J. Max Piergallini
Max Piergallini is relatively new to the cannabis community. A chronic pain patient for more than 20 years, Max found cannabis as an alternative to Opiate pain management in 2016. For him, Cannabis use has always been ‘legal’, which Max recognizes is a very different perspective to the majority of the cannabis community (however it is also a perspective he attempts to bring to the table wherever possible).
Cultivating his own legal plant medicine has been of great benefit, not only in financial savings over purchase, but as therapy, in and of itself. His work with Patriots Helping Vets- a nonprofit dedicated to providing Massachusetts veterans with access to the supplies necessary to grow their own- is the foundation for his activism and gives true meaning to his cannabis work.
Now a vocal advocate for cannabis as an opiate replacement, Max speaks from a personal perspective on Opiate addiction, recovery and cannabis cultivation as therapy for those who may be looking for such an outlet.
