The Center for Compassion LLC

A certification center that offers a full physician review and certification for the Michigan Medical Marihuana Program. The Center for Compassion LLC was founded by Michael Thue and his family of patients that have been dedicated to christian services and helping one another in our community.

With the passing of the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act of 2008, we see this law in the light that it gives a chance to share this amazing, life giving plant and all of it’s healing properties with other patients in the area. We assist and consult patients and caregivers on all aspects surrounding Medical Marijuana.

Our goal is to provide up to date information and education pertaining to Medical Marijuana, as well as changes to our laws here in Michigan to assist patients in growing the best possible medicine, and helping them to find the appropriate strain that best matches their condition. We offer a wide range of available strains and cuttings to assist patients until they are able to care for themselves.
