THCF has a variety of programs to educate and assist the community.
Perhaps most notably, THCF Medical Clinics has offices in 9 states and has helped over 150,000 patients obtain their state's permit for medical marijuana. Our physicians help qualified patients get a state permit to legally possess, use and grow medical marijuana. Our clinics help patients learn to cultivate cannabis and teach the about alternatives to smoking, such as vaporization and making cannabis foods and extracts with oil, butter, alcohol and glycerine.
THCF has produced over 560 episodes of our live weekly TV show, Cannabis Common Sense. Our show is on cable television in Oregon, Washington, California, Colorado and Michigan, and is available, now, on demand on our websites.
THCF publishes a periodical called Hemp News. Hemp News is the oldest online ezine, which began posting in 1991 on Usenet newsgroups, the predecessor of today's world-wide web.
THCF Museum has a diverse collection of cannabis and hemp artifacts and items. THCF has over a hundred antique medical cannabis containers, bottles and packaging, with multiple items from Eli Lilly, Parke Davis, Johnson & Johnson, Sharpe & Domme, to name some of the pharmaceutical companies still in existence today. THCF Museum has over 400 different books on marijuana and hemp, and many cannabis-related photos, paintings, videos and works of art.
THCF Medical Gardens has, with state permits, helped medical marijuana patients obtain medical marijuana and seeds and cuttings to start their own garden. THCF Medical Gardens is proud to announce that we won the top 4 awards in Oregon NORML's 2008 Oregon Medical Cannabis Awards, a doubleblind barcoded judging of cannabis based on six criteria, potency, aroma, taste, smoothness, appearance and medicinal effect.
THCF also purchases advertising to educate the public and tell the truth about hemp and cannabis.
