IJJ Corporation and American Seed & Oil Introduce US Veterans PTSD Residential Treatment Facility Project to Include Marijuana in Treatment Plan
SILVER SPRING, Md., Feb. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- IJJ Corporation (IJJP) has entered into a partnership agreement with American Seed & Oil Company, a subsidiary of Algae International Group, Inc. (ALGA), to build a residential treatment facility for U.S. Veterans with chronic Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The treatment protocol will include, but will not require smoking or vaporizing marijuana but will require that all residents participate in an education program teaching sustainable marijuana cultivation skills.
Plans for the facility call for construction on a 100-acre sustainable farm concentrating primarily on hemp and marijuana cultivation where resident patient/students will have the opportunity to practice and hone organic and sustainable farming skills. Plans for the facility also include establishing partnerships with other organic and sustainable farming operations nearby the treatment facility/school where patient/students will have the opportunity to gain experience with crops other than hemp and marijuana.
The PTSD residential treatment facility for U.S. Veterans was conceived by the American Seed & Oil Company, a subsidiary of Algae International Group, Inc. (ALGA). American Seed & Oil Company is founded, majority owned and managed by U.S. Veterans. American Seed & Oil Company approached IJJ Corporation based on IJJ's recent success with the innovative partnerships to expand marijuana farming facilities in Canada and the Michigan Plant Technologies LLC.
"As a wartime Veteran myself, I am personally very enthusiastic about American Seed & Oil Company's plan and I am likewise committed to seeing the plan come to fruition," said IJJ Corporation's Chairman and President, Clifford Pope. "Based on IJJ's experience with the partnerships that have contributed towards the expansion of the Canadian facilities and Michigan Plant Technologies, I am confident IJJ is the right organization to see American Seed & Oil Company's U.S. Veteran PTSD Residential Treatment Facility funded and built."
"American Seed & Oil Company has had the U.S. Veteran PTSD Residential Treatment Facility in the works for almost a year now," said Steven Rash, CEO of American Seed & Oil and Algae International Group, and I am also a Veteran. "We have identified land, recruited university sponsorship, and engaged professional social work expertise. When we learned of IJJ's experience with marijuana projects in Canada and Michigan, their project funding strategy seemed to be the right fit."
IJJ Corporation and American Seed & Oil are not alone in their interest regarding the potential benefits of marijuana in the treatment of PTSD. In December of 2014, The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment awarded a $2 million grant to the non-profit Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) for their planned study of marijuana for symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in 76 U.S. veterans, approved by the U.S Department of Health and Human Services.
