First Patient-TerraVida Holistic Centers-Cozmo
Robert “Cozmo” Consulmagno was the first Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana patient to be welcomed by TerraVida Holistic Centers on their opening day. Cozmo was excited to finally be able to legally purchase cannabis for the first time ever in PA. He hopes that this medicinal cannabis will bring him much needed relief.
Cozmo is a five year marine veteran, Jiu Jitsu champion, three-time world record holder, and advocate for cannabis and mental health. Cozmo understands firsthand because he also battles with both Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (ptsd) and Bipolar Disorder. He aims to be the face for veterans, cannabis patients and those who suffer from mental illness. He wants to crush the stigma behind both mental illness and cannabis so that those in need can begin seeking the help they deserve without repercussions.
