Lupus is a chronic inflammatory disease that occurs when the body’s immune system attacks its own tissues and organs. As a consequence, many lupus patients suffer from severe inflammation and chronic pain. Recent studies demonstrate the efficacy of using medical marijuana as a treatment for lupus.
Capital City Care works with many lupus patients on their journey to a better health, and our staff witnesses firsthand the therapeutic benefits medical marijuana brings to them. Cannabis is effective in treating the nausea, chronic pain, and severe inflammation experienced by lupus patients.
As the District’s premiere dispensary, and the only one permitted to cultivate its own medical marijuana, it is our mission to provide superior cannabis products and consultation to our patients. Our hard effort has paid off — Capital City Care is ranked among the nation’s best medical marijuana dispensaries by High Times Magazine and Cannabis Now Magazine, won Best of DC, and was named among the top eleven most stylish dispensaries in the country by MerryJane.com.
In order to raise awareness of medical marijuana’s usefulness in the treatment of lupus, Capital City Care will be participating in the 2017 Walk to Cure Lupus on Saturday, October 21st on the National Mall. Patients who participate in the race with our team will be awarded 1,000 PSC rewards points. Patients who make a monetary contribution will earn double PSC rewards point for every dollar they donate.
