““If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.”

Providing easily accessible knowledge for cannabis consumers and hemp enthusiasts to create independence from corporations is one of our main goals. We believe it’s important to be able to provide ourselves with any herbal needs we have; without unnecessary dependence, here at
Private Caregivers Collective we believe help should be available to everyone. From our conception, we felt it crucial to provide a
holistic service, which means assisting with every step of the process from beginning to end. The information and education we
provide has been collected and analyzed to provide an honest, unbiased, and fact based knowledge on not only the biology of the
plant, but also on the socio-political effect this industry is having on our community.

Everyone worries about what they put in their bodies. Many chronic pain patients have been prescribed opiates at doses exceeding the current guideline. Tapering those doses can be difficult, with patients fear a return to a state of overwhelming pain. Studies have shown time and time again that cannabis helps. With COVID-19 not helping, but only boosting one of the biggest surges of overdose deaths since the crack epidemic. Access to cleaner, healthier ways to support and improve your health journey are now crucially needed more than ever.

Our goal is to make sure you are informed about each and every part of your journey: from the seed, to the soil, to the strain. Being able to grow your own plants in the privacy of your own home.. We provide grow equipment, education, seeds, advice, and legal information regarding all forms of hemp and holistic practices, and free educational services for those who struggle in finding their path to healing. This means personalized and private consultations, detailed information, trustworthy products, and good old fashioned straightforward honesty to help you nurture an intimate, mutually beneficial relationship with a healing plant.

In our movement towards knowledge and accessibility, we are focusing on combating the injustices in our country disproportionately affecting minority communities. According to a 2020 analysis by The Washington Post, between 2015 and 2019, there were 3,631 marijuana arrests in the District of Columbia. Eighty-nine percent of those arrested were Black, even as they make up only 45 percent of the city’s population. Along with that, studies show that the opioid crisis in our country is responsible for a 38.4 percent increase in overdose deaths from 2018- 2019, compared with the 2019-2020. Each and every patient is informed about any and all aspects of the cannabis cultivation process that can be tailored to your needs/wants.

It has been proven that an increase from one to two storefront dispensaries in a county is associated with an estimated 17% reduction in all opioid related mortality rates, and we believe it is our responsibility to provide our patrons with all of the knowledge, care, and encouragement we can. This is an effort to help reduce the stigma associated with cannabis and alternative medicine.
