Empower Clinics Portland Review (Formerly THCF Medical)


Empower Clinics – formerly known as THCF Medical Clinics – is not your standard medical marijuana clinic. Unlike some of these other “420 doctors in Oregon, they don’t just refer to a doctor and leave you to fend for yourself. They are one of a kind. Apart from providing abundant information about the industry and helping patients to understand which strains are best for them, they also help cannabis users to obtain medical marijuana cards.

In truth, Empower Clinics is one of the nation’s premier cannabis physician’s clinic. They are located all across the US and have helped over 250,000 patients to “get legal” in 12 states. We visited their Oregon office, but they have offices everywhere. You name it, they’ve got it. Oregon, Washington, California, Hawaii, Colorado, Nevada and Michigan.  If you need to obtain a permit to legally possess marijuana and want to work with a trustworthy service then Empower Clinics is the place to go.

Empower Clinics Portland: All You Need to Know

Like we mentioned, Empower Clinics isn’t your standard run-of-the-mill “420 Evaluation Clinic” — even by the West Coast’s standards. They are truly one of the most professional and highest quality services available, but be advised that they’re going to actually give you a thorough consultation before issuing you your approval for medical cannabis.

Also, even though this is a review for Empower Clinics in Portland, it’s worth pointing out that the establishment has other up-and-running services in Washington (state), as well as locations in Oregon, Illinois, Arizona, and Nevada. They estimate to see and treat nearly 200,000 patients and have recently set up a Telemedicine service so you can speak with a doctor and get approved for medical marijuana without ever having to leave your home.

In fact, the telemedicine service that Empower Clinics offers has become an extremely popular and reliable service, and most regard it as being equally as safe and efficient (if not more so) than actually going in and doing an in-person consultation.

The clinic also will provide high-level professional information about all things medical marijuana, so even if you’re not fully intent on applying for the actual MMJ card, be sure to schedule an appointment to speak with one of their healthcare professionals. As we said, this is no ordinary medical marijuana clinic in Portland; they are top-class, and their professional staff and services they offer prove it.

Products and Services

In addition to their in-clinic and online medical marijuana evaluation services in Portland, Empower Clinics is also one of only a handful of operations that owns their own cannabinoid extraction facility and proprietary formula for cannabis oil (medical CBD oil).

Called “Sollievo,” the medical professionals at Empower Clinics have recommended this cannabis-based CBD Oil to help treat things like pain, sleep problems (insomnia), digestion issues (including IBS/Crohn’s disease), anxiety, and other issues.

Further, Empower Clinics has recently made a massive investment to begin extracting the active phytocannabinoids (i.e. THC and CBD) from raw plant material. As mentioned above, this has allowed them to develop their very own proprietary formula (the ‘Sollievo’ label that we mentioned above), which can offer many of the therapeutic benefits of cannabis without any of the associated high.

The CBD extraction operation is based right here in Portland, and experts claim that the massive facility is able to produce upwards of 13,000 lbs of extract annually – including CBD distillates, isolates, and full-spectrum tinctures.

Highlights of Empower/THCF Clinics Portland

There were a lot of things that really stood out to us when we went out and conducted this Empower Clinics review. The knowledge that the professional staff provided was truly impressive, and it is clear that (unlike so many other West Coast operations), this is not a business that will hire just anyone to stand behind the counter and dish out information.

Also, they offer truly extraordinary and invaluable information for those looking to use medical cannabis to treat an ailment, but don’t know where to start. In today’s day and age where anything and everything exists in terms of medical cannabis options, they’ll be able to tell you what to use based on your condition, personal preferences, and what sorts of effects you want.

Without further ado, here are a few of the things that stood out the most to us:

  • Their first highlight is their service. They have a team of medical doctors and knowledgeable, caring support staff that you won’t find in most practices that are just in it for the money. They help you get informed and can assist with any legal aspects
  • Apart from just providing a service they also make sure you have the knowledge required to make educated decisions regarding your MJ. They hold an array of courses, seminars and classes.
  • Accessibility. This must be one of the best things about Empower Medical Clinics. They are located everywhere. Spread across 12 states, you can easily pick up your medical card or at least start the process.
  • Another thing we noticed about Empower is that when you’re given a time, they make sure that you’re in to see a doctor at that time. Well, 90% of the time 🙂 – The lady in front of us said that they were running late by 5 minutes. When we arrived, we had an appointment at 15:30. We were in an out in less than 30 mins.

Empower Clinics Portland Review: Our Final Thoughts

All in all, we reiterate our opinion that Empower Clinics is one of the finest medical cannabis operations in the Portland Oregon area – if not the entire West Coast of the USA. Their professional services are unmatched, and they have made the leap to offer additional products and services that other competing organizations simply can’t provide.

For example, their state-of-the-art phytocannabinoid extraction facility in Portland has allowed them to produce a proprietary line of CBD distillates, isolates, and full-spectrum CBD oils that qualified medical cannabis patients can use to help treat a wide array of ailments and conditions.

Hands down, this is one of the best medical clinics that you are going to find. For over five years they have been helping people with their cannabis needs, educating them and providing extraordinary service.
We give this medical clinic an AAA rating. Keep up the good work guys!
