Indorgro™ Founder, Brad Rubin, was diagnosed with spinal stenosis in 2011. After 4 spinal surgeries, Brad was continuously prescribed opioid medications to help manage and relieve chronic neuropathic pain symptoms. These recurring prescriptions of powerful medications impacted him and his family’s livelihood immensely.
Brad’s story, however, took a positive turn when he discovered medical cannabis as an alternative to opioids. After 5 long years of being prescribed opioid medications, Brad transitioned to taking medical cannabis in May 2017.
Still, this solution came at an astronomical cost. Therefore, Brad decided to educate himself on growing his own supply of cannabis at the highest quality and lowest cost.
Growing cannabis for medical purposes allowed Brad to find the right mixture of genetics that helped relieve and manage symptoms of chronic pain and thereby significantly improving his quality of life, as well as his family’s and patients alike.
