CONCEIVED FROM THE STRESSES OF BATTLE, TO HELP EVERYONE BATTLING DAY-TO-DAY LIFE.
HVGC is on a mission to help put an end to the opioid and suicide epidemic plaguing our Nation’s Heroes. We believe that exploring the benefits of medical cannabis is the most effective way to combat these issues and bring proper aid to those who gave so much for our great nation.
HVGC was founded by U.S. Special Operations Veterans (Marine Raiders) that served following 9-11. Since its inception, HVGC has been in discussions with some of the cannabis industry’s top researchers and has developed a veteran based protocol to effectively prove the benefits of medical cannabis.
As a disabled veteran owned business, HVGC is intimately aware of the daily challenges that their fellow veteran brothers and sisters face as a result of their time spent on the battlefield. Some of these wounds are not visible to the naked eye.
When the U.S. Military deploys to the combat theater, roughly 60% of those deployed will be prescribed opioids upon return to the United States, and over half will develop a dependency/addiction. This has caused far too many vets to lose their way, and in an ever-increasing pandemic, take their own lives.
HVGC began its outreach into the veteran community by observing first-hand and listening to the suffering of veterans. They began researching medical cannabis and spoke with the top experts in the field. As their research progressed, the answer to this crisis became clear: develop alternate medical solutions for those suffering with pain, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, sleep disorders, and most critically, are at significant risk of suicide. HVGC cares about those who suffer and believe that medical cannabis is the way of the future to help those in need. Establishing a recreational cannabis brand will be used to assist in accomplishing these goals and ultimately serve as a profit center for HVGC.

BATTLE BROTHERS FOUNDATION
There is a complex challenge facing our nation’s veterans: a striking number are taking their lives, the medical care offered through standard treatment facilities are often addictive, opiate based substances, and many find themselves stagnated from impactful community and meaningful economic growth. Concerned for our own, The Battle Brothers Foundation is striving for change by supporting economic programs, mentorships, and medical cannabis treatment methodologies.
