Canna Help You?



Cannabis is legal in California and has become the most rigorously tested agriculture product on the planet. Canna Help You, a cannabis talk show, is brought to you by Mercy Wellness, a leading local cannabis retailer.

Mercy curates the widest and best selection of cannabis flower, edibles, oils and tinctures at the lowest, everyday prices.

Joe Sullivan is the leading cannabis expert at Mercy Wellness. “It’s taken me years to learn how to find the best products for Mercy customers. I’m dedicated to them and getting only the best I can find. Many of the products I like and that I buy for Mercy customers are created by people who had a powerful need themselves. Maybe a family member or friend had cancer or other illness and they were compelled to help them; so, they develop a product to help. Sometimes our customers just want to relax, or they need help sleeping. I constantly ask, what do our customers want and then I go find the best products on the market.”

Tune into Mercy’s Canna Help You? and hear stories from the cannabis frontier of legal, safe consumption. Enjoy yourself.

Our 11th show looks at how the passage of Prop 64 impacted programs that supplied medical marijuana to patients for free. The advent of recreational use in California has eliminated that option. Jetty Extracts is on a tour of California to gather signatures and support for SB 34 which would allow compassionate care programs to return, supplying free cannabis to seriously ill medical marijuana patients.

In this episode, host Michelle Marques and Joe Sullivan, Leading Expert and Product Manager at Mercy Wellness talk with Julie Ann Soukoulis, Owner of Home Instead Senior Care about the rise of cannabis use in the senior population. Seniors are turning to cannabis more often to deal with pain, sleep issues, agitation, depression, and more.

Under California law, the sale, distribution, manufacture and cultivation of cannabis by a state licensed operator is legal. However, under federal law these activities remain illegal. Nothing discussed here is intended to imply otherwise. The discussions are not to be construed as medical advice. Any discussion of the potential medical uses and benefits of cannabis or CBD are intended to encourage the listener to discuss those uses with the individual’s medical professional.
