Addition to PACC Network

December 2, 2017

We are excited to introduce TerraVida Holistic Centers to our preferred partner network and online cannabis community. At PACC we are actively networking and engaging the community in Pennsylvania to secure connections to cannabis businesses that have values and visions that align with our core values. TerraVida Holistic Centers and the members of the TerraVida family are passionate about patient quality of life and delivering the highest quality medicine possible. That is exactly why we are happy to add them to our community without hesitation. 


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.

A note from PACC:

Today’s Back to Basics post will highlight capsules and medical edibles. As of now the PA DOH has not approved any candy or infused food edibles. That unfortunately means you will not be able to find your go to gummies or favorite hard candy edibles in a Pennsylvania dispensary (for now). On the other hand you can still find a similar effect and relief with a capsule form of mmj. 

Capsules are available in a variety of ratios t...

A note from Norml:

Today, you were a part of making history. The House Judiciary Committee just approved the MORE Act on a bipartisan vote of 24-10. This is legislation that tens-of-thousands advocated for by sending messages, making phone calls, and meeting with lawmakers in DC and district offices.

This marks the first time that a congressional committee has ever passed a bill to remove marijuana from the Controlled Substances...

We’re back today for another back to basics post. Tinctures or sublingual oils are an easy and effective way to medicate especially for first time patients. For patients who are seeking relief but do not necessarily want to feel intoxicated or high it is recommended to start with a 15:1, 4:1, or 1:1 ratio product. For patients with a low tolerance we suggest starting with a 15:1 or a 4:1 ratio of CBD to THC. Simply place the l...
