Welcome to the Hemp Love podcast! In this episode, hosts Arianne and Megan, both cannabis nurses, share their passion for hemp and cannabis and how they got started in the field. Arianne became interested in cannabis medicine while helping her father transition off opioids, using cannabis as a safer alternative for managing chronic pain. Megan, a hospice nurse, saw the need for medical guidance in using hemp and cannabis, especially among elderly patients, which inspired her to fill that gap.
As cannabis nurses, Arianne and Megan take a holistic approach to cannabis therapeutics, considering the mind, body, and spirit. They emphasize that cannabis is just one tool in their toolbox, and they help clients with nutrition, movement, mindfulness practices, and spirituality to support overall well-being alongside cannabis use.
They address the challenges patients face when navigating dispensaries, where budtenders often lack sufficient knowledge and guidance. Arianne and Megan offer online wellness consultations to educate and guide individuals in using cannabis optimally. They provide insights into understanding different cannabinoids, including minor cannabinoids like CBG and CBN, and how they can impact health and well-being.
The hosts stress the importance of quality products and the need for organic cannabis to avoid harmful toxins. They encourage consumers to ask questions, request terpene profiles, and look for lab testing results (certificate of analysis) to ensure the efficacy and safety of the products they choose.
Arianne and Megan share heartwarming stories of patients who have benefited from their services. They discuss the challenges in the medical community regarding the acceptance and understanding of cannabis as medicine, but also highlight their collaboration with physicians to bridge the gap and provide patients with comprehensive care.
The hosts explain how their formulated products target specific issues like gut health, anxiety, pain, and sleep.
In conclusion, Arianne and Megan urge listeners to stay curious, ask questions, and take control of their health by exploring the potential benefits of cannabis medicine. They emphasize the power of education, empowerment, and collaboration to bring about positive changes in the perception and utilization of cannabis for healing and well-being.
This episode offers valuable insights into cannabis nursing, the importance of quality products, the role of minor cannabinoids and terpenes, and the need for informed decision-making in cannabis use.
