If you are looking at this website, you or a loved one are likely dealing with chronic pain, stress/anxiety, sleep issues or are just curious to learn what CBD and cannabis can do for you. Read on...
This is the place to learn about medical cannabis: what it is and how it can help you or your loved one. Did you know that the cannabis plant has safely been used by humans for thousands of years? Many of us have thought of "marijuana" only as an illicit drug that is intoxicating. While people are good at finding ways to abuse certain substances, it is important to be open to the scientific knowledge that has been gained since the 1990's and learn the myths and truths about the cannabis plant.
You can find more information about cannabis in the "Articles" section.
Speak with a Registered Nurse who will go over your medical history and current medications to help you formulate a plan for using medical cannabis to address your particular health issues.
Now offering Zoom appointments as well as in person.

The pandemic has left many feeling isolated and disconnected from others. Being alone with one's thoughts can sometimes lead to increased anxiety and despair. Talking to a therapist can be expensive ($120-$250/hr) when sometimes all you need is a friend to listen to you while you talk things through. Although I am not a trained therapist, I have experience as a nurse, wife, parent (two sons in their 20s), sister, daughter and caregiver of an elderly mother with dementia, business owner and friend to bring to the conversation. Because some people don't feel they can share their struggles with family or friends without judgement, fear of harming the relationship, or other valid reason, I'm offering this "Buddy System" approach so you don't have to go it alone.
Benefits of a Talk Session:

In person cannabis education has been suspended during the COVID-19 pandemic but I am doing programs online through Zoom.
We also have a group that meets virtually once a month called I CANN TOO via Zoom. We meet on the 2nd Wednesday of the month from 4:00-5:00pm to discuss how CBD works for us, ask questions and learn from each other. For those with green thumbs, we even cover growing cannabis for medicinal purposes, how to use it in the raw form or make topical balms for pain relief.
Email Sue if you would like to get on the list for future zoom meetings at firstname.lastname@example.org
The I CANN TOO schedule is below in the events section.
Cannabis has commonly been known as "marijuana" and the two terms can be used interchangeably. However, from a medical perspective, the term cannabis is more appropriate.
Humans have interacted with the cannabis plant for thousands of years all over the world and only since 1937, has it been federally illegal in the United States. Historically, cannabis has been used as an herbal remedy for a long list of ailments, but the top three are pain, anxiety and sleep disturbances.
Scientists have identified over 100 biologically active components in the cannabis plant called, cannabinoids. The two most studied and most prevalent in the plant are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). These two and the other minor cannabinoids are thought to possess significant medicinal benefits. The cannabinoid THC is the one responsible for causing the "high" associated with cannabis, while CBD is not intoxicating and does not cause a high. Both can be used therapeutically in the proper doses, but CBD is gaining popularity as a natural medicine for the long list of health benefits it provides, including:
anti-anxiety, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, immune system modulating, analgesic, anti-spasmotic, and anti-convulsant.
There are many cannabis products on the market with different modes of administration (oil, sublingual tincture, topical balm or cream, capsules and inhalation) which can make someone new to cannabis quite overwhelmed. I remember feeling that way myself and the key is education. Learn how cannabis can be used as medicine and how it works with our internal "endogenous cannabinoid system" (ECS) to maintain balance or homeostasis within our body.
Spend up to 90 minutes with a nurse to go over current health concerns, past medical history, current medications and supplements. Receive education on cannabis therapy, diet and lifestyle choices that could impact health. Receive guidance on product selection and dosing.
Discuss progress and fine tune dosing, product use and any dietary changes. Ask questions.
Schedule a confidential conversation with Nurse Sue to talk through issues that you are dealing with.
Call Sue to schedule an educational presentation for your group: senior centers, church group, garden club, community group, etc.
Insurance does not cover fees at this time and payment must be made at time of appointment.
