Our Promise

CannaConnect is dedicated to providing personalized care to
military veterans and their families as well as those still serving.

Creating a nurturing environment – one that is free of cost and hassle – is
something that we will always strive to preserve and ultimately stand behind.

Our People

CannaConnect has built its reputation supporting the veteran community from coast to coast due in large part to the people that have chosen to align themselves with our organization.

Our veteran ambassadors consist of former and current JTF2 operators, senior warrant officers, master trainers from the DND, Mental Health Commission, and OSI as well as a network of dedicated volunteers and top-tier administrators. It is no secret that our veteran ambassadors are the backbone of CannaConnect, helping to service those that have served our country and continue to do so.

Working in collaboration with our frontline network of veteran ambassadors is our team of leading physicians, with specialties across Psychiatry, Pain Management, Psychology, Family Medicine, and Emergency Medicine. Further reinforcing our commitment to supporting our veterans with health care professionals that can relate to their experiences and provide the compassion and care that is required, several of our physicians are themselves former Canadian and Israeli military veterans!

Our Voices

NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback

Neurofeedback is a 100% non-invasive, drug-free, brain training system that helps the central nervous system (CNS) make the best use of your brain’s natural resources. Neurofeedback training for the brain is similar to physical training for the body. Much of our suffering comes from pervasive recurring thoughts and feelings in which our minds become emotionally stranded or cognitively “stuck”. Neurofeedback prompts the brain to draw from its existing resources and pull itself out of these mental “ruts”.

The result is a more open and positive mindset in which obstacles are more manageable and problems more resolvable. Much like a mirror that promotes self-correction, NeurOptimal®’s proprietary neurofeedback program monitors your brain waves and then provides “feedback” to your central nervous system about what it has just done.

Our certified neurofeedback team specializes in supporting individuals suffering from PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, or brain-related traumas amongst other health conditions. Join the many neurofeedback users who enjoy the benefits of reduced stress, improved sleep and relief from conditions that used to hold them back from becoming all they were meant to be.
