Our vision is patients first. At CxC, we aim to provide patients with a simple, user-intuitive mobile application that will address the needs of medical marijuana-based medical care and treatment for qualifying ages and qualifying medical conditions. When it comes to cannabis and mobile technology, our goal is for Ohioans to have an optimal, stress-free experience when selecting the best options for medical marijuana.
CxC Mobile App
The CxC mobile application will allow patients to locate medical clinics and local dispensaries in Ohio, as well as provide a means to track usage history via a personalized health journal. Patients can review doctor recommendations, and address overall best practices for medical marijuana use.
The application also includes a detailed in-app library and cannabis glossary detailing each strain and its optimal uses based on patient symptoms. Last, we will provide the latest news and tips related to health and medical marijuana.
“Every 19 minutes somebody dies of a prescription drug overdose. It doesn’t happen with marijuana.”

Our founder, Axaviar Burrows, is an Ohio native. He struggled with witnessing his stepmother take multiple pharmaceuticals growing up, with no positive effect. She suffers from fibromyalgia, a painful, incurable nerve condition that is difficult to manage both pain and symptoms. He discovered that the only thing that worked for her was medical marijuana.
As an active church and community member, the legalization of marijuana for medicinal use in Ohio has alleviated some of the shame and embarrassment she feels when using cannabis for pain management.
This is a common thread among cannabis users in Ohio. With the stigma of marijuana use fading away, our platform offers a solution that will provide solace for medical marijuana patients just like Axaviar’s stepmother and other Ohioans who share a common experience.
Co-Founder Harold Eichelberger, a Gary, Indiana native came on board as a medical marijuana supporter who has been on anti-seizure prescribed medication for over 13 years to treat his epilepsy. He understands how prescribed pills can impact the body. Harold’s goal is to ditch the pills, and pass along the message to Ohioans.
