It’s hard to believe that Elevate Nevada has already been exploring the world of cannabis for a year. When the magazine launched last April nary a grow facility or dispensary was open. The thought of going to a dispensary and being able to buy medicine was just but a twinkle in the eye of many a suffering patient. Now we have a budding industry with more than 15 dispensaries throughout the state providing care and access to Nevada’s approximately 15,000 card-carrying patients as well as any of the medical tourists visiting our state who possess patient cards from their state.

The team at Elevate has spent the last year sharing not only the medical discoveries of cannabis, but also the stories of medicinal cannabis patients who have found comfort and healing using this miracle plant. From epilepsy and breast cancer to PTSD and concussions, our cover stories have run the gamut. But in the nine issues we have already published, we haven’t even begun to explore all the conditions and diseases cannabis can alleviate, heal and bring relief to. We look forward to the myriad topics we have still to cover and appreciate you discovering them along with us as we continue to elevate the conversation surrounding medical cannabis.
