Witt said he uses cannabis for medicinal reasons.
“I used to live in Washington state and it was recreational out there. So I felt like if we could help people with it, why not?” he said.
He knows he can’t change everyone’s mind about the use of cannabis but encourages them to do their own research on the plant.
“You can see how many people have changed from taking big pharmaceutical stuff, like Oxycontin and other pain medicines. A lot of people that we deal with here have gotten rid of all those simply by using like CBD and THC to help with that pain,” he said, referring to cannabidiol and tetrahydrocannabinol — two natural compounds found in cannabis. “And it’s actually helped them a lot.”
