As part of our mission to serve the community, and educate patients Bud and Bloom offers several community outreach programs.
Individual Patient Consultations
Bud and Bloom’s Individual Patient Consultations are an opportunity to get educated on a one-on-one basis by a medical cannabis specialist. They will guide you on what product(s), dosing and route of administration might be right for you.
Patients who will benefit most from an individual consultation include those who are new to medical cannabis, senior citizens, cancer and pain patients.
Your Medical Cannabis Specialist will cover the following:
Your medical history
Your past experience with cannabis and present medications
Information about CBD vs THC
Delivery methods including the medicinal effects vs duration
Product options found at Bud and Bloom that will address your unique needs and goals
Appointments are 45 minutes and there is a fee of $65 which includes follow up. If you would like to make an appointment you can email clinic@BudandBloomOC.com or call 714-928-9129 to get more information.
