Harvesting Hope was inspired by a young boy. Frustrated with the inability of conventional medicine to control his seizures, the boy’s parents discussed medical marijuana as a treatment option. After finding that Arizona families had nowhere to turn, a local dispensary agreed to help the young boy and his family.

The young boy’s condition improved dramatically. This success made us realize that we could help other children in Arizona who were suffering from pediatric epilepsy. Our idea was to form an organization that could provide the medicine and resources families need to treat their children. Harvesting Hope was born.

Through our partnership with Harvest of Tempe, Harvesting Hope is able to provide access to a strain of marijuana that is a derivative of Harlequin, which is a sativa dominant strain. This strain was chosen specifically because of its high CBD content, which many families report is effective for treating pediatric epilepsy. The medicine comes in several forms, including flower, tinctures, and syringes

Medicine would be useless without guidance from an experienced professional. Our medical director has been treating pediatric epilepsy, as well as many other conditions, with marijuana since 2010. He was also the first dispensary medical director in Arizona and has become a respected leader in the community.
