Texas Grower, Dispensary Compassionate Cultivation Joins Epilepsy Foundation in Funding Partnership

Texas Grower, Dispensary Compassionate Cultivation Joins Epilepsy Foundation in Funding Partnership

Compassionate Cultivation, a vertically integrated CBD business in Texas, is partnering with state chapters of the Epilepsy Foundation to ease the financial burden for patients. With subsidized health insurance off the table, CEO Morris Denton felt compelled to step up and help those in need.

The funding partnership begins with a $5,000 donation to both Epilepsy Foundation Central & South Texas and Epilepsy Foundation Texas. From there, future investment in this program will come from revenue generated by non-cannabis merchandise sold at Compassionate Cultivation, like branded hats and hoodies. (An online store is forthcoming.) The money will be managed by the Epilepsy Foundation, which will assess patients and qualify them for partial or full coverage of CBD costs, depending on income.

Denton says this partnership stemmed from the conversations he had during the state licensing process. “I had the opportunity to meet with dozens of patients that have epilepsy or dozens of family members that have kids or brothers or sisters with epilepsy,” Denton tells Cannabis Dispensary.
