 at both of our locations, including North Las Vegas at 2113 Las Vegas Blvd N. North Las Vegas, NV 89030, and the downtown Las Vegas location, 1324 3rd St. Las Vegas, NV 89104.
