  1. I am a 59-year-old male that has suffered back spasms for about 30 years. I don’t have 215 card, but I’m about ready to get one. I live in Crescent City. My question is, what strains may work for back spasms?

    Thanks, Jim Hooper

    1. Jim,
      Thank you for visiting our website and how unfortunate to suffer for over 30 years. In our collective’s experience and the feedback from our patients is that there is not one strain necessarily for a specific ailment. Patients experience has been that strains higher in certain cannabinoids may be more effective in offering relief from spasms. Cannabis higher in CBD is used by many patients who are trying to stop sever muscle spasms sometimes caused by neuro-degenerative disorders. Other patients find relief from using strains high in THC for is analgesic or pain-relieving effects. Our facility lab tests its medicines so you can identify which strains are higher in certain cannabinoids and better make decisions about which strain is right for you. We also offer salves, lotions, and sprays infused with cannabis that offer local topical relief without smoking. It is best to work with your doctor when testing new medicines. We would be happy to answer more questions when you obtain your 215 and visit or collective. Wish you the best.

    2. Hi Jim,

      Check out Green Queen. It’s not the easiest to find, but it’s known to help with muscle spasms. I have a couple MS friends who have found it helpful. Leafly is also a good resource for searching strains. It has their common medicinal uses and often patient reviews.


  2. Hi guys !!! Just wondering if I need a 215 in order to buy a salve … I’m a court reporter in a court room and talk to my attorneys every now and then about CA laws regarding the use of CBD … It’s a very confusing issue but after 18 years of gymnastics, a broken back and being a reporter for 13 years I’m tired of the pain and I need answers and I’m not getting answers at work !!! Just looking into a CBD salve for pain without the head buzz … Appreciate any help from you guys 😊. Thanks for your time !!! Denise

    1. Hello Denise. 18 years of gymnastics is a heavy load on the body regardless of the broken back! Our patients have given us positive feedback on both THC and CBD savles. Traditional salves work locally to help with pain and inflammation without giving patients a psychoactive head high. If a salve is specially made with a chemical carrier D9THC can pass through the skin/blood barrier and produce a head high. We do not offer these types of salves at our collective. We do carry a wide range of traditional topical applications including salves, creams, lotions, and even bathing salts. You are required to obtain a 215 doctor’s recommendation to be a member of our collective. It sounds like you are more than qualified to be a patient and we can offer you a list of doctor’s in the area if you are local to Humboldt County. Here is some more information on the many ways cannabis may benefit you including topical applications: http://www.safeaccessnow.org/using_medical_cannabis We wish you well and hope you find relief with the use of cannabis.

  3. After fighting four different types of cancer and so far in remission for one of them….the HPRC has been my Angel of hope and their meds are awesome bar-none. I have used RSO and the high CBD’s from Purest of Indica straines I can do…and it works for me. With my current cancer in stage 4 and in my Lymph nodes …I’m hoping to get a stronger RSO to really kick the butt on this UGLY MONSTER -CANCER-. All of the staff are just wonderful to me and my dog Angel

  4.

  5. Been in 3 or 4 times. Always get a big “Hi! How are you?!” and a smile.
    They listen to your pain issues, and have good suggestions. More mainstream businesses could learn from them.

  6. Hello, I’m a 23 year old suffering from an extreme case of endometriosis. I’ve had 7 surgeries in the past 2 years including a complete hysterectomy trying to get rid of the painful disease. Wondering if maybe I should try cannabis to relieve some of my pain instead of the strong medication that I’ve had to take for years. Looking for any type of information that may help me with controlling this terrible pain. Nobody understands that I’m really in so much pain. I need help! Please.

    1. Madeline, we do service many patients who suffer from endometriosis. Many patients have expressed their pain levels have been dramatically reduced by the use of THC and CBD. Changing medicine is definitely something that should be discussed with your primary caregiver, but if you are in the Arcata area and can stop by our collective we would be happy to share with you some of the choices other patients have made and how those medicines have impacted them! We wish you the best.

  7. I am a Colorado medical marijuana card holder. Leafly notified me of a new strain–CP3O –that would definitely help!! The locations that carry this strain are all in California, including you. We have our own grow room & are wondering… How can I get some seeds or clones of this strain??

    Thank you for your help,

    1. Hello Chalaine,
      Under the current law we are only able to service Medical Cannabis Patients in California. Our patients are required to have a Prop 215 doctor’s recommendation from a Doctor in good standing in the State of California. Until State/Federal laws change we are unable to send any products through any mail services. The strain you are looking for, and many other great CBD strains have been bred and cultivated in Humboldt County, but other than making a visit to Humboldt County we are unsure of how to match up this product to those patients in need. We can share information around the cultivator but not actually provide it out of the state. Best of luck and let us know if we can help you with any other questions.

