Medical cannabis use is growing fast, yet the education on how to safely adapt it into one's lifestyle isn't mainstream in most areas. I am one of the many cannabis patients whose lives was dramatically changed after the health care system failed. Since January 2017 I have dedicated my life to the study of this herb and the process of preparing it to be used as medicine, including growing. Online "schools" are popping up everywhere to "certify" cannabis coaches and quite honestly, this worries me. Basic knowledge and facts on the endocannabinoid system that are being taught are very necessary, but only with hands on and personal experience can one instruct with integrity and authority. I am truly excited to be able to instruct others who may feel lost in this advertising filled market, to gain the knowledge to make wise choices from my knowledge and experience. From CBD to THC, terpenes to tinctures, we can partner together for your cannabis journey. I am also happy to work along with any of your doctors as well.
