Empower Clinics Inc. (https://www.empowerclinics.com) (OTC: EPWCF) (CSE: EPW) (FRA: 8EC), a leading owner and operator of medical cannabis and wellness clinics in the US, today announced that its recently opened clinic in downtown Chicago will honor all US military veterans by offering 50% discounts on its services through the end of 2018.

One of Empower Clinics’ main focuses is helping military veterans obtain medical cannabis registry cards for treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and its side effects associated with pain, sleep and stress. Empower’s medical doctors and staff can guide veterans through the state of Illinois’ 40 qualifying conditions, physician certification and registry card application forms required by the Illinois Department of Public Health. Veterans already receiving treatment can bring their existing medical records to Empower for physician review and certification, and in the coming months can move forward with cannabis-based and other overall wellness treatment options provided by Empower.

To be eligible, veterans need a DD Form 214 (Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty), a document the United States Department of Defense issues upon a military service member's retirement, separation, or discharge from the Armed Forces of the United States. Interested veterans must book appointments in advance by calling Empower Clinics, at 888-EMPOWER (888-367-6937).

Located in downtown Chicago at 160 N. Upper Wacker Drive, the clinic is staffed by licensed medical professionals and support personnel. Its opening followed the late August signature of a statewide measure by Illinois’ governor to expand access to medical cannabis as an alternative for opioid painkillers.

Empower Clinics offers a variety of physician-guided treatments to address a multitude of chronic pain conditions, as well as anxiety, PTSD and chemotherapy side effects. The company’s branded line of CBD products will also be available through the clinic. The company’s “Sollievo” (Italian for “relief”) products, available as tinctures or topical creams, are non-THC CBD, meaning that they are non-psychotropic: they do not directly affect mood, perception, or consciousness.

“We are fully committed to serving veterans from all five branches of the US military,” said Craig Snyder, Empower CEO and a former Naval Officer. “Military veterans are more likely than the general population to have one of the state’s 40 qualifying conditions for a medical cannabis registry card, so our wish is that this new program helps make treatment as accessible and affordable to Chicago-area veterans as possible.”
