Cannabis and Healthcare Professionals
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 in their practice
Originally trained as a registered dietitian nutritionist, I myself worked in traditional healthcare before I choose to expand my education and become a certified Holistic Cannabis Practitioner.
Today, I am thankful that practitioners and consumers alike are 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 patients have both scientific and anecdotal evidence to show how cannabis can play an integral role in the restoration of good health.
Cannabis has the ability to provide patients with the tools needed to manage everyday, simple health conditions on all levels physically, mentally, and emotionally.
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, every day great strides are made in the medical and recreational cannabis movements to inch our country towards full federal legalization.
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 consume 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.
