Life coach. Nutrition coach. Business coach. Spiritual coach. What’s next?
Yes, cannabis coach. It’s real and it’s happening right now.
If you’re already practicing in some aspect of healthcare…as a nurse, nutritionist, herbalist, massage therapist, nutrition coach, health coach…and looking for ways to expand your scope of service then cannabis coaching may be just the ticket. There is a genuine need and demand among consumers who have medical marijuana cards as well as the larger community who just wants to know more about how to use this healing herb in their life. Whether it’s for medical marijuana or CBD products, professionals who can provide credible guidance are in demand.
Let’s face it; education has never really been in the doctor’s wheelhouse. The reality of today’s 10-minute appointment leaves no time for a physician to counsel and guide patients, especially on an emerging topic like medical cannabis. Enter the cannabis coach.
Is Cannabis Coaching Really a Career?But before entering into the brave new world of cannabis coaching, one must seek out cannabis education and training. This is critical because this new arena of healthcare must be grounded in reliable, sound science with legitimate advice dispensed to patients. If you’re thinking about getting into this as a new career path, then do your homework and get properly trained. And to broaden your appeal and provide clients with better health outcomes, select a training program that integrates cannabis with other healing modalities such as acupuncture, aromatherapy, nutrition, yoga and so forth. These modalities work synergistically with cannabis resulting in happier, healthier clients.
