Danielle Sedgwick and Laura Franklin co-founded Leaf for Life, a nonprofit organization focused on cannabis educational programs for veterans and families. Sedgwick and Franklin both have family members who are American military veterans and suffer from PTSD. Their shared experiences at home served as an impetus to start a larger support network for those in need.
Leaf for Life is dedicated to de-stigmatizing cannabis myths and helping families find relief. Sedgwick has been a long-time proponent of natural and holistic remedies and wanted to create a forum where she could help educate those diagnosed with PTSD and mental health, and also family members experiencing the residual side-effects.
