Liberty's Cannabis Education Centers offer patients access to high quality, clean and safe pharmaceutical grade cannabis. Each location provides exceptional patient care through a comprehensive educational platform that includes tools, resources and compassionate one-on-one consultations geared towards informing patients on medical cannabis use.
All of Liberty's CEC locations in Florida will offer a wide variety of products and brands, such as Aphria, Mary's Medicinals and Incredibles Edibles.
