TerraVida Holistic Centers
Founding and background story:
In 2016, when Governor Wolf signed Act 16 into law, Chris Visco and her business partner, Adina Birnbaum, started thinking about joining forces once again. Having worked side by side within their own communities for years, they felt they would make a great team as dispensary owners, sharing the same values and passion for patient care and home grown community involvement.
TerraVida’s President, Christina (Chris) Visco was born in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania where she has lived for 45 years. She is married with three children, Tanner 19, Molly, 15 and Darby 14. Both of Chris’ mentors, her grandmother and uncle suffered long, painful battles with cancer. Each withering away and suffering through pain for long periods of time. When medical marijuana began to surface in the United States as a holistic means to lessen pain, and increase appetites of cancer patients, Chris’ interest in the industry grew.
Adina is a lifelong resident of Pennsylvania. Adina and her husband, Valentin Gorski live in Springfield Township, Montgomery County and have two children, Sasha 21, and Evan 18.
Adina’s first experience with the benefits of medical marijuana was with her friend and neighbor. Five years ago, he was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and passed away within a year of being diagnosed. One of the few things that helped with with the pain and the nausea associated with the treatment he did in the beginning stages of his diagnosis was marijuana. Caring for her neighbor, along with his wife, was a labor of love. He taught Adina how to deal with illness and all about dignity and compassion. He was grateful that he had access to marijuana, and Adina couldn’t imagine how someone with his level of pain could be denied this access. When Adina learned that medical marijuana was being legalized, she knew that it was something that she wanted to explore.
TerraVida Holistic Centers has created a unique atmosphere with the most compassionate, patient focused professionals who are here to make you feel at home, answer your questions and provide you with the highest quality medical marijuana products in Pennsylvania.
