Led by a team of physicians, pharmacists, and medical experts, Modern Health Concepts develops safe, effective, and innovative medical cannabis products. We have 50+ years of horticultural expertise through our family-owned, third-generation farm. MHC also uses the industry’s most medically precise and technologically advanced production techniques, because transparency from seed to sale results in exceptional quality that patients and doctors can trust.
MHC offers patients relief through a range of all-natural medical cannabis products, including low-THC, high-CBD cannabis and full-strength medical cannabis. We also hold Florida’s only license to manufacture and sell Haleigh’s Hope, a cannabis oil that has provided tremendous relief to patients suffering from severe epilepsy. By early 2017, we plan on offering vaporizing cartridges with other treatment options to follow, such as medical cannabis capsules and oils, in accordance with Florida law.
The lifeblood of our organization is the creation of cannabis products using the highest standards of production at every step of the process and advancing research and clinical trials on the use of medical cannabis. As we develop new product options, Modern Health Concepts will continue to passionately advocate, creating awareness of medical cannabis and increasing access for the patients who can benefit from it. Physicians and patients who want to drive progress are invited to join the medical cannabis movement.
