Encore Wellness 4 Life understands the impact and benefits of selective patients using medical marijuana. This responsibility requires education in how THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids interact with your endogenous cannabinoids. In short, many patients use this drug but don’t understand what it does in the body– we will give you a solid foundation so you have a positive outcome long term. Please review the Washington State QUALIFYING CONDITIONS in detail. Our evaluation is objectively assessed and based on state guidelines.

Your records need to show that prescribed medications have not been successful. If you don’t have the documents then we will acquire them for you. Your appointment will not be performed without these documents. If you choose to make Encore your primary care, then you will need an appointment and blood draw panels prior to the medical marijuana process.
