DENVER, April 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — In recognition of the annual 4/20 celebrations, Leaf411™, the premier referral call service for cannabis nurses, and Cannabis Doing Good, which promotes the efforts of Goal-oriented cannabis companies are teaming up to offer consumers Leaf411’s pre-scheduled referral calls completely free from April 17-23. Half-hour orientation sessions, which normally cost $25, can be pre-scheduled by visiting the Leaf411 website.
“Unfortunately, there are still barriers preventing some populations from accessing legal cannabis products, let alone credible cannabis information. For far too many citizens, the cost of cannabis products remains out of reach, primarily affecting low-income and minority populations,” said Katherine Golden, RN and CEO of Leaf411. “There are many reasons to recognize and celebrate 4/20. But the annual holiday should also serve as a call to action for the industry to address remaining social equity challenges.We are very grateful for the generosity of Cannabis Doing Good, which is providing funds to help defray the costs of making this service available to everyone.
Pre-scheduled orientation sessions allow consumers to speak directly with a trained cannabis nurse who can help them make informed decisions about their cannabis purchases and use. Sessions can be scheduled at the consumer’s convenience and provide more detailed and personalized information than available through the Leaf411 hotline, allowing callers to feel comfortable and confident in their cannabis use. The new scheduled orientation sessions were introduced earlier this year as Leaf411 expanded its services to reach more consumers.
“Leaf411 has shown they are dedicated to advancing the cannabis industry in a way that respects racial equity and health equity,” said Kelly Perez, co-CEO of Cannabis Doing Good. “We love the idea that everyone should have access to trusted health information and we’re proud to help them bring this service to consumers on 4/20.”
Pre-scheduled orientation sessions are HIPAA compliant and allow consumers to choose the day and time of their phone or online chat appointment, while also allowing them to select a preferred nurse from the Leaf411 team . Consumers interested in a free orientation session with a cannabis-trained nurse during the week of 4-20 should visit leaf411.org to schedule their session.
“Sales at cannabis dispensaries increase each year on April 20, making it one of the best-selling days of the year for cannabis products, if not the best-selling day for many dispensaries.” , said Golden. “We thought this would be the perfect week to encourage consumers to learn more about different cannabis products, how to consume them safely and effectively, and how these products can fit into their a comprehensive health plan.”
