Compassionate Alternatives is a national nonprofit organization founded in Columbus, Ohio in 2018 to aid patients in this new medical cannabis market. But our mission knows no geographic boundaries, and we exist to support patients in communities everywhere.

We are a young organization with big ambitions – and we need your help to make a difference!
