Affordability Program

Leaf411 is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that operates the first ever, free cannabis patient hotline staffed by cannabis-trained nurses. The hotline and cannabis nurses provide plant education, guidance, and anonymity to those with health-related questions about marijuana, CBD and hemp use. Leaf411 was built on the belief that affordability and accessibility to professional medical advice should never be barriers to using cannabis safely and effectively. To further this mission, Leaf411 has created additional programs focused on community education and product affordability, creating partnerships that connect cannabis industry leaders and diverse community organizations across the country for social good.

Education and Support

Leaf411’s free hotline is available to all program participants to promote safe and effective use of donated marijuana, CBD and hemp products. Our cannabis-trained nurses provide plant facts, information, and product support for patients on their cannabis journey.

Product Donations

Marijuana, CBD and Hemp products are donated to Leaf411. Strategic partnerships help Leaf411 get donated products into the hands of low-income patients through our partnerships with participating retailers and dispensaries.

Financial Scholarships

Access to medical marijuana is literally a life-or-death issue for some patients, but annual physician evaluations can be cost prohibitive for patients and their families. To support the legal use of cannabis, and in partnership with AMR, Leaf411 provides financial scholarships for “red cards” to qualifying patients.

Medical Marijuana Evaluations

Red Card Scholarship Fund

A note from our Program Chair, Amy Bourlon-Hilterbran:

It is an honor and a privilege to serve on the Board and as Chair of the Affordability Program for Leaf411.

As the parent of a child with the catastrophic form of epilepsy, we have seen incredibly dark days trying to stop his seizures with pharmaceuticals. It was only when doctors gave up on him and told us to take him home and “make him comfortable”, that we decided to try medical marijuana to save our son. Our only regret is that we didn’t try cannabis sooner. The plant literally saved our son’s life.

As a cannabis patient,  our son no longer takes the pharmaceuticals that were shutting down his organs; we live with days, weeks, sometimes months with NO seizures at all and his kidneys and liver have completely recovered from the pharmaceutical damage.

As a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant), Certified Nutritionist, Holistic Naturopath and the mother of a child who has battled seizures his entire life, being a part of Leaf411 makes my heart soar. This is such an incredible, inspiring and needed aspect for the cannabis patient and those that love them. Information and education are critical for timely treatment and improving quality of health.

We have seen medical cannabis help thousands of patients and give hope to people when they thought there was none left. 

I look forward to Chairing the Leaf411 Affordability Program and helping as many patients as we possibly can, as quickly as we possibly can.

I would like to invite any cannabis and hemp companies who would like to participate in the Leaf411 Affordability Program to email me for further information at:

Let me know how I can assist, we truly are all in this together and Leaf411 cares!