  8. HPRC is very Beneficial to Me. I have COPD and cannot Smoke. I use the Yummy Edibles. Michelle is in Customer Service there and does a wonderful job. I have had a broken Hip, knee, back and Part of My Lung was removed. I also suffer Panic Attacks. So I am a member there. Wide Selection of Product. Bryann is also a Good Man. With these products I can manage My Pain and Mental outlook on life. It allows Me to Live the same way that other people live. Take Care. Doktorbob

  9. On my initial visit I was warmly greeted by a young woman behind the counter. I walked in with my ID and other documents in hand so I was promptly guided to the requisite paperwork for being a patient. This only took minutes and I was pleased not to have to add superfluous information not required in my need for medical marijuana. Once my paperwork was reviewed I was asked about what types of symptoms I wanted addressed. I was then led to the display cabinets to peruse edibles that best addressed what I was looking for. After selecting products for purchase I was gifted an edible for being a first time customer. Upon checkout I was given a copy of SCLABS Budtender’s Guide to the Cannabinoids and a Humboldt Patient Resources pamphlet. This information is invaluable and this is the first time in any dispensary visit that I was given this type of information and personalized patient service . I personally believe in medical marijuana for medical and recreational use and I am greatly impressed with the professionalism and attention to the medical application found at this dispensary.

    1. Thank you very much Gilbert for you comment and your visit. We aim to provide you with this experience at every visit. With all the new information available around medical cannabis in can be overwhelming visiting a cannabis collective. From our staff and our bud tenders, we thank you for your visit and being part of our cannabis collective!

  10. My name is Javon I’m a 22 year old man who lives in eureka I suffer from insomnia and sleep depression and I’m wondering what best strains will help

    1. Hello Javon,
      Many of our patients comment that a mix of CBD and THC is most beneficial for those seeking sleep. We also carry a great tincture called deep sleep that is infused with other relaxing herbs in addition to cannabis. Next week we will be carrying a new product from SensiChews that is an edible infused with melatonin. Take a look into CBN medicine as well, which occurs when THC is degraded by light and oxygen and tends to be more sedating and making sleep more inviting for many patients! Feel free to stop by and ask our bud tenders more questions, we are happy to help you out!

  11. My mom is 88 and has stage 4 lung cancer. I think trying your products might help her and I am working with her oncologist to obtain the 215 Rx. Will I be able to come in with her Rx and meet with you because she can’t tolerate leaving the house.

    1. Nancy,
      Please make sure you are added to your mother’s doctor recommendation as a caregiver. This will allow you to obtain medicine for your mother and keep her comfortable at home. We would be happy to answer any questions around the products that may offer some relief for your mother. Best wishes and we look forward to helping you out!

  12. Hello my name is jenney .I have had seizures for 35 years and I’m looking for something with the heavy buzz and for pain the only things that I found that works is the couch locking indica, can you point me right direction? Thank you … I will be your first-time patient today

    1. Hi Jenney,
      On your visit take a look at the Trident. The Trident tests between 5-6%THC and up to 16% CBD. Many seizure patients comment that CBD is the most beneficial cannabinoid to assist with seizures, but over time many of these patients comment that they need to slowly increase the amount of THC in their medicine, but tend to keep the ratio CBD dominant or balanced 1:1. We would be happy to show you what products may match up to this request on your next visit. Thank you for inquiry and we look forward to assisting you.

  13. The medicine is top of the line. Everyone in the staff is great… but have to say, Michelle is amazing. She she very educated and professional. She makes you feel very welcomed and keeps the energy very positive!

  14. I am looking for a physician who is knowledgeable in treating skin cancer with cannibis. This is fairly urgent as I’ve waited too long. I need to know dosages, ratios and topical or systemic or both.

  15.

    1. We do not currently carry Dixie Elixirs but we have an organic product similar by Space Gem Candy called The Fruit Elixirs. These drinks are potent, clean, and effective! Also ask our staff at your next visit for a copy of our cannabis juice recipe called Sunshine Shooters to help with the taste of the juice.

  16. I have advanced Parksons Disease , TBI and post Tramatic Stress. Will CBD help my tremors or other symptoms?

    1. Hello Jack. We help many patients who suffer from Parkinson’s Disease and PTSD. Our patients comment that CBD is very helpful in reducing tremors and spasms, as well as lowering anxiety. Our collective has CBD products available in flower buds, topical, tinctures, and edibles. Feel free to stop by our collective for more information. Best Wishes!
