Frequently Asked Questions
A skin tag is bits of skin- or flesh-colored tissue that project from the surrounding skin from a small, narrow stalk or peduncle . Generally, skin tags are not bothersome. They appear in areas where the skin folds or bears considerable friction like the armpits, neck and thighs. They are simple accumulation of extra cells that are painless.
More often than not, skin tags are not cancerous. These benign masses of skin fall off on their own in most scenarios. However, there are many cases where the skin tags can hurt and be bothersome. In such a situation, you may need a special treatment to get them removed.
Wondering about why skin tags occur?
Obesity and being moderately overweight (even temporary increases) dramatically increase the chances of having skin tags. Normal weight individuals with larger breasts are also more prone to skin tags under their breasts.
Obesity and skin tags are connected by means of extra areas of friction and hormonal changes in the body that occur due to weight gain. First, obesity is generally associated with hyperinsulinemia which is associated with increase of growth tissues. A similar case among obeses people is the increase of leptin that stimulates the growth factors and rapid increase of epithelial cells in the epidermis. The result of such changes is skin tags.
Wondering about how to get rid of skin tags.
No, you should not remove skin tags on your own. All medical professionals advise against trying anything to remove your skin tag at home. There are several reasons for the same.
The internet is full of many DIY videos claiming the effectiveness of removing skin tags at home. It may sound intriguing but can turn your benign skin tag into a more serious issue. For starters, your skin tag may not have any nerves but the tiny stalk connecting it to your skin does. So, a wrong cut and you may end up in pain. The skin tags also bleed and can cause a larger more prominent open scar if not dealt with properly. The scar or wound of improper removal can also end up getting infected and leave you with a bigger problem that a simple skin tag.
Read here what problems are caused by skin tags.
Except for the cosmetic appearance, skin tags essentially cause no physical pain or discomfort. These tiny skin growths generally cause symptoms when they are repeatedly irritated. Cosmetic removal for unsightly appearance is perhaps the most common reason skin tags are removed. Occasionally, a tag may require removal because it has become irritated and red from bleeding (hemorrhage) or black from twisting and dying of the skin tissue (necrosis). Sometimes, they may become snagged by clothing, jewelry, pets, or seatbelts, causing pain or discomfort. Overall these are very benign growths that have no cancer (malignant) potential.
Occasionally, a tag may spontaneously fall off without any pain or discomfort. This may occur after the tag has twisted on itself at the stalk base, interrupting the blood flow to the tag.
Confused about Will skin tags grow back if you cut them off?
Skin tags do not ‘seed’ or spread like an infection. The development of skin tags is more related to individual factors like obesity, hormonal factors, or lifestyle choices. Such factors decide how often and if you will experience skin tags or not.

In 2001 - Humble Beginnings
As the medical cannabis scene grew in Santa Ana and the surrounding region, it was hard to be ignored. Most cannabis users that found the plant to be therapeutic had to acquire it in the black market, undertaking multiple legal and safety risks. Cannabis users usually were stigmatized and they had to use cannabis secretly and illicitly.
In 2007 - Cannabis Saves our Staff
Then 2007-2009 our own medical staff was suffering from anxiety, and appetite issues. We were looking for alternatives to prescription medication and traditional treatments. It was obvious that Cannabis as medicine works, works effectively, and is more affordable than prescription medication. Looking at these facts, we made a clear decision, we had to embrace medical cannabis even if it meant an uncertain future.
In 2016 - Telemedicine
In 2016 with the legalization of telemedicine, we were able to expand our service entirely online offering access across the entire state. We improved on our process to make access even simple, more convenient, and mobile friendly. We set the standard for HIPAA Compliant, fast friendly evaluations with instant PDF delivery via email. We put our patients first and make sure we always deliver documents on time and without error. With our original goals and vision in mind, we took this opportunity to maximize the accessibility we could offer the public
In 2018 - Recreational
In 2018, with the legalization of Cannabis in California, medical cards were not longer required to gain access to many dispensaries. However, medical cards took a different role – they allowed patients to pay less in taxes, grow, carry, and purchase more, and access more products.
In 2019 - Making an Impact
In 2019, the climate has changed but our values have not. We stand firm in our belief that everyone should have access, and that medical patients deserve to pay less in taxes. We want to make sure recreational limits are not imposed on those that truly use cannabis.and also that these people now where to go. To accomplish this we created our dispensary listings and independently verify legit operations
