Recognizing the hopelessness that families feel when facing a serious illness, ECHO was compelled to create a bridge connecting those seeking the therapeutic properties of cannabinoids or cannabidiol (CBD) with the resources, community support, and medical professional guidance needed to move forward. For those feeling that the traditional medical community has nothing more to offer, we are ECHO.
