Further, OrganiCareUSA will engage in social entrepreneurship research, education, and develop best practices for medical cannabis.  Importantly, OrganiCareUSA seeks the opportunity to engage in, develop, and have peer reviewed evidence based cannabis practices.  OrganiCareUSA will actively engage in building coalitions, policy analysis, encourage citizen participation, engage decision makers, and exhibit cultural competency, self-awareness, emotional intelligence, social empathy, conflict management, active listening, trauma inform service delivery, and collaboration with members and the community.

OrganiCareUSA will honor local culture and work collaboratively with indigenous members to build grassroots interest participation.  Together we will mold a collective social vision, identify market opportunities congruent with cultural norms and traditions, and identify ways to capitalize on community social capital.
