About us

Our Story

When my wife and I began helping patients acquire medical cannabis cards out of our first clinic in 2009, I had no idea how profoundly this ancient healing herb would help so many of my patients not only manage their symptoms, but actually get better.

Now we have three clinic locations – our main office on Kauai (Kapaa) and two satellite locations on the Big Island (Pahoa & Ocean View).

Our primary service at all locations is medical cannabis evaluation & registration. Please note: WE DO NOT DISPENSE MEDICAL CANNABIS OR NARCOTIC PAIN MEDICATION OF ANY KIND. Considering that cannabis has proven to be much safer and less addicting than the majority (if not all) prescription narcotics, it is my policy to refrain from prescribing controlled substances for chronic pain management.
