My name is Joshua Winer, and I’m a member of the Omni Medical Services family.

In February 2017, I became a patient; but when I saw the good being done, I knew I had to become a part of it.

I am epileptic and suffer from headaches as a result of brain surgery back in 2013, before medical marijuana was an option. Since then, I’ve gone through my share of pills to handle the headaches, which brought on more side effects than it did pain relief. Finally one day, my neurologist recommended medical marijuana. Even though my headaches are not completely gone, they are far less severe than they’ve ever been. Plus, I’m no longer on prescription pain medication.

Now I can give back. Now I can help others suffering from many different debilitating conditions, including epilepsy, as a way to pay it forward for all the help I’ve received. I intend on using this blog to inform and opine on the medical marijuana world in Florida, to help those better understand what’s going on, and how it might affect us all.
