New York Medical Marijuana for Children

A true way to heal - for patients of all ages.

Some people are surprised to learn that medical cannabis is an option for children. For kids with epilepsy, cancer, and other conditions, anecdotal evidence shows support for its benefits. 

At Verilife, we believe that no one should have to suffer when a medication that can help relieve their symptoms exists—least of all children. That’s why we advocate for access for everyone, including kids, and ensure that we bring the real information about its possibilities to help.
