In order to provide our patients with the highest level of care, our goal is to create a treatment plan that will best suit your needs. We are developing technology to better serve the patient by connecting targeted research based on a patient's profile and biometrical factors. Our promise is to fill the gaps in your treatment plan through the support of the Essence Spa and Cannabis Treatment Center, Green Essence Florida dispensary network and GE subscription based plans. We recognize that often patients find themselves in a trail and error scenario because of a lack of pertinent information and consideration of biometrics. Our promise is to help patients find the best treatment plan for them, not what's trending, not the highest percentages, but what truly works best for their body.
