SUPPORTING people using CANNABIS as a complimentary and alternative THERAPY
HOW PLANT MEDICINE CAN HELP YOU
Cannabis, including CBD from hemp, may provide a positive effect on the human body and be used as alternative or adjunct therapy. It may help with pain, nausea, inflammation, anxiety, sleep as well as many other conditions. In addition to CBD and THC, cannabis contains hundreds of other compounds, each with different medical effects.
Finding the right strain, delivery method and dosage is confusing and will likely require a methodical and consistent approach over a period of time. Cannabis (including CBD) is unlike other medicines due to its range of effective dosage. Each individual requires a different dose. Often physicians poorly coordinate with their patients, and many people
experiment on their own.
The internet is filled with misinformation. Seventy percent of CBD products are mislabeled.
Some do not even contain CBD!
You should have the best information possible
before trying plant medicine if you have a medical
condition or use certain pharmaceuticals,
so you can avoid safety concerns.
I can guide you through the process and give you the tools to achieve success safely and with the best collaboration
with your physician.
