19 october/november 2021 | cannabis patient care patient focus Conclusion The couple's cannabis enterprise, Grace Health and Wellness, aspires to be a phytopharmaceutical company. "That idea came from the multifaceted approach that we saw which was producing good results with people," Brambila said. "We feel that plant medicine should be something that should be researched, and should be identified and created and made into medicines that are sold in the open market. We really want to develop those therapies so that people can find alternatives." He said that cannabis should be part of a legaliza- tion-and-access social movement. "If we don't do that, we're going to lose a lot because we're not listening to the feedback of the medical outcome anymore," he added. DiMonda had a theory. "If we could find a politician where it's either the politician or a family member who might have an illness, and they openly turn to cannabis, that's when I think that you will finally have more doors opening. Right now, politi- cians are afraid to discuss any of this." She had a final word for those cancer patients considering cannabis—don't be afraid. "That's the biggest thing I tell people is don't be afraid. You have a 50/50 shot. It can work or it can't. The risk of that gamble is minute. If it's going to help, try it."
