Our dispensary director is a long-term medical professional with 28 years of experience working with patients of all populations and conditions. Finally, our two health and fitness directors have a combined 30 years of experience coaching clients on fitness, nutrition, and supplementation. Their careers have addressed populations from children to seniors including clients affected by: Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Cerebral palsy, cancer, and joint replacement. As a group, our goal, as stated in our mission, is to provide solutions to ensure a higher quality of life where mind, body, and soul are healthy, energized, and balanced!

What's in a Name?

You may have noticed our name consists of two recognizable words. “Chesa” was chosen to reflect a part of our great State, the Chesapeake Bay. Our bay is responsible for not only developing our state, but also our great nation! Throughout history, the Chesapeake Bay has provided a means of food, a method of making a living, an instrument of travel, and is one of the most diverse ecosystems in our nation. It is very special, and in our eyes, the bay gives this little State great presence! As our success grows we hope to be able to give back and make certain that the Chesapeake Bay continues to thrive for years to come.

“Canna” obviously was chosen for cannabis, and like the bay, is very special. Our ancestors knew it, animals know it, and thankfully, we are now living in a time where it has come full circle, and many will benefit from medical cannabis. We are honored to be able to help this movement gain momentum and we look forward to helping all of our patients.

Thank you for choosing Chesacanna!
