Compassionate Cannabis Clinic is a the preeminent practice of cannabis medicine in the state of Florida.
The Compassionate Cannabis Clinic offers patients in Venice and Western Florida specialized treatment from a compassionate doctor utilizing medical marijuana recommendations. With a vested interest in the care of their patients, Compassionate Cannabis Clinic strives to educate their visitors and encourage them to do their research as they pursue an improved quality of life.
Dr. Barry M Gordon graduated from the Ohio State University College of Medicine in 1981 as one of the first emergency medicine doctors to graduate in the United States. With over 32 years working in the emergency room, Dr. Gordon wrote thousands of narcotic prescriptions, and once Oxycontin became a traditional medication he started to see many adverse effects of prescription overdoses. He would revive thousands of overdose patients, with more than 60% returning within the next few weeks with another overdose, and this constant pain caused by pharmaceutical painkillers left a bad taste in the doctor’s mouth. The doctor started searching for an alternative therapy to offer, and found marijuana as a viable option that pleasantly surprised him with its benefits and few side effects. Poring through hours of research, Dr. Gordon’s enthusiasm was kindled soon before Florida overwhelming legalized medical marijuana use, and together with executive director Patrick DeLuca, they founded the Compassionate Cannabis Clinic of Venice, opening in January 2017.
The Compassionate Cannabis Clinic has been recognized as the premiere practice of cannabis medicine, where they see patients for a variety of illnesses and create a treatment plan utilizing medical marijuana. The doctor and staff feel a duty to their patients, advocating and educating them on the many uses of medical marijuana as a therapy and working one-on-one with each to end their suffering. They prioritize their patient’s care and education, and are working hard with state legislature to ensure all qualifying Florida patients can quickly and safely access medical marijuana for their conditions.
