The multiple services provided by the non profit model are only part of the culture of social club facility. Another component of this model … is the possible benefit that social support has for one diagnosed with a chronic and/or terminal physical or psychological illness. Beyond the support that medical cannabis patients receive from services is the support received from fellow patients, some of whom are experiencing the same or similar physical/psychological symptoms…. It is possible that the mental health benefits from the social support of fellow patients is an important part of the healing process, separate from the medicinal value of the cannabis itself.
