Real-world, evidence-based cannabis resources for healthcare professionals and clinicians who are ready to learn more about cannabis and how they can incorporate cannabis therapeutics into their own practice.
Cannabis For Healthcare Professionals
Cannabis is the forefront of the future of medicine and there is no better time than now for healthcare professionals to invest in their education and ability to be cannabis competent providers.
It has been a great joy to see how many of my well-respected colleagues ranging from physicians, registered dietitian nutritionists, health coaches and more have shown interest in using cannabis as medicine inside their practice
Originally trained as a registered dietitian nutritionist, I went back to school to become a certified Holistic Cannabis Practitioner. I have since worked with hundreds of clients to provide responsible, evidence-based cannabis education as a trustworthy healthcare provider.
Today, I am thankful that practitioners and consumers alike are quickly coming around to the idea that there are many evidence-based, therapeutic, and medicinal uses for cannabis.
It is no secret that when used appropriately, cannabis is a safe and effective medicine for a wide range of conditions from anxiety and depression to autoimmune conditions and more.
Many of the debilitating health issues that face our clients, like Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Fibromyalgia, and Migraines, have both scientific and anecdotal evidence to show how cannabis can play an integral role in the restoration of health.
Cannabis has the ability to provide your patients with the tools needed to manage everyday, simple health conditions and enhance overall health, wellness, and wellbeing on a of levels physically, mentally and emotionally.
It is my personal and professional goal that with my education, my passion, and my platforms I will be able to help to change the face of cannabis users by promoting skillful use, not justified abuse, for mainstream medical and therapeutic care.
Unfortunately, due to the 100-year federal ban on cannabis, there has been little attention paid to the medical mysteries that are left to be explored in relation to cannabis as medicine.
Thankfully, everyday great strides are made in the medical and recreational cannabis movements to inch our country towards full federal legalization. To date, cannabis is still federally illegal, but eleven states and the District of Columbia have legalized cannabis for adult, recreational use.
When used appropriately cannabis is a safe and effective medicine for a wide range of therapeutic indications. However, recommendations for appropriate use require an individual who is properly educated in both healthcare, and the cannabis plant, to be able to make educated, informed, and recommendations to the public.
That’s where you come in, a healthcare provider who is ready and eager to looking for resources to enhance and support your cannabis understanding and cannabis counseling skills. Here you will find resources to help you provide evidence-based information for yourself, to your clients, and beyond.
